Cake and Plant Sale: Despite a VERY WET day, we made over £350, we will use this to improve our story book storage. Thank you so much to all who donated plants and delicious cakes. As always you have been truly generous.

Sports Day 

 Thursday 8th July 2019 (if the weather is wet: Friday 9th July)    Time: 9.15 – 10.30

Please join us on sports day for some fun and games.

For Children’s safety: Children who do not attend the Pre-school session on a Thursday are very welcome to join us, but they need to have a parent/carer stay with them as we need to maintain adult/child ratios for the safety of the children.  Photographs – You are welcome to take pictures of your child, please do not post any pictures on any social media. Thank you.

Outside area: As you are aware we raised an amazing amount of money on our welly walk in March. Hopefully you will have noticed that we have a new climbing frame and picnic bench, we also purchased some new large construction and builder’s bricks. We still have some money to spend and will keep you updated on our purchases.

Outdoor Play - We will be outside as often as possible this term. While Crocs and sandals are perfect for home, we find that they aren’t suitable for climbing, balancing etc. Please apply sun block before the preschool session/day – however on full days, we are happy to re-apply at lunch time, please label your child’s sun block and pop it in their bags. Sunhats please. Thank you

Face Masks: Please remember that face masks should still be worn when dropping off and collecting children. This is part of our risk assessment and one way in which we are trying to ensure the safety of all our families and staff. It would be appreciated if you remind    relatives of this guidance as well.  Thank you.

Leavers Picnic – Fingers crossed we are hoping to hold our leavers picnic on Wednesday 21st July at 1.00 pm. We are hoping that the children who are leaving to go to school and their families will be able to join us. Details to follow. For those children who are not leaving and would usually stay all day, we are asking that they could be collected at 12pm on that Wednesday.

Help – we have seen an increase in toys being brought from home, not comforters; and it is so difficult keeping track of them all and they often get packed away with other toys involving a toy hunt!!. Could you please help by keeping these to comforters or popping toys in their green bag or back pack until home time. Thank you, we know it is difficult.

Amazon Smile – thank you to all who have supported Amazon Smile through purchases but also a massive thank you to all of you who have sent us a gift through our wish list, we have added to our role play, received some lovely books, games and new resources. It is much appreciated and the children have enjoyed the new resources.
