Monthly Themes:

In Cregagh Pre-School, we follow a different theme each month. The theme for November is Myself/My Family. We will be talking about the different people in our families such as mum, dad, sister and brother. The children will also get a chance to draw their own self portrait and learn more about themselves: their likes, dislikes and appearance. To help your child in this area you can talk about various family members, using the correct vocabulary such as mum and dad, and discuss how some people in our family live with us whilst others don’t.
