Pre-Prep Adventures #11 – Thursday 28th January 2016 – Ballard School

January 28, 2016

Pre-Prep Adventures continues…

From the ‘hospital’

Following on from our visit from a nurse last week there have been many operations performed and bandages applied in the Pre-Prep pretend hospitals. Thankfully with our budding nurses and doctors all the patients are recovering well!

The Sword in the Stone

Today Reception to Yr 2 joined with Lower Prep to watch a very interactive version of The Sword in the Stone performed by a touring Theatre Group. Some of the children dressed up and got to be characters in the play but we all had to sing songs and join in with the actions. Did Arthur manage to pull the sword from the stone? Was he crowned King? Ask your children all about it!

This week we also had our Ballard Butterflies event and the children and adults who attended had a super time. The first part of the afternoon was spent, by some, making tea in the ‘kitchen’ and deciding the best place for the dolls to sit (sofa or armchair?).

Our craft tables were full of activities for our budding artists. Some chose to make shape pictures with paint and stencils, others opted for mirror-image butterflies. Brown was the favourite colour for most of those Butterlies!

The session continued with songs and rhyme time on cushions with Mrs Chapman. As the rain came down, ‘Incy Wincy spider’ came out!

It’s been very wet and not so frosty but it doesn’t stop our Pre-Prep scientists finding out all about ice…brrrrr!
