Welcome to our Blog Space “Little Hoot. We hope that by visiting us regularly you will get a sense of what we are all about at Little Owls Community Preschool.
Today the children were looking at a factual book all about dinosaurs.
They then asked for the chalk and a tape measure to draw a dinosaur as big as 7 metres tall, and then wanted an adult to chalk around them while they lay on the floor next to the dinosaur chalk print to see how “big” it would be next to their own chalk prints.
Happy Summer Half Term break everyone.
We look forward to seeing you and hearing about all your adventures when we return to preschool on Monday 7th June.
Look out for the fun activities we have planned for the last half of the Summer Term 👀
Stay happy and safe,
From all the Little Owls Community Preschool Team

Finding fun ways to introduce your little ones to a wider variety of fruits and new tastes can be a real challenge.
With hopefully warmer weather on the way fruit kebabs are one great way to introduce new fruits – putting familiar tastes next to a new fruit!
Fruit skewers are the perfect summer/autumn refreshment for the whole family. Easy and simple recipe! Great for your kids. Use a variety of fruits and don’t forget to wash them. Fruit kebabs are very nutritious for your children. In our video we have used apples, grapes, kiwi and bananas. Feel free to use strawberries, mango, pineapple …
Not a Stick is a story all about using one’s imagination. Written and illustrated by Antoinette Portis. What can your stick become? This read aloud was created for educational purposes only.

Your little one might like to place their stick on to paper, fix it with tape and then draw around the stick turning it into something else. Or why not try decorating their stick? They could paint it, stick stuff onto it, wrap bits and bobs around it, or wind wool, ribbons, strips of paper or fabric around and around it!
