Summer Sun!

As summer is now upon us and we have been enjoying some lovely weather this week, we need to ensure the children are properly protected from the sun.

We teach children to be Sun Smart, but so that you know what we expect, please support with the following –

  • apply sun cream before school (they can bring their own bottle – labelled – into school to reapply themselves at lunchtime if you would like)
  • Have a drinks bottle to refill with WATER each day
  • Wear a sun hat/cap and/or sun glasses
  • Play and stay in the shade on really hot days

Finally, please remember that the children will be still be able to climb and play outside on our equipment in the outdoor area and must be wearing closed toe sensible footwear. Open toe sandals and flip flop style shoes are not permitted.

The Giraffe class learned the traditional French song ‘Frere Jacques’. They even sang it as a round which is really tricky to do!

2M Great British Spring Clean

2M had a busy afternoon keeping our school grounds tidy. Not only is litter picking great exercise, but litter removed from our school grounds helps the wildlife and creates a better space for humans too!  Well done 2M!
