Roundabout Pre-School

Newsletter

January/ February 2018

Hello to all, but a special welcome to all the families of our new children: Andrew, Noah, Isla, Ingrid, Jemima and Seth. The children have all been very grown up when Mummy, Daddy, Nanna or Grandad have dropped them off, and they have already become a real part of life at Roundabout.

Coming up at Roundabout

We have several exciting events coming up over the next few months:

Monday 19th February to Friday 23rd February – Roundabout’s Fundraising Brick Build

Throughout the week all children will take part in a challenge to see how many wooden bricks they can stack on top of each other to make a tower. Prior to the event we will be sending sponsorship forms home with the children – so please get as many sponsors as possible. We would love to raise money to purchase resources for our Maths and construction area as well as giving our book area a bit of a re-vamp. The family who raises the most money will win a Leeds Rhino Rugby shirt (thanks to Jacoby’s mum and grandad for organising and donating the prize)!

Monday 5th to Friday 9th March – Superhero Week

At Roundabout we realise the massive benefits of embracing weapon and superhero play and so we are excited to announce that we will be having our own superhero week! During the week we will be exploring the positive concepts of what it means to be a superhero, for example; helping others, having special powers/talents. Throughout the week we will be creating costumes and props, exploring varied superhero stories and supporting the children to think about what kind of superhero they would like to be. More details to follow.

Occupations Week

We would like to follow Superhero Week with another themed week during the Easter term. The staff team have come up with the idea of organising a week where we explore different jobs/careers. The children often dress up as various professionals within the emergency services or sports people so we feel they would benefit from exploring these ideas further. Please speak to any member of the Roundabout team if you are, or if you know somebody who has an interesting career – and would be willing to come into Roundabout to chat with the children about it. More details to follow.
