This may seem like a daft question, but is school on tomorrow morning, I seem to have lost track of time. Thanks, Paul๏ฟผ
Words canโ€™t explain the pleasure I had reading this beautiful card and the gifts Iโ€™ve received from a mystery person who did a knock and run today I would like to thank them this has really helped my lockdown blues and canโ€™t wait to get back to see all the children and parents
Is anyone missing a pair of trouser? Kayden came home with a pair of โ€˜F&Fโ€™ grey combats as well as his own! ๐Ÿฅด (I will aim to drop them back to the preschool tomorrow or Thursday.)
Hi there - is the sickness bug doing the rounds? Are many off sick? Is it worth keeping him off tomorrow or not? ###

This week we have been looking at our faces and the differences between us all
Next week we would like to look at our families so if possible we would like the children to bring in a picture of their family that we can keep in their learning story and talk about how families are all different and who is special to us
Thankyou

Do you have a little one starting school in a couple of weeks? ๐Ÿซ
Now is a good time to start getting your children into a good bedtime routine ๐Ÿ˜ด.
When children donโ€™t get enough sleep, it is difficult for them to focus in school. When they have had a good nights sleep they will be
โžก Happier
โžก More alert
โžกMore willing to listen and cooperate.

๐Ÿ•œTo start introducing a routine start with some role play. Get some blankets and cushions to make a bed for their doll or favourite teddy then ask your child what teddy needs to do before bed, if they get stuck you can prompt them. Then start to do it alongside their toy until it becomes second nature ๐Ÿ™‚
