WOW of the Month

The children love to share and celebrate their achievements and learning 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.
