Latest News and Information
Extreme Read Competition:
Our Extreme Read competition has been extended until next Friday, 26 June. We are enjoying seeing some of the more unusual places children have chosen to read and can’t wait to share a few more with you on our Facebook page. Please email your photograph, along with a brief summary of the book they are enjoying, to Mr Gittins: firstname.lastname@example.org Prizes will be announced the following week.
Coming Up Next Week:
We welcome back our Year 6 pupils for two weeks and we plan on using this time to end their journey through primary education, look forward to the challenges of secondary school and bid a farewell to them all, celebrating their successes and achievements.
Our Early Years Team will be adding a video to the school website and Facebook page on Friday afternoon. Their ‘virtual tour’ will show the classrooms that children will be working in when they return on Monday 29 June. Please share this with your child as a way of preparation – the room their bubble is allocated may not be the one they left in March!
Family Quiz Night: Wednesday at 5.30pm
Mrs Squires is all set to host her family quiz on Zoom next Wednesday; login and password details will be sent out via email prior to the event. Only the first 100 participants will be admitted, so don’t be late!
Key Worker Provision:
Our Key Worker provision has grown to its maximum capacity, particularly as we welcome back children from other year groups. Booking forms for the last two weeks of term will be released next week and we urge parents to only use this provision if you a critical worker and it is a necessity. From next week, all booking forms and enquiries will need to be emailed to email@example.com
In the week commencing 29 June, we will see the number of pupils attending school rise significantly, with the introduction of our Reception children. Therefore, in order for us to adequately clean all areas of school, as well as all the equipment used, we require extra time to allow teachers to carry out this role. We understand and appreciate that this has caused great inconvenience to some parents. However, it is important that we are sufficiently able to maintain hygiene levels across the school for all staff and pupils. If you are a key worker and you are experiencing difficulties in organising childcare for the three Wednesdays in July, please get in touch with Mr Hargreaves and he will contact the local authority to see if there are any spaces available in other local schools.
A Thought for the Day!
Our journey through difficult times continues and every week we face new challenges and new changes. Sometimes we can become overwhelmed by all of this and become focused on the little things; the difficult things. Instead, let our minds look to utilising this time for doing the best we can, in the best way we can.
“So be very careful how you live. Do not live like those who are not wise. Live wisely. You should use every chance you have for doing good, because these are evil times.” Ephesians 5:15-16
