Hello from Cuckoo Meadow at the beginning of a new week. In preschool this week we will be making hedgehogs covered in leaves and trees with leaves made from corks.
At the end of the week we will be celebrating Children In Need by making biscuits and other Pudsey related activities. You can bring your child to preschool on Thursday and Friday dressed in any kind of spotty clothes or accessories and we will have our special Pudsey Bear donation tin for you to make a donation of £1 or more for a very worthy cause.
Hello from Cuckoo Meadow at the end of our first week back. We have had a lovely week looking at Halloween.
We’ve made pumpkins to go on our pumpkin patch, pumpkin biscuits, ghosts and pumpkin scones. The scones were a huge success and were enjoyed by everyone at snack time no refusals at all! so if you would like the recipe please check out our Facebook page.
As we have a smaller number of children attending preschool this term we have been exploring different ways of fundraising and it was suggested by a parent at our recent committee meeting that we ask all parents that whilst they are shopping they add a couple of extra items to their trolleys such as wet wipes, tissues, kitchen roll, paper plates and any kind of craft resources such as stickers, paper, card, felt tip pens or anything we could use for Christmas activities. These donations will make a huge difference to your preschool and we would be very grateful to receive them. Thank you.
Big news! Even though we are smaller in number we are still going ahead with our Christmas nativity this year. However, we will be holding it here in preschool on Friday 21st December at 10.30 which is the last day of term. More details to follow nearer the time.
That’s all for now have a great weekend.
Hello from Cuckoo Meadow. Just a quick reminder that it is half term next week we have an inset day on Friday 19th October so Thursday 18th October will be our last day of this half term. We return on Monday 29th October.
We hope your children have enjoyed looking at our shapes topic this half term, we will be ending this week with a book containing all of the shapes we have made.
Next half term we are looking at Autumn and winter festivals so if you are out and about with your child over half term why not collect some leaves to dry and bring into preschool. Please do not bring in conkers or tree nuts as we have a child with a severe nut allergy. Thank you.
That’s all for now have a great half term.
We have booked our AGM for Thursday 4th October, here at the preschool at 7.30. Please do come along and support us we promise to keep it short! Afterwards there will be an opportunity to discuss how your child has settled into the new term with the staff (an informal parents evening).
You will have by now received your child’s Christmas card! Please return it with any orders by a Friday 5th October to ensure they arrive in good time for Christmas. Thank you.
That’s all for now.
Hello from Cuckoo Meadow at the end of another week.
Thank you to everyone that brought in bags of clothes for our Happy Bags To School collection, we raised an amazing total of £181.50 a fantastic amount to boost Cuckoo Meadow funds.
We have been making houses this week using various shapes. These are displayed on the wall so next time you are in preschool please take the time to have a look. We have also made ‘Sammy Square’ from boxes.
Next week we will be looking at the letter ‘d’ so please take time over the weekend to hunt for items for show and tell remembering that the items should be small enough to fit in your children’s trays.
That’s all for now, enjoy the weekend.
Just a very quick reminder that tomorrow is bag to school day so if you haven’t had a good sort out yet there is still time, please can all bags to brought in by 9am.
Also we have a child with a severe nut allergy so absolutely no nuts of any sort to be brought in, thank you.
Welcome to the start of a new school year. We hope you all had a great summer.
We have a child with a VERY severe nut allergy so please when you are making your child’s lunch do not include anything which may contain nuts. When bringing in items for the interest table please ensure you follow the same rule.
Every day the children are encouraged to take part in show and tell. This is a very important part of the preschool day because it encourages personal and social and communication skills so please take the time to help your child look for something in their bedroom beginning with the appropriate letter. This week we are looking at the letter ‘a’. When looking for something please make sure it is a suitable size to fit in your child’s tray and also please add your child’s name to it.
Dates for your diary:
This half term ends on Thursday 18th October (Friday 19th October inset day)
We return on Monday 29th October.
We break for Christmas on Friday 21st December and return on Monday 7th January.
Cuckoo Meadow has a private/closed Facebook page we have invited you all to join this is a great way of keeping up to date with what your child gets up to at preschool.
We have a happy bags collection organised for Tuesday 18th September. This is an excellent way of getting rid of any unwanted clothes you or your children have grown out of. The bags are collected and weighed and this brings in much needed funds for the preschool. You can include belts, shoes and handbags. Thank you.
