Week commencing 18th October
Our story this week is Calm Down Zebra,A celebration of colours and patterns, “Let’s help baby Joe. He’s learning his colours, which he doesn’t yet know. I’ll paint pictures of you – please line up for me. If I use the right colours then Joe will soon see.” Everyone’s favourite, enthusiastic zebra is back, eager to get in on the act as Annie tries to teach her little brother about colours. But although things don’t turn out quite the way she imagines, together they make the world a brighter and more beautiful place!Our Jolly Phonics sound of the week is gOur Makaton sign of the week is Zebra
Week Commencing 11th OctoberHelloFor those of you who missed the announcement in the week our new sensory sleep room is up and running. Please do check it out at pick up times, we think its amazing.Also there is chicken pox doing the rounds, we are yet to have a case but please be vigilant and aware. If your child develops chicken pox do not administer Ibuprofen as its makes the spots worse please just use paracetamol. Children may return once ALL of the spots have scabbed over.
This week we are looking at the story Monkey Puzzle. It’s a lovely story teaching our children about similarities and differences and that not everybody in their families will look the same. Families come in all shapes and sizes.The story revolves around a child-like monkey who has lost her mother in the deep, thick, hot jungle. The monkey is then assisted to find her mother by a butterfly, who tries to think of whereabouts in the jungle she might be. However, the butterfly keeps suggesting incorrect animals as the monkey’s mother, including an elephant, a snake, a spider, a parrot, a frog and a bat. Eventually, the butterfly and the monkey find the monkey’s Dad, who says, “Come, little monkey, come, come, come, it’s time I took you home to…” and then shortly after another call, Butterfly finds the monkey’s lost mother and the monkey is happy again, as well as the butterfly.Our Jolly phonics sign of the week is fOur Makaton sign of the week is family

We have advice and guidance and worksheets available all to help support your Mental Health.Also, we have been asked to share with you some information on choking hazards and certain foods. Please see the attached advice.This week Alishia has chosen the book Bing, big slide. She chose this book as it’s all about trying new things, and our Pre-School children are all trying new things every day. It helps show them it’s okay to be scared and that their friends are there to help them.
Bing and Pando are visiting the park in this wonderful story book, based on the hit TV series. Woohoo! There’s a new climbing frame in the park. It has a tunnel and a bridge and a slide. A very high slide. Will Bing be brave enough to slide down the very high slide? Trying something new… it’s a Bing thing!

Macmillan Coffee Morning
Huge thank you for all your cake donations and support on the morning, also to Temple Spa for helping raise a huge £211.59!!! Your all amazing.
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.
