Pre-School News

We are moving on with our ” Are we nearly there yet?” topic, travelling on now to Africa. The children have enjoyed the story of Handa’s Surprise. We have talked about the differences between our lives here in Harbertonford and Handa’s. The children noticed how Handa carried her fruit to her friend. We tried balancing a basket on our heads to move our shopping around. It was very tricky. It was very exciting feeling, smelling and tasting some new fruits. We tried, mango, passion fruit, pomegranate, avocado, and pineapple
The pre-school children had a very busy week last week. They were thinking about the earth and have been using Google Earth to see where about in the world Harbertonford primary school is. The children were really excited about being able to zoom in from space and that we could see our outdoor classroom and our pirate ship.
We have been enjoying the celebration of Chinese New Year. The children have listened to traditional Chinese music and took part in some wonderful ribbon dancing. There was lots of giggling and laughter trying to use the chopsticks.
We have been continue to focus on textures and encouraging children to explore new things. This week we explored the texture of gelli baff. The children pulled some wonderfully expresionate faces as they used brilliant descriptive language such as” slimey, frog slime, gunky, slippy” to describe what the children were touching.
