Brandon Primary School children are loving playtimes now that OPAL is up and running! There is so much more to do and everyone wants to be out there whatever the weather. There is no time to be bored and as a result of the freedom children have to play where they want with whoever they want, playtime behavioural incidents have dramatically reduced. Look how much fun children are having in the fresh air. Not only are the new play opportunities promoting health and well-being, but also children are developing life skills such as cooperation, team work and problem solving. They are becoming enthusiastic and motivated scientists, engineers, builders and explorers!
Thank you for your support with:
· Sending your child to school with appropriate warm/waterproof clothing and wellies
· Donating to school any outgrown wellies and waterproof trousers/cagoules
· Supporting the OPAL ethos by asking your child about their play and accepting that they may get dirty…. If you wish you may send spare clothing for playtimes
You can still help us more by donating some unwanted materials you may have at home such as,...
Plastic or metal buckets, kitchen utensils , kettles, pans (for the mud kitchen), watering cans, wheel barrows, guttering, planks, shower curtains, tarpaulin, large fabric pieces, toy trucks and diggers….
