Pre-School Easter term

We have had a wonderful term here at Pre-School!  

Worm News!

The children have been fascinated by our wormery, created with the help of Katrine Harding using compost and sand. We have collected leaves and grass to put on top and watched the worms take it down into their burrows The children have even been brave enough to hold them and look at them closely, observing how they move an seeing which are longer or shorter.

Summer Term - May 2014

Our topic for the next few weeks will be "Growing". We will be finding out what it is that people, plants and animals need to grow, and we will be planting lots of seeds. We will also learn about the parts of plants such as petals, stems and roots. We will be developing the outside area into a shady garden using the wonderful gardening equipment that has been kindly donated to us.

Creepy Crawlies

Doddi Pre-School have been having a fabulous time this term learning all about clever ants and worms. Mrs Harding kindly volunteered to help our children learn all about gardens and the creatures that help. The children helped to build a wormery, carefully building up layers of different soil so that we can see the worms tunnelling through. The week after they have been able to study their very own ant colony. The children have been fascinated - thank you Mrs Harding!
