A few pointers…

We’re really looking forward to seeing the children again! We have missed them very much.

We just thought we’d share with you an outline of how we envisage co-ordinating learning in school and at home.

First of all, if your child isn’t going to be in school, don’t worry. You can continue to follow our planning which we will carry on sending out by email each week, as well as posting it on to our blog. We’ll phone home regularly too so if there’s anything else you need, just let us know, and we can talk about it.

For those parents whose children are returning  in their bubbles next week, we will be following our plans especially for Maths and Read, Write, Inc so IF you have time, we would be very grateful if you can also follow these specific subject plans at home but again we know people are juggling working from home and home schooling so we completely understand time is an issue. At school, we will also be making sure that children are happy, interacting safely with their friends and getting used to being back at school.

We thought it would be useful to have a few reminders:

  • Please send in a packed lunch unless your child will having a school dinner ‘grab bag’.
  • Please send in a healthy snack for break time and water in a named water bottle (as it specifies in the video, if your child needs lots of water you may want to send in two as they ill not be able to refill them).
  • Please send in some spare clothes in a bag in case of accidents. We are hoping to get the children outside as much as possible so they may get muddy.
  • Children do not need PE kits but can wear trainers.
  • Please can all toys, teddies, etc, stay at home.
  • Please arrive during your arrival time slot at the main gate. Please talk to your child about arrival and pick up so that they know you will not be coming into the school grounds. Staff will be welcoming children at the gate.
  • Please return any reading books sent home before lockdown. We have prepared new sets of reading books for the children to use.

We are so happy about seeing all the children again! We’re going to have a great time together. As always, just email us if you have any questions. We would like thank you again for being so understanding during this time.
