KS1 Fun Day Friday 20th July

posted 19 Jul 2018, 06:01 by Karen Maggs

We have arranged a wet and wild day of fun on the field for all of our infant pupils.

We would like the children to come to school in their own clothes and if the weather is warm enough, we plan to fill up some paddling pools and give the children access to water buckets so they are able to have a splash about!

If they plan on splashing about, they will need:

  • a hat
  • sun cream
  • possibly a t-shirt they can get wet - for sun protection if it is really hot
  • swimming costume or trunks
  • a towel
  • a change of clothes for later on

We will be having fish and chips on the field at lunchtime under the green marquees. There is no additional cost for this – just order a red dinner.

Throughout the day, teachers will be doing some face painting and glitter tattoos for the children, so we have sent home a permission slip that you must complete if you would like your children to have a tattoo done or their face painted.

Lastly, we have organised a little surprise for all the children on the field at 2pm to finish the day off.

In order for us to deliver this fun filled day, we are asking for a small contribution from parents of £4, if any parents also have a paddling pool that they could lend us (and help inflate!!!) we would be very grateful. Please send your slips back to school ASAP so that we are able to cater for numbers and can get planning!
