We spend a lot of time outdoors, whatever the weather! We usually ask the children to wear wellies when they play outdoors, especially if it is wet or they want to play n the digging area. We have a box of wellies in different sizes, but have noticed that some children prefer to wear their own. If you want to provide wellies from home, this is absolutely fine. Please name them and leave them in the basket underneath your child's named peg in the cloakroom area.
If your child comes to school in wellies, when the weather is bad, please remember to bring a pair of shoes or pumps to wear indoors.
During summer months, please remember to apply sunscreen to children before Nursery. Once-a-day sunscreen is ideal. If you are unable to use a once-a-day formula, please remember to hand in your child's named sunscreen and ensure that signed consent has been given for reapplication at lunchtime.
We have a basket of spare hats available but children are of course welcome to wear their own sunhats. Please write names in the labels!
When it is particularly hot, we are very aware of the length of time children spend outside and we bring them indoors regularly to sit down and drink water.
If you have any questions about sun safety, please ask Mrs Jameson or Mrs Smith.
Thank you! We know that our children benefit from using the outdoor area all year round and appreciate your support in ensuring that they are comfortable and safe.
