Castles Day is Tuesday 17 March. The children may dress up as a character associated with castles or come to school in green/brown (Robin Hood!) as we will be making Robin Hood hats during the day. Please note that we will be spending a large portion of the day outside (weather permitting) so suitable footwear needs to be worn and no 'best' outfits.
