Forest & Sandridge For Parents

Seedlings Preschool

This Christmas Term we are enjoying learning from different Traditional Fairy Tales. We have had a visit from the Big Bad Wolf after our stories of the Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood.

We have been busy making cakes for Red Riding Hood's Granny. We are having fun reading the story of The Gingerbread Man and decorating our own biscuits and making salt dough Christmas Gingerbread Men.
We are busy practicing our Nativity with the Reception classes, we are very excited to show everyone our wonderful Snowflake dance!

Thank you everyone who kindly donated food for Harvest and also for the shoe boxes we made up and sent to Samaritans Purse. It is so wonderful to know that these kind gifts will be a huge blessing to so many this time of year.
