Last half Term

Last term we celebrated the Queen’s birthday by creating crowns and having a tea party. The children looked at people who help us and we had a very special visit from the police officer. Together we explored sea creatures and the sea side, the children enjoyed lots of activities in the sand pit and water tray.

The children participated in sports day, joined in with our beach party and attended our graduation for our pre-school leavers.


Letter of the week

We will be supporting your child’s learning by having a letter of the week, please encourage your child or support them in finding something from home or outside for each different letter of the week. We have a phonics box for your child to put their item into and talk about the letter sounds during group time. This will support them in their phonetic awareness.


Show & Tell

Your child can bring in their show and tell if they like, we will be doing this through key person groups:

Week 1: Swans/Nicola

Week 2: Hedgehogs/Rachel

Week 3: Rabbits/Siobhan

Week 4: Chickens/Carmen

Week 5: Badger/Courtney


Help required

We always need help with small DIY/Garden jobs so if you have any time please speak to Nicola.


Please feel free to bring in a pair of slippers for your child. This will support their independence in changing their shoes.
