NewsLetter-Funfishers Out of School Club, Nursery & Pre-school

Funfishers Newsletter March 2019

Nursery and Pre-School

This half term we will be exploring health and hygiene, looking at various ways to remain healthy including food, exercise and being happy. This learning will be incorporated into different areas of provision and tailored according to the children’s interests. It will also link into various professions including dentist, doctors, shop assistant and an athlete. The role play area will be transformed into a shop, investigating how much items cost and what we should buy after making our shopping list.


Diddi Dance

From Tuesday 5th March pre-school children will to taking part in Diddi Dance sessions. These will be group sessions using music and props based around the theme of Rock and Roll. Children are encouraged to dress up if they wish to and can bring different costumes from home each week. These sessions will be 45 minutes long from 1.30pm until 2.15pm.

Little Bites Cookery School

We are excited to welcome Little Bites Cookery School to the setting, they are going to provide us with some healthy food items to then prepare for snack whilst discussing the importance of eating healthy and hygiene when preparing food.

Exciting new community development proposal

Independent Councillor Hilary Shephard has proposed an exciting revival of the pavillion within Hull road park.

This building is currently locked up with the shutters are down and is unused, CLLR Hilary wishes to bring it back to life and turn it into a new community café for families to enjoy.

Her proposal includes:

1. A new function room

2. A new Kitchen

3. A new café with inside and outside table and chair area.

4. Upgraded female and male toilets.

5. A baby Changing room

6. An office/meeting room.

This proposal is something that as a community setting we would love to support as we feel it would greatly benefit our families who live within this area.

If you also wish to support this proposal please email cllr.hshepherd@york.gov.uk with any support or comments that you have before the 25th March 2019.
