March 2012 Newsletter
This Month’s Theme
Apologies for not sending out a February newsletter as it was jam packed with fun! Our topic was numbers and all activities included lots of counting, using number and positional language such as taller, smaller and under, and practising recognising and writing numbers.
World Book Day
On Thursday 1st March, we celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as our favourite character from a book. Among the staff were Hermione from Harry Potter and a Dalamation and the children delighted us with an array of characters such as Robin Hood, The Gruffalo and Oliver Twist to name but a few! Well done to all the children who made such a big effort.
Book Bags and Uniforms
We are pleased to offer Wingrave Pre-School book bags for the children. They cost £3.50 and can be bought on site. We have also received a new stock of uniforms so please let us know if you require anything. Polo shirts are £6.50, Sweatshirts £7.50 and baseball caps £4. They come in sizes 1-2, 3-4 and 5-6. Hats are one size.
We still have a few teatowels left so please let us know if you would like one. Great Mother’s Day gift for £3.
Due to staff changes and rota changes, some of the children’s key carers have changed. Please check the list of the entrance.
Visit from the Police!
The children were very excited to have a special visitor— Community Police Officer Chris Baker – who talked to the children about what the Police do. She let them try on her jacket and hat and we got to sit in the police van, see the flashing lights and hear the noisy siren!
