Hello preschool and welcome back!
This week Libby and I were very excited to call many of our families to see how you are. We were so happy that many of the children confidently spoke to us on the phone and share their Easter news; the Easter bunny has been very busy and very generous. It was lovely to answer questions too, for example, "Do you like paw patrol?" "Are you ok Tara?". It was so heart warming to hear how well you are all doing and how you have adapted to this new way of life. If you didn't receive a call this week, you will hear from one of us over the next few weeks.
We may all be at home but that hasn't stopped us from learning. We have started our days as we do at preschool with our hello song. I hope you enjoyed joining in with me.
Within our literacy tasks this week you have created shopping lists, planned a movie night; I loved the idea of creating your own cinema tickets, shared your favourite stories, continued with the letter formation within your name and you have had the opportunity to listen to a story via tapestry each day told by me. Next week Libby will share a story with you each day.
For our mathematics you explored number 2 using number blocks to help you. You have explored 2 in multiple contexts including, counting objects, sounds and movement. I enjoyed seeing your print patterns where you used 2 of something on your body. You have also been busy completing number blocks quizzes and singing lots of number songs.
You have been very busy during your phonics sessions. Many of you are accessing the Ruth Miskin Set 1 daily session. It is lovely to see you engaging with this task. I am amazed at how everybody's letter formation has improved – wow! Thank you also for your updates on dough disco and your Fred talk activities.
If that wasn't enough, you have also engaged with your learning project activities. This weeks focus was view points. You have been on sight hunts; I have loved your creations of view finders, recorded how many cars, people, bikes etc go past your house, observed what you can see out of your window and have created portraits.
What I have loved seeing are all the experiences with your families you have shared whist at home. You have been camping in your garden, baking, enjoying walks, bike rides, water fights, fun in the paddling, picnics, tea party's and much more...
We can't wait to see you all again Monday, via tapestry.
Take care and stay safe our wonderful preschool families,
Tara, Libby and Ashleigh xx
