Claires Court Bulletin
NURSERY AND GIRLS
“Take every chance, drop every fear and always reach for the stars!”
Wow! I cannot believe I am writing my last Bulletin of the year. I know I say it every year but this year really has flown by. My main purpose here is to round up the year (without spoiling our surprises for Thursday!) and also to say thank you.

I know that as the year draws to a close I am writing words similar to those 12 months ago but it is true to say that it has been has been another great year. Our EYFS vision to provide an environment that is Stimulating and safe, Tactile and creative, Active and physical, Real and relevant, enabling our children to Shine as independent, successful STARS seems to have produced just that! Seeing the children practising for our annual Sports Day, which unfortunately had to be cancelled due to very wet grass, on the stage at Christmas in front of a huge audience and everything they have done on a weekly basis shows me how incredible your children are. The children are real stars and deserve a very happy and healthy summer break.
