Please provide spare clothes for your child in a draw string bag. These will be left in school, in case your child has an accident of simply gets wet/muddy within our outdoor provision. If your child does have an accident, these clothes will be sent home and we would appreciate it if you return the spare clothes as soon as possible. We will be spending lots of time enjoying the outdoor provision so please send in a spare pair of wellington boots if you have any and again these can be stored in school. Please label all of your children’s belongings.
In order to provide your children with the variety of snack, baking opportunities and creative consumables we request a contribution of £30 for the full year. During this term your child will be developing their independence by adding different toppings to their toast. They will enjoy baking some tasty treats and as the weather grows colder we will have a nice cup of warm hot chocolate. As this first term is particularly rich with festivities there will also be many other surprises along the way. We have many activities planned this term that include, seasonal crafts, making and decorating cakes, making slime, salt dough constructions and lots more. Please ensure your money is in an envelope clearly labelled with your child’s name and class.

Our Reception Outdoor Vision!
The EYFS states:
• ‘Being outdoors has a positive impact on children's sense of well-being and helps all aspects of children's development.
• Being outdoors offers opportunities for doing things in different ways and on different scales than when indoors.
• It gives children first-hand contact with weather, seasons and the natural world.
• Outdoor environments offer children freedom to explore, use their senses, and be physically active and exuberant.’
We are looking to improve our outdoor area to make it exciting and inviting for our wonderful children. We need your help!
We would be very grateful for anything you could donate to us and it would be highly beneficial for our children to explore and investigate with such open ended resources! Together with our caretaker we want create and build some amazing structures for our children and build up our outdoor area.
Attached are various inspirational pictures from our school Outdoor Vision and a google page for you to visit to help understand the types of equipment we are looking for and how we would use it.
