Welcome back to everyone. We hope you all had a lovely summer break. We would like to say a big warm welcome to our new children who are starting with us this term and we hope you all settle in nicely. 

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 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 some of our children settling into this term with various games and activities, including some trips to the library and to our woodland area.

Below are some of our photos taken from our trip to Lotmead Farm, July 2018. The children all had such a great time.
