It’s one of our favourite topics this week – Music. We will be looking at different types of instruments and music. The children will 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.

It’s shape week. We are looking at and talking about different shapes. You can help your child when you are out and about by looking for different shapes in the environment… traffic signs, packaging in the supermarket, windows, doors etc.

The snow trend continues this is the fourth year running that snow has coincided with our ‘Winter’ topic!! Unfortunately, it didn’t stay for very long and there wasn’t enough to go sledging or build a snowman. But the children were very excited to see it! There isn’t any more forecast but just in case it snows again you can check out ‘Our Parents’ page on our website to see any changes to our opening hours.

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!!
