January 2017 Newsletter

January Newsletter.

Welcome back to everyone after what I hope was a wonderful Christmas and New Year! We were excited to hear all about the celebrations that the children had and it seems that all of them were on the ‘Good’ list this year!! A big thank you to all of the children for a wonderful Christmas performance again this year, and to all the family and friends that turned up to watch. We were very proud of all of them all and we raised a fantastic £196.00 for the pre-school.


This term we will be investigating what happens to our animal friends in the Winter, we will look at animals that like the cold weather and where they live. We will be making bug houses to protect the insects that we find in the garden and making sure that the birds are fed through the winter.  We will be using the school wildlife area to support their learning, using investigative resources to help us. We are looking at the changing weather and what we can wear or do to keep us warm and are on ‘flake watch’ hoping to see some snow soon. The children are also making a graph recording the weather every day.  Thank you for all your support with the ‘All about Me’ boxes, the children have been very excited to tell us all about their items in their boxes and we have learnt so much from them, they really have been a valuable resource for planning for the children’s learning and we are making a lovely book filled with all the photos you sent. They will be coming home again this term so we are looking forward to seeing what’s inside!!!

**Allergy/grape advice**

Thanks again for your continued support regarding Nut allergies. To ensure that our children are safe at all times can you please ensure that you do not send in food containing nuts or products that say they may contain nuts. Care must be taken that chocolate spread is not the ‘Nutella’ brand, but one that does not contain nuts.

Can you please ensure that grapes (or similar eg olives) in children’s lunch boxes are sliced vertically so they do not pose a choking risk.
