22nd June 2018- Weekly update

Dear Parents and Carers

What a magical week we’ve had!

Our adult led focus was magical gardens with fairies and elves. Thank you for all the donation of veg/fruit trays. Most of the children made a magical garden and some even made a garden every day.  They decorated them with resources such as pine cones, flowers, stones, moss, pretend toadstools and feathers sprinkled with a little magic glitter.

In PE we had Perform drama workshop. The children went on an adventure to the jungle to help save blaze a special golden cheetah which had been captured and needed saving. The children were all superstars and jumped at the chance to help and join in. Thank you Alana for running the workshop.

At Forest School this week we made fairy and elves houses, played with the mud café and dinosaurs in the sand. A message from Kate “Next week we’re strawberry picking, please ensure they have the appropriate clothing in their bags. Thank you.”

In our music session this week we had ring games.

Cooking this week, we made fruit salad and made sandwiches. Yummy!

Friday afternoon we had lots of technology toys out, lots of counting and building towers of bricks.

Dates and Reminders

Next week’s weather forecast is to be hot! Please can you apply sun cream to your child before they attend and send in a named drinks bottle and hat. Could you also make sure there is a change of clothes…There’s going to be lots of water play!

Invitations have gone out for our Sponsored Superheroes Summer Parade. We need the reply slips returned as soon as possible but in the meantime please donate on line at


It should go straight to our donation page and please make sure you share with friends and family.

The children who leave to go to school in July should also receive their details about the trip to Sutton Courtenay education centre. Again we need to have reply slips returned as soon as possible. Thank you.  We also have a small collection of second hand uniform (Goring Primary) for sale. Please speak to staff who will be able to help you. You can’t have too many jumpers/cardigans you will be surprised how quickly they go missing or get lost.

We still haven’t had anyone volunteer to take on the bouncy castle which is a real shame as it’s a major contribution to our fundraising target. If anyone has any ideas, please let us know.

If you’re able to help tomorrow for half an hour we still need volunteers to help with the bouncy castle at the primary school fete.

Next week its superheroes, we still need kitchen roll insides please we’re making superhero cuffs. I think it may get a little noisy!

Have a lovely weekend and see you next week.

Kind regards

Preschool staff
