Nursery News 30 November 2018

Here are some of the things we have been busy doing this week:  We have had a very busy classroom this week as we have been visited by many Governors, candidates for the Headship Interviews and representatives from the County and Diocese. The children behaved impeccably, as expected, so well done to all of them.


Wishing Tree Thank you for your kind donations of pasta and shaving foam this week. Please check the tree and see if there is anything you would be happy to add to your shopping list, boxes of tissues and wooden spoons would be particularly welcome or anything you find in your cupboards that is out of date flour, pasta, rice etc. as we can use these for activities. It really does make a difference.
