Dear Parents / Carers

Important Updates:
Face Coverings – Thank you to those parents & Grandparents who have been wearing a face covering. Just a polite reminder that we would like to anyone collecting and dropping off to wear a face covering. This is not mandatory but, we really appreciate your help and support.

Gate Buzzer – Please can you only use the Buzzer if you need to fetch your child earlier than the normal pick up time. Staff will be bringing the children out to the gate in a group at finish time 3.15pm / 2.15pm on a Friday.
Half Term – During half term, if you are planning on going to a country which is on the Isolation list, please can you let us know for the NHS Track & Trace. Thank you.
Yellow Lines – Please remember to socially distance and stay at the marked yellow lines. Thank you.

Playhouse Activities This Week – This week we have been busy creating our Autumn tree using the children’s handprint. We’ve been painting our own Autumn trees, baking hedgehog bread rolls. We bake in very small groups to ensure the children have an enriched experience.

Forest School this Week –
This week is all about hedgehogs. We have read Herbie’s Big Adventure and we have been talking about hibernation. We have created our own wooden hedgehog by hammering nails into a wooden hedgehog body. We have made hibernating homes for our cuddly toys and we have been on a conker ‘hedgehog’ treasure hunt.

Playhouse Activities Next Week – Next week we will celebrate Halloween with lots of spooky and fun activities. Your child is very welcome to dress up throughout the week. We will continue making hedgehogs rolls.

Next Week – Sound of the Week – Next week our sound of the Week will be ‘o’. We will use resources from the playhouse as we are not yet able to accept items from home.

AGM – Just a reminder that the Playhouse Committee AGM will be held on Thursday 22nd October from 8-9pm. Even if you’re not thinking about standing as a member please do join the Zoom meeting at: (Meeting ID: 811 238 5202 Passcode: 341607).
We look forward to seeing you there.

Have a lovely weekend!
Kind regards
The Playhouse Team
