Sports Day Wednesday 15th July at 1.30pm
Everyone is invited to join us for the afternoon to watch the children take part in a variety of activities and races. The children traditionally wear a t shirt that is the colour of their house; red, blue, green or yellow. They do not need them till the day itself. If this is tricky a white t shirt is still fine.
Parent helpers for Sports Day
If you can help for even part of the afternoon; serving refreshments outside that would be much appreciated. Please speak to myself or Beth Wheldon (FoS).
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any queries.
