Our pyjama day for Children In Need last Friday was exciting!
The children made Pudsey biscuits and raised a brilliant amount of £45!
Plus they all looked super cute in their pyjamas…
The children had some spontaneous learning recently as a helicopter landed in the field next to Pre-school. We went to see it and were invited by the pilot to have photos taken and look around it. The children were very excited as were the staff. We played and talked about helicopters and other transport all session.
Last week the children learned about Remembrance Day and made poppy pictures to remember the people who keep us safe. We watched an early years video on remembrance and they have all understood in their own way why we wear poppies:
” to remember someone” says Hannah
” cos people died when they looked after us fighting, but we winned , I don’t know why they fight because they die” says Carys.
We had such a fun time on Halloween at Pre-school! We had a fancy dress day and the children did lots of fun activities like:
Carving and designing pumpkins.
Making pond water soup.
Rhyming and matching objects.
Bobbing for apples and using paper clips to measure and count the bats and skeletons!
The children all looked great and had brilliant fun!
These pictures are the adult examples of the Christmas cards that the children have made. The cards are being then sent to a company who will turn your child’s art work into Christmas cards.
The Christmas cards are part of our fundraising and the proceeds will go towards improving our Pre-school.
Pre-school will be having a fancy dress day on Tuesday 31 October – children can come in wearing a fancy dress outfit (doesn’t have to be Halloween related, can be any fancy dress!)
From today (Tuesday 17 Oct) Christmas card order forms will be coming home with your child.
The Christmas cards are a great way to help Pre-school raise much needed funds for equipment and improvements.
If you would like to see your child’s work before you order please see a member of staff.
All order forms need to be back by Monday 6th November.

We just wanted to let everyone know that Ysabel will soon be leaving the Pre-school to move on to pastures new. Ysabel’s last day at the Pre-school will be Wednesday 18th October.
Ysabel will be missed by all of the children and staff and we would like to wish her all the best in the future.
PreSchool Staff & Management Committee.
Just a reminder that it is our Annual General Meeting tomorrow at 7.30pm.
We need one family member for each child to attend if possible – the purpose of the AGM is to report to our members (families) on the previous year and to vote in the new Committee.
Without a Committee then Pre-school cannot open so the meeting is very important, please do try to attend if you can.
It won’t take up too much of your time. If parents need to bring their children to the AGM they are more than welcome. (Some Pre-school staff will be sitting at the back of the room with colouring books etc to entertain them).
Thank you in advance.
Next Thursday (21st September), the photographers will be in Pre-school to take photographs of your little one.
If your Pre-schooler isn’t normally in on a Thursday, you are more than welcome to bring them in to have their photograph taken.
If this is the case, please note the following times to take your child in:
Twinkles – please bring them into Pre-school for 11:30am
Stars – please bring them into Pre-school for 12:30pm.
If Thursday is a normal session day for your child, please bring your child in at their normal time.
If you have any problems or questions, please speak to Mel or Mary.
