Interim Newsletter – March 2020


Dear parents/carers,

We would like to draw your attention to a few updates and dates for your diaries:


World Book Day

We will be celebrating World Book Day at Rascals on Thursday 5th March.  All children attending that day are invited to dress up as their favourite book character and to bring along their favourite book to share with us (please ensure books are clearly labelled with the child’s name).


Sport Relief

We will be supporting Sport Relief on Friday 13th March.  We would like to invite the children to come dressed in their sporty clothes and we will be spending the morning taking part in a range of sporting activities.  A donation pot will be available on the morning, we would suggest a donation of £1 but any amount you are able to spare will be gratefully received.


Easter Pre School Praise and Easter Picnic

Our next Pre-School Praise service is on Friday 3rd April at 10.45am our theme will be ‘Easter’.  The service lasts for approximately for 15 minutes and usually involves action songs and prayers that the children have been learning during the half term leading up to the service.  All parents/carers/siblings (even babies!!) are welcome to join us in the church for this happy service.  If your child does not normally attend on a Friday but you would still like to come along you would be very welcome to bring them along to the main hall at 10.30 so that we are able to mark them in and include them in the service.


We will then be holding our Easter picnic in the hall from 11.30am. All children are required to have a parent/carer with them for the picnic but, due to the high number of children on our register at present, we would ask that only one adult attends the picnic per child otherwise the hall will become very overcrowded.  Of course younger siblings are very welcome but we would politely remind you that they will remain your responsibility please.  

All children are invited to bring along a packed lunch/snack which can either be dropped off with them in the morning or brought along when you join them at 11.30am. 


We will be running a cake stall, an Easter Egg Tombola, Adopt a Toy stall and a Lucky Dip. We are asking for donations of small/medium soft toys and easter eggs for our Easter picnic and these will all be very gratefully received.  Most stalls will be priced between 30p - £1, so hopefully there will be something for everyone. Everyone is welcome to join us.  Again, if your child does not normally attend on a Friday but you would like to take part then please feel free to bring them along to the hall at 11.30am to join in the fun. 


Thank you for your continued support.





Just some usual reminders……


Personal details:

Please ensure you inform us immediately of any change of details such as mobile phone numbers or other contact details for parents and your emergency contacts


Medicines in Playgroup

Please be advised that any medical products needed at playgroup, MUST be given to a member of staff for us to store in our medical box on the piano in the Main Hall and paperwork will need to be completed. 



Please, please do not send your child to playgroup if they are unwell. They will not enjoy the morning and it is not fair to the other children or staff. This does not mean the odd sniffle or runny nose!!

If they have suffered from diarrhoea or sickness please keep them at home for at least 48 hours. This also applies to those children who have started a course of antibiotics.


Please always phone or text Rascals mobile number to let us know your child is going to be absent.


Please remember to inform a member of staff if your child has been given medicine prior to attending playgroup such as Calpol as we will need you to sign a form in our emergency folder.


Please remember to tell a member of staff if someone different is collecting your child from playgroup. We will not allow your child to go with anyone unless we have your prior permission AND DETAILS ABOUT THAT PERSON. We operatE a password system for people collecting who we have not met before.
