September 2020Welcome Back!
September 2020Welcome Back!
We are so pleased to welcome back all of our children. Over summer, we have worked hard to make sure that our school is as safe as we can make it. Please read Mrs Jackson's update from 1/9/20 for information on children returning to school and see the attached flow chart for what to do if your child is unwell.
Summer Support and Transition
We continue to welcome our children back to school. All children have been offered a part-time place in school for the last two weeks of this half term. This is to help transition across all year groups and to support children's wellbeing. In case parents want additional support over the summer holidays, all class teachers have added 'basic skills' letters to their class Seesaw activities. These have been written by your child's current teacher and your child's next teacher and highlight key areas of the curriculum that you may wish to work on over the next few weeks in preparation for September. There is no expectation that you do this work with your child, but it is there if you want it.
In addition, should you want more summer work to recap the current year's objectives, please click here to access free maths and English learning booklets.
