Dear Parents and Carers,
What a gloriously sunny end to the week. Spring is truly on its way and with it comes a sense of hope that the future for us all will be brighter.
Please see here for today's assembly and to hear about the Stars of the Week.
You will have received a letter from me detailing the return for all pupils on 8th March. We are very happy that we can welcome all pupils back and very much look forward to seeing you all.
The letter contains a lot of detail but please contact the office if you have any further queries.
You will also be receiving a letter from your child’s class teacher with information relevant to their class.
Drop off and pick up arrangements are below:
Friday 5th March will be a Digital Detox Day and your child’s class teacher will be setting some challenges away from screens - look out for more details!
Once again, we look forward to seeing all your faces on Monday 8th!
We noticed some misreporting in the news this week about the return of school clubs. Now that we've received the full government guidelines about school reopening, we can confirm that only clubs associated with wrap-around care can restart from 8th March i.e. Breakfast and After School Clubs. However, we're hopeful that we'll return to a full complement of clubs after Easter.
Please note that winter uniform is to be worn until the Easter Holidays. Summer uniform can be worn thereafter.
Poster from RBWM
Please find below a copy of a poster distributed to schools by RBWM. The poster is about protecting others by following the Covid rules, in particular with regard to avoiding playdates, sleepovers, family gatherings and visitors.
Year 1 Learn About Money
Year one have been learning about money. This week they created their own shop and chose two items to buy to make an addition number sentence. Then they had to decide which coins to use to pay for the items. We received some lovely photos of very inviting shops!
Year 2 Letter Writing Project
In the last week of last term, the Year 2 English project was to write a letter to someone important to influence them on the issues of deforestation. Sam chose to write to Sir David Attenborough, and guess what… he got a reply!
Year 4 Learn about Sukkot
Year 4 learned about the Jewish festival of Sukkot this week and made their own sukkahs.
In class 4 this week, we have been learning about electrical conductors and insulators.
