News and Events

Every day is a learning day!

31st March 2017

We have recently developed a new web page which contains lots of helpful leaflets, web links and information for parents on how to support your child at home. We hope that you find this information useful. You can also access our “Question of the Week” on our self-evaluation board in reception. This week we are focusing on Transitions. Please give us your feedback so that we can continue to improve.

Comic Relief

31st March 2017

A HUGE thank you to everyone for your extremely kind and generous donations. We raised a whopping £475.35. Thank you also for attending our sponsored wellie waddle and assault course! We had a great turn out and really enjoyed the challenge.

Drive Carefully

03rd March 2017

Please remember to drive carefully in our car park. It can get very busy at times. The speed limit is 5 miles per hour and we also expect everyone to reverse park. We have had a number of parental complaints about poor and unsafe driving. We will not continue to tolerate this as the health and safety of our children, parents and staff is being put at risk. Thank you.

Parent Helpers

03rd March 2017

We are always looking for parent helpers. If you would like to come in and tell a story, accompany us on a walk or share some skills, please talk to your room supervisor. You are ALWAYS MORE than welcome.

Tempest Photographer

03rd March 2017

We have booked a photographer from Tempest to come to nursery on 30th and 31st March 2017. This will be an opportunity for your children to have their photographs professionally taken. You will be able to purchase these if you wish through their sale or return option. Tempest have an excellent reputation and are the main photographer used in most schools. More information will be sent home in due course.

Snack Menu Consultation

03rd March 2017

We are in the process of reviewing our snack menu. We would like your feedback in telling us what your child likes and doesn’t like to eat. Please see our consultation board and questionnaires in reception. We would very much appreciate if you could help us with this review. We will be asking staff and children for their feedback too.

KingsWellies Lending Library

We believe at KingsWellies, that books are the window to the world! Outside each playroom, we have a lending library. PLEASE choose a book each week to share at home with your child.

Rumpole and Ziggy have passed their Therapets assessment so will be heading out soon to the hospital, university and old folk’s homes to cheer lots of people up! We will keep you posted.

Our Wellie Beans will be working towards achieving their KingsWellies Life Skills Awards. Our younger children will work on developing the Pink Award and our older children will be working their way through the Red Award. Please help us to complete these at home too! Send in photos of your child completing each important skill. Already we have completed, “I know what to do in a fire drill” and “I have helped a friend!”
