Frost Fair

Friday November 24th see’s the Annual Primary School Frost Fair. The Pre-school will be running an adult game of water or wine. We would like to ask for any donations of wine for this very good cause. Please hand them in to the staff at Pre-school and we shall collect. There will also be a children’s game of a lucky dip.

New Grass

Our new grass has been laid and it’s fantastic!   Nearly all the children said ‘WOW’ when they saw it.  We’ve kept the toys very simple on it today – letting them run, roll and dance on it.  We’ve moved the goal onto it and we now have lots of newly keen footballers!

Thank you to all the Committee, parents, families, and the local community to have helped transform this area – it really has made a huge difference!


Week Beginning 30th October 2017

Welcome back to Pre-school, we hope you all had a good half-term holiday.

This term we are looking at, talking about and counting different types of toys, this week it is ‘dolls’.  In the water we can fill different sized bottles with jugs, some bottles have holes in some do not.  In the sand we can search for Pirate treasure with magnets.

The activities this week will include: mixing paints, scooping out/carving pumpkins, Halloween light table, making playdough, Library visit, playing board games, number games on the laptop, shape printing, toilet roll firework pictures, firework splat pictures and firework iced biscuits.

Please come along to the camel racing evening!

On Saturday 11th November, the committee are holding a joint fundraising camel racing evening with Debenham Bowls Club to raise money for both groups.  We are hoping that lots of our families will be able to come along and join in the fun.  Tickets are £8.00 each or £15.00 for two and this includes a ploughman’s supper.  There will be members of the committee selling tickets at pre-school during the morning drop off times the week we come back from half-term.  If you aren’t sure who the committee are – do ask one of members of staff and we’ll point you in the right direction!

We hope you have a lovely week off and see you on Monday 30th October!

Diwali Decorations

We talked about Diwali today and that some people celebrate it by having brightly coloured pictures on the ground outside their houses.   Some of the children then went outside and decorated the path into pre-school.

We hope you all have a lovely half-term holiday, we’ll see you back on Monday 30th October 2017.

We’ve handed over our Food Bank donations!

This afternoon, Rev. Susan Bates popped in to see us and we handed over our donations for the local food bank.   Rev. Bates was very grateful and she said a big thank you to all the children and their families for the items.   The children were very excited to tell her about what they had put in the box!

Thank you again for all your kind donations to this worthwhile charity.

Week Beginning 16th October 2017

This week we are looking back at all the different types of weather we’ve talked about this half term.  In the water we can play with small jugs, tubes and pipettes.  In the sand we can play with the woodland animals.

Yummy Apple Crumble!

Friday morning we made apple crumble using some of the apples we bought when we walked to the greengrocers this week.  The children chopped the apples, stirred in the sugar and cinnamon and then filled up the silver trays.  We had lots of help to rub the butter, flour and sugar together too!  This is another activity to develop muscles in little fingers to help hold pens properly when they are a bit bigger!
We hope you enjoyed the crumble at home!

A Walk to the Greengrocers

This morning we walked to the Greengrocer’s to buy some fruit for our snack.  The children were very good at holding an adults hand and looking and listening for traffic on the way.  They were also noticing lots of things on the way e.g. ‘a white car’, ‘a cat’, ‘pretty flowers’.
