Brunswick Mail 10/11/2017

Dear Parents

Friends of Brunswick

Pumpkin Party

We are looking forward to seeing many of you at the Pumpkin Party tomorrow from 3-5. The party is in The Wild Place. Once you have parked, follow the path and signs straight along the path for about 50m, and it is through a gate on your right hand side. Please arrive promptly.

A few quick reminders. 

  • Please remember to wrap up warm, with waterproofs, and to bring torches as it will become very dark during the party.
  • You will need money for the car park and there will be a ‘Guess the number of sweets in the jar’ for 50p a guess.
  • Please make sure that your “bring and share” food is clearly labelled with ingredients (no nuts please). This food can be delivered to the cabin upon arrival at the party.
  • Mrs Wilks will be telling a story towards the end of the party for which she has asked if parents can provide their children with a small torch to be used during this.
  • If you are an expert pumpkin carver and have a favourite scooping spoon, please feel free to bring this. While we will have a number of knives and spoons we will need to share.
  • To reiterate our email from last week, please make sure that you remain responsible for your own children/party at all times. The Wild Place is partially fenced in but not entirely.
  • And finally, any volunteers to help with clearing away from 5-6 would be very welcome. Please contact or just stay and help.

Christmas Puddings

We are delighted to let you know that we will be selling delicious Christmas puddings and sauces from the suppliers of Fortnum and Mason. Plum, chocolate and sticky toffee puddings as well as chocolate and toffee sauces will be on sale from after school on Monday 13th and during the next couple of weeks. These make excellent Christmas presents. All proceeds go to the nursery.


Book Bags

We have now started Small Group Time with the children and part of this involves “share a story” where the children can take home a book.  Please can we remind you that all the children need a book bag.  This does not need to be one purchased from Brunswick but a fabric bag, big enough to hold a large book, with their name on.  If the children do not have a book bag they will not be able to take a book home. Please check with your child’s Keyworker what day they need to bring their book bags in.

Large box request

Mrs Young would like a large (fridge freezer size!) box if anybody has one at home or work they could donate.  Many thanks.
