Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome back to our new school year! We hope you all enjoyed family time over the summer. Thank you for your thoughtful and generous gifts at the end of last term – all were much appreciated.
Our term has started well and we’d like to extend a very warm welcome to our new families and staff.
As you’re all aware, restrictions have lifted and we are operating in a different way this term. There is no requirement for bubbles so children are mixing between classes and Key Stages again. Year 1 have enjoyed spending time with their Year 6 Buddies already this week and Reception children will begin to get to know their Year 6 Buddies next week.
Here is a link to the revised risk assessment detailing the measures we are taking to continue to work in a safe way. Please do ask if you have any queries.
You will have received a letter from your child’s class teacher (Y1 to Y6) detailing information about PE days etc. If you have missed this please let the office know. Please also take a look at the class pages on the website for further information.
Meet the Teacher
You are invited to come into the classrooms to meet your child’s teacher on Tuesday 7th September. Teachers will run two identical sessions so that you are able to attend more than one if you have more than one child:
We are happy to welcome you into the classrooms but ask that you please wear a face covering when inside. Thank you. If you are unable to make the meeting, teachers will be posting the information on their class pages too.
We are currently experiencing some technical difficulties with class emails so please bear with us. Going forward, please keep the following in mind:
It’s wonderful to see the children looking so smart! Thank you. Please continue to send your child in with the correct uniform (winter) and make sure that any hair accessories are green or neutral.
Collection at the end of the day
As more parents are coming into the playground to collect now, please look out for your child’s ‘class line’. This will help teachers to spot parents.
Have a great weekend,
Our extra-curricular school clubs start up w/c Monday 13th September. We have quite a few new ones, some former clubs starting up again and changes to existing clubs so please do look carefully at the information on our web page here. This includes information about how to book. We have after school clubs and some lunchtime clubs too. New information has been added this week so do look out for:
Martial Arts - Y5&6
Little Musketeers Fencing - has moved to Thursday mornings
New French Lunchtime Club for Years 3 - 6 on Tuesdays
New Playball Club for Y1&2 on Fridays
Art Club for Y2 - 6 on Thursdays.
Magpies Clubs - Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
We'll have taster sessions in school assemblies for Martial Arts and Little Musketeers Fencing next week. There'll be more information to come about Netball and School Choir over the next week.
Class 6N Request
Class 6N are looking for a couple of medium to large flexi-buckets (or similar – see below) if anyone has any that they don’t want. Please contact Mrs Neale at email@example.com if you can donate. Many thanks!
