Theme of the month: Mini Beasts and Giant Beasts

Mini beasts are a firm favorite in early year’s settings. After getting outdoors on a mini beast hunt these fun crafts is great ways to extend children’s learning about the topic and give them a chance for some creative expression. Just a few different resources including paper plates, paper bowls, cardboard tubes, wiggly eyes, pipe cleaners, glue, paint and colored paper can be used to make a variety of lovable critters.

Dates for the diary:

4th – Over 2 coffee morning (Pear Tree Café)

5th - Japanese children’s day

16th - Ramadan starts

16th - Dress up like a mini beast

19th - Royal wedding

Dress like a mini beast!

On the 16th of May we will have a dress up day where you can be as creative as you want to be. You can make your child’s own mini beast costume if you choose to. It is going to be so much fun!

National Smile Month 14 May-14 June 2018

In a nutshell, National Smile Month is the UK’s largest and longest-running campaign to promote good oral health.

Together, with thousands of individuals and organizations, National Smile Month highlights three key messages, all of which go a long way in helping us develop and maintain a healthy mouth.

In 2018, the campaign will take place between 14 May and 14 June, and will encourage all dental and health professionals, schools, colleges and workplaces – in fact anyone with an interest in good oral healthcare, to join in and help us educate, motivate and communicate positive oral health messages and improves the quality of smiles all around the UK.

At Zeeba we will be focusing on teaching the children how to brush their teeth correctly and we would really appreciate your support in this. There are some lovely toothbrush kits out there for children, even babies so please follow the links below if you are interested in buying a kit for your little one.
