October 2010 Update

Our new term is well underway now and what a busy September we have had. Our new children have all settled into their new routine and enjoy spending time with their new friends. We have had an exciting visit from the donkeys from the Donkey Sanctuary at Sidmouth. The reception class from Shepton School joined us and the chidren were able to touch and groom the donkeys and all sat on to have their photo taken!

As the Sanctuary do not charge to visit, the pre-school and school parents contributed to the event by making donations and we have been able to adopt a donkey at the sanctuary between us. We look forward to receiving news from Sidmouth about our adoption!

We continue to have our weekly visit from Fr. Geoff Wade armed with a story book, which the children always enjoy and the older children have had their first visit to the mobile library bus. Fund raising has already started with our Bags2School collection and if anyone has any unwanted items of clothing, shoes, bags, bedding or curtains please drop them off at the village hall by 6th October. We will be running a holiday club during the October half term break on Monday,Tuesday and Wendesday from 9am - 3pm. Children from Pre-school age up to the age of 8 will be welcome and this club will be run by the Pre-school staff. Contact us for more details. Advance Notice our popular Crafty Christmas morning will be happening again this year on 27th November, watch out for posters.

Please note our new TODDLER GROUP time and day, now Thursday morning at 9.15am and we are now open for All Day Sessions on Monday , Tuesday and Wednesday every week.

August 2010 Update

Holiday time is here which means a six week break for the Pre-School and Toddlers and before we know it, it will be 1st September and new term will begin again. We have had a very exciting year which included celebrating our excellent OFSTED report.

Much needed fund raising has continued to keep us up and running with the most recent events making a profit of £450 for the summer Sunday and £160 from the Bags2School. Many thanks to all involved in these events.

We continued to have a very busy July with the children enjoying our book themes. Postman Pat, Peter Rabbit and Fireman Sam all favourites. This concluded with a visit to Martock firestation where great fun was had by all as usual. Thanks to the part time firemen who gave up their free time to show us around. Term finished on 21st July with our leavers party with an Indian theme, all the staff and children dressed up for the occasion and fun was had by all. This is always a very happy occasion for the children, but the parents and staff seem to get a bit emotional, when the children leave and move on to School.

We are delighted to say they are all ready for their next step in their education and wish them all well. We hope that you all enjoy the summer and if you know anyone who is looking for a toddler group, -3s group or pre-school please do not hesitate to put them in touch.

July 2010 Update

The last half term of the year is well under way. The Pirate Day was a great success, all staff and children dressed up in pirate costumes and all got involved in the activities on the Pirate Bus. The children were able to make Pirate Treasure Chests, mini pirates, necklaces and Pirate Hats. We all took part in other adventures back in the village hall including walking the plank, which was definitely a favourite.

Our recent theme has been the story of the Gruffalo and all the creatures the mouse meets on his adventures in the woods. The children have enjoyed making snakes and mice and having pretend adventures in the woods. Summer Sports Day was great fun, the children ran their races really well and enjoyed obstacle races and putting balls into pots.

There was lots of fun and games after the sports on a beautiful June afternoon and profits from the day will go to purchasing new toys and equipment for the pre-school. Thanks to all who helped in anyway to make the day such a success. Over £450 was raised during this event. Well done one and all!

Good luck to all the children leaving us to go to school in September and we will see the others back ready to go again in September too. Places available for September in the -3's group and the Pre-school. Please contact us on the above number for further details.
