Parents please check your emails and/or Tapestry for details of Stay and Play, The Brindley visit,Party day and last day of term. Thank you.


Unfortunately we are cancelling our Library visit on Wednesday 14th December 2022 - the extremely cold weather makes the paths treacherous to walk on. Instead we would like our parents to join us in Nursery from 8:50- 9:30am for breakfast and a Christmas Story.
We hope to rearrange our Library visit in the New Year.

Today we marked the beginning of Advent with a Christmas Craft Morning. It was lovely to have our parents join us for a wonderful morning. We made mini chocolate houses, melted snowman cakes, reindeer food, a Rudolf tree decoration and wrote our letters to Santa.
We finished the morning off with a hot chocolate and a gingerbread man.
Our children have been learning to sing and sign 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' - so we performed it for our parents.
Thank you to all of our parents for joining us. πŸŽ„πŸŽ…β›„β­

We love to support our families at The Brow. After a parent told us today that her little boy is nervous about visiting the dentist, we set up an activity to help.
Cleaning crocodile teeth and trying to see if we can open our mouths as wide as the crocodiles can!!
We will revisit this activity over the next few weeks - fingers crossed we work our magic!!


This week as an additional Traditional Tale we are reading The Elves and the Shoemaker.
Yesterday in our maths focus we paired shoes and found the ones belonging to a friend - responding to a two part instruction!!
Today the children will help the Elves sew before the Shoemaker wakes up!! πŸ„πŸ‘ πŸ‘ŸπŸ‘ž


Pre School parents - just a polite reminder to join us on Thursday 1st December from 9:00-11:00am, for a morning of Christmas Crafts, seasonal hot chocolate and a performance of rhymes.
We would love for you to join your child to start the beginning of Advent. πŸŽ„πŸŽ…β›„β­
Even if it isn't your child's normal day, we would still like you and your child to be there. ❀️

Puddle Time. β˜”

Class N had a lovely time splashing in the puddles!!!


Our Makaton Training happened a day earlier than planned.
The children were amazing - Cathy taught us lots of signs and they were able to respond to the adults by signing. When we have practiced a little we will video the children so that you can see them in action. What stars they are! ⭐


Just a polite reminder that it's individual photographs tomorrow. The children will need to wear uniform and their smile!! πŸ™‚
