Through our topic ‘The Night Pirates,’ pre-school children have been learning about shadows.
Things we have noticed -
Shadows are made when an object blocks light.
Shadows show an object’s shape.
Shadows are dark.
Sometimes we can see two shadows at the one time - a lighter shadow and a darker shadow.
We can make shadows move.
We need light to make shadows.
Making shadow puppets with our friends is so much fun! ... See MoreSee Less

Our pre-schoolers have been very busy learning about autumn. 🍂
Through everyday observation and looking at leaves, pine cones, conkers etc, children have been comparing different leaves / resources whilst looking at their shape, size and colour, in addition to to the patterns they leave when creating leaf rubbings.
We had so much fun throwing helicopter leaves up in the air and watching them spin very fast to the ground.
The cork painting activity was very popular amongst the children as they explored painting with a different tool.
The children helped to make dough, where they created faces using natural materials or explored the patterns and imprints that could be made using natural resources. They were also learning how to hold scissors, practicing snipping and learning our safety rules when using the dough scissors.
The children have also been discussing size and length through all activities. They particularly enjoyed measuring the spaghetti worms in the water tray! ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you to Mrs Halliday, from Cairncastle PS, for allowing us to visit the library van on Monday.
Some of our pre-schoolers had a great time browsing through the books and there was lots of excitement when they were allowed to borrow one as well.
There are many benefits of reading to children - developing concentration, listening skills, imagination, vocabulary and learning to name a few.
This month we have been discussing how to sit at story time, how to open a book and turn each page, how to take care of our books by being careful not to tear pages and finding a space for them on the book rack when we are finished.
Don’t forget that children can borrow books from Rainbow at any time. Our lending library is situated in the children’s cloak room.
Happy reading! 📖 📚 ... See MoreSee Less

Looks like great fun everyone!! 🤗🌈
I can't wait to see how Rowan excels over next few weeks hes absolutely loving his time during his settling in period at Rainbow ... Every morning he wakes up and says he wants to go play with kids friends and ladies 😍😐
Practicing hitting a shuttlecock and playing badminton was so much fun for some of our after-schoolers.
They were a little unsure at first, but lots of practice helped their confidence.
We’ll be pros by the end of summer! 🏸 🙌🏼 ... See MoreSee Less

This makes me so sad. We aren’t ready for the rainbow year to be finished! Thank you to everyone that worked with Deacon this year. You all made a massive impact on him and it’s amazing to see how much he has grown! He will miss you all very much xxx
Amelia sobbed all the way home today, because she is going to miss all her friends 😭💔
Thank you Sean, one of our parents, who took the time to bring an ambulance to visit Rainbow. We all had great fun making siren noises and looking at and trying some of the equipment that paramedics use to help make people better. 🚑 🏥 👩⚕️ 👨⚕️ ... See MoreSee Less
