 Week 3

This week we have been exploring the story 'We're going on a Bear Hunt.' We explored sensory trays for each part of the story, to immerse ourselves in it! We took part in lots of Bear Hunt activities, including making a bear cave, painting bear paw prints, retelling the story through actions, making bear hunt story maps and learning about real black bears. 

We visited the woodland this week to learn our woodland rules and to think about how bears might move through the woodland. Lots of children were showing interest in playing with coins last week, so this week we had a 'Pre-School shop' in class and enjoyed playing at shopping and being the shopkeeper. 

Week 2

This week we met our class puppets 'Sarah and Sam'. Sarah and Sam have been showing us some Personal, Social and Emotional skills including: using kind hands, sharing, and how to walk safely and not run in the classroom! We read the Rainbow Fish and worked together to decorate a huge rainbow fish. We also began to think about families and who we have in our family. We are still enjoying reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears and this week we decorated some bear cupcakes! YUMMY!


 Our first week in Pre-School!

This week we have been getting to know our new teachers and learning the rules and routines of our class. We have been exploring all the fun to be had indoors and outdoors and have read 'Goldilocks and The Three Bears' to start off our Bear topic.
