Information and Reminders.
Our Infant Christmas Show is fast approaching and the Infant school team will be sending home information regarding any costumes which you may need to provide on Friday. We do not expect parents to buy a costume for the show but we may require coloured clothing (T-shirts, trousers) which we can then enhance for the production. For example, if your child is a Christmas star in the show, we may need you to send in a black T-shirt and black trousers and we will then add tinsel to make the stars sparkle.
We are all so happy to see children coming into school with appropriate uniform for the cold winter months but please do not forget that your child will need at least a thick coat, a scarf and gloves. We teach the children to tuck their gloves into their coat pockets so they don’t get lost; please reinforce this with your children at home. We know how important being active and socialising at playtime is for children but we cannot let them play outside if they don’t have the correct uniform!
