Friends of Ducklings

The date for our next meeting is Tuesday 13th February. We meet in The Rose and Crown in Writtle at 8pm. We have a small committee ready to begin organising our next event, which is our Family Day on Sunday 12th May. We would love more parents to come along and join us. Please come and see me if you require further information.

Mummy’s morning

Please come and join us for Mummy’s morning on Friday 8th March 9-10am. This is for all children and their Mummies whether or not your child attends a Friday session.  You will be joining your child in a fun activity, which will then be followed with cakes and refreshments. Please let us know if you are able to come?

Easter Holiday Club

Mrs Park and the staff will be running an Easter Holiday club again this year. This will be the week of Monday 8th – Friday 12th April, 9am-3pm. The cost is £30 a day and we are now taking bookings. Please pass this information onto friends who have children in the school and may want to use this facility.

Writtle Library Visits

The library has very kindly offered to open on two Thursday mornings for us to take the children for visits. This will be a rhyme and story time followed by some time exploring the library. The dates are 29th February and 7th March (9.30-10.30) and we will take 14 children on each visit. We will be sending consent forms home before half term for the children concerned. Please return these promptly.
