‘What Have We Been Up To?’

December 2017

Welcome to December’s update.

Christmas has once again come around quick this year and we are soon welcoming a new year.  I hope all your festivities preparations are already in full swing and running smoothly. We are in the festive season at Sticky’s with glitter, tinsel, sequins and paint making an appearance here in the pre-school and soon will be brightening your homes as well. We have decorated the Christmas tree and even the garden has been sparkled with a bit of Christmas too.

All the children have been busy making gifts in Santa’s Grotto and festive crafts will be ready to be taken home, just in time to put under and on the Christmas tree. Everyday we have been singing and dancing to songs. Thank you to everyone for their kind words and support by coming and watching Our Christmas Sing-along.

Next week, the last week of term the children are welcomed to wear their Christmas Jumpers and outfits. On Wednesday 20th December we have our Christmas Hot Lunch with crackers and all the trimmings. Thursday 21st December we have our Christmas party for the children who are booked in on that day, therefore packed lunches wont be required again for those children, we are kindly asking for a £1 donation contribution towards the food, which we will buy and provide. Could you let us know whether your child would prefer jam or ham sandwiches- Email or a note in your child’s communication booklet. We understand and appreciate that all children are in on different days and times of the week, that is why our Buddy, the elf, has joined us at Sticky Fingers for the month to make sure everyone has lots of fun, sweets and treats and most importantly sprinkles the magic of Christmas to each and everyone at Sticky Fingers Pre-School.

Coach Jon is continuing with us this term from Dinky Tennis, teaching the children lots of skills such as balancing, coordination, gross motor skills, working together, listening and much more! As a result this will see the children develop by playing sending and receiving games (mastering Dinky Tennis!)
