We all have Madame Nathalie visit us once a week to teach us French in our Pre-School room. Our children learn the French language through singing, worksheets, action songs and discussion times. They become confident with colours, shapes, numbers and French songs. At our Christmas carol concert, the children perform a song in French for their families to see. When the children leave Pre-School to go on to school they receive a certificate for their achievements in French.
At Bulwell, Ilkeston & Broomhill Vicky from Wiggly Tots teaches our children dance once a week. The children enjoy exploring new dance moves whilst listening to music. They learn about warm up exercises and cooling down after dancing. The children also learn about the health benefits that physical exercise has on their bodies and hold discussions about how the sessions make them feel.
Our children at Kingsway are visited once a week by Fiona from Yoga Bugz. Fiona uses role play to teach the children yoga moves and links in warm up and cool down periods within each session. The children learn about the health benefits that physical exercise has on their bodies and often healthy eating is linked into the role play scenarios.
