On our first two weeks of Pre-school we did All About Me! We painted portraits of ourselves, talked about our families, shared pictures of ourselves as babies and explored/settled into Pre-School.
The next week we did our favourite books and teddies from home. The children shared their books and their teddies with their friends and talked about them at carpet time.
On the next two weeks, the children chose one of their favourite stories 'The Three Little Pigs' as the topic. We listened to the story in many different ways - a story book, on the computer and a puppet show. The children acted out the story wearing masks, painted pictures from the story and created their very own junk model houses and puppets.
The last two weeks before half term the children learnt about Autumn and Diwali. At snack time the children tried lots of different Indian foods. We learnt some Bollywood dancing, made diva candles, danced with instruments, made and cooked chapattis and dressed up in Indian outfits. The children really enjoyed learning about Autumn; the children created some fantastic leaf spirals, pumpkin pictures and helped to carve the pumpkins. The children also enjoyed the outdoor activities from muddy puddle walks to Rangoli painting.
