Summer term at Ascott Preschool

 Lots of fun, whatever the weather!

We had a wonderful time at our Summer Fun Day and BBQ despite not-so-summery weather. The children enjoyed the bouncy castle, teddy tombola and craft activities, and took part in ‘sports day’ races. The event raised nearly £1,500, which we will invest in new equipment to enhance the children’s learning experience. Thank you to everybody who helped to make the day so special.

Learning about nature and looking after our planet

We joined the Wildlife Trust’s ‘Go Wild’ challenge in June – 30 days of nature-based activities. The children have loved getting outside and taking part in activities such as learning about bug boxes, feeling the sand on our feet and meditating outside. We’ve also focused on recycling this term. When clearing up after lunch, the children are learning what can be recycled. We hope they are helping out to recycle more at home too!

Stepping up to primary school

Our school leavers are excited to be starting school in September. Most of the children will be attending Wychwood Primary School, and we were pleased to welcome two of the Foundation Stage teachers from the school for a visit to Preschool in June.

Spaces available from September 2019

We will have space available for children aged two and above across our sessions from September. Preschool runs at Tiddy Hall during term time. Activities include child-led learning through play, craft, messy play, singing, Forest School, Cooking Club and dance sessions with the wonderful Dancing Sally.
