Event Changes and a Catch Up

Dear Parents and Carers


We have sent an email today, detailing the changes we have had to make to events following the government announcement of the 4 week covid delay yesterday evening. the letter can also be found on our parent information section here:


Thank you to all the Year 1 parents who helped us get the children from the stuck coach, and for waiting so patiently in the playground. Our first trip out, and we got stuck at the end. The children were expert geographers when they came back and know lots of physical and human features of the seaside!


Fox Class and Hedgehog Class had a brilliant time swimming last week. All adults and children had the biggest beaming smiles at the end of the sessions. We look forward to Frog Class starting their sessions this week. Please can you practise changing and towel wiping if your child finds this tricky. Please do not put your child in tight tracksuit bottoms or leggings on swimming day, as some of the children who wore these garments found it trickier to get dressed again after being in the pool.


We have organised a 'sponsored walk' next week to raise money for some outside book huts for children to use when outside. If we raise enough, we would also like to have some multiuse roleplay buildings that we can turn into different things, such as a cafe counter, bird hideout, shop etc. We are aiming to put one of each in the Early Years Area and one on the bigger playground, reinforcing our philosophy of learning through play for all aged children. Our walk will be a mile long and we have an exciting route planned. Sponsor forms will be going home today and payments can be made through scopay.


Best wishes


Mrs Riches
