Weekly Newsletter 29/01/2018
Spring Term 2018.
We have two more weeks, including this week before half term. We break up on Friday 9h February for one week and return on Monday 19th February. Friday 9th February will be A NON-UNIFORM day. Come to Pre-school dressed as someone/something that you love eg you could come in your pyjamas, in your football kit, dressed up as a princess etc.
Last week the children were counting and comparing, we used the weighing scales to talk about “heavier” and “lighter” and “balance”. We used the mathematical language of “more than”, “less than” and “the same”. The children were really good and we could see a lot of brain cells working as they worked out what was what.
This week the children will be talking to the children about who they share stories with outside of pre-school.
We visit the library on Monday.
PE is on Friday.
On Wednesday of last week Vicky, the “Little Urchin” photographer was at Pre-school. She took some beautiful photos of the children dressed in a vintage style. The proofs should be back this week for you to look at and order.
Vicky has asked me to tell you that if your child has any scratches or sores on their photo then you can request on the form that they are air brushed out.
Last week we had several children who brought the new Nutella bar to pre-school in their lunchbox. Although they are very yummy we are a nut free Pre-school so please save them for home. Many thanks.
The children are taken over to play at the main school with the Reception classes on a Tuesday morning and a Thursday afternoon. This is an opportunity for the children to familiarise themselves with the big school and meet the teachers and they get to meet and play with other children.
Please encourage your child to put on their own coat at home and even do it up. I know it’s tricky but practice makes perfect!
Any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to speak to any of the team.
