February flew by! It was a month full of festivities with CNY, Valentine’s day, Pancake day and 3 birthdays!
The week gone was a lot of fun.
Daniel celebrated his 3rd birthday and all his friends were very impressed by the spiderman cake. Our theme was all about people in the community. As well as going out in the community, we were fortunate to have our local librarian, Stephen, come to us.
The children know Stephen from our weekly library visits but it was so nice to have him at our setting.
You may have noticed the improvements we are making to our outdoor area. Improvements to this area is on our action plan and we are so pleased with the improvements we have made as the children are really enjoying it. Recently we have added tyres, log stepping stones, a mud kitchen and the newest addition is the ‘bug hotel’.
Our week ended with the fabulous Lilly and Larry session. I am amazed at the confidence of our little ones and have included a short video of what they get up to Click on the link below.
Our Preschool group are coming on leaps and bounds with their phonics. They have now gone through the sounds for M A S D T N O I G. Yasmine used the theme of Opticians to find a fun way to reinforce this learning.
Woodlands focused on numbers this week and are doing a fabulous job. The children went fishing for numbers and were very excited to ‘catch’ and identify numbers. Cooking Fridays was fabulous this week as all the groups pulled out all the stops. The Woodlands Pitta bread crisps were delicious!
Diggers loved walking about and meeting people in the local community. They stopped off at the bakery and brought us back some tasty treats. They also made a visit to the opticians and took an eye test. We have had a few new joiners to Diggers and it is lovely to see them settle.
