Autumn Term (2nd Half)
Monday 4th November to Friday 20th December 2019
Welcome back after the Half term holidays, we trust you all had a relaxing break. Thanks to all of you who attended and helped out at the Pumpkin Ball and to all those who baked or donated cakes, biscuits and tombola prizes. It was an exciting event with a special visit from Jake Guile and his reptiles. We raised around £350 which will be used to buy resources to support physical development.
As you all know Mia sadly left us after 16 years of service, we wish her all the best for the future. She very kindly bought the children some balance bikes which they were very excited about.
I am very pleased to announce Alice Bates will be joining us as a preschool practitioner, she is qualified and experienced in early years, and we are excited to welcome her to our team.
Please can you remember to use the car park opposite the village hall when dropping off and collecting your children. This ensures that parents and children can see any oncoming traffic clearly before they cross the road.
Reminder: for children due to start primary school in September 2020 the deadline to apply for a place is 15th January 2020. Please return your readiness for school questionnaire to me ASAP.
Important dates this term
Our AGM is being held on Monday 11th November at 7.30pm in the large room at the back of the Village Hall. Please come along and support your child’s playgroup or just come and see what happens on the committee.
This term involves lots of planning towards Christmas and our annual singalong. The show will be on Tuesday 17th December at 9.15 am (children to be dropped off at 9am) and will last for roughly 45 minutes. All children need to be taken home at the end of the performance please. Everybody is invited – Mums, Dads, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, neighbours etc. (there will be a small charge for tickets as we are limited to the number of people attending (3 tickets per family), due to the fire regulations in the hall). There will be refreshments available to purchase on the day and a raffle will be held. Any donations for the raffle will be greatly received.
Our Christmas party this year will be on Friday 20th December from 9am till 11 am. ALL children are invited to attend this complimentary party with food provided. The party will finish at 11am for all children.
Please can we remind you that we go out in ALL weathers so can you ensure that your child has suitable clothing for the winter season and NAME your child’s clothing.
We also encourage parents to think ‘healthy alternatives’ to cakes and crisps in your child’s packed lunch as we are trying to promote heathy eating.
Thank you for your support with this
Spring term starts on Monday 6th January 2020
