Blue Coat Pre-School Newsletter - June 2018

Summer is here at last and we have been making good use of the dry weather to play outside for much of the day. We hope you have seen some of the lovely outdoor photographs on your child’s Tapestry account.

Sunny weather

Please make sure that you have put sun cream on your child, before they come to Pre-School when we are experiencing sunny weather. We can help them to apply more later in the day as long as they have some (named) sun cream in their bags. Please also remember the named hat. We do provide shade over activities on the hottest of days and encourage the children to drink plenty of water, your help in keeping the children safe in the sun is greatly appreciated.

Good news!

We congratulate Harry on passing his apprenticeship and gaining his level 3 in Children’s Learning and Development.


Please make sure that your child’s name is on their lunchbox. It is not unusual for more than one child to have the same lunchbox. We do not have fridge space to store all the lunchboxes so a small ice pack is advisable during the warmer weather. Please remember that Pre-School is nut free, so do not include nuts, peanut butter/Nutella products or nutty cereal bars.


This term is always busy with the Toggles children being involved in lots of events with the school as they prepare to move on in September. We have also got our end of term disco and the trip to Cattle Country (see separate letters for more information) to look forward to.
