A few things we have been doing…..

Pre-School Children in Brixworth Bulletin

Each year, the Brixworth Christian Fellowship asks the Parish Council to donate towards making a calendar to sell to the public and raise funds for a club or organisation in the community. This year, we have been chosen which we are thrilled about!

Each month on the calendar will be a photograph of a club or organisation but one of those months will be us. A mention of the calendar will be in the next Brixworth Bulletin edition. Please look out for it! the photograph used in the Bulletin is shown below. All parents were notified on Thursday and are happy for their child to be included. Thank you.

This week, we celebrated Diwali at pre-school, The Hindu festival of lights. The children made Diwali Rangoli pictures using coloured rice, clay diva lamps with tea lights which they took home and they helped make Naan breads.

W/C 13th October

Our role play area was set-up as a home corner. The children enjoy vacuuming, cleaning and cooking dinner….im sure they are just as much help at home?! We had some nice weather this week so the children enjoyed playing outside and we made ‘root top’ gardens using parsnips and carrots. We will be watching them grow. The children made some lovely seed pendants using seeds and beans. The paint was out and the children love painting autumn leaves and printing with them. We also made our own spider webs and decorated them. Claire came in to help out this week and enjoyed playing hopscotch with them and making ice cream sundae’s out of play dough. We also had a special visitor in – Rev. Walters. The children all came in with a donation from home to hand over to him for harvest.

W/C 6th October

What a busy week! We had the paint out and enjoyed getting messy mixing colours with our hands, printing with vegetables, hand printing and bubble printing! We made sensory squishy bags which we took home. A lady called Rachel visited us and brought in her puppy called Jess and the children got to stroke her and found out all about how to look after a puppy. We brought in pictures from home of our family and presented them to our pre-school friends.

W/C 29th Sept

This week, the children have been having fun creating models for junk and making fabric collages. Our role play area continued to be a home corner whilst new children settled into pre-school. We planted our very own cress heads. The children will enjoy watching the hair grow at home! We played with some foam (soap flakes) and the children enjoyed the texture and how they smell. More conker collecting took place and we have a great collection now for our sensory tray in pre-school!
