What a lovely way to start the new school year - Pre-School received their certificate of accreditation from SASP for being a setting that promotes physical activity and healthy lifestyles.

Pre School Lamb Visit (May 2023) We have been learning 'all about spring' at Pre School this term. The children have been so lucky to have 2 lambs come to visit. They where able to feed the lambs and ask the farmer lots of questions about the animals.

Pre School uniform. Please see our lovely new uniform. Please do speak to a member of the Pre School team if you would like to order polo tops, jumpers and fleeces.

Parents Stay and Play sessions. We love inviting our families into school to come and have a play every term. This is a fantastic opportunity for our families to see what their little learners have been up to, as well as a perfect time for a chat with their child's key worker and other parents. We cannot wait to invite our families in again in the summer term.

Lots of excitement today as we had some new outdoor resources delivered. A huge thank you to the Nuttall Trust for giving us a grant to enable us buy these.

Our New Logo and Pre-School Name - Little Rainbows

We are so lucky to have a new Sensory Garden. We cannot wait to get planting flowers and vegetables alongside the school children to enhance our Spring Term learning.

Have you seen our new logo?

We have enjoyed our first ever careers week at Lympsham Pre-School. We have had a go at being chefs, scientists and firefighters. We have had some guests in to pre-school as well to talk about their jobs and we learnt about being a veterinary nurse, air steward, pilot and maths teacher..

We have started a new early years learning and development activity designed for getting children ready to start writing. It is called Wiggle me into Squiggle. It promotes sensory development and fine and gross motor skills

Remembrance at Lympsham Pre-School - this week we have been learning about Remembrance Day, we have been making poppies, playing counting games with poppies, trying on some real army kit and we enjoyed a walk to the war memorial in the village to look at the poppy display there.

Thank you to all our parents who came along to our first 'Stay and Play' of the school year. It was lovely to see you all in pre-school and we are really looking forward to being able to welcome you in again soon for some more play.

We are hoping to be able to make these a regular part of our pre-school calendar again, so if you weren't able to make it this time, don't worry there will be other opportunities to come along and join in.

We are strengthening our hands and fingers to get ready for writing, we are doing this by joining in with a 'Dough Disco' each day. We pinch, splat, roll, pass and make doughnuts with our dough to music. If you have some play dough at home why not ask your child to show you what they can do.

We are really enjoying our new indoor water table

Check out our new balance beams, we were a bit wobbly to start with but we can balance and walk on them really well now we've had a bit of practice

Thank you to the Nuttall Trust who gave us a grant to be able to buy this amazing light table. Light tables are great for sensory learning and it gives us another way of exploring and learning about the world.

We made blackberry and apple crumble with Chloe

For the Queen's jubilee we made crowns and joined the main school for a jubilee party with afternoon tea.

A UK-wide survey has been launched by Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Kent to help improve early childhood – and she wants your views.

The survey contains five short questions and  it “aims to spark a national conversation on the early years that will ultimately help bring about positive, lasting change for generations to come”.

It is designed to gather the thoughts of as many people as possible – recognising that everyone has a role in ensuring strong, healthy foundations for the youngest in our society that will positively affect their lifelong outcomes.
