Pre-school

Welcome to Pre-School's page. Here you can enjoy looking at photos of our learning and access games and websites that can help to take the children's learning further. 
 
Pre-School Staff:
Mrs Pickering (Lead Practitioner)
Mrs Lomas (Deputy Lead Practitioner)
Ms Morel (Teaching Assistant)  
 
Our topics during the autumn term:
Teddies & Bears - first half
Colour - second half 
 
As well as enjoying stories, rhymes and songs linked to our topics we will help the children to investigate some non-fiction aspects too. There will be lots of opportunities for role play, craft and creativity, and plenty of outdoor activities. 
 
Our visits to the nature area are on Monday mornings and Thursday afternoons. 
We play on the school field on Tuesday afternoons and Friday mornings. 
Please provide your child with a pair of named wellington boots for these sessions as the grass is now often wet and the nature area is becoming muddy. Thank you :)
