Macmillan Coffee Morning

Week Commencing 27th September

Our Story this week is Simon Sock.

Simon Sock lives in the drawer with all the other socks, who often go on adventures: the sparkly socks go to parties, the sports socks do races, and the woolly socks go to the park. Problem is, you have to be a pair of socks to be chosen, and Simon doesn’t have a pair. He’s on his own. He’s odd.

Ted tries to help by pairing Simon up with some other stripy things in the house: a snake, a fish, but nothing works. Then, there’s a voice from under the chest of drawers – Simone, Simon’s pair! Simon is so happy – but it turns out that just because someone looks like your perfect match, they aren’t necessarily the person who will make you the happiest.

Hayley chose this book as it’s a lovely, bright, and sweet book about relationships and belonging. We can also look at creating, recognizing and recreating patterns. Hayley will read this weeks story.

Week commencing 20th September

This week we are looking at the book Just One Of Those Days.

It had been a long night… so Mr and Mrs Bear woke up late.

When Mr and Mrs Bear wake up late, it’s raining outside – and Baby Bear is late for nursery. Then Mrs Bear sits on her glasses at work and Mr Bear spills his coffee! Oh dear – it seems this is just going to be one of those days! But the loveable Bear family muddle through cheerfully, and there’s even a surprise for Baby Bear when Mr Bear gets home from work.

Week commencing 13th September

We have had such a wonderful first week back. We hope your children enjoyed it as much as we did.

Our library system is now up and running your child can borrow a book every time they are in as long as they bring their previous book back. This is a wonderful thing we can offer your children, but it will only work if you bring the books back.

We have also found a solution to the wet clothes problem (I think) I have purchased reusable drawstring bags for each child to put their wet items in. They cost 50p each we would appreciate each family buying at least one each for their child. If it doesn’t work, please let me know we are really trying to be more echo friendly. Our new mixed recycling bin should also arrive next week, and we were able to get one thanks to the fund raising we did with our walk the world last year so thank you for all your help.

We are a charity and Committee run setting, any fundraising we do goes straight back into the Pre-School to benefit yours and future children.
This week we are looking at the story Giraffes can’t dance. Catherine chose this story to help support and show children that everybody likes different things and are good at different things. It also teaches children to support each other and to try and learn new skills.
Giraffes Can’t Dance is a touching tale of Gerald the giraffe, who wants nothing more than to dance. With crooked knees and thin legs, it’s harder for a giraffe than you would think. Gerald is finally able to dance to his own tune when he gets some encouraging words from an unlikely friend. With light-footed rhymes and high-stepping illustrations, this tale is gentle inspiration for every child with dreams of greatness

Week Commencing 7th September

We cannot wait to see you all this week, and to welcome the new children to our Pre-School family.
Each week we choose a story as our topic, this term we will focus on stories which support transitions, and family.
If your child has a favorite story please let us know so we can choose it as a topic one week.
We also have a Jolly phonics sound of the week each week and a Makaton sign of the week. Please share these with your children each week.
This week we are looking at the story:
Goat Goes To Playgroup
By Julia Donaldson  Illustrated by Nick Sharratt

Playgroup has begun. Time to have some fun. There’s a commotion in the classroom as Goat and the other animals spend the day at playgroup. The musical instruments and the dressing up box are lots of fun, but—oh dear!—Goat gets into a muddle or two. A comforting story for any child starting at, or already attending, a playgroup.
I will read this story to you on Class Dojo.
Our main focus will be supporting your children emotionally to ensure they are happy, secure and settled at Pre-School. We will discuss how Goat feels about going to playgroup, how he felt when his Mummy came at the end, that’s its okay to have accidents and how his friends were very kind to him.
