February

     

Hello everyone,

 

It’s February already and as usual it’s a busy month in pre-school.  Our new themes are –

          Colour -       Pink

          Shape -        Heart

          Theme -       Dinosaurs

 

We had great fun on our Pyjama day.  Everyone was so relaxed coming to school in their pj’s and they thoroughly enjoyed their big breakfast.  These children can really eat!!  We should do it more often!!

 

FUNDRAISING BAND MARCH

 

We are hoping to provide a sensory space in one of our outdoor cabins. We have purchased some items towards this but everything is now so expensive that we can’t get everything we need.  So we are hoping you can help out with our Fundraising Band March on Friday 11th February.  This involves the children making their own instruments and marching around the assembly hall 10 times.  Good fun!  It’s not so much fun brushing up all the peas, pasta & lentils that fall out of the instruments!!   In normal times parents can usually come to watch but we will have to video it this time.  The children are receiving a sponsor form to torture friends and family with!!  Thank you in advance for your support with our fundraising efforts. 

                              

CHINESE NEW YEAR

 

We will be talking about the Chinese New Year at the start of the month.  We may even have some Chinese food and make attempts at using chopsticks.

 

HELPERS

 

As I’m sure you are aware schools are in a very difficult situation because of staff shortages and illness due to covid.  We are exactly the same and to be honest, if another member of staff is ill we do not have anyone to cover and a class may have to temporarily close.  If anyone feels they would be able to help out (at short notice) and is willing to have an enhanced vetting check carried out, please speak to me.  If you enjoy, noise, mayhem, tears (only sometimes), fun & laughter, it could be the place for you!!

 

 

HALF –TERM CLOSURE

 

We will close on Friday 11th February at 11.15a.m.

We return on Monday 21st February at 9.15a.m.

 

 

Finally, always feel free to speak to us at any time if you have concerns about your child in pre-school.
