To celebrate the beautiful weather, Andrea suggested that we have a Teddy bears picnic today. All the children bought in their favourite teddies who then joined them for the picnic. It was a lot of fun.
Today we completed our 'Muddy puddles walk' for Save the children. We walked around the ponds spotting many ducklings as we went, we also had some good fun climbing the trees. The children all then enjoyed an ice cream which was kindly donated by Roskillys, followed by the obligatory play on the tractor and then a visit to the animals. It was a very enjoyable morning and a big thank you to all the parents and grandparents who came along with us. We raised an impressive £379.50 for Save the children.
We were very lucky today to go on our annual visit to see the lambs at Lanarth. The children had a fabulous time and really enjoyed their morning. A huge thank you to Nessie, Micky, Percy and Bella Tylor for giving us such a lovely experience.
We held our end of term party today in the Methodist hall. The children really enjoyed the bouncy castle.
We were greeted by a dull, drizzly and murky start to our morning, but thankfully the weather cheered itself up for us. Eighteen children and their parents joined Sarah Henn and the staff for a fun morning on the beach. Activities included rock pooling, Mark making on a large sand fish, paddling, limpet shaker making and a picnic.
Huge thanks to Sarah Henn for making this possible, a really fun morning was had by everyone.
Toady we left a large bunch of carrots and a special message outside for the Easter bunny....well he must have read it as when we went outside we discovered the carrots had been nibbled and there were lots of eggs all over the playground. We had great fun finding all the eggs. Thanks Easter bunny, please come again next year.
This week we celebrated the Chinese new year of the monkey. The children joined in lots of creative craft activities and worked to make a large dancing dragon. They also created paper plate monkeys. We looked at lots of pictures on the internet of how children celebrate Chinese new year in China, one of the ways is that children are given money in lucky red envelopes, our children received golden chocolate coins in theirs! The children also cooked some cakes with Mandy and decorated them Chinese style!!
Then as is our tradition at pre-school, the children tucked into noodles, sweet and sour sauce and prawn crackers.
We were very lucky this afternoon to be visited by father Christmas and his Elf in a helicopter. The children got to speak to them both before they took off again. Thank you to St Keverne school for inviting us to join this amazing experience.
On the 1st of December we arrived at school to find a little Elf wrapped up in fairy lights, sitting on the windowsill. This is Eric who has joined us up until Christmas time. Eric likes getting up to mischief and hiding each night ready for the children to find in the morning. Have a close look at the pictures and see if you can spot him hiding or the mischief he is making!!
