St. George's Day Celebration ~ 23rd April 2015
Children came to pre-school on Thursday 23rd April dressed as prince's, princesses and knights to celebrate St George's Day.
After discussing the George and the Dragon story, children designed their own shields.
We all enjoyed scones and jam for afternoon snack.
Children brought in a variety of English items to show at circle time such as a rose, an English flag and a teapot. One child brought in the English Dictionary which led to us thinking of words and finding out the meanings
Easter Egg Fundraiser ~ April 2015
Our annual fundraising event was another great success. It was lovely to welcome so many families to Treago in support of the preschool and thank everyone for their kind donations for the raffle prize.
All profits go directly towards funding the preschool and ensure that we can continue to provide excellent levels of care and resources for the children to further their learning in the preschool setting.
We welcomed 120 Easter Egg hunters and their families who all enjoyed the hunt and received an Easter Egg each for their efforts. We hosted an Easter Bonnet competition where the preschool children entered the bonnets they had created during preschool in the lead up to the event. The bonnet competition was won by Lydia for her very pretty creation. The children also decorated a cross with flowers as well as enjoying face painting, glitter tattoo's and our free bouncy castle whilst parents, grandparents and friends enjoyed a range of lovely cakes and tea.
Many thanks to all who helped out on the day and behind the scenes making the day a huge success.
World Book Day ~ March 2015
The preschool children joined the primary school to celebrate World Book Day by dressing as non-fiction characters and themes. We work very closely with the Primary School to build close relationships and this was another opportunity for the children to visit where they joined in activities related to their chosen theme. All of the children enjoyed dressing up and exploring related books with the older children and staff.
One of our themes was "Space"
Lambing Trip ~ March 2015
Preschool joined Year 1 for their annual trip to the farm in March to visit the newborn lambs. They learned about different activities on the farm as well as where their food comes from and how it is harvested.
We were lucky to meet lots of Newborn lambs where the preschool children enjoyed petting and holding them and learning more about how they grow from the farmer.
It was a great day enjoyed by all the children, staff and parent volunteers. The children continued their learning within the preschool setting with themes related to Spring.
