What a few weeks!
What a busy few weeks it has been since all of the children returned to the school. There's been lots of learning going on as well as children getting back used to the school routines. It has been lovely to see all of the children back in school every day.
Thank you for your support during this time. Obviously sometimes it can be very difficult to organise things in the current climate but we are always looking at ways to make sure that they happen where possible.
We will keep you informed of any dates and updates as we know them with an extended list after the Easter break. We are looking at ways as to how we can celebrate with our Year 6 children as well as our usual annual events.
Reading at home
After the Easter holidays, we will be taking part in the DRET10 challenge. This is where we want as many of our children (and staff) to read at least ten books in the summer term.
It is an expectation that children read for approximately ten minutes per day at home, five times per week as part of their homework. After the holiday, we will be sharing a link where reading can be logged using a Google Form rather than a reading diary coming home. This means that the record of your child reading will go straight to the class teacher and there is no worry about lost reading records!
We will share the link in every newsletter so that you can easily find this. It is also here for you to access via the QR code or the following link; https://forms.gle/LfxPkvTiq5kBrc3z6
As well as this, we will also be launching our writer of the fortnight. Each phase will look at the books of a different author every two weeks and may come across some new books that they might be interested in!
We are also in the process of further developing our school studio to become a multi-purpose room which will be a rehearsal room for our school choir as well as a library. Once it is set up, children will have the opportunity to visit during the school day as well as on certain days after school to swap books!
My child at school app.
Thank you to everyone who has recently installed the My child at school app. We are sending out more notifications using this method so please make sure you download it if you haven't already done so.
If you need help with this, visit the school office who will set it up for you.
