nephin Road June newsletter 2011

June Newsletter 2011


We would like to welcome the following children to Mother Hubbard’s,
Fionn’s baby brother Lucien who is settling in this week.
Julia and her parents Nathy and Catherine.
Grace and her parents Una and Noel.
Stephen was 3 this month!
Demi was 2 this month!
Niamh and Caoimhe will be 5 this month!
Aine will be 4 this month!
Cara will be 3 this month!

All children must be supervised on the stairs when entering and leaving the premises. Also it is very important that the stair gate is closed behind them.

It is important that children do not bring items such as toys into crèche. This causes confusion with the children and the items may be misplaced.

The Sessional Montessori will be finishing up in the 30th of June. Michelle and Jessie will be doing the Summer Camp programme with the other children throughout the summer months.

Speech and Drama!
The Speech and Drama play will be taking place on the 17th of June at 4pm. All children taking part must be in by 3pm.

If you haven’t already put up the dates of your holidays could you please put the dates up on the form on the cloakroom door. We hope everybody enjoys their holidays and has a safe trip!

Summer Reciepe!
The secret to this lemonade recipe is to use simple syrup, made by boiling together sugar and water, then cooling. The sugar is completely dissolved and blends beautifully with the tart lemon.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes    

Total Time: 25 minutes                

Yield: 6 servings



·                          1 cup water
·                          1 cup sugar
·                          Juice from 4-6 lemons
·                          4 cups cold water
·                          Mint sprigs


Blend 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar well in small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves completely. Let cool and refrigerate. (This is the simple syrup.)
Mix the simple syrup well with the juice from 4-6 lemons (strained or not, as you like) and stir well. Add 4 cups cold water and mix. Try using sparkling water for some fizz! Pour into thermos or large jug, adding thin lemon slices if you'd like, or garnish with mint sprigs.
You can increase the amounts of this recipe proportionately, depending on the amount of lemonade you want.
          A big Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads this weekend!
