Dear Parents and Friends
For the final week of this half term the children will be continuing looking at the topic of princes, princesses, castles and fairytales. Thank you so much for continuing this topic at home and for allowing your children to bring books and items into Pre-school to share with their friends. After the half term we will be concentrating on the topic of Autumn. Should you have any nice Autumnal walks in the half term we would love to see the photographs. Thank you to you all for your continued help and support.

Half Term Closure
Pre-school will be closed from Monday 29th October and will re-open to the children on Tuesday 6th November.

25 Club
Congratulation to our October 25 club winner Bobby Banks.

Thank You
Pre-school would like to say a huge thank you to the parents of Henry Ashworth for the very kind donation of children’s high visibility vests. They are just what we needed. Thank you.

Hand, Foot And Mouth Disease
Please be aware that we have had a case of hand, foot and mouth disease here at Pre-school and also a case at the primary school. The condition is highly contagious before the spots

appear on the child’s skin. If however you do see spots or a rash on your child’s skin please seek medical attention and do not send your child to Pre-school for 24 hours. Thank you.

Snack Of The Week
This week the children will be enjoying a selection of cereals and fruit.
