Spring Term

We look forward to welcoming you back to the second half of the Spring Term on Monday 24th of February. We have been busy preparing the role play area and turning it into a ‘Farm Shop’, based on the children’s interests and next steps. This will provide the children with lots of mathematics and writing opportunities as well as developing communication and language.

We are also very excited to be having some duck eggs at Preschool this term after the success of hatching chickens last year! We will be following their progress and reporting of any developments! On Monday we will be having a visit from one of the hens which was hatched at Preschool!

We will be continuing with PE on Monday and Woodland Mornings on Tuesday at the primary school. We will also be making regular visits to the Library during the term.

Please remember to bring in plenty of warm clothes and spares as we continue with the changeable and cold weather. Thank you 🙂

This Week

We are continuing our learning of shapes with Hearts this week to coincide with Valentine’s Day. Some of our activities include, making suncatchers, blowing paint with straws, matching numbers and making heart shaped biscuits.

By acknowledging Valentine’s Day it gives us the opportunity to talk about kindness, time, respect and thoughtfulness to each other, not just at this time but throughout the year. We will be reading the story ‘Love Monster & The Perfect Present’ By Rachel Bright. “A heart warming, remember-the -most-important-things-in -life story”

Just a quick reminder that Monday 10th February is Parents Evening to discuss your child’s progress.

Bad Weather!

Hi all,

Looking at the current weather forecast we thought it might be a good idea to remind you that if the weather turns very bad we will obviously strive to remain open. However, if the weather is very severe and we have concerns about children/staff safety travelling to or from Pre-school, we may have to make the decision to close.

Additionally, during such times, if Sir Robert Hitcham Primary School is closed due to severe weather, then we too will also be closed. Please be assured, that we will update our website and contact families at the earliest opportunity should we have to make the decision to close pre-school.

Could we take this opportunity to remind you that children are given the choice to play outside even in the snow, therefore, please could you send lots of warm clothes especially coats, gloves and hats along with a spare change of clothes in case they get wet whilst playing in the garden. Thank you for your help!
