Toddle Waddle-Friday 21st June

On Friday 21st June, the children and teachers will be walking 5 times around the main school field.  Water will be available at all times.  The PTA will also be providing refreshments for your child.  Depending on the weather, please ensure that your child is wearing a sun hat.

On this day the children can come to school dressed in their own clothing for a contribution of £1. This year the charity’s theme is animals, so if your child would like to come in wearing an animal mask or costume that would be fantastic! Please ask if you would like another sponsorship form. If you have a completed sponsorship form, please ensure that this is handed to your child’s teacher no later than Monday 24th June.

Thank you.

Hook Day: Wednesday 12th June

This is a reminder that on Wednesday 12th June Reception will be having their Hook Day. This will encourage the children to engage with their new topic ‘Minibeasts’. Reception children are invited to dress up as their favourite minibeast. You may like to look on the internet or in the shops for costume ideas, although there is no expectation to buy a costume.  An alternative to buying a costume is for families to make their own.  Here are some examples of costumes:

Sports Day

Just a reminder that Reception will be having their Sports Day on Monday 10th June. Sports Day will take place on the main field, which is accessible via the Avenue Road gate. Please ensure that your child has their water bottle and full PE kit in school on this day. Timings for the day are as follows:

June Bug and Centipede – 8.45 – 10.00am

IWS and Rainbow Bug: 1.25 – 2.45pm (You will be able to collect your child from the Dorset Road entrance at the normal time of 3.05pm, as children will return to their classrooms to change before the end of the school day).

We look forward to seeing you there!

Beddington Park

This Thursday (6th June), Reception will be going on their trip to Beddington Park. Please can children come to school wearing their wellington boots ready for the day. Children will also need to wear long sleeved tops (either a school jumper or a long sleeve top under their school polo shirt). Children will also need the following:

  • A spare pair of jogging bottoms and socks.
  • A small back pack to put their spare clothes and school lunch in.
  • A waterproof coat/a sunhat (weather dependent).

Thank you.

Miss Taylor

Thank you

Thank you for your kind donations towards our ‘Fairy and Elves Garden’. We know that the children will enjoy the new garden. If you would still like to contribute, we will still be accepting donations after half term. We are currently looking for the following :

Large plastic plant pots, garden gnomes, herb plants e.g. lavender, pebbles and shells.

Open Classroom 16.5.19

This is a reminder that tomorrow (Thursday 16th May), Reception will be having an open classroom after school . This is an opportunity for children to show their parents around the classroom and demonstrate learning through play.

You will be able to enter your child’s classroom at approximately 3.15 until 3.30 via Dorset Road. We kindly ask that you wait in the playground until the children have been dismissed. You will then be able to enter through classroom doors.

We look forward to seeing you there!

The Reception team.
