Dear Parents and children,
I am really looking forward to seeing you all in September. The children worked very hard last term and it was a pleasure to have them back in school. We were very impressed with the way they all coped with the new routines. We are looking forward to welcoming back the children who continued with their home learning. We also send a warm welcome to Elsie who will be joining our class in September.
I am just writing to confirm the new arrangements for the start of the year. We will start school on Thursday September 3rd. Year Two’s school day will be from 9:00- 3:00. The children will come into school and leave from our Year Two classroom door. Please would parents continue to social distance when dropping children off and collecting them. We will continue with our social distancing in school. The classroom will be set up in compliance with the government’s guidance.
The Year Two children will be in their own bubble. We will be having whole school Zoom assemblies in the classrooms on Mondays and Fridays as we are not able to have assemblies in the school hall. Playtimes and lunchtimes will be staggered throughout the school. Year Two will have morning break from 10:35-10:50. Their lunch time will be from 12:15-1:15pm, their lunch sitting is from 12:20-12:50pm. There will be no clubs in Term One.
P.E will take place on Wednesdays, so please can the children come to school dressed in their PE kit on this day. Please wear full school PE kit. The children can wear school sweatshirts, tracksuit trousers or t-shirt and shorts, depending on the weather. Please also wear trainers on Wednesdays.
Please can the children bring a water bottle and snack to school every day.
Children may bring their own pencil cases to school, which will remain in school.
The website ‘Rising Stars’ is available for reading over the Summer holidays. New books will be set at the beginning of the holiday. If you are able to keep reading over the Summer, it will really help you when you return in September.
In the first week back we will send home information relating to reading books and book bags as we are waiting for guidance on these nearer the time. Please do not bring book bags to school in the first week of term. I will send details of the curriculum in September.
We hope you have a wonderful Summer holiday,
From Miss Dargie
