break. We were very pleased that so many of them had spent some
time with their family and friends collecting lots of items to do with
autumn. We have a huge collection of beautiful coloured leaves, twigs,
conkers, chestnuts, acorns, fruits, feathers and pine cones. So far we
have made a big autumn tree with these and some smaller autumn collages
too. Next week we will continue this and also use some of the items
for matching and sorting games.
A lot of money has been collected from sponsorship and it is still
coming in so we will let you know the grand total at the end of next week.
Thank you very much for supporting us and helping to raise some much needed
money for our pre-school.
We have made lots of firework pictures using paint, teabags, straws, chalks
and lots of lovely glitter. Children painted their hands red and made
a handprint wreath which we will hang up to help us remember all those
soldiers, sailors and air crew who have died in the wars.
We had a visit from our friend Marvin (a persona doll) who spent some time
with the children at circle and singing time.
Our story this week was The 3 Billy Goats Gruff. We have read it each
day and the children have helped to act out the parts of the small, medium and
big goats and the troll and we have all had a turn at crossing the wooden
bridge, going ‘trip trap, trip trap’ ‘clip clop clip clop’ and stomp,
stomp, stomp stomp’
Today was very busy at Squirrels as the photographer came in to take photos
of the children. He will try to get the proofs back as soon as
