Armistice Day - Visit to the War Memorial

 This morning, the children at Busy Bees paid their respects during the two minutes silence to mark Armistice Day.  Some of the children walked into Ledbury to watch the service at the War Memorial. 

 

The children listened beautifully to the readings and watched as the flags were raised.  

Diary Dates - 2015

Please find below a list of key dates for this term:

 

Forest School Exploration

 This week, we are thinking about our senses at Preschool.  For circle time, we read our book of the week, 'What the Ladybird Heard.'  After using the puppets to tell the story, we closed our eyes and listened carefully to see what we could hear in the classroom.  As the door was open to outside, we could hear the birds singing and Bev setting up the area for us to play in.

 

We decided to investigate further so we all got our wellies on ready to explore the Forest School area.  There were lots of things for us to see, hear, smell and feel so we were very busy bees.  

Autumn Term 2015 - Settling In

 We've had a fantastic start to the Autumn term and have enjoyed welcoming back children who with with us before Summer as well as some new starters.  

 

Over the first couple of weeks, we have been establishing the children's interests so we can plan a stimulating and motivating environment where they can thrive.  So far, we have particularly enjoyed:

* baking cakes

* exploring our new water wall

* large scale mark making

* using the playdough to make cakes

* using the iPads to take photos and play games

* thinking about what makes us special

 

Below you will find a selection of photos from our first two weeks of the Autumn term.  We still have some spaces available for children to start immediately - please email or telephone if you would like more information.

 

New Uniform!

We have some exciting news to share with you. The Busy Bees ladies will be coming back in September with a whole new look. Rather than greeting you on the first day of term in our navy uniform, we'll be wearing a lovely shade of purple instead.

Parents can now order uniform using our online shop set up by our new provider, Simon from 'Your Name On It'. We hope you'll find this a much easier way to purchase t-shirts, polo shirts, hoodies or even a PE bag. Children are still welcome to carry on wearing navy.

We are now taking bookings and will be open from 7:45am - 6pm as usual during the Summer and every school holiday thereafter.

Two Year Funding

Parents could be entitled to claim fifteen hours of free childcare per week should they meet certain criteria. There is now the facility to check eligibility for funding online through the Herefordshire Council website:

 

www.herefordshire.gov.uk/NEF

 

The site also contains an application form for the funding which is returned to Herefordshire Council.

 

Investigating Floating & Sinking

 Yesterday at circle time, we investigated floating and sinking with Jodie.  From a tray of items, the children were encouraged to think whether the objects would float on the water or sink to the bottom.  We raised our hands when instructed to indicate what we thought would happen, float or sink.  The children used some wonderful vocabulary and mathematical words as well as demonstrating their ability to think through a problem.

They considered each item, with some children giving reasons for their floating or sinking judgement.

"the stone is heavy so that will go to the bottom" - Rosie, aged 4

"the grapes will sink.  They're small"  - Jessica, aged 4

 

Sports Day 2015

On a beautifully warm Thursday afternoon, we held our annual Sports Day for children in our Butterfly and Caterpillar PE groups.  

 

The event was fantastically supported by Mums, Dads, Grandparents, Aunties and Siblings who cheered enthusiastically as the children participated in an afternoon of races.  Jodie, our Sports Day organisor, arranged races including the following:

* Running

* Beanbag

* Water

* Jelly

* Egg and Spoon

and.......'Grown Ups' races!!

 

After the races, families joined us in the front garden for refresehments including drinks, cakes, biscuits and strawberries and cream.  Thanks go to Haygrove Fruit who kindly supply us with strawberries every year for this event.  Thanks to the generosity of our families, we raised over £55.

 

Here are some photos of our afternoon.
