If the event of severe weather, it may be necessary to close the pre-school. If this decision is taken, we will advise you in the following ways: • By email, as long as we have internet service. • This website, a notice will be displayed on the Home page as a headline. • On our Facebook page.
In recognition of World Book Day on Thursday 5th March, it would be lovely to see the children dressing up in their favourite book character during week commencing 2nd March. The children can also bring in their favourite stories which we will share at magic box time.
The children love to share and celebrate their achievements and learning they do at home with their friends and staff at pre-school. This is shared as a group activity before the children go home at 12 noon and 3.00 pm. The apple is then placed on our WOW Tree on the classroom wall for the month. At the end of the month, we will be awarding a 'WOW of the Month'. The winner will receive a prize and a certificate. Please write on the apple anything which your child has learnt or achieved. This may be linked to their Next Steps or anything which you feel is worthy of recognition! Please help yourself to apples which will be with the signing-in sheet. There is a golden apple by the signing-in sheet for the children to post their WOW apples. Please write your child's name on the apple. We hope that you and your child will enjoy sharing with us their achievements and learning.
In line with our Food and Drink Policy, we promote healthy eating and regard snack and mealtimes as an important part of our day. Eating represents a social time for children and adults and helps children to learn about healthy eating. As part of Holly’s Level 4 Certificate, she has become the pre-school’s PANCo (Physical Activity and Nutrition Coordinator). Holly has displayed lots of useful information on our blue parent notice board. She has also sent out information to give suggestions on providing a healthy lunch at pre-school. Every month, together with our Newsletter, Holly will choose a topic or activity to help keep your children healthy.
