School Update

It has been a busy week so far at Darite with Reception joining us once again. They have already been out in the fine weather looking for caterpillars and butterfly’s and enjoying the new decking. Their behaviour has been exemplary, and they have been fantastic role models for the other children.

The school games are in full swing: the children have been taking part in the daily activities and we have discovered some untapped talent, particularly with throwing and jumping. Thanks to all the children and families who are taking part at home and submitting the scores online. Please send any photos to school for us to share and showcase. Please keep it up!

Please can I remind you that now we have some good weather, please put sun cream on your children before coming to school. With the current guidelines, we are unable to apply it at school. They will also need a sunhat as we intend to be outside as much as possible.

Thanks a lot for all your support. Please stay safe.
