31st january 2014 068Happy Chinese New Year! Hope you like the dragon mask!

The children have enjoyed making dragons and lanterns, eating noodles and rice, and looking at pictures of Chinese New Year celebrations from around the world today.

Next week we are moving on from pets and exotic animals to look at winter; including hibernating animals and weather, as during discussions about exotic animals this week hibernation has been mentioned a few times. So we hope the snow dances the children have been doing bring the snow so we can go sledging and building snowmen!

Letter sound is changing to j, for jam, jelly and jungle. If the children would like to bring something in beginning with j to feed the letter monster, he would very much appreciate it, he’s starving!!

Please remember wellies, coats and hats as we will be ensuring we experience winter weather first hand everyday next week.

Please not fees are due Monday 3rd February, if you are experiencing difficulties paying your bill please speak to a member of staff.

We have a new page on our website dedicated to press and web releases, please take a look and share! Thank you!

  • Well we’ve had our first week back, it was really nice to see all the children after the holidays and we were all ready to get playing again.  As you know Dani has not been with us, she is having lots of rest at home and is getting better. The children have made her a get well soon card and some flowers as we all miss her.
  • Funding  forms: If your child is entitled to government funding you should have received a funding form. Please can these be filled in and returned to Pre-school by Monday 20th January. If you have any questions please see a member of staff.
  • Area of  interest: Pets! Please can we have photos of your pets, stories about pets or any items  you use for your pets (leads, balls ) as the children have been showing lots of interest in each other’s pets and we’ve had lots of children running around as dogs and cats at Pre-school last week!
  • Letter sound: e for egg
