Time really is flying at the moment.  Over the next term we will be looking at transport and journeys.  Children leaving for school will be having their taster visits to Year R and teachers will visit the playgroup to help with transition.  Please let us know if you would like to come in and help, especially if your child will be leaving us soon.


School Summer Fete

We are running a stall during the school fete on Saturday 17th June 11am to 2pm.  Our stall will have a Hawaiian theme, with mocktails, tattoos, nail painting, hook a duck and a selfie photo booth with Hawaiian props. Please come along and support us and the school.


Sunny Weather

Please remember to send your child in with a hat during the hot weather.  Also it is a good idea to apply sun cream before coming to Playgroup as we do spend a lot of time outside.


Parent questionnaire

Thank you to everyone who completed the parent questionnaire.  In total we had 26 replies and the information has been collated for your information.  Your views are so important in our development and for the success of the group.
