Every month, we will be updating our blog with any news, updates and events going on, for all of our families to see and hear about!

We’ve had a busy October with lots of spooky Halloween activities going on, alongside our Halloween party last Friday, which was a big success! Thank you to all the families who joined us!

Take a look at our recent photo albums and Snapshot to see all the October fun for yourselves! If you can’t see your child in the video or photos, let us know and we’ll be sure to have them featuring next month!

Our cake sale will have a Bake Off theme and we will asking the children to choose the winner each day- so when you collect your children, don’t forget to join in with the fun, pick up a slice of cake and ask them to choose their favourite! We would love you all to get involved, so please feel free to join in by bring in your best bakes!

This Tuesday we have Concept Photography coming in between 08:00-15:00.

Tip: Pack a change clothes for the photographs as we all know how quickly children get messy!
