Weekly Bulletin – 11 July 2019

Homerton Weekly Bulletin 11th July 2019 Dear Parents and Carers, We are having a busy and fun end of term with our butterflies being released as they complete their life cycle. We are looking forward to our Summer Celebration on the 17th so please do have that one in your diary and come along if you can. Sadly the end of term sees two members of staff leaving us.  Harriet Riches who leads our Nest provision is having a change of career and hoping to go travelling in the future.  She has been with us for 5 years and done a fantastic job making the Nest into the warm, welcoming and attractive place it is for children today.  She will be very much missed by children and staff. Kelly Wolfe, who is one of our cleaners, is also starting a new job which will fit in better with her family.  She does a great job cleaning up after us all at the end of the day and we wish her and her family well in the future. We will be looking for a new cleaner so if anyone knows of anyone who would be interested in this job it is 4.30-7.30 daily please do come and see me or Roy. Our plant sale raised a fantastic £96.00 which we will put towards planting projects with the children in the coming year…. Thank you.

Weekly Bulletin – 4 July 2019

Dear Parents and Carers, We have been enjoying the really wonderful weather here at Homerton this with lots of water play outside and watching our caterpillars in the class turning into chrysalis.  Those children who visited Morley all seem to have had a very positive time there and everyone generally seems is very enthusiastic about their next schools.  The Nest children coming up to the Nursery in September have also been visiting their new classes and getting to know their class staff. An exciting event for the future is that the park next door to us is to be redone.  We have been asked to contribute ideas for what parents and children would like to have put in it.  If you have any suggestions for the park please could you come and see me, or drop me an email.  Chloe Brown (mother of Severn in East and Rafferty in the Nest), is also involved in the project and you could speak to her, or email her with ideas too.  Her email is chloecurwenbrown@gmail.com We are looking forward to our Summer Celebration on the 17th so please do have that one in your diary and come along if you can.
