March 2021 Newsletter
Welcome to the Breaston Pre-School March Newsletter!
Dear Parents/Carers,
The weather is slowly starting to improve as we head towards Spring and Easter, and we hope that everyone is staying safe and well.
Please read on for information about World Book Day tomorrow, INSET Days, Keyworker Consultations, our current fundraisers and how you can help, and see if you can help us set up our new Loose Parts play.
World Book Day - Thursday 4th March
World Book Day is tomorrow. Usually, we would hold a week-long dressing up event to celebrate and promote a love of reading, but this year we have decided to limit it to just tomorrow. We apologise for the late notice. If your child would like to dress up as a favourite book character then we would love to see them, but if you don't have a costume or they just want to dress up in their favourite costume then please do not worry! We ask that costumes do not have props or extra accessories, and sadly we aren't able to ask for the children to bring in their favourite book this time.
More information about World Book Day and online activities can be found on their website here.
 Sponsored Bunny Bounce
Has your child collected any sponsors yet for their bunny bounce? Thank you so much to those who have - we've raised an incredible £265 so far!
 The event will be held from Monday 22nd March at Pre-School and children will be rewarded with a small Easter egg and a certificate for their fundraising efforts!
All monies are to be donated online to our GoFundMe page available here by Friday 19th March please.

Loose Parts
We are setting up a new loose parts play area and need your help! If you have any of the following going spare at home then please consider donating them to us:
  • Wooden Mug Tree
  • Wooden Kitchen Roll Holder
  • Wooden Curtain Rings
  • Large metal bolts, screws, and washers
  • Metal Keys
  • Padlocks
  • Wooden Peg Dolls
  • Milk Bottle Tops
  • Shower Curtain Rings
  • Pandora/jewellery boxes
  • Wooden Egg Cups
  • Wicker Baskets
  • Trinket Trays

Thank you!

Below is an image of some loose parts. This open-ended activity encourages children to develop their imagination, creativity, social, and critical thinking skills as they play with the parts, coming up with their own games, creations, and ways to use the different items together.
 INSET day Thursday 1st April and Keyworker Consultations
We will be closed on Thursday 1st April for an INSET day, and holding Keyworker consultations via telephone appointments in the morning. We will let you know nearer the time how to book. Friday 2nd April is Good Friday so we will be closed then as well.
 
DCFC Signed Shirt Raffle
The raffle for a signed DCFC shirt is still running! At the time of writing, we had only sold 64 tickets, so there's a really good chance that anyone buying a ticket now could be in with a chance of winning!
Please let your friends and family know! We can post the prize so the raffle is open to entrants nationwide.
Just head to bit.ly/dcfcbps to buy your tickets.
