We had some fantastic designs again this year which have now been sent off! Thank you to our parents for coming in to help design the cards with their children, it's lovely to see you all being so creative!
We should receive the cards and mugs back in November ready for you to send out in good time. Rudolph cards has raised £43.80 for Humpty's.
Despite the weather we went ahead with our Scavenger Hunt on Thursday and actually managed to miss the downpours! It was a lovely autumnal morning with the wind blowing the leaves down in every direction. The objects needed to be found were made a little more difficult this year so the parents, as well as the children, had to look high and low to find them all! However, they all did really well and we brought back lots of lovely leaves, conkers and sticks etc. which we will use in different ways to enhance our learning at Pre-school. We have already had some of the sponsor money in which has exceeded £100 but there will be an update when we have our final total. Humpty's would like to say thank you to our parents, their families and friends for supporting us with this event.
During half term Karen sucessfully managed the '3 peak challenge'. In doing so she raised a fantastic total of £332.50 for Humpty dumpty Pre-school. We would like to thank Karen not only for her committment to such a brave challenge but also for donating half of her sponsor money to us. Needless to say it has already been spent! We have ordered a new painting easel, a new screen for book corner and some bright and colourful glitter floor tiles. Thank you Karen and well done!
Humpty Dumpty's Christmas party....a fabulous morning enjoyed by all.
We were very lucky to be entertained by the magnificent Marky Wild, he kept the children mystified by his wonderful magic tricks and parents amused with his quirky one liners. Ending his performance with his beautiful and slightly mesmerizing white rabbit.
The children then enjoyed a wonderful spread of food kindly made by parents.....(there certainly didn't seem like much was left.)
To top it all off Santa also found time in his very busy schedule to pop in to his grotto and say hello to all the children. ( Many thanks go to Councillor Phillip Coote for being Santa and making the children feel so special.)
A very enjoyable evening at Chartham Park golf course.
A delicious Christmas supper followed by some entertaining dancing from staff, parents and other guests!! (Ganglam style!!)
Thanks go to Kerry Webb for arranging the evening, Lorraine Hunt for the initial idea and to all those who came and made it a such a fabulous evening.
A wonderful morning with the children showing us their amazing acting skills,lovely loud voices and beautiful singing which could be heard all the way to the back of the church. Thanks to Ann Morley for her help with microphones and to Celia Esaw who helped the children (and Staff) keep in tune with her excellent piano playing.
A great day at Meridian Hall, East Court run by the East Grinstead Volunteer Services. We held a name the teddy stall (quite popular with the younger members of society!)
Thanks go to Laura Fricker for naming all the teddies and to all those who maned the stall throughout the day.
