Welcome back to those parents who were with us last academic year and a big welcome to new parents.
The children have had an excellent start to the new term and have settled in really quickly to their surroundings. They are becoming familiar with new staff and routines and have had plenty of fun exploring new activities and areas. Well done children!
Clothing: Please make sure that your child has a complete change of clothes with them every day so that we can change them after they have had lots of messy fun if needed!! (The muddy digging area is proving to be very popular at the moment.) Wellies and a warm coat are also required in the setting daily, (waterproof trousers are also a good idea so your child can continue to play outside all year round).
Snack Money: You should have received a letter explaining about snack. Please send in your contribution as soon as possible and make sure you let us know about any allergies that your child may have. Thank you.
Naming clothing: Please can you make sure that all clothing, even shoes have names in. We have lots of shoes/ wellies that look exactly the same. We will be sending home next week a letter with a company that does iron on labels and printed name stickers which are perfect for water bottles and lunch boxes. For every order placed, FS1 will receive a £1 donation to help us buy new toys for the children in the setting.
INSET Days: As you know, school has INSET closures during the year. The dates for this academic year are:
- Monday 1st October 2012
