Welly Share

DSCN2521Thank you to all parents who took part in the welly share that has run before and after school all this week. Loads of nice pairs have been donated to the benefit of other Blue Coat children, and lots of children have found their new free pair and stored them safely in our fabulous welly sheds.
As the autumn and winter months and weather draw nearer, these are the terms where children will really benefit from having their wellies in school, allowing them to continue access large play spaces, including the Play Beach and the field.
If you haven't bought wellies in yet, it's not too late! They can be added to the sheds at any point in the year. The welly share will continue until Friday this week and then I will keep spares in school. If you need a different pair during the year, please do let me know and I will see if we can help.
