What an amazing Nativity on Friday! Thank you all for coming, it was great to see you there. Mary and Joseph were incredible, the Inn Keeper a star in the making and the other members of the cast were all wonderful.
This week, we will be making your Christmas surprises, so you'll just have to wait until your child brings them home to find out what they've made, but rest assured, they'll be plenty of glitter and glue to wash off!
Don't forget it's the Pre-Schools Christmas party on Thursday (for both settings) which will be held at Cheapside village hall. All the details can be found in your Christmas bulletin, so please check to make sure you know the timings and requirements for the day.
A big THANK YOU, to the Mum's of the FOPS. for running a cake stall at the Cheapside village fayre on Saturday. It was great to see so many of you at the event, which was a great success.
We break up on Friday 20th Dec. at the usual time and return on Monday 6th January.
Merry Christmas to you all and a happy New Year. See you all in 2014 for more fun and laughter!
We hope you enjoyed the Nativity? Your children were amazing! Well done, everyone!
This week we will be doing some Christmas cooking and finishing off our Christmas craft surprises!

With the Nativity fast approaching, this week at Cheapside, we will be continuing to make our wonderful costumes. They have all been created by the children (with a little assistance) so some artistic license has been used! The first practice on Friday went very well, with all the children in fine voice and walking on at the correct moment, so fingers crossed, by Friday it will be amazing!
Mrs Clarke is coming in to bake mini chocolate Christmas cakes with the children during the week, so we hope you enjoy them.
We will also be creating a little surprise for the children to give to you for Christmas, but we won't tell, you'll have to wait and see!
Remember, there is no lunch club at Cheapside on Friday and all the children need to be collected at 11.30.
See you at the Nativity.
The tree will be up, all our tinsel will be twinkling and the lights sparkling.
As the Nativity is rapidly approaching, we will be starting to make some of the costumes for the cats, mice and camels. The stars will be busy making their hats and we might even start to practice some of the songs!
