Scallywags Playgroup Newsletter - June 2019

Sponsored Walk

Thank you to everyone who has brought in sponsor money from our welly walk and BBQ. We have raised a massive £525.50 With all of your amazing support from the Christmas Fayre and the welly walk we have raised the money we needed for the new heating system. This is now installed and has made a great improvement to the feeling of the building.

On Wednesday 15th May we were inspected by Ofsted. We are pleased to inform you that we received the rating ‘Good’ in all areas. A copy of the inspection report is now on our parent notice board and should shortly be on the Ofsted website.


Sept 2019

If you haven’t already, please let us know what days you require for your child in September. If you work 16 hours or more you may be entitled to 30hours free childcare. This gives you 4 and a half days childcare at Scallywags. To see if you may be entitled go to. get the 30hours for September we will need the code before we break for the summer.


Scallywags Toys

If your child brings home any toys that do not belong to them please can you return them to us. We have found that a lot of our small toys (that fit in pockets) are going missing and they are expensive to keep replacing. Thank you for your co-operation.


Summer Sun

As hopefully the weather will continue to get warmer as we move into the last part of the Summer term, please can you make sure your child brings a hat with them. Also, it is our policy that we can only administer sun cream if you bring some in with your child’s name clearly labelled on it.

This will take place on Friday 19th July. 9 am -11am End of Year Party with Rooby Doo (kids only) 11am – 12 am Graduation Ceremony. We close after the graduation for the Summer break and re-open on Tuesday 3rd September

Our last half term before we break up for the Summer is going to be a very busy one for the staff and children at Scallywags. Over the next seven weeks our theme is going to be ‘Under the Sea’ and we will be using the following books:- Rainbow Fish, Tiddler, Commotion in the Ocean, Sharing a Shell, Smiley Shark and the Snail and the Whale. We will also be having some resident goldfish for the children to care for. Alongside all our fun activities and games we will also be getting ready for our end of year party and graduation for our class of 2019.
