July 2020

Following Government guidelines we were pleased to be able to open our doors to our older children on 1st June.  I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff who have worked hard to ensure the setting is a safe and clean environment for all.

The children have been enjoying outdoor play in our garden making the most of this warm weather.  We have also been reading Spinderella by Julia Donaldson, a story about a spider who has a passion for football!  She tries to play a match with her brothers and sisters but she doesn’t know how many spiders should be on each team.  Even worse, she can’t count the goals!  Luckily for Spinderella, her hairy godmother has a brilliant plan!

It’s near the end of our school year and we are all very sad to have to say goodbye to our 19 children who leave us to go to big school.    It’s always a sad occasion when we say goodbye to the children and their families.  We care and nurture these children for the time they are with us and it is always an emotional time for the staff but we wish them all the very best for their future education.

Due to not being able to welcome visitors at our pre-school at the moment we have been in touch with all the teachers from the 7 schools we are feeding into this year by telephone and video calls to make sure our children’s transitions goes smoothly.

Again to help with the transitioning into school we have some P.E. sessions arranged for this term.  It helps the school leavers become more independent by changing in and out of their P.E kits.

As we are near the end of our school year we must offer our thanks to Chris Douglass and the village hall committee for all their support this year.

We would also like to thank Teston Farm shop, who support us throughout the year by supplying the very best locally produced fresh fruit for our children’s snack time.

We wish everyone a safe and enjoyable summer.
