We have been busy this week……..

We have been busy this week celebrating Harvest.  We have thoroughly enjoyed using vegetables and fruit to produce colourful paintings this week.  We have made a wonderful, huge display to celebrate the “Happy, Healthy Harvest”. 

This is in conjunction with the supermarket Tesco in Henley-on-Thames. 

Each week Tesco donate surplus food items to Checkendon Pre-School CIO which would otherwise go to waste.  We can accept these donations thanks to the Fareshare Community Food Scheme set up for local charities.

We use the bread, fruit and vegetables to help provide a wider choice for the children at breakfast and snack times. 

Do visit Tesco in Henley so that the children can show you their handiwork.  It’s a competition so you never know………we’re not even sure what the prizes are!!  Hopefully it will be a nice surprise!

Little chefs

This week was the second round of apple and sultana cakes – the children do nearly all of the work themselves with fantastic, delicious results.

Next week is vegetable soup week!  Yum!  Please bring one vegetable that your child would like to put into their soup as well as a suitable container to take it home in.

Next week’s chefs are:  Dexter, Maisie, Sebby, William you need your vegetable next week.

The following week our soup chefs will be:  Jude, Austin, Ava, Clio, Eric – so you need your vegetable the following week.

We’ve made jigsaw puzzles with photocopies of t-shirts, discovered new paths in the woods, used the equipment during P.E, learned the tractor song for harvest, enjoyed watercolour painting and vegetable printing, .

COFFEE MORNING AND CAKE SALE

On TUESDAY 1ST NOVEMBER you are all invited to a ‘Welcome Coffee Morning’ at Checkendon Pre-School.

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome all our new children and families to Pre-School in a relaxed and enjoyable fashion.

There will be yummy cakes to eat and plenty of new friends to make.

Do come along at 9.00am – 10.00am for our coffee morning during which there will be a cake sale to raise funds for Pre-School.

More information will follow but we all hope that many of you will be able to join us.

Thank you for your continuing support of Checkendon Pre-School CIO.  The weeks are flying by and I am happy to report that the children are forming a super group, making friends and really understanding the routine and our funny little ways of doing things here!

We are looking forward to the coming months with this really happy group.

With kind regards,

Nina, Liz, Kelly.
