May Day Thursday 1st May 9am Afternoon children should come to school at 8.55am if they wish to join in with the dancing. Please be punctual as we are dancing first. Girls may wear pretty dresses and cardigans, boys a white shirt and dark trousers. Shoes must be suitable for dancing eg no crocs or slip on shoes that may slip off.


We spend a lot of time learning outdoors. The weather is really changeable so please ensure that children have a coat with a hood each day. Gilets may be warm but do not keep the children dry. Thank you
