Hello everyone,

What very strange times we find ourselves in,  but here we are for the moment and like you we are all adjusting to this new way of living and working for the moment. We are all missing our Pre-School family and friends and look forward to the day that we are back together enjoying our learning together again. I would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for everything that you are doing we really do think that you are amazing !

For the last two weeks we will focus on the story of The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson. It’s a lovely story involving sea-sides and journeys.  Look it up on YouTube or better still share the book if you have this story at home. This will be the last of the home learning ideas provided as the summer holidays will then begin. There are lots of lovely ideas from previous weeks that you can also use to supplement your child’s learning at home. Enjoy your summer holidays and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.


Do look at the bottom of this page as I will always update with new supporting activities , web sites, ideas and of course you have the weekly learning activities,home learning, Mini Mash and Learning Eggs.

In the mean time we need you all to stay safe, healthy and for you to share your strength, calm, laughter and love.

Love from Mrs Ellis, Mrs Clarke & Mrs Roberts.





Pre- school Home Learning

To start the week and new way of working and learning we begin our on line learning.  You will be able to access your child’s learning for the week ahead found on this site (downloadable files – home learning). You can also access learning on the site using your log in details to the website.  There will be a variety of tasks and activities that you can complete throughout the week such as discussions, sharing stories together, adventure activities and lots of  games you can do with your family.

We would love for everyone to keep in touch and we want to see how you are all doing! Our Learning Book programme is a fantastic way to share videos and photos of the activities and all of the things that you and your family have been up to so do remember to share all of your wonderful photographs and videos.

  • Please ensure that uniforms, coats, lunchboxes ( if you could put a label on the outside of the lunchbox that would be most helpful), bags and boots are labelled with your child’s name
  • Please ensure that your child has a change of clothes in their bags just in case of any little accidents and please wash and return any clothing that we have put on at school.
