is it still the done thing to send in lollies or sweets?
Luke will be 5 on Saturday so planning on sending in something for the class on Friday.
Also he's in a two form entry reception class, do I send in enough for both classes, or just his?

they do this at Ls school, i just sent in a bag of sweets and the teachers gave them at the end. last year he was in fs1 and they shared the unit with fs2 (reception) so i sent enough for both as they are all together but if its 2 separate classes id send for his class iyswim

Ooh I don't know - c wont be at nursery on her 2nd birthday but I'm going to send in some biccies for the day before, but only enough for her nursery room and not the one adjoining. I don't think I'll send sweets as they're only tiny though.
That hasn't been any help at all has it?!

In B's previous school parents would send in cake for both classes. I never did as I never had the money, he had two as it was for his party and one on his actual birthday!
Sweets are a good idea, maybe one of those multi packs of haribo sweets :o) I would send in for both classes but that is because B had lots of friends in both classes.

C's class got given them on his first "day" (he was only there 2 hours) yesterday because it had been one of the teachers birthdays the previous week. At his pre-school quite a few of the children did this, but not all - usually a little pack of haribo or milky bar buttons. We didn't because most of his friends had already been to his party a couple of days before and had cake and sweets in their party bags.

I never sent him in with anything. A party for the last couple of years has been expensive enough!

I would just double check with the teacher as different schools have different policies. A was the first yo turn 5 in her class (even though she is an October birthday)I just checkedwit the teacher and it was fine to bring sweets. However some schools don't allow it.

I send in sweets enough for the class. I wouldn't do it for both classes in their year

I send in a bag of sweets.
C also takes a bag of sweets in, when he is back off holidays.

We're not allowed at the boys school.

I think most schools allow it but definitely double check. 1 of the schools I worked at the majority of the pupils were asian so didn't eat haribo.
