Newsletter - Pre-School March/April 2017

Welcome to our new children at Pre-School.

This half term (March and April) our topics are ‘Old, New and Growing’.

These are some of the things we’ll be talking and learning about:

  • Makaton signs
  • Easter
  • ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’
  • Babies
  • Plants
  • Life cycles
  • Our bodies
  • St David’s Day
  • St Patrick’s Day

We are collecting Sainsburys Active Kids vouchers again so please pass them in and remind all your family and friends as well!

Check out our Facebook page for reminders of dates etc and to keep up to date with what’s going on.

If you have any problems logging into ‘Tapestry’, our online learning journals, please let us know. You are always welcome to come in and discuss your child’s progress with their Key Worker.

Occasionally parents forget their car seat, we have a spare for older children which we can lend out but not a baby one, so if anyone has a baby car seat that they don’t need any more we’d be very grateful for it.
