Welcome back to everyone. We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas. We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy New Year! 

We look forward to another fun filled term this term, where we will continue to do our weekly activities including; baking, library visits, wellie walks, dance activities, songs and rhymes and lots of free play.

We would also like to say a big welcome to all of the new children who will be starting with us in Acorns this term.

  We will keep you regularly updated with any dates for your diaries and photos of your children. If any of you wish to talk to us regarding your child/ren's learning, please do come in and talk to us whenever you like. We also hold regular parent days which will keep you updated on your child/ren's progress.

Above are some photo's of our Christmas Party 2018. The children all had a lovely time playing games and meeting Father Christmas.

Above are some of our photo's taken from our Christmas Stay & Play session which some of our parents attended with their children. We had so much fun playing, gluing, painting, sticking and making. Lots of glitter was involved and the children (and parents) had a great time! Thank you for all who attended.
