‘Nurturing Individual Excellence’

Pre-school 2023 - 2024

Mrs Cheadle


Dear parents/carers,

Welcome to summer term!  Hopefully, you enjoyed the Easter break and managed to do some exciting things.  We are looking forward to welcoming back your little ones and settling in our new starters.  We also warmly welcome Miss Scott-Jones as a new member to our pre-school team. 


Let’s hope we get plenty of sunshine so we can venture outdoors as much as possible.  Remember to come and ask if you have any questions, we are happy to help!


Mrs Cheadle, Miss Dugmore, Miss Bebbington and Miss Scott-Jones

We will explore stories based on zoo animals and experiences at the zoo. 

These will include the following:

We will also explore some non-fiction books and eBooks to find out facts about zoo animals.  The children will learn about different animal groups and how they need to be cared for.  We will discuss why some wild animals would not make perfect pets.  We would also love to take the children to visit to a local, mini zoo (details of this to follow separately).

As we move into summer, the children will be encouraged to use all of their senses to notice seasonal changes, such as, full green leaves, changes in the weather and new seasonal flowers.  We will also discuss sun safety and how we can protect ourselves against the sun rays.

In Maths, we will continue to learn a selection of number rhymes and songs. We will explore stories suggested by our maths scheme ‘Master the Curriculum’.  These will include 'Over, Bear! Under, where!' and 'Bear is Square'.


Our mathematical journey will continue with a focus on positional language, fewer and more than, and 2D and 3D shapes.

Remember, for more detail about learning each week, see the pre-school weekly letter!
