The children always enjoy being outside and the dry, mild weather is making it even better!
They are using all of the areas in the garden and are learning how to look after themselves as well as the equipment and toys.

The children have been busy mathematicians this week. They've explored weight using wet sand in buckets, matched the sizes of nuts and bolts and fitting them together, and used large construction bricks to build a wall in the playground. 
Sneezy Bear has caused much laughter [and sneezing] at story time! We are collaging our own bear, like sneezy, for a display in the corridor outside pre-school. 
We are enjoying finding out about different breeds of bear from around the world and we're discovering that they have a lot in common.

The children use their mathematical skills while doing all sorts of activities at pre-school.
Playing with number cones helps them begin to recognise numerals and practice counting. Containers in the water tray encourage the children to explore capacity and weight. They even do a bit of problem solving at snack time, saying how many cups we need for the number of children in the group.

We are a week into term now and the children are settling beautifully.
Learning each others names can be tricky for young children but they are doing really well. There's some lovely sharing and turn taking too. The children are finding their way around the classrooms and are learning where resources are kept, and where to put them away!  
Over the next couple of days we will be giving the children their bookbags (if they don't already have one from last term). To get you and your child started, we have put a reading book in the bag along with a Songs & Rhymes book which includes this week's rhyme; 5 Little Bears. 
When your child has finished with the reading book you can help them exchange it for another one. The books are kept in a tray in the pre-school cloakroom. 
Each week we will help the children to learn a new rhyme. The rhyme will be printed and left in a tray in the cloakroom (next to the reading books) so it can be stuck into the rhyme book. We hope you enjoy helping your child practice their rhymes at home.
