May 2023 Parents Newsletter

Dear Parents,

We hope you all had a lovely Easter break. We are now creeping into the summer months as we make our way through the summer term. This is always our busiest term.

We have already had our chicks in, which was a lovely treat after Easter. The children enjoyed waiting for the eggs to hatch! Both baby and pre-school room children were able to spend some time with the chicks and learnt about their lifecycle.

We discussed our artist of the term; Picasso. Please take a look at the childrens canvas prints on the pre-school room wall. We discussed shapes, Cubism (in small details!) and colours.

Over the coming week, we will be joining in with the celebrations for the King's coronation. The children can dress up in the colours; red, white and blue all week. We will also be baking to add to our celebrations.

This term we will be planning for our annual sports day, graduation, and pre-school trip. The pre-school children are currently learning about 'People Who Help Us'. From a Baker to Refuse Worker. We have already kicked off the term with a visit from a dentist. The children have participated in activities all week related to teeth! Please ask your child about this as I am sure they will have lots to share. If you are in one of the following professions (see below) and can pop in to talk to the children then please do let us know! **Baker, Fireman, Ice cream van/shop, Optician, Doctor, Postman or Refuse worker**


School readiness

What do we mean by this?

Many of our children will be moving onto a new nursery or infant school reception in September. This can be a daunting time for both parents and children. We have provided a link below which will help you understand what it means to be 'school ready'. For us at Little Cakes Montessori, it is about being independent in feeding, getting dressed, using the toilet, plus being able to leave your carer with confidence and knowing they have the freedom to be themselves. Give them choices, freedom of speech, and listen to them. There are lots of expectations put on a child, however, the most important point for us is that the child is happy.

If you would like a chat with any of our members of staff about this please let us know.

Dates for your diary will be coming out next week which will help you plan for graduation, sports day, the school trip, and any other end-of-term activities. Transition reports will be sent at the end of June for children moving onto reception. Top tips Please ensure all clothing is labelled. This includes all coats, jackets, wellies, shoes, and water bottles. Arrival time - please try and drop off your child by 9.15am to allow them to join in with our circle time activities. This is an important start to our day as we like to discuss the activities the children will be able to take part in. This helps them to plan their work cycle.


Thank you, Alpa & Katie
