Kit Club (Keeping In Touch) has been set up at St. Andrew’s for children of parents who are in the forces. We meet up once a week during a Wednesday lunch time. The club includes children from Foundation to Year 6 and although we encourage all to come along it is not compulsory if they prefer to play outside with their friends.
Dylan Wing is our Year 6 Kit Club ambassador and is responsible for keeping in touch with all of the KIT club children at St. Andrew's.
Our club mascot is ‘Lieutenant Andy’. The children take it in turns to take him home for the week and they are always very excited about it. Unfortunately Lieutenant Andy has gone missing!!! If anybody finds him please return him back to Miss Griffiths as soon as possible!
We always have fun drawing, making crafts and cooking. This time allows the children to talk in a relaxed atmosphere.
This year the children have been busy making and selling felt poppies to sell to raise money for the Royal British Legion. See them busy working below!
Plymouth Royal Citadel - Remembrance
We visited the Royal Citadel in Plymouth in the build up to Remembrance day. The children had the opportunity to learn about the building and what the military do there. We also visited the Poppy Wave installation on Plymouth Hoe. Some of our children were interviewed by BBC Spotlight!
The children planted some seeds and decorated the pots to give to their Mother's on Mother's Day.
The children made and decorated chocolate Easter nests. They then got to share them at a KIT Club afternoon tea with their parents. Yum yum!!!
What else can we do to support your child?
Please let us know if you are due a deployment. We appreciate that information is sensitive so we don't need to know anything specific other than the period of time you will be away for.
This is so we can provide extra support for your child and keep staff informed.
