News and Weekly Newsletter

At Middleton Cheney Pre School, we very much see parents/carers as partners in their child's education. We aim, therefore, to keep you informed with everything that is going on by producing a weekly newsletter.

Well one week to go until half term – we are nearing the end of a very busy term and I am pleased to report that all is well. The children are all settled and making good progress. We are looking forward to next term, which will hopefully, steadily bring about a turn around in the weather, meaning that the children can get out into the fresh air and run off some of that excess energy! At this time of the year, even some of our older, toughest children are reluctant to venture out, even wrapped up in coats and hats, so it will be lovely to think that March will bring some kinder weather which will raise everybody’s spirits, health and wellbeing  - including the staffs!


Last week, the children were absolutely fascinated with Chinese New Year, especially listening to the story, joining in with our Dancing Dragon song, picking up shredded paper with chopsticks (under adult supervision obviously!), and creating their dragon collages. On Thursday, they were also treated to some time with Mary who came in and made Chinese hats with them. A great time was had by all!


As this is the last week before half term, we are going to have a ‘tying up loose ends week’ so we are all ready to start after the break with a clean slate. Some children have various activities to finish as they missed them due to illness, and keyworkers will also have the opportunity to spend time with individual children doing their chosen specific need/interest activities. Supervisory meetings will be taking place between myself and members of staff during the first part of the week. These are principally meetings during which we look at each individual child and discuss their progress and plan their next steps for the following few weeks.


We will continue with PE in which we will be doing kicking (a ball!) and aiming, and our registration language this week will be German so we will be saying “Guten Morgan” everyone!


Lots to look forward to next term – Spring, Mothers Day, name but a few topics we will be looking at in March through to April.


All things Admin and Financial


Lost Property – Can you all please take 5 minutes to look through the lost property we have accumulated since Christmas. We have a veritable collection of hoodies, cardigans, sweatshirts and coats, as well as plastic pots and drink bottles from lunch boxes. Thankyou


Newsletter – There will be no newsletter next week as it is half term




Fundraising News


We need your help!


Middleton Cheney Pre-School ‘Easter Eggstravaganza 2019’


Our biggest fundraiser of the year the ‘Easter Eggstravaganza’ is taking place again on the 30th March 2019!


We are currently looking for sponsorship and/or fantastic raffle prize donations and need your help.


We are fundraising to improve both the inside & outside equipment, as our equipment is in constant need of replacement and updating to ensure the setting is as safe, engaging and as welcoming for our children as it can be. Ensuring they can grow and develop to their full potential.


There are two ways in which you could help-

Donate a raffle prize

Sponsor a stall


In return for we will provide-

• A thank you poster on the stall/raffle prizes naming your organisation and highlighting your support.

• Flyers handed out for your organisation at the event promoting your specific business.

• A mention on our website of your support towards the Pre-School

• In addition we will highlight your support in our widely distributed newsletter, read by our parents and families from across Middleton Cheney and surrounding areas AND your company name/logo will be displayed on our prominent fundraising board in our entrance for 12 months.


Last year, our raffle was a key contributor to raising our funds and this was largely down to the generosity of local businesses. If you are able to donate a raffle prize we would kindly ask that this is available by the middle of March so we can share the prize information as widely as possible in advance of the event.


Thank you very much in advance and we look forward to hearing from you.
