Children In Need Day

Our pyjama day for Children In Need last Friday was exciting!

The children made Pudsey biscuits and raised a brilliant amount of £45!

Helicopter!

The children had some spontaneous learning recently as a helicopter landed in the field next to Pre-school. We went to see it and were invited by the pilot to have photos taken and look around it. The children were very excited as were the staff. We played and talked about helicopters and other transport all session.

Remembrance Day

Last week the children learned about Remembrance Day and made poppy pictures to remember the people who keep us safe. We watched an early years video on remembrance and they have all understood in their own way why we wear poppies:
” to remember someone” says Hannah
” cos people died when they looked after us fighting, but we winned , I don’t know why they fight because they die” says Carys.
