Newsletter – – November & December 2019
The themes for the above months are:
Winter and Christmas
We will be continuing to look at the changing of the seasons as there are many changes which take place.
Role play area – We are creating an arctic scene. If you have any old hats, gloves, coats or scarves these would be gratefully received to assist with the people standing at the arctic.
Construction area – We will be making a snowman.
Small world area – We are creating a Christmas family house.
We will be creating a number of Christmas crafts including Christmas decorations, Christmas cards and writing letters to Santa.
Academy photography will be here on Thursday 28th November from 9.30am. If your child is not in on this day, you are welcome to bring them to have their photograph taken. If you wish to purchase prints they will be back in time for Christmas.
These premises will close at the end of business on Friday 20th December. Alternative care for 23rd & 24th will be available at Tiddlywinks, 28-30 East Street, Bridgtown, Cannock, WS11 0BU. Telephone 01543 505945. Staff from Butterflies will be at Tiddlywinks so the children will have familiar faces. Butterflies will re-open on Thursday 2nd January 2020.
There is a visit from Santa and Christmas dinner on Friday 13th December. Please see separate letter for full information & return as soon as possible. We would not want your child to miss out!
Christmas Jumper Day – Friday 13th December
We will be wearing our Christmas Jumper on Friday 13th December. It would be great to see everyone in theirs. Staff will also be wearing them.
The weather has now changed but children will continue to have outside play. Please ensure we can keep your child warm and dry by providing them with a named coat, hat, gloves and wellingtons.
All clothing needs to be named, especially coats. Any coat we find which is not named, staff will be writing their names in it to ensure it does not go missing or another parent picks it up by mistake.
Request for items
If you have any Christmas decorations for the tree which you are not using, these would be gratefully received.
