Pre-Prep Adventures are nearing their close for this term!

Week update

With the sun shining this week it has been wonderful to see the children playing football and running around at playtime.

In the classrooms we have started ‘chitting’ potatoes to go in our vegetable garden, made birds’ nests out of toasted muffins, cheese and grapes as healthy snacks, completed the Reception Town display and painted egg cups, amongst many other activities.

Artwork for Pre-Prep

This term our Pre-Prep have been studying on the topic, ‘People who help us’. As part of their classes they have been creating some drawings and paintings to show people they have met and some who have visited us. In ‘Pre-Prep Adventures #15’ we featured a visit from a local fire officer. Do read more about it in that blog.

After the visit some of our pupils have been painting fire engines and the firemen who drive them.

We have also had a visit from our local Police. Do read more about this in our ‘Pre-Prep Adventures Blog #14’. Here is a beautiful drawing of a representation of a Police officer.
