*Birchwood Carnival Sunday 2nd June 12-5pm*
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
We really appreciate all of your support and look forward to seeing you there.

Today at Pre-school we had “Blue Elephant Day” – the children wore blue and made donations to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital – the event was also to raise awareness of sepsis and the warning signs to look out for.
We managed to raise £20 in total! The children all looked super cool in their blue clothes Check out our selfies below….
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 Stars have also learned about growing and painted the famous sunflower pictures by Vincent van Gogh and learning all about this famous artist

Hope everyone is having a lovely break and we look forward to seeing all the children again then!
We are having an Easter fundraiser event in the Pre-school. The cost is £1.00 for entry.
Twinkles are asked to decorate an Easter Bonnet at home and bring it in to Pre-school to show their creation.
Stars are asked to decorate a hard-boiled egg at home and bring it in to be judged.
We hope that everybody had a lovely Christmas!
We had a great end of term at Pre-school – it ended with a fantastic Christmas performance from our Stars and then a lovely party on the last morning of term with a visit from the big guy himself….
Pre-school opens again on Thursday 4 January 2018 – we can’t wait to see everyone!

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.
