Stay and Play

Stay and play in Ash and Oak



We would like to offer you the opportunity to come and spend some time with your child in their classroom, so that you can get to know the environment they are learning in, look at their work and, most importantly, play and interact with them.


This will be a time when you are able to spend some quality time with your child and experience for yourselves what we get up to in Reception and find out about all those things which your child has (hopefully!) spoken about at home. As it will be part of the teaching day, the class teacher will continue to teach and will not be able to sit down with you to discuss your child in detail, but will be available to answer general questions you may have. These sessions are designed to give you time with your child, rather than the teacher.


For each session, there will be space for 2 children’s parents (a maximum of 2 adults per child and please note it is not appropriate for young children to accompany adults). To book into a session, please call the school office on 01634 337720 or sign up in the school office where the appointment sheets will be kept. We will inform you of available dates at the start of each term, so Stay and Play is not limited to these dates alone.


The following dates are available during term 2 and 3:

Thursday 28th  November

Monday 2nd December and Thursday the 5th December


Monday 13th and Wednesday 15th January

Monday 20th and Wednesday 22th January

Monday 27th and Wednesday 29th January

Wednesday 5th February



We hope that this will be a special time for both you and your child and that you will find it helpful in developing your understanding of your child’s learning journey.
