Newsletter - w/c 10/05/21
Please see below for some important notices about school life:
Sadly, we have some children who do not bring a PE kit to school. This makes them feel different to other children and it can make them feel uncomfortable during physical education lessons, which, given how much time children have been stuck indoors, have become more important than ever before.
Please make sure your child has a PE kit and that they bring it into school on a Monday and take it home on a Friday for washing (if it needs washing). Please click here to remind yourself of what PE kit a child must have.
If you are having financial difficulty, we may be able to provide a PE kit for your child/ren. Please speak to a member of staff you trust about this.
Some children, particularly those in Years 3-6, are bringing pop fidget toys to school. The difficulty with this is that children lose toys, and mistakenly take toys (as lots of them have the same ones) and this causes upset and arguments. Unless it is a special day where we have told children to bring toys to school, please keep all toys at home. The teachers have told the children about this in class as well.
The items your child should be bringing to school are as follows:
- Their reading book/s
- Their reading record
- Their homework (by Wednesday each week)
- A PE kit (which you can bring to school on a Monday and take home on a Friday for washing, if needed)
- A waterproof jacket or coat that is labelled with their name
- A water bottle that is labelled with their name
- A healthy packed lunch (if they do not have a school meal)
Free Books - Wednesday 12 May 2021
After school on the front playground on Wednesday 12 May 2021, you will be able to take home lots of free books - everything from storybooks to educational textbooks. Please bring a bag to help you carry the books home.
Drop off and Collection - Starting Monday 17 May 2021
From Monday 17 May 2021, as restrictions ease, the gate will open at 8:35am for you to drop off your child between 8:40am and 8:55am. In the afternoon, the gate will open at 3:10pm for you to collect your child between 3:15pm and 3:30pm.
We recommend you continue to wear a face covering on site, and we politely request you drop off and collect your child/ren quickly.
The NHS are providing regular rapid COVID-19 tests to all citizens, which you may read about and order here.
Photo Day - Thursday 20 May 2021
This is a reminder that the photographer will be in school on Thursday 20 May 2021 to take individual and class photographs. We know many parents/carers are eager to have these photographs, particularly as we were unable to organise them last school year.
