Vegetable Beds and Bag2School
Published on 28th May 2014 by Alison
We will be planting the vegetable beds shortly. Our theme is ‘pick and eat’ – anything the children can pick and eat straight away. Tomatoes, beans, peas, peppers, cucumber, strawberries and more. If you are planting in your garden at the moment and have any ‘spare’ plants please do let us know.
If you’ve been saving a great pile of clothing/bags/shoes/soft toys you’ll be pleased to hear that our next Bag2School collection is on Thursday 26 June. Bag2School collect unwanted textiles in good condition which are then sold to export markets worldwide where they are sorted and then sold to the general public. They operate throughout the UK and since 2001 have paid over £19 million to participating schools, colleges, nurseries, pre-schools, playgroups. It is great fundraising and a great opprtunity for us all to have a summer clear-out! We’ll let you know when the blue bags arrive.
We seem to have lost the sun today. But it will be back so can we remind you all to ensure that your little ones have all the right stuff with them, specifically a spare set of clothing in a named bag and labelled sun hat and sun cream. If you haven’t swapped the spare winter clothes in the bag on your peg for spare summer clothes yet please make a note to do so. There is always lots of water play in warn weather so we often need fresh clothes! Remember that it is very helpful if you can label all clothing and footwear (one of the simplest ways is to use a fabric pen on the care label).
