Sun Cream, Sun Hats and water bottles for EVERYONE

This is a message for everyone from Reception to Year 6.

Please can you ensure your child is now bringing to school a NAMED sun hat and a small bottle of sun cream, also named to school each day. We can not apply the sun cream to your child so would appreciate you talking them through how to apply it.

Reusuable water bottles are also needed in school. They should be brought in with a name clearly on them. Many children already have the same, being named makes life so much easier for everyone. We also request that it is water in them and not squash or fizzy drinks.

Many thanks.

Sun Safety in Reception

Now the weather is (hopefully!) warming up please can we ask that your child has a sun hat, drinks bottle (water only please!) and wearing sunscreen which has been applied before arrival to school in the morning.

Children may bring in their own sunscreen to reapply during the school day. We ask that your child is able to apply this to themselves. The ‘roller’ type sunscreens have been recommended to us and are particularly good for smaller hands – thank you very much to Millie’s mum for the recommendation.


In the days ahead we will be spending lots of time outside practising for our upcoming sports day next week. Therefore the above is really important.

Thank you for your support with this.

Reception Team.

We are just having lunch before boarding the bus to return.

We will see you at 3pm for a normal end of day. Please find your children in their normal classroom, Year 3 or 4.

Many thanks

Last morning at How Hill.

We are having a fabulous last morning before we venture back to school. The children are currently orienteering around this field. They are very tired but still finding so much enthusiasm to keep going. We are so proud of the group, they have been amazing.

Final details of pick up will come in a while.

Peelings have confirmed, that for today, they fully expect to be able to drop off at all 3 bus stops in Ryburgh this afternoon. If because of the emergency closure you have arranged for your child to be picked up from school, but you’d now like them to go home on the bus, please contact the school office and let them know.
