September News- Welcome back!

September 2, 2017

Dear Parents and Childminders

 

We hope that you have enjoyed a good summer break and that you are ready to come to kindergarten. We will be joined by several new families and let us welcome them into our Willow Tree family.

 

Please welcome our new starters, we have Polly who’s parents are Inga and Richard, Eva who’s parents are Jo and Paul, Sonny who’s parents are Lou and Bob, Jasmin who’s parents are Sarah and Matthew, Constance who’s parents are Vashti and Tom, and Enki who’s parents are Bella and Tom. Also joining us a bit later we will have Alma who’s parents are Emilie and Nick and Luca who’s parents are iulia and Alasdair.

 

I don’t have much news at the beginning of term but to follow up Inga’s note from her email with the parents handbook, we are in need of a volunteer for our Class Rep for this year. This is the lovely job of linking the families with the kindergarten, with an active role in collecting money for staff birthdays and getting presents and helping out with organising parent support for fundraisers.

 

Also another request for any one who is interested in becoming a trustee; meetings are once a month on a Monday evening with additional jobs ongoing. We need the trustees manage the running and sustaining of the kindergarten.

 

Please remember when coming back next week to bring a spare clothes bag, waterproofs, wellies, slippers and all your wonderful stories of summer adventures.

Oats and Beans and Barley Grow

 

Oats and beans and barley grow,
Oats and beans and barley grow,
Do you or I or anyone know how oats and beans and barley grow.

 

First the farmer plants the seeds,
Stands up tall and takes his ease,
Stamps his feet and claps his hands,
And turns around to view his lands.

 

Oats and beans and barley grow,
Oats and beans and barley grow,
Do you or I or anyone know how oats and beans and barley grow.

 

Then the farmer watches the ground,
Watches the sun shine all around,
Stamps his feet and claps his hands,
And turns around to view his lands.

 

Oats and beans and barley grow,
Oats and beans and barley grow,
Do you or I or anyone know how oats and beans and barley grow.

 

 

Your Friends Are My Friends

 

For your friends are my friends and my friends are your friends,

The more we get together the happier we’ll be.

 

There’s …… and ….. and….. and….

The more we get together the happier we’ll be

 

 

Shake Shake the Apple Tree

 

Shake shake the apple tree, apples red and rosy,

Shake shake the apple tree, apples red and rosy,

Some for you, some for me, shake shake the apple tree.

Blow blow the leaves away, windy windy weather
Blow blow the leaves away, windy windy weather,

Blow them here, blow them there, blow blow the leaves away.
