Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOL REPORT -

thank the chil­dren for their do­na­tions and ex­plained to them how their do­na­tions will help fam­i­lies in the lo­cal area. CHIL­DREN sang their hearts out at an event that pro­moted healthy eat­ing.

St Mary’s Preschool in Church Street, Che­sham, had its Soup and Song Con­cert on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 23.

The event en­cour­aged health eat­ing and group par­tic­i­pa­tion, with a pre­sen­ta­tion of songs by the chil­dren in front of par­ents.

After the con­cert peo­ple en­joyed soup which the chil­dren helped make in the morn­ing us­ing vegetables that they brought in.

Chair­per­son of the com­mit­tee that runs the preschool and par­ent to twins at the school Kate Miller said: ‘Soup and Song is a great ex­am­ple of how St Mary’s puts our chil­dren at the heart of ev­ery­thing we do. Our chil­dren se­lected the songs they wanted to sing, brought in their own vegetables and pre­pared them them­selves. And the re­sults were de­li­cious.”

Man­ager of the preschool Jacky Mur­rell said: “We’re en­cour­ag­ing the chil­dren to be­come ac­tive learn­ers through tak­ing part in the con­cert, re­spond­ing to sim­ple in­struc­tions. Dur­ing the singing they’re con­trol­ling their move­ments and of course re­call­ing the words and count­ing up to five. Tak­ing part in the con­cert, and the re­hearsals, is de­vel­op­ing their con­fi­dence and self es­teem.”
