July News!

As we reach the end of the Summer Term, I am reminded of how much has happened this year.  Our topics of Occupations, the Seasons and Going to School have all been overwhelmingly embraced by the children.  We have watched eggs hatch into chicks and visited the Armed Forces!

We would like to wish all those children beginning their next adventure at First School, an enormous good luck and goodbye – we will miss you all.

Sports Day

We are holding our yearly sports day as normal.  It will be held at the Witchampton Cricket Pitch on Tuesday 24th July.  Please arrive by 10am.

Please remember to bring food donations with you on the day – no ingredients containing nuts please.

There is a sheet on the door for you to complete with your chosen donation.

Army Day Trip

We would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to the soldiers from Blandford Camp who made our trip so exciting – the children were thrilled with all that they did.  We would like to say an extra special thank you to Kat Metcalfe who helped organise this very popular trip.



We are very excited to announce that from September, we will be moving to a program called Tapestry.  This is an online Journal system that records the progress you child makes with us.  It is an interactive program, where parents can see what their child has been learning at Little Owls, as well as being able to communicate directly with us.

Many pre-schools and nurseries in the area currently use this system, and it has proved very successful in their settings.  We will be completing the enrolment process over the next couple of weeks ready for the new term in September.  You will be able to see how Tapestry work in depth at the Parent Talk in September.
