Head's Words Summer Term Week 12

I know that as the year draws to a close I am writing words similar to those 12 months ago but it is true to say that it has been has been another great year. Our EYFS vision to provide an environment that is Stimulating and safe, Tactile and creative, Active and physical, Real and relevant, enabling our children to Shine as independent, successful STARS seems to have produced just that! Seeing the children practising for our annual Sports Day, which unfortunately had to be cancelled due to very wet grass, on the stage at Christmas in front of a huge audience and everything they have done on a weekly basis shows me how incredible your children are. The children are real stars and deserve a very happy and healthy summer break.

With 26 new children visiting the Transition and Nursery classes it is a busy time and we have to say that the existing children have shown great warmth and kindness in welcoming them. The new children are lovely and we look forward to them joining us in September. I am still seeing prospective parents so that the number of new children in September might be even greater! A big thank you goes to you for your wonderful recommendations and the very kind words which many of you have written to us recently. The Nursery children who are transferring to Transition in September have had introductory sessions and have really enjoyed their experiences so the staff are all looking forward to their classes in the Autumn term.

I hope you have noticed the lovely wooden table, bench and stools on the upper lawn by the Nursery entrance. The PTA have once again shown their generosity so very many thanks go to them for all their hard work in raising funds from which your children benefit.

As this is the last Bulletin for this academic year all that remains is for me to wish all the children, parents and my staff a well-deserved happy holiday and for those children moving on to their Reception classes a wonderful life ahead.

Important Dates

Friday 15th July is the end of term and our Nursery Department (nursery classes and Transition) “Fun Morning” to which all children are invited, whether they attend on a Friday or not. We are planning lots of water play outside and the children are likely to get very wet so please provide swimwear, or a complete change of clothing, and a towel. Please remember to provide sunhats and cover your children in sun cream before they come in.

Thursday 8th September the Autumn term commences and we look forward to welcoming you for the new academic year.
