YN Big Ben Class
Welcome to our Pre-school Class!
We look forward to a fun filled first term getting to know all of our new children and families as well as catching up on all the summer fun had by our returning children.
Our first term back will see us cover “All about me!” topic. This is a great child-centred topic engaging in activities specifically planned around the interests and lives of our children, giving the pre-school team a real insight into how our children think about their world and the world around them.
The theme helps children to realise that every person is unique and special. They also learn that every child's thoughts and ideas are important and no one person is more or less important than another
