Class Reminders

Posted on May 25th, 2017 by Woodpecker Class

 

Finally, summer is here!

 Please may we remind you to send in a sun hat for your child for play times – this does not need to be a Bromet sun hat, one from home will be fine, please ensure it is named!

You may also wish to apply sun cream to your child before school, or if they are able to apply it themselves, they may bring some in with them, for their use only.

Please make sure your child has a water bottle in school every day and if they suffer with asthma, that they have an up to date inhaler in school at all times.

Thank you, let’s hope it lasts!
