Manager's Blog 5th Jan

Welcome back after a lovely Christmas and New year break, I hope you all had a good two weeks with family and friends. 

For our first two days back, we have been focussing on settling the children back into the preschool routines and finding out all about their fun christmas events! The children have enjoyed exploring a variety of old and new activities and resources as we got back into the swing of preschool life.

We kick off our new year learning focus next week which is 'Around the World' and start to learn about some cold countries. This will mainly be Nordic countries including Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland. We will be talking about what we wear in the cold weather, different traditions in these countries, animals that live in these cold climates making flags and looking at maps. A busy week ahead!

Reminders:

  • Please continue to bring suitable clothing, including gloves, each day for all children, thank you.
