P1M & W: Wet Weather Clothing

Good afternoon,

As the weather has been particularly changeable this week, could you please ensure that your child has full waterproofs (wellies – kept in class, waterproof trousers and jacket or puddle suit – kept in your child’s bag) every day. This helps with our outdoor learning & keeps them dry during playtime/lunchtime.

Thanks,

Miss Wilson & Miss Murray

There are only a few simple rules –

bikes and scooters should be wheeled through the playground on the way in and out of school and on the ashy path.

Parents and younger siblings are welcome to join in the challenge.

Each class will get the chance to cycle and scoot with their friends in the playground during their day.

We would ask that you check over bikes and scooters to make sure they are safe to use, especially if they haven’t been used for a while.

Please don’t worry if your child is unable to bring their bike or scooter on any of their days.  Walking counts too!
