Pre-Prep Adventures #10 – Thursday 21st January 2016 – Ballard School

January 22, 2016

A visit to see ‘The Snowman’

Pre-Prep have had an incredibly exciting week. Reception to Yr 2 joined Lower Prep on a school trip to the Mayflower Theatre to see ‘The Snowman’. The children were enthralled by the dancing snowmen, ballerinas and animals and were quite literally sitting on the edges of their seats. The flying snowman and boy started lots of conversations about how they were actually flying – until someone spotted ‘the string’!

People who help us

Kindergarten to Yr 2 were lucky enough to have a real nurse visit them this week as part of their ‘People Who Help Us’ topic. Mrs Besley, a parent who is a relief Matron at school, talked to the children about the role of a nurse.  She helped them put on bandages and listen to hearts with a stethoscope and, most importantly of all, reminded the children of the number to ring in an emergency. She also encouraged all the children to learn their addresses to help the 999 operators!
