IMPORTANT CHANGE FOR MONDAY 4TH OCTOBER ONLY

Dear families,

 

We have been notified by Sheffield City Council that the footpath which runs between Staniforth Road and Fisher Lane will be closed on Monday 4th October for resurfacing. This will affect families walking along the path and some year groups who are allocated the EYFS gates, arriving to and leaving school on Monday 4th October. Please see the timetable below for some changes we have had to make for this day to ensure a safe and timely arrival and collection of children.

 

If you have any questions, then please contact the school office.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

 

4th October - Change of Gate, drop off and collection times for pupils for 1 day only

 


Its week 3 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y4…………………….

Y4 are really enjoying our geography unit. We started by looking at an eight-point compass and then learnt about how lines of longitude and latitude can help us locate places in the world. As geographers, we were able to label key lines of longitude and latitude on a world map. Next week, we are looking forward to using atlases to look at the political and physical features of South America. 

Its week 3 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y4…………………….

Y4 Swimming Information Every Tuesday

Dear Parent/Carers,

I am writing to inform you that children in Year 4 will be starting swimming lessons as part of their PE curriculum on Tuesday 7th September 2021. Pupils will attend school as normal on Tuesdays and will travel, supervised by school staff, via coach to the Ponds Forge Leisure Centre each week. The swimming sessions will run for 18 weeks until Tuesday 25th January 2022 and will be taught by qualified swimming instructors. The sessions are fully funded by school, and as they are part of the curriculum, all children are expected to participate. If for any reason your child is unwell and unable to participate in a session, please speak to school staff.

For each lesson your child will need to come to school dressed in their swimwear (underneath their school uniform).

They will also need to bring the following:

  • A towel
  • A waterproof bag
  • A change of underwear

Please ensure you follow the guidance below:

  • Your child should not bring or wear any jewellery, including ear piercings. Taping over piercings is not acceptable and will mean your child cannot participate in a swimming session.
  • Long hair must be tied back.
  • The teacher will ensure any medication which has been shared with school is taken with the child’s group. If your child has a medical need such as asthma, this information has been shared with school and an inhaler has been provided.
  • Appropriate swimwear must be worn each week. Please do not send your child in bikinis, shorts below the knee, heavy outdoor clothing or underwear.
  • If your child is required to wear a long sleeve top and leggings, these should be lightweight materials and worn underneath or on top of swimwear.
  • If your child requires goggles, these must be provided by you and you will need to inform your child’s class teacher prior to the first lesson.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.

School Sandwich Menu - Starting 2nd September

Dear Parents/Carers

I am delighted to report that we have had much of the work completed on Junior playground over the summer holidays. However, our kitchen refurbishment will not be completed until end of October. This means that we have had to alter the menu offer for this period. This has been carefully designed to ensure that despite not having a fully functioning kitchen for a few weeks our children get a nutritious, enjoyable, and balanced meal every day. To see the menu for the next two weeks, click on this link.
