Our topic this term is all about ‘Fun and Fantasy’ and the Children have had fun in turning our role play area into Jack’s house from Jack and the Beanstalk. To extend this we have a farm shop, where the children can buy and sell vegetables and have ago at planting their own beans. They have been acting out the story in the book corner with puppets and looking for the giant’s treasure in the garden. We will be looking at other Fairy Tales over the next few weeks.
Shoe Box Appeal
Thank you to all that to the shoe box appeal. I’m sure the gifts will be much appreciated.
Please, please could you name your children’s clothing, their coats, jumpers and wellington boots.
Healthy Early Years (HEY)
We will be supporting road safety week from 19th – 25th November. During this week we will have a Beep Beep day which is sponsored by Churchill and run on Wednesday 21st November nationally. It is a great way to engage children with road safety basics and help save lives, with fun activities and resources. The children can come in fancy dress on Beep Beep day.
30 Hour Funding
Could you please speak to a member of staff if you have not applied for the 30 hours funding and your child will be eligible in January. Funding codes need to be in before the end of December ready for January. If they are not received before this date, we will not be able to ensure the funding for after Christmas.
The Christmas play is on Tuesday 18th December 11am start. Tickets will be on sale w/c 3rd December at a cost of £1.50 to include a drink and a mince pie. We will have a small range of gifts to buy and a raffle after the performance. Raffle tickets will be on sale w/c 10.12.18.
This year’s Christmas party will take place on Monday (morning) 17th December for all children, even if this is not your normal session. We are very lucky to have an entertainer Katy Way from Music Makers to entertain the children, after which the children will have party food and a visit from Father Christmas. There will be a list for party food on the notice board w/c 3.12.18. Could we please remind you that we are a no nuts pre-school and ask that if you provide grapes they are cut vertically to avoid choking. Please speak to a member of staff if you are able to help.
As our pre-school is run on church grounds could I please ask that children do not run on the areas either side of the path. This is for the safety of the children as the walls are quite high and to respect members of the public who lay flowers.
