Rabbits and Foxes News September 2018

A big welcome goes to Aiden, Krishna, Emily, Max and Julek who joined us in the Rabbits group this month!

This month has been very busy with the Rabbits and Foxes learning together about “People Who Help Us!”  We have been doing all sorts of really great activities that have furthered our knowledge on the people we can go to in the community to help us in specific situations. Some of the experiences provided included a shop set up in the garden where the children learned about paying for objects as well as learning about the different types of coins; story books based on the topic and discussing the characters roles in more depth; watching videos and role playing emergency situations, as well as practicing how to dial 999!

The Foxes have also been learning a lot about people who help them and seemed to enjoy joining in with a lot of the Rabbits experiences! We did however provide some specific experiences for them that included some new puzzles and Velcro scene that allowed the children to practice their matching and problem solving skills as well as furthering their knowledge of people who help them.

We have now finished up our block of Forest Schools – unfortunately due to weather and other unfortunate circumstances we only managed one trip to Blackford Pond, however the boys and girls still had a lot of fun out at Sciennes Woodlands using natural materials to weave and create some magnificent pieces of artwork for the nursery.

We have now concluded our visits with the Care Home for the year. We are hopeful that we will be able to start these back up next year as we found it a really valuable experience for the children to be able to learn from the residents.

Next block we are looking forward to finding out what the children would like to learn about “Transport” and “Autumn”. The children are so interested in cars, buses, planes etc and they love all the leaves that are now falling off of the trees.

The children also have their Halloween party coming up, and we look forward to seeing everyone, staff included, in their fancy dress costumes and having a party!
