Outdoor Play:

At Thomas Gray we believe in the importance of outdoor play to the holistic development of all children. This year we have provided each child in the class with their own waterproof outdoor suit to keep them warm and dry when it rains. Please can we request that you send in a pair of wellies for your child to keep in school which will help them to enjoy investigating and exploring, whatever the weather!
