Its Week 3 - Lets see what's been happening in Y5..............

It has been wonderful to welcome the children back this week and see so much enthusiasm for learning.

This week it was British Science week. The children have had time to research one of the mini beasts we have looked at. They have included what they look like, what they eat, what their habitat is and how they survive in their habitat. Following the research, we have designed our own bugbot.  They have carefully thought about what materials they need to use. Next week, they will be creating these models.

Important Information Returning to School - Monday 8th March

Dear Parents/Carers

I am writing to inform you about some key arrangements for our school opening on 8th March 2021. You will be already aware of the government's announcement, that all pupils will be expected to attend school from next Monday 8th March. This, I am sure, is very positive news for our whole school community. Attendance will be required at school and will be monitored as it has been in the past. Unauthorised absence will be treated as such and followed up accordingly.

The most up to date Government guidance means several important changes to how the school runs. Most changes remain as per our wider opening of schools in September.  In particular:

● When pupils are in school, they will remain within their class group bubble. We will be avoiding any non-essential mixing of year groups;

● Arrivals, break times, lunchtimes and end of school will be staggered to minimise the interaction between year groups. Late children will be asked to wait at the main gate on Fisher Lane and a member of staff will come to assist when all year groups are in the building;

● Year groups will be separated within the school wherever possible so that pupils have access to a minimal number of classrooms and use of communal areas is strictly controlled;

● All areas of the school will receive more frequent cleaning and there will be hand sanitiser available throughout the school. We will continue to encourage children to wash their hands regularly and promote ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ for any sneezes or coughs;

● Sport and Physical Education will predominantly take place outdoors and contact sports will not be played; pupils will be expected to come to school in their P.E kit on the days they are scheduled to have P.E.  Listed below are allocated PE days for each year group

World Book Day - 4th March 2021

On Thursday 4th March we will be celebrating world book day a bit differently, however it will still be a day where children can celebrate their favourite author and books.

To celebrate this day children can dress up as their favourite book character for their live lessons.  We would really like children to make their own costumes and we will be looking for the most imaginative costume.

We would also like parents to join in, and they can do this by sharing a traditional story that they grew up with.
