Wellie Dogs – Therapets

13th January 2017

Rumpole and Ziggy have applied to become Therapets! I am hoping that they will be registered before our Random Acts of Kindness Day so that they will be able to visit our local old folk’s home with some of our children. Fingers crossed that they will pass their assessments!

Many thanks also for your very kind donations to Mission Christmas. This year, a record number of children in the local area benefited from your generosity.

We will be studying Diwali – Festival of Lights, over the next few weeks. If you would like to come in to speak to the children about how you or your family celebrate Diwali, please let us know.

Macmillan Bake Sale and Pink Week

31st October 2016

Many thanks to everyone who recently supported our Macmillan bake sale where we raised a fantastic £65.29 for Macmillan Cancer Support. We received a lovely letter saying that our donation could pay for a Macmillan Grant that enables a person with cancer to purchase a microwave oven. This will make the preparation of food easier when they are experiencing fatigue and tiredness due to their gruelling treatment. Well done everyone!

Loose Parts Play

31st October 2016

A huge thank you to everyone who has handed in materials for our loose parts play. We are still building up our collection. A special thank you goes to Craig Danahar and his mum Angela who donated their trampoline. The children will have lots of fun building and designing with the 100 springs, the poles and the legs! We will also be using the tarpaulin and the nets to build very exciting dens! Thanks Craig!

Interactive Learning Diary and Learning Journey Folder

30th September 2016

If you would like to sign up to view your child’s digital Interactive Learning Diary (ILD), please see Aimee or Suzanne who will provide you with your own unique registration code. This excellent tool assists us with the recording and planning of your child’s educational development. We have had excellent feedback from parents who are able to access and observe their child’s learning whilst at nursery. You can also send in your own observations of your child’s activities from home.

Macmillan Big Coffee Morning

30th September 2016

The world’s biggest coffee morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. Last year alone, £25 million was raised and this year they aim to raise even more. In order to support this very worthwhile charity event, the KingsWellies gang will spend next week baking and selling to our parents and friends. All proceeds will go directly to Macmillan. Many thanks for your support.
