This is our last week of half term, we break up this Friday for a week. We have a busy week ahead finding out all about our senses. We will be hearing, tasting, seeing, smelling and touching lots of different things. Why not do some ‘blind’ testing at home to see if your child can guess correctly what they can smell or taste.

Happy Chinese New Year! It’s the Year of the pig – those people who are born in this year (1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995 and 2007) are said to be chivalrous, optimistic and frank, kind and loyal friends and light of heart. Sometimes they can be a little too trusting. Which year were you born in? This week we have lots of Chinese based activities planned and the children will have the opportunity to try Chinese food at snack times.

January has almost come to an end and Christmas is now a memory away. This week we will be making lots of noise as we will be playing different instruments and listening to the sounds they make. The children will also have the opportunity to make their own instrument and join our little band. Do you play an instrument? Could you bring it in and play it to the children? If you can please let a member of staff know when you are able to come in.

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.

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..."
After a new sibling arrived one of our little ones asked, "Daddy did you get the baby from the shop?" If only it was that easy!
"Have you got a vest on" one little girl asked, when the lady said no she asked, "why not?" Good question!! Mother knows best!!
