Space and Aliens
We have had lots of fun over the last few weeks
learning about space, decorating planets, which we have displayed in the playground for our parents to see. We made some rockets and alien passports and talked about the places we have visited. But best of all we had great fun reading “Aliens love Underpants” and
even made and decorated our own underpants to put
on our washing line.

 

Fundraising
Our Alien dress up day raised £35.70 for the group. Thank you for your support

 

Chinese New Year
We celebrated the Chinese New Year by making lanterns and lucky envelopes. We made a role play Chinese Restaurant and the children got the opportunity to taste noodles and prawn crackers.

 

Active Kid Vouchers
We are now collecting the Sainsbury’s Active Kids Vouchers. Last year we managed to collect enough vouchers to buy lots of lovely outdoor equipment. Please support us this year – Thank you!

 

Site Security
Please can we remind you to shut the black gate after you are let in through the buzzer system. The safety of the school children and playgroup children is a priority, so please do not leave this gate open at any time.

Valentines
Children will be busy making cards, decorations and flowers for someone they love

 

Collection time
Could we please ask parents to wait at the bottom of the slope in the playground whilst waiting for their children to be sent home. This makes it easier for staff to ensure that children are being safely reunited with their parent/carer. Please keep the exit clear too. Thank you for your support.

 

Toys from home
We appreciate that some children need to bring comfort toys with them to Playgroup and that’s fine. However, I would ask that you try and discourage your child bringing in their small toys from home as we have had lots go missing lately, which is upsetting for the children. Thank you.

 

Desperately needed
We have run out of spare clothing for children. If you have any at home which your child has borrowed, could it please be returned as soon as possible. Also, we desperately require boy’s and girl’s pants, girl’s leggings and jumpers for both girls and boys. If you have any you could donate we would be very grateful.
