Fun in the Hygge Hut

Forest School was such a fun day - even with a weather warning, we made a forest inside! We enjoyed soup and a story and lots of fun threading beads in the Hygge Hut. The children are really interested in magnets and we embrace 'In the Moment Planning' here so we followed this up using tinker trays, exploring natural and man made objects. The children discovered objects are different textures, colours, shapes and materials. "Look wool is soft."

Pounds for Pudsey

We would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone that contributed to our fundraising for Children in Need. This year, we decided that all funds raised were to be evenly distributed between BBC Children in Need and our own chosen charity CLIC Sargent for Seth's Journey. We were overwhelmed by the donations this year - just over £300! You are all wonderful - Thank you!

Spikey Hibernates

The children attending Forest School enjoyed making Spikey the Hedgehog a lovely warm, cosy nest for the Winter. We talked about hibernation and even sang a lullaby to get Spikey to sleep through the winter. We will wake Spikey up in the Springtime when the flowers start to grow and the trees blossom.

Schools Evening

A big thank you to all the families that came along to our annual schools event. Many of the local schools accepted our invitation to represent their school so a very big thank you to them. The evening was full of fun and a fantastic opportunity for parents to ask questions to help make that decision!

Christmas Operation

Thank you so much to all our families, friends and staff for contributing to our annual Christmas Operation for the Samaritans. We were overwhelmed to receive a total of 14 boxes! We are so grateful to you all.

National School Meals Week

It's National School Meals Week and we are proud to provide homecooked meals and snacks for the children. We source our ingredients from local suppliers including Dart Fresh Produce and Simmonds Fruit and Vegetables.

Children in Need

Thank you so much to all the children, families, friends and staff for contributing to our bake sale. This year we are raising funds for Children in Need and splitting all proceeds with CLIC Sargent as part of our fundraising for Seth's Journey. The children are invited to wear whatever they wish this week.

Remembrance Day

Kindergarten children enjoyed a workshop in the Hygge Hut to discuss why we wear poppies. We talked about all the things we love about our life and things we enjoy doing. We discussed our favourite food, our homes, our pets and things we love to do with friends and family. Poppies remind us to be grateful and thankful for all the things we love about our life. We also watched the beautiful short CBeebies tribute and talked about how wonderful it is that the poppies are growing in the sunshine.
