Spring is in the air and the sun is shining! Our books for this half term are “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and
“Dear Zoo.” We have been busy making a lovely Hungry Caterpillar display. During the next few weeks we
will be looking at growth and will be planting cress. We are always looking for new ideas and activities for the
children, so please let us know if you have any ideas.

 

Parent Review Week
Monday 19th – Friday 23rd March
Please make an appointment to see your child’s key worker during the week to discuss your child’s progress

 

Emergency Contacts
Do we have the most up to date telephone numbers and email address for you?  Can we contact you or an emergency
backup if we need to speak to you during the session? Please ensure you update us with any changes to contact details as soon as possible so we can update our records accordingly.

School Admissions September 2018
If your child is due to start school in September, you should receive confirmation of a school place for your child by
Monday 16th April. We will be confirming with you where your child is going so we can ensure we do everything we
can to ensure a smooth transition for your child. If you have any concerns or worries regarding your child starting
school, please speak to your child’s key worker.

 

Illness
Please do not send your child to playgroup if they’re poorly.  They really are much better off at home. Also, a reminder
that if they have an upset tummy or sickness they cannot return until at least 48 hours after the last episode of
sickness/diarrhoea. If your child is poorly whilst at playgroup we will phone and ask you to collect them.

 

Book Share
The books on the outside book shelf are available for children to take home and read with their parents/carers. Please help yourself.  We also have some lovely busy bags to share at home with lovely games and activities for you to share with your child. These can be found on the children’s self-registration table.

 

Tapestry
Just a reminder that you can add observations and photographs to your child’s learning journal. Some of the children have been talking about holidays they have been on recently and it would be lovely to see some photographs added to their journal. Please speak to Sue if you need help with this.

The fundraising committee have been very busy organising some fantastic prizes for an Easter raffle. Tickets will be on sale from Monday 5th March, with the raffle being drawn on Monday 26th March. Tickets 50p each. Please speak to a member of
