Playgroup Sports Day

Parents, Grandparents and Friends all joined together in the sunshine, to watch the Playgroup children take part in Woodland Corner's very first Sports Day.

It was a very happy occasion and all the hard work of the children and Playgroup Staff paid off, as all the children took part in the races and then proudly showed off their medals and certificates at the award ceremony. The event was followed by a big family picnic in the garden of Woodland Corner. A perfect ending to a very busy term at Playgroup!

We would like to invite families and friends to join us at Woodland Corner at 11am to watch children’s races. Afterwards we will have a picnic in the garden at Woodland Corner finishing around 12.45.

Please provide picnic lunches for both days. There will be no hot school lunches available on either day and no Lunch Club for Ducklings children.

Parents/carers not attending should collect their children at normal pick up times. Both events will be cancelled if it is raining and playgroup sessions will continue until normal time.

Please inform staff if you and/or  your child will be attending our Sports Day.

Playgroup learn about ponies and traps.

Playgroup visited a group with ponies and traps who had stopped to rest on the river bank in Nayland. The drivers who were on their way to Ipswich Common down the A12, also had a horse called A12 , who earned its name after escaping down the dual carriage way and stopping traffic. They were kind enough to stay a while longer so that the children could visit. The children were very excited by their visit, they were allowed to pet the ponies and sit in the cart. The drivers then showed the children how they hitched their ponies to the cart, before they carried on to their destination.
