All of us at Bishop Sutton Pre-School, staff and parent committee, would like to extend an enormous thank you to Williams & Harris Chartered Tax Advisors of Bishop Sutton, who have very generously taken on the auditing of our annual accounts – and with a special thank you to Amy who looked after us so well!
As a charity we are reliant on fund-raising and donations to help keep our Pre-School and Forest Club open, so this kind donation of services is so very welcome to help us focus our fundraising profits on resources and equipment for the children.
Thank you so very much Williams & Harris!
We are still collecting donations for our pre-loved toys and children’s clothes stall at the WI Spring Fair this Saturday 28 April at The Link (1030am-1230pm). If you have anything suitable please do drop it into the box at the Pre-School reception area before 1pm on Friday please!
Also, don’t forget to remind your children to bring along their finest Spring picture on the day so that they can enter the Art Competition – there are some prizes for the best ones!
Thanks for your support and we hope to see you there!
What a fabulous time we had last term at Bishop Sutton Pre-School and Forest Club, learning all about ‘Journeys’.
Our Active Story Making tale, ‘Little Old Engine Ossie Nock’ went down a storm. We hope you had a chance to share this lovely rhythmic story with your little one!
No-one could have failed to notice the little blue train that took up residence in the school room last term! The children played with it beautifully, sharing and taking turns to drive or be a passenger.
The ticket office was also kept extremely busy, as the children used lots of imaginative play scenarios to go on various journeys. Here are some pictures of our adventures by train!
Due to the severe weather warnings by the Met Office and local schools closing, we have made the early decision to close Pre-School tomorrow – Friday 2nd March.
Please stay safe, keep warm and enjoy the snow – and we look forward to seeing you all next week ⛄❄
From all at Bishop Sutton Pre-School.
UPDATED THURSDAY 1 MARCH : URGENT!
School’s Out! Sorry for the late notice but a Red Warning has just been issue for the area so there is NO FOREST SCHOOL today as Bishop Sutton Primary School has been closed. Enjoy and stay warm and safe everyone!
Wow! What a chilly snap we are having!
Just a few notes regarding the weather forecast over the next couple of days.
At Bishop Sutton Pre-School we play outside every day. We encourage the children to explore the outside environment and this includes whatever the weather brings. Over the last few days the children have been exploring ice and frozen water, rescuing trapped toy animals from their impending doom! Watching or making the ice melt and testing the temperature of the icy water.
With snow forecast (fingers crossed!) We are certainly planning to enjoy it, so please make sure you wrap up warmly. Hats, gloves and a warm coat are essential. In the event of heavy snowfall/impassable roads resulting in Pre-School closure, we will endeavour to contact you before you set out. A general rule of thumb, if Bishop Sutton Primary School is closed, then we will be too.
At Forest Club, the entire session is held outdoors. Here are a few things to remember
- Tights/leggings/long johns/thermals or pyjama bottoms underneath trousers and 2 pairs of socks.
- Several layers on top plus a warm coat
- Hat, gloves, wellies or snow boots.
We supply our Forest Club outfits as an extra but please note, they only add a thin waterproof layer.
Thanks everyone! Let’s do this!
