News From The Rooms
Welcome from the Kettering Pre-School rooms, with all the latest childcare news in November-December 2016.
From 24 to 36 months
Throughout November we have continued to look at how the environment is changing from autumn into winter and we have been having discussion about how the weather might change throughout December.
As well as this we have also been looking at under the sea creatures, this extended onto an adult lead activity with a rainbow trout for the children to explore in the water tray.
From 3 to 5 years
The same themes have been continued with our 3 – 5 year olds, but their learning has been extended through discussion about where sea creatures live and the environments they need to be in. The children that experienced the rainbow trout in the water tray were able to follow on from it in their own learning and play.
Moving forward into December, we are excited about our Christmas tea party and our trip to the theatre to watch Beauty and the Beast, to get into the season of Christmas.
Bear In Mind
Important Things To Bear In Mind
The last day of Pre – School is Friday 16th December and we return in the new year on Monday 9th December. Over the Christmas could you please take the opportunity to get photos of your children with their families so that in the new year we can have discussions about our families.
