25 May 2018 : Ahoy me hearties we be goin’ a pirating!

25 May 2018 : Ahoy me hearties we be goin’ a pirating!

What an amazing time we have had at Pre-School and Forest Club over the last term! We were invaded by pirates and the children thoroughly immersed themselves in the activities and role play associated with the theme.

We hope you enjoyed our Active Story Making story ” We’re Going On a Treasure Hunt”. We certainly did!

We made pirate ships both inside and outside, made pirate outfits, masks and treasure maps. We searched for treasure and  followed maps to find “X marks the spot”.

Very importantly, we made sure we didn’t catch scurvy by eating lots of fresh fruit – including tasting lemons!

What fun we had ‘me hearties!’

10 April 2018 : All aboard for an adventure by train!

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!

28 April 2018 : WI Spring Fair Pre-Loved Table

28 April 2018 : WI Spring Fair Pre-Loved Table

Are you having a Spring clear out? Well, BS Pre-School will have a pre-loved toys and children’s clothes table at the WI Spring Fair on Saturday 28 April 2018, 10.30am-12.30pm, and we would appreciate any donations of good quality and condition toys or children’s clothes.

If these can be dropped down to Pre-School reception this week and next during school hours (Mon-Weds 9.30-3.30, or Fri 9.30-1pm) that would be very much appreciated!

2 March : Snow Day!

2 March : Snow Day!

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.

28 February : The Big Chill!

28 February : The Big Chill!


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!
