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.
Good morning everyone,
With Christmas fast approaching, we have put together a few things for your little ones that
may help you with Christmas Eve boxes or Christmas Stockings. These items are available to purchase and all the proceeds will go to the preschool. As a community preschool we really do appreciate all your support with our fundraising events.
Look out for order forms coming home in book bags this week 👀
All our Halloween Sweet Cones have been made and are now ready for collection. (At your child’s next session)
Thank you to all parents that have purchased one or more of these sweet cones. All the proceeds of these cones go to the preschool, and we really do appreciate your support.
This week at preschool we found a very interesting six legged visitor in the form of a Stag Beetle.
We put plugged the magnifier into the big screen to show the children up close, and we also put it into the display box so the children could all get a good look before we released it back into the garden.
Well our caterpillars are now beautiful butterflies.
All our children have been watching the different stages of the caterpillars and we had some very smiley faces when they saw the butterflies.
We will now prepare to release them with the children.
Following our blog last week, we can confirm that the caterpillars are now fully in chrysalis transition stage and have been moved from the chrysalis station into the mesh habitat so that the children can all watch the miracle of metamorphosis up close.
They are all very excited and are looking forward to seeing them as butterflies 🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋
We will keep you updated
The children turned the mud kitchen into a Little Owls Ice-cream Parlour today, with their one of a kind Forest Shaving Foam Sundaes! 🍨🍨
A fantastic effort to keep the sunshine with us.
The children are all very excited at our annual arrival of caterpillars to preschool
They arrived safely last Wednesday and we have been watching them eat the food and grow.
Today we have all discovered that they are now hanging in their chrysalis from the lid, not long now before we see beautiful 🦋🦋🦋, which we will share with you all before we set them free.
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
