Welcome back! We hope you had a great half term. This term will be very busy as we have lots planned leading up to Christmas.

We will also be introducing our Christmas songs ready for the Christmas sing-a-long.

Posting letters to Santa – Friday 2nd December

If you are available to assist, please put your name down on the list in Playgroup. To keep the children safe, we like to have a 1:2 adult/child ratio.

Times of walks 9am and 12.45pm


Christmas songs

The children will be starting to learn some Christmas songs over the next few weeks. This is so we can put on a little performance for the parents and carers on Wednesday 14th December. Please come along and watch your child (Maximum of 2 adults per child due to space restrictions). There will be a performance during both the morning and afternoon session at 11am and 3pm with each performance lasting approximately 20minutes. If your child is not in on a Wednesday, you are free to bring them along to either performance so they get the chance to join in. Invitations will be sent via Tapestry.


Christmas Parties

We have booked these for Friday 16th December during session. If your child doesn’t attend a session on Friday they will be invited to one of the parties. More details will be sent out nearer the time.

Flu Immunisations – guidance from the Department of Health

All children aged two, three and four years can get the vaccine at their general practice. This is usually administered by the practice nurse. The vaccine is given as a nasal spray. This is quick and painless and no injection is involved.
