Ho, ho, ho!

Welcome back from the half term break and a very warm welcome to our new starters Rafferty and Lacie.

Christmas is just around the corner so this will be a very exciting term for the children. As well as preparing for their Nativity play, the children will be learning about Winter, making bird seed feeders, decorating gingerbread for the Partridge Fair, writing letters to Santa and doing lots of festive crafts. They will also be preparing a tree for St Laurence's Christmas Tree Festival on the 12th and 13th December. There will be plenty to keep them busy!

This term the children will be learning all about Autumn. They will be going for walks around the village, talking about colours and animals that hibernate and looking at the seasonal changes. While they are out and about they will collect things they find to make an Autumn collage and leaves for leaf printing.

Barnardo's Big Toddle

on Tuesday, 07 July 2015. Posted in Events

On 24th June the pre-school children took part in The Big Toddle to raise money for Barnardo's. This is the UK's biggest charity event for under 5's.

We set off from pre-school for a walk to the park, around the playing field and back to pre-school. Although this isn't a great distance, please remember that some of our children are only 2!

Thank you to everyone who sponsored the children. We managed to raise a fantastic £307.20!
