We are still following many of the same routines like applying hand sanitiser every time we enter and exit the classroom and at all different points throughout the day. We are cleaning down the tables and bathrooms at several points also.
Our mornings in Year 5 and 6 are long as lunch starts at 12.30pm, therefore can we ask you to send a snack or piece of fruit in for morning break, to ensure the children’s stomachs aren’t rumbling by lunchtime? Thank you.
Year 5 and 6 have PE lessons each Tuesday and Friday therefore need to arrive in school in the correct kit on these days, thank you.

Theory and Music appreciation
Previously, throughout the year children often bought in sweets to celebrate their birthdays with peers. As we are unable to encourage this can we suggest that children celebrate their birthday in a slightly different way? Instead of sending in a sweet treat it would not only be cheaper but easier to purchase a book to send in and share with the class. This would be donated to the school and we will add a book template outlining the donation and take a photo to add to our school Twitter page. This book would be added to the class library and promotes reading in a really positive way. There is no obligation to do this but we would like you to think about it as an alternative instead of sweets and if you are able to support the class library with this gesture – we would very much appreciate it!
Homework was distributed on Friday 3rd September and is due on Tuesday 12th October – please encourage your child to start as soon as possible. Home Learning in UKS2 consists of:
