Sponsored Walk and Jubilee Day 2022

Friday 27th May – Our whole school community Sponsored Walk
We are really looking forward to our annual sponsored walk and this year all money raised will be going towards our new sensory garden, as well as improving and developing our existing outdoor learning areas – our wildlife pond, polytunnel and forest school area.

What does your child need for this day?

Please provide your child with a bottle of water and a small snack such as fruit (nothing containing nuts please). Please do not give your child chocolate or sweets as part of their snack.
Please make sure your child has appropriate clothes for the weather on the day; PE kit/sportswear including trainers (wellies if very wet), leggings/joggers (not shorts due to brambles and nettles), tshirt/long sleeve top, coat, sun hat etc, and apply sun cream before coming to school. Please remind your child that they are responsible for carrying their own snack/drink/coat etc, so not to bring too much.

Classes will start leaving the school from 9:00am. Parents/carers are very welcome to join their child’s class for our 5km walk around Mereworth Woods and back to the school where we will enjoy a whole school picnic lunch. Dogs are also welcome to join the walk (on leads please), however they will not be able to come onto school premises. Edwards & Ward are providing a GRAB BAG lunch on this day. Lunch will start from approx. 11:45am and finish at 12:45pm. Parents will leave after lunch, so that children can return to class for their afternoon learning from 1:00pm. We really hope that as many of you as possible will be able to attend this special whole school event and help us to achieve our £3,000 fundraising target!

I know how much the children are looking forward to these school events and hope that you will all be able to join us.

Thursday 26th May – A celebration of the Queen’s Jubilee
The whole school will spend a fun day learning about the Queen’s life and completing learning activities across the curriculum, including a focus on a particular decade in her life, a commonwealth country and completing art and design activities related to the Queen’s family and life to date. Edwards & Ward are supporting our celebration with a Queen’s Jubilee Lunch Special Menu – please see attached. Children can order their meal choice on the day during morning registration. For Year 3-Year 6 children, please ensure there is enough money in your SCOPAY account (£2.35 for the meal). Our lunchtime will be transformed for this special celebration day with staff serving the children at their tables. In the afternoon we are looking forward to welcoming senior citizens from the local community to join us for our whole school tea party outside, and after half term there will be special dance workshops for each class linked to the decade that they have studied on this day.

What does your child need for this day?

  • We would like children to come in to school wearing their own clothes and with something red, white and blue.
  • For our tea party in the afternoon, please can your child bring in a paper plate of food for themselves (not for sharing). This should be clearly named and covered (eg foil/clingfilm, and contain no nuts/seeds.
  • Children to bring in/donate decorations for our party in the afternoon e.g. bunting, Union Flags, balloons etc in red white and blue.
