The 1st part of term we learnt about recycling ♻️
We re-used various media to make pictures.
We used charcoal crayons to make firework pictures 🎆
We made Autumnal tree pictures using leaf sponges 🍂
We also took various items to the recycling bins at Baffins pond.
We also had a visit from Sarah, a dental nurse who taught us all about the importance of looking after our teeth. We then used recycled plastic bottles to make toothbrush holders and took a teeth brushing chart home! Have you completed your charts?🦷🪥
A very busy few weeks!


For Children In Need we made Pudsey biscuits.

Thank you to the parents who donated money for this great cause.

We are still accepting donations!!

The children used their fingers to make our beautiful poppy for Remembrance Day


As Portsmouth City Council have declared a major incident tomorrow because of storm Ciaran and all local schools are closed, we have decided to keep everyone safe and close tomorrow. We open on Friday as usual.

This term we learnt about Spring, what it means, what happens, what changes we can see 🌱

When you're out & about, ask your child to look for signs of Spring, draw a picture of what they found and bring it in to pre-school.

Have a lovely Easter 🐰


We have been informed by Portsmouth Water that the water is going to be cut off on Thursday 30th March, therefore pre-school will have to close.

Today we were given gifts for Martisor which is an old Romanian tradition celebrated on 1st March. Red-white threads tied into a bow with a small trinklet attached is given to show friendship & respect and worn to bring good luck and good weather.
They also give women flowers 🌷
Thank you!

We had a lovely surprise encounter with these beautiful Harris Hawks called Bow & Kelsey. Their handlers Kerry & Mark told the children all about these magnificent birds who were at the church today to help keep pigeons away whilst the bell tower is having a much needed clean.
