Foundation Stage Weekly Newsletter

Puffins and Penguins Weekly Newsletter 5th April 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

It has been a very Eggciting week!

Puffins and Penguins invited Preston Community Pre School in to class to join them for an Easter Egg Hunt. They were fantastic hosts and great role models using all our school values. We are very proud of them.

On Thursday, FOPPS (PTA) organised an Easter Egg Hunt in the Woodland Camp. We had fun searching for the treats, thank you FOPPS.

Each child will be coming home with a Maths activity pack for the Easter holidays. We have included games and activity sheets but feel free to be as creative as you like. The focus is on addition, subtraction, one more and one less. Do not forget to keep counting backwards 20-0.

We would like to take this opportunity to say how proud we are of all the children for working so hard this term. We appreciate all your support and look forward to starting the summer term on Tuesday 23rd April.  

Happy Easter!

Learn to Swim Sessions

We still have places available on our Learn to Swim sessions. These lessons are aimed at children in Puffins, Penguins and Owls classes.  Sessions will be run by our swimming qualified staff. Lessons are half an hour after school, with a maximum of five pupils per teacher. Two teachers poolside, with Lifeguard training. We are offering 20 places initially on a Wednesday straight after school. We will safely hand over children from the class teacher to the swim teacher. Therefore, there is no need to pick up your child until 4:30pm. However we have a new covered seating area, and you are most welcome to watch your child swim. Dates are Wednesday 1st May to Wednesday 24th July. If these twenty places fill up we will organise and advertise a second day after school. 

Sessions are all bookable online and payable in advance. We want the lessons to be value for money and have decided to trial this at £59 for 12 lessons. Please book via
