We are going to have an "eggsciting" Easter this year. The Pre School Committee, and the school PTA are organising an Easter Egg Hunt around Hyde Heath Common on 25th March from 2.00 to 4.00. There will be an Easter Egg for each paying participant at the end of the hunt, and there will also be refreshments available along with fun pocket money games to have a go at. More details will follow, but save the date. It should be lots of fun!
The weather has been so cold and frosty but it hasn’t stopped the children from going outside to have fun and explore the ice. They found ice on the grass, on a bench and on the trees and leaves. The children made an Ice World with the animals and we talked about what ice is and how ice melts. We placed pots of ice in different parts of the Pre-School room and guessed which one would melt the quickest. The ice on the windowsill came first and the ice in the freezer came last!

Timmy went home with one of the pre-school children this weekend and returned with a Christmas card for all the children:-
Dear Pre-School, Merry Christmas. I hope Father Christmas brings you lots of gifts. I have had lots of fun with you all this term and look forward to visiting some other houses in 2017. Lots of Love Timmy Bear.
We had a visit from Leah and Nazreen from the local Children’s centre today. We enjoyed lots of messy fun with fake snow and playdough making.
