Fundraising- 16th June 

Holly is going to be running a trail (and hilly) half marathon on Sunday 16th June, we would like to raise money to buy an interactive whiteboard to teach early math and phonics to our children getting ready to go to school. This will help them transition in to year R with the pre knowledge in those areas before they start. What we need to raise money to be able to do this:

Interactive Whiteboard, Computer, Subscription to Twinkle- Estimate £2500. 


The Run- The Hampshire Hoppit Half Marathon- Starts and ends at Kingsclere on the Hampshire/Berkshire border, reaching some of the highest points in Hampshire. Fundraising letter to follow.

Plastic Free Nurseries Surfers Against Sewage Project 

We will be taking party in plastic free nurseries this term, please support us by not packing single use plastic into your child’s lunch box.

To celebrate environment day, we are planning a walk around the block to pick up litter we find on Friday 7th June at 9.30am. Any parents/carers that would like to help will be much appreciated.


Curriculum Summer Term: Health me.

Intent: Healthy habits for a healthy me.
