Jubilee Celebrations!

We’ve had such a lovely week this week HETTY celebrating Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

We finished our week off with a party in the school hall and it was wonderful to see the children dressed in their red, white and blue.

The children have been making Jubilee themed crafts all week. There have been flags, kites, corgis, bunting, crowns, cake designs, stamps and paper plate Queens to name but a few.

We’ve had so many home made crowns at HETTY this week we thought we were in Buckingham Palace!

We hope you enjoy these photos of our fun filled week!




We are delighted to tell you about the fantastic opportunity we have to join our Board of Trustees at HETTY Preschool.

Today the sun has been glorious.

We spent the morning having lots and lots of fun. We started the day with a little natter on the carpet learning some important social skills, danced some groovy moves listening to music and action songs. then played outside in the beautiful sunshine before it got too hot. We then followed that, with a trip to the forest.

Have a look at the photos below… The children loved our “magic camera”.  We learnt some colours too.


Happy Red Nose day to you!

What is a cat’s favourite colour?  Purrr-ple!

What do you call a train carrying a load of bubble gum?   A chew-chew train!

What colour is the wind?    Blew!

What colour socks do bears wear?    They don’t wear socks, they have bear feet!

Enough, enough we hear you cry! How about some photos of our Red Nose Day Comic Relief celebrations instead? Lots of the children wore red today………..are you REDdy to take a look?




Red Nose Day

Friday 18th March

Dress up in anything red – suggested 50p donation.

What a fantastic array of costumes we have had at HETTY for World Book Day!

Well done to all our Elsas, Annas, Superheroes, witches, wizards, Gruffalos, princesses, tigers, rats, bears and everyone else! We have really enjoyed our activities this week celebrating World Book Day 2022.


The children had lots of fun celebrating the ‘Year of the Tiger’ this year at HETTY. We ate prawn crackers and noodles, danced with our dragon, created lots of crafts and wished people ‘Gung Hay Fat Choy!’

The children at HETTY will be spending some time thinking about all the soldiers who have helped us and the people who are no longer here.

We will watch this beautiful film about poppies produced by CBeebies and then we will try to sit quietly for a minute with our eyes closed.


Don’t forget our spotty day on Wednesday 10th November.

We’re asking the children to come into HETTY on Wednesday dressed in spots to help raise money for Children in Need.  It would be great if you could donate something towards the charity – anything from 10p to £10 – every little helps!

We’ll be doing all things Pudsey this week so watch out for the photos in the gallery over the next few weeks.

We would appreciate it if you refrained from sending any nuts, or nut related products, eg. peanut butter, in your child’s lunch box.

We have some children with nut allergies and need to keep them safe.

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
