Below you are able to select and download Newsletters from the past academic year.
Welcome back after half term, we hope you all had a lovely week and are excited to be back!
We would like to draw your attention to a few updates and dates for your diaries:
Children in Need
This year Children in Need will be on Friday 15th November. We will be supporting this worthy cause by having the children come dressed in their best spotty clothes or fancy dress! A collection tin will be available for your donations. We would suggest a donation of £1 but of course will be happy to pass on whatever contributions we receive.
The Big Wrap
Once again we would like to thank you for your generosity in donating to the Family Shoe Box Appeal during our Harvest Pre School Praise. The church has received lots of donations that they will be packing up in shoeboxes.
The BIG WRAP to help pack and wrap the shoeboxes will be held on Saturday 16th November from 10am in the Church Hall. Everyone is welcome to come along and help!
This year we are inviting the children to bring in a homemade decoration to add to our Christmas Tree. There are no rules to what it must look like, only that it must be homemade! We would ask that you bring these in by Friday 22nd November as we will be asking the children to decorate the tree with these during the following week. We are looking forward to seeing what you all create!
The Nativity and a visit to Father Christmas’ Grotto
Everyone at Rascals is getting very excited as we finalise our plans for Christmas. We will soon be getting started on our Christmas crafts, reading the Christmas story and starting to practise for our Nativity.
This year the children will be performing their Christmas Nativity on Friday 13th December. This will take place during the Shoppers service at 10.45am. ALL children are invited to take part whatever day they usually attend.
The children will have the opportunity to visit Father Christmas in his Christmas Grotto!!! Each child will have a time slot allocated prior to the event. All we ask is that a parent / carer returns at that time to accompany their child into the grotto to meet the Big Man himself! You are then welcome to take your child home to share your Christmas gift together.
You will receive a letter regarding the Nativity during the next week. Further arrangements for Father Christmas’ Grotto will be given out in the next few weeks, along with any further information.
Christmas Cards and Postbox
In order to do our part towards being environmentally friendly, we would ask that this year the children create a homemade card for all of their friends at Rascals as an alternative to writing cards for each individual. Our Christmas postbox will be available for the children to ‘post’ their creations and then we will assemble these to make a wonderful display that everyone can enjoy. Our postbox will be out from Monday 2nd December and we look forward to sharing these with all the children.
