    World Book Day!

    Posted by Mrs W Chapple
    Don't forget that World Book Day is on Thursday 1st March! Little Jesters can come in dressed as their favourite book character (or in their favourite dressing up outfit!) It would be lovely if the children could also share their favourite book with us - please ensure that all books are CLEARLY NAMED - thank you!

    Sewing!

    Posted by Mrs W Chapple
    After the half term holiday, I would love to begin some simple sewing activities with the children! Sewing is great for developing fine motor coordination and concentration. If you have any odd pieces or old balls of coloured wool then please send them in for us to include in our creations! Thank you!

    G'day!

    Posted by Mrs W Chapple
    During the first week back to school after the holiday (w/c 19/2/18) we will be finding out about life in Australia! If any of you have a boomerang (or two!) hidden away, please could we borrow them for a few days as we would love to share with the children some of the wonderful aboriginal designs and patterns so that they can have a go at creating their own.

    We are taking part in NSPCC Number Day! Your child can come to Little Jesters dressed in a numbers related outfit, or one with a number on it (on the outside!), for a small donation of £1.

    Little Jesters Christmas Crafts

    Posted by Mrs W Chapple
    We need to collect some small glass jars! Can you help us? At Little Jesters, we are beginning to feel a little festive! We would like to explore some new paint techniques whilst making our Christmas Crafts this year and we need some small clear glass jars - the perfect size would be similar to a jar of baby food. We would be grateful if you could save any jars, and ask family and friends to do the same. Please could we ask for jars to be sent in to us by Friday 17th November. Thank you!
