All School Children return back to school on the 25th of May 2020. Well done to all the families who have been able to home school. I'm sure all the children and families are excited to be returning back to some kind of normal. If you need the school bus please call or email me. At this stage, we will only be doing one bus run to and from school.

News from Pips:
The Pips have been enjoying exploring the big yard! they are so clever as they investigate nature and natural objects. The children have been engaging in sensory play experiences and extending on their vocabulary and language development as they communicate with each other and educators.
The children have been responding well to music by dancing and making music with musical instruments. The children have enjoyed listening to interactive stories for storytimes.
Until next time,

News from Buds:
Firstly we would like to welcome the children who have returned back. The children have settled quickly into their new environment exploring all the different play areas in the room.
We have been singing lots of songs and nursery rhymes using puppets. We have noticed that the children are remembering the actions to the songs and requesting songs they like to hear us sing, they show us by using the actions to prompt us to sing. The children's language skills are developing rapidly with many children able to use sentences, identifying colours and able to count from 1-10.
Outside the children have been exploring the gardens for wildlife, actively looking for frogs and insects. They are also developing confidence in their physical abilities, easily maneuvering the bikes and using spatial awareness.
We look forward to assisting the children on their way to becoming independent little people.
Until next time
Maria & Emma
News from the Poppies:
This month a big focus for the Poppies room has been writing and letter recognition. The children are all showing a lot of progress in their abilities to write their names. As the middle of the year is fast approaching we will be continuing to help the children be prep ready. The children have shown a big interest in bugs, creatures and insects. We will continue to incorporate their interest as well as a prep ready program daily. The children have been working towards having healthy relationships with peers and educators for example having the ability to communicate when something is upsetting them. We are still after old x-rays if any families have them spare to bring in and a family photo for our Piptree family tree.
Until next month,
Miss Ebony & Miss Brenda
