Dear Parents/carers
The weather is now changing. We can all feel the chill. Please can you make sure you provide warm clothes, coats, scarves, hats and gloves and wellies. PLEASE NAME ALL YOUR CHILD’S CLOTHES AND SHOES/BOOTS WITH A LAUNDRY MARKER OR NAME TAGS Some children have the same shoes, boots etc. and it can be very confusing.

Learning Journey Reviews
These will be week beginning 30th November. All parents/carers will be welcome to come and have a chat with your child’s keyperson. Appointment sheets will be put up for you to choose a time suitable for you.
Daisies: 3rd, 4th Dec Poppies: 2nd Dec Sunflowers/Buttercups: 30th Nov, 1st Dec
In November we will celebrate Diwali. If you have any suggestions and/or anything you can offer us we would appreciate it.
WORKSHOPS
The last week before our Christmas closure will be Workshop Week when parents will be invited to come and ‘work’ with their children for a time. We will let you know what’s going on so you can prepare yourself.

Christmas Closure
Nursery will close 24th December at 3pm and will reopen at 7.30am 4th January 2016. The last day of term for funding will be 18th December and funding restarts January 4th.

Zumbini
Unfortunately we have to say ‘Goodbye’ to our Zumbini sessions. The children have really enjoyed them and it has been great to see their confidence and participation grow and develop over the weeks. We hope she can return to us soon.
As a change we would like to introduce ‘Creative Flair’. This is a different type of dance and music session and costs £2.90 per session. If you would like your child to take part please complete the slip attached to the letter as soon as possible. The total cost is £29.00 for a 10 week course.
Frenchtastic “Bonjour”
The staff and the children have appreciated our French lessons. They are learning lots of French words and singing new songs.

HELP NEEDED!!!!!!!
Can you help us with: Old pots and pans, wooden spoons, mobile phones, old style radios or anything with buttons to press?
We also desperately need some buggies in good condition to make it easier for us to get ‘out and about’.
