Key Stage 2 Summer News Broughton Primary School

Croeso! Welcome!

Welcome to the Key Stage 2 summer newsletter. It has been brilliant being able to welcome all the children back after the Easter holidays. Each class has settled back in really well and are all enjoying their topics. Our summer term newsletter will give you a bit more information about what we’ve got planned for this term and what the children will learning about.

We are continuing to work in our ‘bubbles’ to keep everyone safe. This does mean we are still coming to school in PE kit on PE days, not bringing unneccessary items into school, and making sure we socially distance and handwash. I would value your support in following these guidelines when around school, particularly following the one way system, socially distancing and using the paths provided in the car park.

Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to seeing you over the course of the summer term - Mr Elliott.

Accessibility

We have been working hard at Broughton to utilise technology and make the curriculum more accessible to our whole school community. We have created a more accessible version of this newsletter which has Immersive Reader built in. Immersive Reader is a free tool that implements proven techniques to improve reading for people, regardless of their age or ability. Immersive Reader is particularity useful for dyslexia and English language learners (children and adults).

Topic

Our topics got off to an exciting start last week! Year 3 saw the opening of a theme park, Year 4 attended a music festival and Year 5/6 had a virtual visit from Tomos Roberts, the author of The Great Realisation!

Alongside these topics, the children will be working through their Maths Mastery, Language lessons, Welsh, PE and RE. We’ll keep you updated via Seesaw on how the children are getting on. As with each topic that we deliver we give the children ownership of their learning and they decide what they would like to learn about.

Day one of our topics!

National tests & reporting to parents

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we will not be participating in the annual Welsh Government National Tests.

We will still send out reports to parents as normal to give a overview of your child's progress this year.

Please continue to support us in reducing and eradicate the spread of COVID

  • Ensure you wear a face covering at all times when on school site.
  • Continue to adhere to socially distancing guidelines, avoiding any gathering with other adults.
  • Keep your children with you at all times.
  • Only one adult to drop off and collect to reduce the number of adults on site.
  • Leave the school site as quickly as possible once you dropped off or collected your child.

BLENDED LEARNING

In the event of your child having to self isolate for an extended period of time (10-14 days) they should access Google classroom using their Hwb log in. There is a spreadsheet with list of activities of the children can access covering a wide range of topics - called isolation tasks.

If a whole year group or department has to self isolate children should access Google classroom and there will be regularly updated activities for the children to complete.
