New Life has been our focus this half term. Our Guinea Pigs have had babies and we have even hatched our own Chick, which the children named Edgbert Fluffy Pants 🙂 Mr Fluffy pants is residing between our Pre-School setting and one of our Staff’s houses at the moment as he requires lots of tender care. The children have been so lucky to be able to experience first hand a life process, from incubating the egg, to seeing it hatch to looking after it daily. We now cant wait to see Suzanne’s new grandchild too, as her daughter Sophie has been visiting the Pre-School regularly and the children have been measuring her bump. We have been using real life fruit to demonstrate the size of the baby to the children.
As the Royal Wedding approaches the children have been dressing up as brides and grooms role playing using our Gazova as a church – we have been talking about Castles and different places people live as well as making our own wedding cakes and bouquets. The children have been bringing in wedding pictures of their parents and events that they have attended, it has been a great talking topic where new language is introduced and a sense of community.
