We have started our week as we mean to go on and that is with LOTS of fun :-). We have played on our see-saws and slides, with a tray of compost digging and scooping, filling bowls and containers. We have had lots of fun chasing bubbles and seeing how many we could pop!. Then chasing and kicking balls around the garden too :-). Plus lots, lots more :-)

Our Faeries have thoroughly enjoyed their outdoor play on this beautiful sunny spring day. They have relaxed in the warm sun with a good book, filled large AND small vehicles with woodchip and watched the butterflies dance in the air as they fluttered from flower to flower.

Our Faeries have had an adventurous day starting with an Easter egg hunt. Each of our faeries found an egg, they are very good at finding just where they are :-). Adding to our Easter fun, we all helped to make chocolate Easter nests. After mixing and stirring all of the chocolate into the shredded wheat, we each carefully spooned our mixture into a cake case then carefully placed little chocolate eggs on top :-).

It has been a gorgeous spring sunny day here at Hillcrest and our pre-schoolers have taken full advantage of it. Rolling down the grass hill with friends is great fun. We’ve played a game of roll the tyre to our friends to see who could roll it the furthest. It has been a thoroughly enjoyable start to our week :-)

When we wanted a little rest we had fun indoors making spring flower pictures and building wonderful towers :-)

A fun and creative day for our Elves :-)

DSCN1956 DSCN1952 DSCN1948 DSCN1953

It has been a fun packed creative day for our Elves today. They have played with a huge tray of rice, scooping it up using spades, spoons and scoops, transferring it into containers, experimenting with colanders and seeing what happens when you pour rice into it :-).

We have also made fabulous models today using lots of lovely materials to stick and create. I’m sure you’ll agree, when you take them home, that they are wonderful little creations.

 

We are all looking forward to another fun packed week ahead :-)

Nature Watch :-)

It has been a wonderful spring day and the weather has been lovely. We have spent time exploring the insect life in our garden. It was amazing when we found a beautiful ladybird. We held it very gently and let it crawl along our hands and arms. When the ladybird had finished exploring it flew away :-). Now we are going to make our own model ladybirds to play with in the garden.                                                                   DSCF3287   DSCF3286 DSCF3283                                       DSCF3282 DSCF3281 DSCF3278 DSCF3274

The life cycle of a frog is a one of the wonders we are really enjoying watching in Pre-school. Today we have been making wonderful lily pads to add to our display on the wall in our log cabin. We decorated them with a wide variety of green textile collage; we think they will be a fabulous addition to our pond when they are dry. Please feel free to come and take a look, you are all very welcome.

What a fabulous start to our week :-)

What a busy start to our Elves week. They have had so much fun playing with sawdust and exploring all of its wonderful properties, how it feels and smells, how it floats through the air when you throw it :-). We have also been very creative making Easter Cards to take home, drawing beautiful pictures using chunky chalks and painting using our hands and fingers, in so many different ways, making wonderful marks on our paper. It’s only Monday and we are so looking forward to lots more fun ahead :-)
