Chinese New Year

It’s been a busy few weeks at Playgroup…we have been celebrating Chinese New Year-lots of activities including making dragons, lanterns, writing Chinese numbers, painting roosters (with forks!) and eating Chinese food (with chopsticks!). The children have loved exploring this different culture. At pre-school we have been learning about the weather, exploring something different each week- highlights include mixing colours in the rain using chalks & brooms, making things fly with our super fan, trying to free a colony of penguins that were frozen in ice and of course a huge array of art & craft activities.  We have been very busy learners!

Autumn Term

We hope that everybody has enjoyed a wonderful summer break. As the new term approaches we would like to remind our parents and carers that our new term begins on Wednesday 6th September. We look forward to welcoming you all back during this first week.

A lovely little poem

We are very proud to share a lovely poem about Beaminster Playgroup, written by one of our parents at the end of the summer term, as their little girl left us to go on to big school.  It is a wonderful poem, full of lovely words…something we will treasure for a very long time.

Pamper Fayre

We would like to say a BIG thank you to everybody that came along to our ‘Gift of Gorgeous Pamper Evening’ last week.  The village hall looked amazing and the goodies and treatments on offer were fantastic.  As always, a huge amount of effort was made by our dedicated playgroup committee who worked so hard to make this a wonderful evening.


Wishing all of our parents, carers and children a lovely, relaxing (and hopefully sunny!) Easter break.  Thank you for your continued support, we look forward to our final term when we return from the break.
