A sad farewell...

Posted by admin on July 17, 2017

It’s our last week at Pre-School before the summer holiday.  We will be getting the tissues out as we say a sad farewell to our little ones who are moving onto the next stage of their educational career.  We are so proud of the achievements our children have made during their short time with us.  They have developed so many skills, sharing, building relationships, talking confidently, mark making, having fun… so in the words of Nanny McPhee, our job is done! 


Getting ready for school

Posted by admin on July 10, 2017

It’s only two weeks now until we break up for the summer holidays.  It will be a sad time for us as we will be saying cheerio to our children who are moving onto ‘big’ school.  We have been busy meeting their new teachers and writing reports, but we hope their last days with us will be filled with fun.  Next week we are having our teddy bears picnic, watch out for our newsletter giving you the information that you need.

It’s the start of our dinosaur topic – which we know will be very popular, especially with two of our boys who are absolutely mad about dinosaurs!  Does anyone have any fossils or anything else pre-historic related?  If so we would love to show the children – please speak with a member of our team.


Ooooo Rrrrrr!!!

A big thank you to everyone who came to our Summer Fayre on Saturday and thankfully the weather was kind to us.  It was great to see so many families, new and old.  We rely on your support for our fund raising events and we are pleased to say we raised almost £600, which is fantastic.  We hope you and your family enjoyed meeting everyone and we know a lot of you went home with a bag full of prizes!  Thank you to those who donated prizes for our stalls and Grand Raffle and also to everyone who baked.  


Summer has arrived!

Thank goodness the weather has changed – it makes everyone feel so happy doesn’t it?  But now the sun is out don’t forget to make sure your child has sun cream on before they come to Pre-School.  If they are staying all day we will ‘top up’ at lunch time for the afternoon.  Remember your sun hat too!


People who help us

Posted by admin on June 12, 2017

For the next two weeks our topic is ‘People who help us’ the home corner has been changed from the travel agents to the ‘Greenacre Hospital’.  We have a few people visiting us to talk about their jobs.  We still have a few spaces so if you work in an industry that helps people and have half an hour to spare would you like to come in and talk to our children?  Just speak with a member of staff and let them know.


Where has the sun gone?

Welcome back to Pre-School everyone.  We hope you have had a great week off, and made the most of the sunshine - we can’t wait to hear what you and your family having been doing.  Did you go away?  Do you have any photographs you would like to show at news time?


Butterflies have flown!

Posted by admin on May 22, 2017

Last week we released our butterflies into the big wide world.  They were a bit hesitant at first but they eventually flew off into the sun.  The children loved watching them fly away and some were even lucky enough for the butterflies to land on them!


Healthy eating

Thank you to everyone who came into Pre-School wearing the colour of the day.  It was good to talk about the different colours and shades.  This week is healthy eating week, so we will be talking about foods which are healthy and those which we shouldn’t eat too much of.  Also this week we will be growing cress and each child will have their own little pot – please help them to look after it when they bring it home.


Check out your colour

Posted by admin on May 8, 2017

This week is our colour week.  Each day we will be focusing on a different colour.  Why not dress your child in the colour of the day?  Monday is red, Tuesday is yellow, Wednesday is green, Thursday is blue and Friday is orange.
