06-02-2019New work

We are pleased and privileged to have new starters this term.

We follow children’s interests when we plan so we decide some themes to explore and then we see if children respond well to these, if not we change accordingly.

The intention in the first couple of weeks is to talk about Healthy food – fruit and veg and we also use books to link this concept to support extension in literacy by recalling parts of stories (for example “Handa’s Surprise”) We will select easy recipes that the children can make themselves and try them at preschool. We find that children sometimes are not familiar with different foods, so we also use the opportunity of celebrations to try different tastes (respectful of allergies)
