Autumn 2012 News

 

Where did that last term go? The children loved our leaver's trip at the Adventure Farm. GOOD LUCK to all starting big school in September!

The older children have had lots of visits to big school, practiced school lunches, met their new teachers and are so excited about the next step. We finished the year with 77 children on our books the highest ever, 49 leave us for big school and we will welcome another 20 families in September.

Every year we seem to pack more in, this term has been specially busy with the Jubilee Celebrations, meeting "The Queen" was a real treat!

The children enjoyed hunting for bugs and we had such fun when the Animal Man came to visit, holding snakes and tarantulas. We had big adventures going over to the woods.

The Sponsored Mini Olympics was one of those rare hot days that seem a distant memory, it was so well supported and we raised nearly £400 towards resources for next year. Thank you.

The year has held such good memories. As a team we have watched the children grow in confidence, they have become so independent and outgoing which has been wonderful to see.

All our family events have been well supported. A big thank you to the staff, committee and parents that have helped run events throughout the year. Our Family Fun Day helped to raise an incredible amount towards resources and everyone had a wonderful time.

Spring 2012 News

 

We had lots of fun at Pre-School in the run up to Christmas. It was wonderful to see so many of you at our annual Nativity at St. Mary’s. Thank you to all involved for your support and thank you to all parents and carers for helping the children to learn songs. The children had great fun dressing up - The Rudolph and Snowman costumes are very well loved!

We looked at different celebrations with the children, talked about our birthdays and how we celebrate Christmas at home. We discussed life in Japan, based our advent tree on this amazing country and learnt about Origami. A visit to the church to see the advent trees was a big success and the children had such fun with glitter and glue throughout this project!

We enter into the New Year with 13 new children joining us and all have settled in well.

We are looking at "People who help us", starting with a Post Office role play and are hoping to have lots of visits from parents to tell us all about their jobs in the coming weeks. A visit to the real Post Office is also planned and hopefully a fire engine will come to see us too.
