An additional newsletter. Newsflash…
Unexpectedly and with sadness, yesterday, we accepted the formal resignation of Aunty Helen, who is leaving to pursue a different career path.
We would like to thank her for all her hard work and wish her all the very best for her future career.
We will be advertising as soon as possible and should have new staff in time for September when we return. The post will be advertised in the church bulletin, our website and via our Facebook page.
SUMMER FAIR along with donations and further sales of cards, Avon squares, we have so far made about £640.00 and the sale of the mud kitchen should take this up another £100 or more we hope! Not too late to put in a bid. Winning bid to be announced on Thursday
This week we are continuing our pirate theme, making chocolate treasure chest cakes, learning new pirate songs and we’ll have pirate parties to say goodbye to our friends moving on to school. The children are having great fun finding pirate gold and we will be playing games where we count out treasure, compare amounts etc the older children will also be making up simple games for the other children to play, using hoops, quoits etc seeing as we missed out on mini-Olympics this year.
All transitions are now complete and will be shared with your child’s teachers. Thank you for all your kind words. Thank you too to those who have completed a questionnaire.
30 HOURS FUNDING * if applying for 30 hours from September, you need to be doing this now and have a code before 31st August. Parents receiving 30 hour check your ’grace period’ dates! If not returning in September then do not worry, we have your funding up to end of the summer term.
SEPTEMBER SESSIONS – please let us know which sessions you want from September if you have not already done so. Thanks. I need to be able to let staff know when they will be needed.
WEATHER rain at last! Please do send coats in as the children have loved going out in it! I think they had forgotten what rain felt like!
