OUR CATERPILLARS HAVE ARRIVED!
Five very small but very wriggly caterpillars arrived in the post today – they don’t even measure 1cm long yet! We are looking forward to watching them grow and change into Painted Lady butterflies over the coming weeks.
I’ll keep you all updated on their progress so you can share the experience with your child – I think some of them were very surprised that the Postman brought them in a little brown box!

Following last nights School Readiness meeting hosted by Su Brooks from Millfield Primary School I thought it may help you all feel more confident with phonics if I posted a couple of videos which take the mystery out of pure sounds and developing phonics skills. We use the ReadWrite Inc Phonics system which provides an excellent foundation to support your child in learning to read and write.
I will organise some home resource packs with letter sound flash cards to share with your child, so if you would like some, please ask me. Meanwhile, the Oxford Owl website is brilliant for Parents/Carers who want to try activities at home, I can highly recommend it.
Don’t forget we have lots of books to borrow and share in our Honesty Library and most importantly, try to have fun with books with your child!
Many thanks, Krysia

Welcome back to Millfield Pre-School after Half-term! Our topic this term is ‘SUMMER!‘ and we hope to experience lots of seasonal fun in the sunshine!
We have a busy term ahead as our Saplings prepare for their transition to school in September 2019 and we support them with the move to their chosen school. We will be preparing to delight all the Sapling children’s Parents and families at our end of term show and celebration. The PRE-PROM will be on Friday 19th July 2019 – bring your tissues!
The annual sponsored PEDAL PUSH to raise funds for Millfield Pre-School takes place on Tuesday 18th June 2019. If your child is not in the setting that day, we encourage all children to join us – letters are in the folders.

Today we had a visit from Elric at Angel Aquatics and Reptiles, North Walsham with some of their exotic animals to extend our “ANIMALS FROM AROUND THE WORLD” theme! Our Saplings met a Cane Toad, Leopard Gecko, Bearded Dragon, Curly Hair Tarantula, Corn Snake and Royal Python – the children were braver than some of the staff around our unusual visitors.
Many Thanks to Angel Aquatics & Reptiles for taking the time to come out to see us.
