Summer Days

Rowan Class Announcement

During the summer term we will continue to have “Show and Tell” on Wednesday afternoons.  This is a chance to bring in an item of interest or something that your child has made and would like to share. There may have been a special event or a visit in your family and we would love to hear about it. Please can we ask parents to discourage children from bringing in toys. 

Show and Tell will start on Wednesday 10th Easter 2024

Helpful Tips for EYFS 

PE Kits: PE takes place on a Wednesday.  Children come into school dressed in their PE kits and wear them all day.  The kit is a royal blue PE T-shirt, royal blue shorts, royal blue tracksuit trousers (optional) and plimsolls or trainers.

Forest School: Our summer sessions are yet to be confirmed. We will inform you prior to the sessions starting. 

Fruit and milk: A healthy piece of fruit is available each day.  Free milk is available until children turn five.  Please enquire at the school office for details.

Snacks: Children may bring healthy snacks for morning or afternoon breaks.  We allow chocolate once a week (Tuesdays).  Sweets and lollipops are not permitted, as these are a potential choking hazard. As the children mature, we encourage them to open packaging independently.

Cold weather: Please can children come to school adequately protected against the weather.  We will always endeavour to take children outside onto the playground or under the veranda for fresh air.  Please ensure coats, scarves, gloves etc are named and recognisable by your child.

Water Bottles: Your child will need a water bottle in school every day.  Please can these bottles be filled with water, rather than squash or juice. The water bottle needs to be clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Uniform: Please ensure that all of your child's belongings are clearly labelled to reduce the risk of items being misplaced. 

Spare Clothes: It is helpful if your child has spare clothing in their bag for emergencies, eg pants and socks.  It does not need to be school uniform.

Care Plan: If your child requires a care plan for any medical needs, please collect a form from the school office and return to school ASAP.

Wellies: Please can children keep a clearly labelled pair of wellies in school.
