Ashtead Pre-Prep Portal

What a wonderful summer holiday we have had over the past few weeks! Welcome back to school, with the sun still shining for the new academic year. If you have had an opportunity to look at the calendar you will have seen that this term promises to be full of exciting and varied experiences for the children.  This is all in addition to the wide ranging personalised curriculum that has been enthusiastically planned by the teachers. I would also like to offer a very warm welcome to all the new families who have joined Ashtead Pre-Prep this term.

During the holidays, Rising Reception has had a complete makeover. Mrs Rose and her team have had great fun getting it all ready and are enjoying sharing their excitement with the children who are loving their new purposefully designed environment.

Over the next few weeks we are looking forward to inviting you along to our Literacy Information Evening where we will discuss and share with you more about how we teach reading and writing. We are keen to share with you how you can support your child with story writing through the ‘Talk4Writing’ programme that has been developed across the school over the past year. There is also a school highlight for each child this term – Harvest Breakfast. The children love inviting one of their relatives to school for an early morning feast. Please check for your year group’s chosen day on the calendar.

If you would like to find out more about the type of activities and opportunities that are taking place for the children at Ashtead Pre-Prep this term, please look at our newsletters, our latest news page or follow us on Twitter or Facebook @DownsendSchool
