Outdoor Clothing and Footwear
It's all about the season!
We try to get outside as much as possible, whether that be down to the playground, on to the school field, in our garden and outdoor play space, a walk around the village, across the nearby fields or to our Forest School site. Outdoor clothing is a must!
We recommend that a pair of wellies be kept at preschool (we do have wellie baskets in the cloakroom) as it enables us to venture out even if the ground is soggy. Please also make sure that children have hats, gloves and a warm, waterproof coat. Many parents are investing in waterproof trousers and jackets, especially for Forest School sessions – if children are dressed appropriately we can still benefit from the great outdoors whatever the weather.
Just as important is appropriate clothing in warmer weather – strappy t-shirts equals burnt shoulders in the sunny weather and walking across lumpy, bumpy fields is really hard in flip flops. Lastly, please could you ensure that the children’s clothes and shoes are suitably labelled so that there is no confusion.
