Update 17th May 2019

Hello from Cuckoo Meadow at the end of another week.  

Thank you to Richard and Gail Dawe for bringing in your lovely sheep and lambs we had a fantastic time feeding them with a bottle, the children had a great time nearly as much as the adults did!

A quick reminder there will be no preschool on Thursday 23rd May because of the European elections, preschool will be open on Friday 24th May as usual.  This is also the last day of half term.  We return after the half term on Monday 3rd June.

It is that time of the year where we start to nag please remember to bring your child into preschool already having suncream applied and make sure that a named sun hat is in their bag.  Thank you.

We hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Update 1st May 2019

Hello from Cuckoo Meadow.  Just a reminder that preschool is closed tomorrow (Thursday 2nd May and Friday 3rd May).  Monday is bank holiday so back to preschool on Tuesday.

A massive thank you to everybody that has brought in filled Smartie tubes and sponsorship forms.  So far we have raised the amazing sum of £600.  This will help pay for the Zoo Lab visit in the Summer term so again thank you very much.

The three largest amounts of sponsorship were raised by:  Arabella Lovelock, Max Turner and Joshua Lee, who will all receive a prize, so well done to them.

Enjoy the bank holiday weekend.

Hello from Cuckoo Meadow we hope you all enjoyed the Easter break.  On Thursday this week, 25th April we will be holding our sports day (weather permitting) so don’t forget to bring in your FULL Smarties tubes so the children can hand them in at the end of their walk around the Meadow.  Please check your parent mail on sports day so that we can keep you updated on whether the event will take place.

We would also like to inform you of another day closure all thanks to Brexit!  We will be closed on Thursday 23rd May for polling.

As the weather is now on the up could you please ensure that your child brings a hat which has been named into preschool each day.

Sports Day

On Thursday 25th April we will be holding a small sports day from 2-3pm. Please come along and cheer your little ones on as they have some fun on the meadow.

The last event will be a run around the meadow. We will be sending home a smarties tube and sponsor form for each child this week. The children will each be completing a sponsored walk of 10 laps of the meadow between now and sports day to raise money for their pre-school. Please try and fill your smarties tube with any change to help support them and the school. 

The children can then give in their filled tube at the end of the final lap.

Tea and cake will be available to buy. Now let’s just hope the sun comes out to play too!

Update 7th March

Hello from Cuckoo Meadow.  Just a quick reminder parents evening is Tuesday 19th March, if you haven’t booked your ten minute slot please ask a member of staff to add you to the list.

If you would like to order any name tags for your children’s clothes, lunch boxes, shoes etc speak to us and we can put you in touch with an excellent company which also gives us some commission.  As these are sticky labels there is no sewing involved and they stay firmly in place.  

Another way to earn some much needed commission for pre-school is whilst you are shopping online go to www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/cuckoomeadowpreschool before making any purchases.

That’s all for now, enjoy your weekend.

Following on from Kat’s (Mrs Andrews’) Action Research Project introducing Makaton signing into the setting, we would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has participated. We have all learnt a lot about another way of communicating and we have had lots of fun in preschool with the songs and signs! A questionnaire has been handed out and we would be grateful if you could return it with your feedback by this Thursday 14th February     

We hope you all have a great half term.
