Merry Christmas

Posted by admin on December 11, 2017

It’s our last week of the Autumn Term and we are starting off with our Christmas Party.  The children will be dancing, playing games, eating party food – and we have a special visitor dropping by.  We have lots of activities going on and glitter galore! (If you can’t have glitter at Christmas when can you have it!!??)


How well did they do?

Posted by admin on December 4, 2017

Thank you to everyone who came to join us on Monday to watch our Christmas Sing-a-long.  We were so proud of our children – weren’t they fantastic?  We raised £150 towards our resources for your children, thank you to everyone who donated prizes and bought raffle tickets.  Now we have finished the concert and the props have been put away we are preparing for our Christmas party next Monday afternoon.  If your child does not attend the afternoon session please bring them at 1.00pm to join in the fun. 


Christmas countdown

Posted by admin on November 27, 2017

We have only 3 weeks until we break up for the holidays, but we have lots of things planned and will be really busy keeping all of our excited children occupied.  This week we are making Christingles and learning about the true meaning of Christmas.  Your child will also be bringing home a collection candle from The Children Society.  This charity was set up in the 60’s to help vulnerable children and is still very active today.  For those of you who have children at Littlemoor and need a candle for their Christingle we have some available to purchase for a small donation.

At home with your child

If you have been doing something interesting at home or visited somewhere at the weekend we would love to hear about it.  You could jot a few words down that your child said, what you did and where you went, attach a photograph or an item you have collected e.g. an admission ticket, a flower.  It doesn't have to be a lot.   This week or weekend at home.pdf Copies also available in Pre-School.

Children say...

We are very privileged to work with your fantastic children and we would like to share with you the things they tell us....

As we were talking about our families one little boy said that in his family he had, "mummy, daddy, me and kitchens..."

Coming in from outside a little boy said, "Two of my ears are hurting"

"Have you got a vest on" one little asked when the lady said no she asked, "why not?" Good question!! Mother knows best!!
