We’d love to share an update on our garden.
Get your little athletes ready because we are pleased to confirm that this year’s Sponsored Sports Week will be next week – Monday 26 to Friday 30 June 2017!
There will be lots of traditional sports day activities throughout the week for all the children to participate in, such as Egg and Spoon Race, Obstacle Course, Water Transfer and the ever popular Welly Wanging!
All our participants are winners and everyone will receive a certificate for the activity they join and a medal on the podium too! You should now have had your child’s sponsorship form so get your family and friends to support your little one’s participation and help us to make it a great success again this year!
Our gardening and building project really started to gain momentum today! Watch this space to see how our garden grows!
What a glorious day it was at our last Forest Club of the term – perfect for an Easter Egg Hunt, a spot of ‘whittling’ (with potato peelers!) and toasting many, many Hot Cross Buns over an open fire. Happy Easter everyone!
We are happy to announce that our next fundraiser will be a marvellous Mini Magic Show on Thursday 1 June 2017 at Bishop Sutton Village Hall, doors opening at 9.30am.
We will welcome magician Chris P Tee to entertain us with his marvellous mixture of comedy, magic and slapstick that kids love! This zany show will keep your children fascinated and engaged as they all become involved in making the magic work. And as Chris is a member of The Magic Circle, even the grown-ups will be left wondering how he did it!
So come and join us for magic and music too – and of course lots of delicious refreshments, cakes and treats on sale with all funds going to support our Pre-School and Forest Club.
Tickets are only £4 per child in advance or £5 on the door, and are on sale now from Pre-School – or fill in your request below and we will arrange to get them to you!
