Spring

Dear Parents,
I just wanted to share the fantastic learning that the children are experiencing. They are all aware that Spring has sprung as they have watched the daffodils and tulips bloom in the garden. The potatoes have been planted and we are awaiting the shoots to sprout.
As they beaver away we can hear children using the new vocabulary, naming parts of the flowers,  naming spring flowers and knowing what a plant needs to enable it to grow! Learnt through action songs!
Gross motor activities are so important to develop co-ordination and balance which will in turn enable fine motor skills to develop. This half term the cars and bikes have been really popular. As the children are getting more confident . we are concentrating on control and spatial awareness. I wonder if your child will get their driving licence for negotiating the cone obstacle course!
If you are involving your child in planting vegetables please enrich their vocabulary by talking through what you are doing and why. Encourage them to think about the equipment you might need.
If you are out on bikes or scooters set your child a challenge—-can they negotiate through a line of stones/sticks.
We would love to hear through tapestry how you are extending your child’s learning. It is added to your child’s learning journey which at the end of their time at Pre-School is placed on a CD and is yours to keep forever.
Happy Mother’s Day weekend.
Karen
