June July Newsletter 2018

June/July Newsletter.
Welcome back to everyone after a lovely half term break to what will be, for some, the last few weeks of their time with us. We have an exciting few weeks ahead for these children, with school visits, a leavers trip and a small ‘Graduation ceremony’ for parents to attend. We are enjoying some lovely weather and have been planting flowers, herbs and fruit and vegetables. We will be having a bean and sunflower growing competition soon so pictures from home would be great!!

If your child currently attends Buttercross on the afternoon of their weekly visit to the infant school this term, we will happily take those children across to the school if you wish. In order for us to do this you must have completed all of their registration forms for school and have handed them in. Children must then be picked up by their parent at the school at the allotted time.


This year our trip for the children who are leaving us in September to go to school will be to Little Jacks Farm in Bottesford. Letters will be going out this week, could you please return the reply slip ASAP.
Please note Pre-school will be open as usual for the younger children.

GRADUATION CEREMONY/PHOTOGRAPHER On Monday 9th July we will be holding a small ‘Graduation Ceremony’ for the children that are leaving. Parents are invited to attend and the children will sing songs and have a small presentation. Letters will be sent out shortly.
At the same time there will be photographer visiting the preschool who will take pictures of the children in a graduation gown and cap if wanted and will also take pictures of any of the children and their siblings for you to purchase. All children are welcome to come in for photographs – for a time slot, see Tracey.

Can you please ensure that all children’s clothes, lunch boxes and bottles are clearly labelled with your child’s name so that we can match property with their rightful owners!

**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.

Can you please ensure that children come to pre-school with sunhats, covered shoulders and sun-cream already applied when the weather is warm. We will reapply sun-cream at lunchtime for those children staying all day.
