 Nursery parents/carers - Space Party

To end our topic, we would like to have an alien space party on Friday 15th February! Your child is welcome to come in to school dressed up as an alien, e.g. colourful clothes, underpants on top of clothes (we will be reading the story ‘Alien’s Love Underpants’) and facepaint. As it is a party your child can bring in some party food! Due to allergies, we ask that all children bring their own party plate or lunch box of party snacks in. If your child stays all day then they will have lunch as normal but please provide some party snacks for the morning and afternoon session.

Please let us know if your child has any allergies that we are not aware of.

World Book Day

World Book Day is on Thursday 7th March 2019 and to celebrate we are inviting all children to come to school dressedas either their favourite book character or  in their pyjamas as we are going to use this day to promote the importance of bed time reading!

We are also going to have a ‘book swap’, your child can bring in one book that they would like to put into the book swap shop and the choose another one to take home with them and keep!

Red Nose Day is on Friday 15th March 2019. To raise money for this important charity your child is welcome to come in wearing red for a £1 donation - the more red the better!
