Activities this term

PE and Show & Tell 
Both of these activities are an excellent way for children to learn skills that will be vital to them upon starting school.

During PE children learn to take part in group games/exercise and later in the term practice changing from their home clothes to PE clothes. In the Summer Term we ask that your child has a pair of shorts and t-shirt to change into for PE sessions. Pumps are not needed as we take shoes and socks off (please remember to label all clothing and belongings).

During Show & Tell children develop the confidence to stand up and articulate in front of their peers and teachers, an important life skill. Children are encouraged to bring objects from home – these need to be labelled with their name and ideally in relation to the current learning topic. If an object is not brought in your child will be encouraged to take part by talking about something of their choice.

Big School Club
During Big School Club your child will learn specific skills, which will help them with the transition to school. In their last term we will arrange visits with their schools. We alternate the days for ‘Big School’ activities.

Change of clothes

We ask that each child keeps a spare change of clothing in their pre-school bag in case of accidents, water spillages etc. We also ask that any items of clothing borrowed from pre-school are returned please.
