Thank you to all those who were able to attend the Colourful Semantics Workshop today. Please find below the ppt from today for your reference. All the children will be coming home with a Colourful Semantics bookmark to use together as you read, talk and play.


Colourful Semantics Workshop For parents and children Thursday 1st February


Parents (1 adult per child due to space) are invited to join  Mrs Pugh and Mrs Mitchell to find out about Colourful Semantics, a communication tool to help your children with developing their communication skills through stories. Mrs Pugh will give a brief demonstration of how to use colourful semantics and you will get an opportunity to share a story with your child.

Thank You

This term “ Autumn 2” our topic in Pre school is What do we celebrate? The children will have the opportunity to celebrate our cultural differences and confidently talk about their own experiences and knowledge of any celebrations they have been apart of. To begin to recognise what makes them special and communicate some of the similarities and differences in relation to friends and family.

This term our topic is “ Who do I belong to?” During this topic we want the children to know……..

*We are different but God loves us all the same.

*How our family looks after us and how we can look after them.

*The different parts of our body.


So with this in mind could you please send in some family photos, in a labelled envelope for us to share and discuss during our circle time. 
Thank You ๐Ÿ˜Š Mrs Ray


Hello to all our new and existing families,

Opening times for Little Kenelm’s Pre-School…

Morning session starts at 8.30am

Morning session ends at 11.30am

Afternoon session starts at 12.30pm

Afternoon session ends at 3.30pm



Sessions can be taken as full days, morning sessions or afternoon sessions. If your child is staying for the full day, there is a small charge for the lunch hour and you will need to provide your child with a lunch box. For more information, please contact the school office and ask for Mrs Hughes. 

Please be punctual at the beginning and end of each session. It is also important that all parents are available during the Pre- school sessions to be contacted if necessary.

Show and Tell

Throughout the year in pre-school, we will be having ‘Show and Tell’ sessions every Tuesday. As part of these sessions, children are invited to bring in an item from home that they would like to show to the rest of the class and tell us about. The rest of the class will have the chance to ask your child questions about their item. This is a great opportunity for the children to practise their speaking and listening skills and also develop their self-confidence when speaking to a group.

We will notify you when it is your child's turn for show and tell. 

Letters from parents May 2021:


"I just wanted to say how lovely yesterday’s pre-school drop-in hour was.

The welcome that myself and my daughter Bridie Hodge received from Mrs Finnegan and Mrs Ray was so lovely and made us feel very relaxed.

Bridie had a lovely time and she is really excited to start her pre-school journey in September." with OLSK.


Kind regards,

Caroline Hodge





"My partner and daughter, Isabella attended Little Kenelm's Open Day this week and I just wanted to thank the staff for making it so special. 

Isabella told me how much fun she had when she got home, in great detail! She cannot wait to come back and we are so happy that she got the opportunity to visit." 


Thank you again,
