Can your child please wear their sports day teeshirt on this day as we are hoping to have the Olympic colours.
Week 3 we will be concentrating on our big zoo/sleepover excursion. We will send home reminder notes of what to bring next week. We know there are some ‘nervous nellies’ out there but please, we are encouraging all children to be brave and to give it a go. Be assured if your child is upset, we will ring – we don’t want negative experiences because this is all about being able to have a new experience in a very safe way. You never know what you can do if you don’t give it a go!
