Summer 2017 newsletter

Welcome to the Summer 2017 edition of our newsletter.

People Who Help Us

In nursery we have been learning about people who help us, P.C Sarah from our Neighbourhood Police team visited us in nursery. The children enjoyed talking to Sarah and learning about the controls in the Police Car. Best of all we all had a turn of sitting in the car, the siren was very loud!!

Welcome to our Summer newsletter

Grab yourself a cuppa sit down and enjoy reading our Summer newsletter. With Summer term fast approaching, it will see some of our older children leaving us and going onto School nursery and School reception. It is lovely to see how the children have developed into confident, independent and resilient young children. We will all miss them very much, but would like to wish them all the best as they continue to strive and achieve in their new early years setting.
