Sparsholt June Newsletter 2017
Wow.. how are we half way through the year already!
May gave us some lovely warm weather allowing us to get the paddling pool out. The babies and Bee Garden had a great time splashing around up here in the garden, while Top Conker built their own diving pool and had fun running through the sprinkler. But, we did enjoy a very cheeky rainy day, in which Top Conker had a fantastic time creating a mud slide in the woods.
Our nursery topic throughout June will see all the children travelling around the world visiting lots of countries and sampling food... be prepared for some dress up days! Wednesday 14th June is Pirate dress up day and Tuesday 27th June is Hawaii dress up day. We can’t wait!
Summertime is officially here which means we have our wonderful summer events! We are starting with the Dads breakfast on Saturday 10th June 2017 from 10-12pm. All dads and children are welcome to a morning of bacon sandwiches and games.
Wednesday 12th July is Sports Day from 3-4pm... please donate scones on the day ready for our cream tea. We ask that all parents come to this event and no high tea will be served that evening.
Friday 21st July is Celebration Day from 1-4pm… please join us for an end of term celebration and bring a picnic. We will have a drumming workshop, face painting and ice creams. Everyone is welcome!
NEW STAFF… We would like to officially welcome 3 new staff into Top Conker! Tracy has over 20 years of experience working in schools and loves being outside learning with the children in the environment. She will work a job share with Sophie who has previously worked in schools and is Montessori trained. Also, we welcome (another) Amy at the start of July. Amy has just completed her BA Hons in early years and can’t wait to put all her knowledge into practice!
PLEASE can you make sure you pack appropriate spare clothes every day in your child’s bag. We have run out of all our spares due to parents not packing enough clothes and then not returning them to us.
To all Top Conker parents, as we said in the last newsletter, please can you email Lisa and Sarah your official last day with us before the start of July so we can prepare the final invoices. The last day any child from Top Conker who is going to school can be with us is 31st August 2017.
The Sparsholt Village Fete will be held on Saturday 24th June from 1-4pm in the heart of our beautiful village. Come along and enjoy a fun filled afternoon with something for everyone. There will be stalls to stock up on gifts, plants, cakes and more. Try your luck at the raffle, bottle tombola, the coconut shy, cricket game or ’splat the rat’. Enjoy afternoon tea, lunch from the BBQ, a Pimm’s or a beer while you listen to the Jazz band and watch the school country dancing display. Browse the books at the book stall and admire the classic car display. Children will love the rides, pond dipping and circus skills activities. Admission to the fete is £2 for adults and free for children.
Have a fabulously sunny June everyone!
Lisa and the team at Sparsholt
