  • Junk Modelling - In Pre Nursery, creative play is a big part of our curriculum. Junk modelling is part of this and without the help of parents we can’t quite keep the junk modelling bins full! So, please think of us before throwing away any cereal boxes, shoe boxes, kitchen rolls, egg cartons etc. Your rubbish is our treasure!
  • School wll be closed from 28th of September to the 6th of October.  We look forward to seeing everyone when they return on the 7th of October- have a wonderful break!

OUR LEARNING THEME:  OUR SENSES

All our Pre Nursery children will be focusing on their five senses.  We will be exploring the various textures we touch with our fingers, the different smells that we like/dislike,  and loud and soft sounds we create in school.  We will do a taste session to identify  different tastes in our food and snacks.The students will explore the various colours and shapes found around our classroom and compare the physical differences they can see.

Key vocabulary: eyes, sight, hands, touch, nose, smell, ears, hear, mouth, taste

KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE WORLD

The children will be encouraged to talk about the things that they taste, touch, smell, hear and see.  They will use their new vocabulary to talk about what they have observed.  The students will be encouraged to give their opinions on  which they like the best.

`Wat is houden van?`vraag Jules aan mama.  Mama vertelt hoe papa, zus, opa, Louise en zelfs de hond dat aan hem tonen.  Hoe tonen wij dat we van mama en papa houden? 

We lezen de mooie klassieker `Raad eens hoeveel ik van je hou`van Sam Mc Bratney en Anita Jeram waarin Hazeltje aan Grote Haas vertelt hoeveel hij van hem houdt.  U kan dit boek samen met uw kind herbekijken op  You Tube.
