6th July 2018- Weekly Update

Dear Parents and Carers

What a super busy week we’ve had.

Our adult led focus this week was superheroes! Children made superhero masks, decorating with stickers and pens. Some fantastic creations were made and lots of children then used the masks in their role play.

In PE we practised our throwing skills. Children had a variety of objects to throw through different sized hoops.

On Tuesday we had our leaver’s summer trip to Sutton Courtney Education centre. Children bought their teddies and followed a teddy bear themed trail. A huge thank you to our parent helpers without you we wouldn’t have been able to take the children. It was just lovely.

On Wednesday in our music session we had the musical instruments out. Lots of noise, but very enjoyable!

On Thursday we had our Superheroes Summer Parade. Huge thank you to Vicky Weller who organised the parade and helped to time keep the event! You were fabulous! More Thank yous firstly to all staff and parents who helped collect the bouncy castle and set up and looked after all the activities. A special thank you to Sophie who was brilliant stepping in to help with the tattoos. It was a much organised fun event.

 You can still donate it’s not too late on 


We started to harvest our vegetables and fruit. So far we had beans, peas, courgettes and strawberries and shared them at group/snack times.

Outside on the easel is our annual toy cleaning schedule for the summer. Ask your child which is their favourite and pop your name down, if everyone takes a box of toys it makes it an easy job to complete. If you have extra toys in your box please put in a small bag so they can be put in the correct box when returned. Toys to be returned first day back in September. See below term dates:
