The children at TiddlyWinks have had a spook-tastic Hallowe’en! We’ve made scary biscuits and even scarier pumpkins! We have enjoyed dressing up as witches, skeletons, ghosts and much more. There were Hallowe’en parties in each room, including lots of dancing, crafting and yummy food! We’d like to say a huge thank you to all our families for bringing a donation on dress-up day. The money raised will go to Crackerjacks Children’s Trust, to help support children with disabilities and their families. Well done, TiddlyWinks!

This month our focus sounds have been ‘s’ and ‘a’. These are the first two sounds of Phase 2 and although our children focus mainly on Phase 1, we like to introduce some letters to give them a head-start!

We like to learn our letters and the sounds they make using of lots of engaging and stimulating activities. This includes the use of sand, glitter, playdoh, paint, pipe-cleaners and lots of games such as I-Spy or Mystery Box! Have a look at some of the fun we’ve been having in the pictures below and see if you can use these letters at home, remembering to use their correct sounds (‘sss’ not ‘suh’ and ‘a’ like in ‘ants’!)

A huge thank you to all of our families who made it to our Macmillan Coffee Morning, raising funds to help make a difference to the lives of people who are living with cancer.

Our staff and children baked up some yummy treats including chocolate muffins, rice crispy cakes, buns, flapjack and a very special glittery cake made by one of our lovely key carers.

If you baked some cakes or stopped by and donated some money we’d like to say an extra special thank you! We have raised over £300! Your money will help to support people whose health, family and jobs have been affected by illness. What a great example to set for our children!
