Spring Newsletter 2014

By News, Newsletter, Therfield Pre-School No Comments

Welcome back

Term dates – Tuesday 7th January – Friday 4th April 2014.

Half term –  Monday 17th – Friday 21st February 2014.

We would especially like to welcome our new starters –
+ Gabriel

As you know we had to say a sad farewell to Rebecca at the end of the Autumn Term, which is really the end of an era with Rebecca having been involved in the initial setting up of the setting, and then returning to us in recent years.

We will however be welcoming a new member to the team shortly, and we are sure you will help us to make him or her feel very welcome.  We will give you more details as soon as possible.

Our sessions run from 9.30 until 12.30 Monday to Friday with an optional lunch club until 1.30 (no need to pre-book lunch).
Our afternoon club for all children will run every Weds from 1.30 – 3 (prompt pick up necessary please), and our owl club for children preparing for schools will resume in the summer term on Monday afternoons.  If you are interested please speak to Tracey or Tina.

Working together:

Following the success of our last ‘Gardening day’ we would like again to invite you to join us, during our Rainbow week (our sponsored wearing colours week – more details to follow), which this year will be the 3rd – 7th March –  to provide, help us to plant, and to care for a variety of spring plants in our garden.

We would also like to develop this further with your help – so if you have a local garden that could do with some tlc, then please speak to Tina and we could join you during a session, for digging, weeding and planting.

Other activities during the spring term include:

Chinese New Year 31st January – we will have a Chinese banquet with the children.
Valentines day 14th February – please join us for a cuddly, friendship based morning.
St David’s 1st March and St Patrick’s day  17th March– if you would like to join us to share related stories, information, cooking activities please speak to Tina.
World Book Day – 6th March – we would like to invite parents/carers to join us to read stories and books throughout the week.
Mothers Day –30th March – the children would like you to return at 12.15 for cake, drink and a surprise.

Easter – our easter party and easter egg hunt to include parents, carers and siblings will be on Friday 4th April.

Thank you to everyone who has already supplied a recipe for the Therfield cookbook – we have some wonderful recipes in the book already.

The recipes can be your own creations/your favourite chef’s creation and can be for starters main course, desserts, drinks etc – it is your cookbook – you decide what goes in it!

You can add your recipe either by uploading  it at (access code a10d1193) or by sending to me.

Please upload or send all recipes to me by the end of October .

The cost of the cookbook is £8  – a bargain for a Christmas gift – Only  70 days and counting to go …. We need  a minimum of 50 recipes and 50 orders for this cookbook to go ahead – so …. Just a few more recipes needed ….

All proceeds from the cookbook will be shared between the school and pre-school.
