2016 – 2017 Photos

Its great to be back after the summer holidays! We celebrated in style the return of our little people and welcomed a few new faces too!




May 2017

Wow! Our teddy bear parachute was a huge success! We are already full of ideas for next years! We raised a massive…… drum roll please!…. £350!!!! That’s a fantastic amount raised!

We would like to say a huge thank you to the church for allowing us to use the church tower and for also offering light refreshments which also contributed to this amazing event! Our brave helpers who were sat at the top of the tower launching teddies for us and our committee members for once again giving up their time to help on the day and organise this event.

As usual Sandy was ready and waiting in teddy triage with bandages and plasters for any injured brave teddies!

Huge thank you to everyone who came and supported our event! Without you we couldn’t do it!




April 2017

Did you have a lovely Easter Half-Term? We did but glad to be back at Preschool! We have had a very exciting and action packed time since being back!

The children love being back outside enjoying our little garden now the weather is getting nicer! We can play all sorts of fun games outside!

Its not everyday you get to see the East Anglian Air Ambulance land beside your preschool! We could see it from our window! It was very exciting for the children and we were even lucky enough to meet the two Rapid Response Paramedics who also responded to the emergency that happened in the village. Huge thanks to these two gentlemen for taking time out to speak to the children.

If that wasn’t exciting enough for the children we had a ‘planned’ special visitor arranged too! A tractor came to visit us and all the children got to have a look inside the tractor and feel like a farmer!



Easter 2017

What a busy Easter we have had! We managed to fit in so many fun things!

The Easter bunny left some big foot prints so we followed them! We found loads a brightly coloured Easter eggs! We decided to collect them all up together and we then shared them once we got back to preschool! We had to keep a look out for Peter Rabbit pictures too and tick those off our special Easter Hunt lists!


After our fun Easter Egg hunt we came back to Preschool for our own little Easter Fun afternoon! We played games, made Easter crafts, decorated homemade cookies (made by our little hands) & we even had cake for everyone including the Mummy’s and Daddy’s to enjoy, after all hunting for eggs is hard work!

Our Easter egg raffle was a huge success! Thank you to everyone once again for your generous donations & support with this event!

That wasn’t all we did! We had a very special visitor too over Easter! Mrs Pipkins!



Christmas 2016

We were very busy making and creating! What do you think of our Christmas tree made from all our little hands?

Our super Christmas raffle was fantastic and many local businesses donated some amazing gifts and vouchers so many thanks to everyone who donated, sold tickets and bought them! Every year the raffle seems to grow and grow!

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without an end of year party! All the children had a lovely time and all got to meet the famous man himself! Yes Santa came to visit! and he bought all the children a little special gift too!



Sadly the company who was supposed to do our Shed and Wendy House let us down. We would Like to say a huge thank you To Davey Sheds for making us our shed and Wendy House the kids love them.
