​Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope that you have had a good week. We had a visit from Mill Cottage Farm on Tuesday (25 June) which the children really enjoyed.  The weather was good and they were able to go in the pens with the animals and spend some time stroking and brushing them.  For some of our children this was the first time that they have seen these animals so it was an extra special day for them.       

Stories we are enjoying this week: 

We read various books including 'Shoo!' by Michael Rosen in the three/four-year room (AM story)    
'Scarecrow's Secret' by Heather Amery and Stephen Cartwright (PM story) Our small world play has been a farm this week.  
'Noisy Farm' by Rod Campbell in the two-year room. We use a story sack with props for this story

Just for fun:  Why not give your child a paint brush, any size, and some water and let them 'paint' outside.  You can talk about the water disappearing, does your child know why?  Do they know it is called evaporating?  Can they talk to you about their mark making?  Please remember water safety and do not leave young children unsupervised around water.  

Please note that we will be CLOSED on Thursday 04 July as the hall is being used as a polling station.

Have a lovely week
