Weekly update 8th December 2023

Forest School, Kingfisher Class, 14th December

As the whole school is going out to the pantomime in the morning, please send children with a school jumper on over their forest school clothes.  This will really help us in the theatre as there will be other schools there with us.  We will make sure they remove their jumpers before going to Forest School in the afternoon.  Please send a jumper/warm top for them to change in to for the afternoon.
