As we being the last week of term of this autumn term we will be continuing with lots of Christmas crafts, baking and glitter fun. The children will also be singing our nativity songs and have a little run through of our nativity before the big event on Wednesday. We have our Pre-School Christmas party on Tuesday from 9-1pm. (A food list is available at drop off on Monday for you to sign up for your donation.) Tuesday afternoon will be a normal afternoon so if your child usually attends there is no need to collect them until the normal time.
May I also take the opportunity to say a huge Pre-School thank you and farewell to Keelin Mathias who is off to pastures new, not too far away at the Primary School. Keelin has been an invaluable member of the Pre-School team for the past five years and she will be missed by us all. We will of course still see Keelin on our regular visits to school and even more so when we move into the new building after Easter.
A few pieces of admin to help us keep Pre-School a safe place for staff and children:
- Party – all children are invited to join us in this extended morning off fun – traditional party games, party food, visit from Father Christmas and lots of high energy fun! Please drop your children off at normal time and collect them at 1pm when they should be thoroughly exhausted from all the fun.
- Nativity – Please can we ask you to drop your children off to Pre-School on Wednesday morning at 9am. They will not need their Pre-School bags, just a coat and their nativity outfit. We will then walk the children down to school ready for the performance to begin at 10am. Parents can start to enter the school (with their ticket) from 9.45am. There will be two members of Pre-School staff waiting to greet you. Following the nativity, we will be celebrating the roof going on the new Pre-School with a ‘Topping out ceremony’ before serving drinks and nibbles at the office on the square before you start your Christmas festivities with your loved ones. Tickets will be available to collect from Monday afternoon from Pre-School.
