*Birchwood Carnival Sunday 2nd June 12-5pm*

Dear parents,

Roll up, Roll up… This year, the Birchwood Carnival theme is: CIRCUS 🎪🤹‍♀️

We plan to take part in the opening parade again this year and we are running a stall.

We would love for as many of our Stars and Twinkles to take part in the parade as possible (children need to be accompanied by an adult and siblings are welcome to walk too). Prizes are given for costumes so we are hoping all of your children will look like the cast from greatest showman!  Let’s see your little lion tamers and weight-lifters, I’m sure there’s plenty of clowns and acrobats amongst our stars and twinkles classes. So get looking around, mums and dads, for fancy dress bits. Nothing expensive, just stuff you have in. (Multi-coloured leggings, crazy wigs, leotards..)

We will be bringing dress-up clothes from Pre-school so if  you want to come a bit earlier to  our stall you can borrow items and we can do some face painting on your child too (if anyone has face painting skills and want to join us in this venture, that would be great!)

We will be running a stall with ‘Circus Skills and a digging for treasure game’, to raise funds for activities and events for the children at Pre-school. It would be lovely for our children to visit us!

All children who wish to take part in the parade are asked to meet at the games area in the centre of the park at 12.15pm for the start of the parade at 12.30pm. The parade is expected to be finished at 1pm.

We are also looking for volunteers to give an hour or two to help on our circus stall. All money raised goes to the pre-school to support our children, so please consider lending a hand and let us know on Facebook.

We have set up a Facebook event for this so please check for updates on The Village Preschool Staff/Parent Communications. Any questions or offers of help, please feel free to email Hannah Thomas at chairperson@thevillagepreschool.org.uk.

We really appreciate all of your support and look forward to seeing you there.

Sunflowers!

Last week the Twinkles were planting sunflower seeds and talking about growing…Hopefully, when they plant them in the garden they will send in some pictures to in to us to show how well they are growing and how tall they are

The children made Pudsey biscuits and raised a brilliant amount of £45!

Helicopter!

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.
