Happy half-term! Hope you all have some fun plans for the week ahead. Here’s a quick update on Pre-School before you all settle down to that well-earned rest.

This week in Pre-School

The children have finished off their shape theme this week. We hope you have all taken time to enjoy the lovely shape-based works of art on the walls. To keep themselves busy as half-term approaches they have been weighing out flour and rice and enjoying experiencing the different textures. Lots of fun and lots of mess!

Pre-School will return on Monday 4th November when the children will be looking at bonfires and fireworks.


Remember that our next Bags2School collection will be taking place on Friday 29th November, giving you an ideal opportunity for a pre-Christmas clear-out. Bags for textiles and further information about what can be donated will be available after half-term.

Spend and Raise

Last year we set up a Spend and Raise site for Pre-School at www.spendandraise.com/cuckoomeadow as a simple and hassle-free way to raise money for Pre-School funds. It hasn’t been well-visited (as yet!) but we thought with Christmas shopping looming large in your minds it might be worth reminding you all and encouraging you to do your online shopping via the site. There is absolutely no charge to you as a shopper but every transaction results in a small commission for Pre-School. Please take time to have a look and pass the link to any friends and family who might also be shopping online.

Remember that Pre-School opens again on Monday 4th. November. See you then!
