Friday May Day Dancing Afternoon children are welcome to join us . Please come to the Foundation Stage Unit at 9am.

You are warmly invited to join us for our May Day celebrations next week, which will commence at 9.30am on the playground (weather permitting – otherwise we will have to be in the school hall).  Prior to the celebrations, FOHNS will be selling tea, coffee & croissants from 9.00am to all spectators attending the May Day celebrations.

We will be rather snug as the building work has encroached on to the playground, so there will be a limited number of chairs for those who need one; we hope you don’t mind standing!

Dress Code: Girls –pretty dresses, Boys – smart shirts and school trousers or shorts, Year 6 – jeans and a white shirt or t-shirt, with sensible shoes for dancing (no crocs, flip flops, boots or loose slip-on shoes).  Children should come to school in their May Day outfits but can change into school uniform afterwards if you wish. Please make sure children bring a warm coat!

Afternoon Foundation Stage children may join the dancing – please bring children to the Foundation Stage Unit at 9.15am, and collect them from the classroom at the end of the celebrations. If wet weather means that we have to be in the hall, children should be collected after their dance from the Foundation Stage.

Health and Safety: Please ensure your child does not go on the adventure playground before or after school.  As part of our safe-guarding duty, that all schools have to implement to make sure children are kept safe, please refrain from using your mobile phone in school.
