Week beginning 19th April
We look forward to welcoming the children back to school this week and hope that you all had a lovely Easter break.
The Government guidance for schools has not changed since the return to school on March 8th, so we will continue under our current risk assessment. Although numbers of positive cases have fallen significantly, please continue to follow both Government and School protocols to ensure we keep the whole community as safe as possible.
We will be broadening our curriculum for the Summer term and children in key stage one will begin with a topic called, ‘Food Glorious Food’. They will be learning about healthy eating and making the most of the school allotment to grow vegetables.
As the term progresses, we will let you know how the transition to Junior school will be managed to support the year two children as best we can in the current situation.
Those of you who have children starting school with us in September, we will be watching guidance carefully to see how we are able to welcome you and the children to the school later in the term.
We will be welcoming Mrs Payton-Butcher back to school and she will be supporting children in Reception. Mr Robert Gill is looking forward to teaching Mouse Class for the rest of this year. Mr Grant Smith will be moving to a new job in the next few weeks, and I am sure you would join me in thanking him for all his work to keep the premises safe and tidy over the last few years.
