30/11/18 Phonics Workshop
Nursery and Reception children enjoyed playing phonic games alongside family members. We talked about the different stages of reading development and activities to help learning at home.
Nursery and Reception enjoyed a visit from our local Police Community Support Officers, Chelsea and Liam. They came to investigate a ‘missing’ cake but luckily the culprit had left lots of clues for us to investigate. Chelsea and Liam helped the children to carefully collect the evidence. All the clues pointed to our Caretaker who was interviewed by the children. The evidence and cream smeared on his t-shirt and face led to his guilty conviction!
Chelsea and Liam talked to the children about how they work to help children and adults stay safe in our local community. Children enjoyed sharing their own thoughts about the role of Police Officers: “Police help you when you’re lost!” “They walk all around and keep us safe!”
Children learnt about the special clothes that Police wear and got to try on the different hats and items of clothing.
Children also had the opportunity to explore the Police van and sit in the Prisoner cell! Some children even sat in the drivers seat! We all covered our ears as they put on the sirens and blue lights.
A few of the children were so inspired they shared their ambitions to enter the force themselves! “When I grow up I want to be a Police man too!”
25/09/18 Dough Disco Workshop
Children and parents had lots of fun following instructions to make their own ‘no-cook’ play dough! We then went through a series of hand and finger exercises designed to improve fine muscle control. The movements develop children’s fine motor and gross motor dexterity, hand-eye coordination and self-esteem. We practised these exercises to the song ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams!
