The children looked at colours last week naming them and learning to identify them. They played colour games and did lots of matching and sorting and they used different colours to create pictures. This week they will be playing matching games with shapes and they will learn how to identify and name the 4 basic shapes.

We visit the main school library every Monday; the children are learning to line up and walk over to the big school. They have been learning how important it is to be quiet and listen carefully to stories and that Libraries have lots of lovely books to choose from.

Library books will be changed every Monday during session times.

P.E is every Friday; please send your child to Pre-school in their pumps/trainers on a Friday. Thank you.

The children are learning to sit for short periods and listen to each other, taking turns in conversation. This is a very important social skill and is particularly hard when you are 3 and 4 years old but your children are trying really hard.


We are still waiting for some cooking money to be paid; it is £20 for the year. Please send it in with the slip as soon as you can. Many thanks.

Could we have any monies outstanding for either lunch time (children that stay) or Fees from those people that pay.

Please remember that if you have any queries or worries, you can ask any member of staff.

Pre-school Team.
