What we have been up to.

The teddy room this half term are learning about themselves and getting ready for school. This includes healthy eating, similarities and differences in people, and what it will be like starting school. We will be encouraging self-help skills and developing their confidence in their own abilities. The children have enjoyed using the new tyres outside to create different play experiences.

The monkey room are learning about places they like to visit. This can be anything from a visit to nanny and Grandad’s house to the farm, supermarket or Ice cream shop. The children will be using their imaginations and we may even have a day at the ‘Beach’. The children will be exploring and learning about lots of different things such as animal diets, travel to and from the places we like to go and different food types at the supermarket. As part of this topic, we have also requested that parents send us in some photos of where your children like to visit so we can share this with our friends, if you haven’t already, please email them in to us.

Chickenpox.

We have had a case of chickenpox in the monkey room. When children have a case, they are not allowed to return to pre-school until ALL spots/blisters have scabbed over. Please make sure all cases are reported to the pre-school.  

Starting school.

For those children starting school we will working hard with them this half term to learn self help skills. You can help support us by learning your child skills such as, putting on their own socks and shoes, wiping their bottom, eating with a fork and knife. If you do have any concerns on your child starting school, please do not hesitate to speak to us. The school are working on if there will be induction days and we will keep you informed on this.                            

Sun cream

Now the weather has finally started to improve we would like to remind you of sun cream policy.

  • All children should have sun cream applied BEFORE they attend the session
  • Only children that attend ALL day will have sun cream re applied at lunch time.
  • All hats need to be NAMED
  • No sandals that do not support the whole foot such as crocs or flip flops.
  • Please put children in clothes that cover the shoulders.
  • The weather can be unpredictable so please check and be prepared -such as a coat if it is due to rain or applying sun cream even if it is cloudy.

Donations

Last half term we only raised £30 in donations. We would like to remind you we are charity and with the continuing costs with the extra resources and cleaning needed due to covid we are needing more money to cover costs. Also due to covid and the staggered start and finish times we are at a significant loss with paying families.

Thank you to those families that continue to support to us. Please remember it does not always need to be money donations. Contributions of pasta, paper, rice, sand bubbles, flour and salt to make playdough are always helpful.

Old clothes.

Hopefully you all would have received a letter requesting you only put children in old clothes. Last week the children had great enjoyment from them playing and exploring our new tyres but unfortunately, we saw very dirty clothing.

We recommend dark leggings/ joggers and a dark top. We apricate from those parents who have said they don’t mind them getting messy in what they have on as they only cheap.

Dates for diary:

Due to staff having to prepare 22 school reports we will having a PD Day so staff can complete all this work before children leave. The pre-school will be closed on MONDAY 28TH June all day. We apologise for the inconvenience but I’m sure you will understand the importance of completing this information and reports ready for children returning in September to the pre-school room.
