All classes are reminded to bring their pumpkin in, leading up to Halloween. There are prizes for the best pumpkins!! Come and join the fun this week !!
Next week we would like all our gymnasts to bring a pumpkin to the gym for a ‘pumpkin competition’. Children are asked to wear a Halloween costume – OPTIONAL (even though the email said no costume), but…no make up sorry. We can’t afford for our new floor to be stained or smudged with fancy dress make up. There will be prizes for the best pumpkin for each of the groups. The groups and days to bring your pumpkin are shown below
