Welcome back to the summer term a warm welcome to our new starters.

Rising 4’s: Our topic this half term for the rising 4’s is “dinosaurs”,  and we will be finding out about some of the different dinosaurs.  As part of our topic, we will be having a visit from “Adventure Babies” for a wonderful sensory storytelling session during the morning session on 10th May.

Rising 2’s & 3’s: Our topic this half term is “under the sea”, and the children will be learning all about the different creatures living in the sea.  They will be enjoying lots of fun craft activities making different creatures.

Rising 4’s bookbags:  Please remember to bring bookbags in for every session your child attends.

Sharing books at home: we have a selection of books in our ‘lending library’ box in our rising 2’s & 3’s lobby for you to borrow and read at home with your child. Just show a member of staff the book you have chosen and they will sign it out for you.

Sunny weather:  Hopefully we will get some lovely sunny weather this term.  Please can you ensure you child comes in with sun hats and sun cream applied as needed.  If your child is in all day, we will re-apply the sun cream in the afternoon (please bring in a named bottle of suncream, so that we can do this)

Spare clothes / nappies: Please make sure your child comes to Pre-School with spare clothes (in a named bag please). If they are in nappies, please make sure you bring in a supply, together with wipes and creams.

Naming items: Please ensure all items are clearly named (clothes, lunchboxes, drinks bottles etc)
