Hello and Welcome to Little Ospreys Preschool where we offer a vibrant environment that aims to help children discover a sense of independence and a love for learning. We offer weekly PE sessions with the Lottery funded Finding Fitness team and we have weekly swimming session in our own pool run by a qualified swimming teacher and trained pool side rescuer. We are very lucky to have our own Forest School area in our surrounding woodland within the school grounds and visit this weekly with a love to explore the world around us.
There are three members of the Little Ospreys team Mrs Jones, Mrs Gay and Mrs Davison who are highly experienced and skilled Early Years staff.
Week 2, we have had another busy week learning all about our bones, where we have made skeleton pictures and learnt the skeleton dance song. The children also had their first visit to the pool and had fun splashing Mrs Jones. During circle time, the children have been practising their listening skills and talking about what makes them happy and sad.
Our theme this term is 'All about me' and 'Once Upon a Time' where we have planned lots of exciting activities and hope to get to know all our families by using photographs, family trees, self portraits, and talking about friendships and feelings. The stories we will be looking at are The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Little Red Hen. We will be incorporating Harvest Festival into that and hope to make delicious bread with the children.
Our first week back has been full of excitement and fun with all the children happy to be back with their friends. We have been making self portraits, enjoying our new den building area in the garden and the sand pit has been popular this week. The children seemed full of energy after their first PE session with Liam from Finding Fitness.
