Thursday 16th July 2.50pm at pre-school – This popular event will be open to parents, grandparents and friends and will show the children performing some songs and rhymes learned over the previous weeks. This is usually a very popular event and can stretch our building’s capacity to seat everyone. This year we ask that you give us an indication of the numbers in your party that will be attending. If your child is leaving pre-school this July for school and they don’t usually attend pre-school on a Thursday afternoon but they would like to take part in this concert please speak with Jo or Jane ASAP so that they can be included in the performance. This is a special time for the children and staff as we say Good bye and Good Luck for the future as well as look back at the last months or years at Ridings Pre-School.
We were unfortunately let down by Tempest Photographers in June as they failed to turn up as planned to photograph our children who are leaving for school. We did however manage to get Paul Cooper to come along at a moments notice to take a group picture. Each child on the photo will be given a copy in their Learning Journey that you will receive before they leave pre-school. Thank You to Paul for your support again.
Can you please return any outstanding books to pre-school before the end of term.
Teddy Bears Picnic
If you have booked to come along to the Teddy Bears Picnic this Friday please remember to bring a packed lunch, wear appropriate clothing and bring your Teddy. We are keeping an eye on the weather forecast and so far its looking OK, so let’s keep our fingers crossed it stays fine for us. If the weather should be rainy please call to see if we are still going. The children normally in on Fridays will continue to do the activities and have a Teddy Bears picnic at pre-school should it be necessary to cancel this event. We are really looking forward to this activity which has been well supported by parents and grandparents.
Our new playhouse has arrived. This has been made and installed by Woodworks Derby Ltd who are based in Draycott Mills. We hope you like it and look forward to our children being able to play in it and use it for lots of different outdoor activities.
Have a Lovely Summer break and see you in September along with lots of new children.
