Welcome back after the Easter holidays. we hope the weather is warming up and we can spend lots of time outdoors this term which the children all enjoy. We are also pleased to welcome two new children joining Rainbows this term.
We are collecting Active Kids Vouchers from Sainsburys this term, the offer finishes in May and I need all the vouchers in by the beginning of July please, there is a collection box in the front lobby, why not ask your friends and neighbours if they have any vouchers to spare? We also appreciate your contributions of fruit and vegetables for the children's snacktime, we are working hard to try and encourage some of the more reluctant children to try different foods.
I have booked our trip to Birdworld for Wednesday 15 June, all the children are invited and a separate letter will be sent our in a few weeks time asking for your confirmation and payment. We will need 3 or 4 parents to accompany us if you are free that day. We plan more walks to the park and woods this term now the weather is warming up, we will try and give a few days notice so the children can bring boots that day if it is muddy.
We will be saying goodbye to 12 of our older children who leave to start their new schools in September, so the second half of this term becomes busy with visits from the reception teachers who come to visit their new pupils, and the children are usually invited to their new schools in June and July. We will plan a trip to Godalming for these older children by bus and train with a picnic in the park which can all be very exciting with your friends.
After our visit from Ofsted on 29 February when we were very pleased to be graded as 'Good' again, the report is now on their website www.ofsted.gov.uk if you would like to read it, I also have 2 paper copies here if you prefer.
