Hello everyone - we would just like to make you aware of the changes we have made to the planning for the last two weeks. We appreciate that many of you will be spending one morning a week at school catching up with your friends and teachers and this may mean that you will be left with less time to complete the tasks set at home. For this reason we have decided to set aside 1 day a week for you to catch up with/finish off work and to participate in tasks linked to Health and Wellbeing. We are calling this day FEEL GOOD FRIDAY. We hope you enjoy the tasks we set you for the next two Fridays! You do not have to complete them on a Friday if you are completing other tasks, you can do them whenever you want to. It just gives you some flexibility and extra time to participate in the weekly tasks at home.
We would also like to say that throughout the week we will be busy at school with the children, participating in teacher training sessions and preparing for September. This will mean that our responses to your work on Seesaw will be slower and less detailed.
Please bear with us while we get used to the new way of doing things!
Year 1 were little superstars coming into school last week and we are really looking forward to seeing them again this week. It was great to chat to the children that didn’t come in on the phone too and we will give them another call for one final ‘catch-up’. We really cannot believe that it’s the last week of term already - we are sad that we haven’t been able to spend the whole year with you in school Year 1 - you have been fantastic at home though so well done!
This week the teachers have arranged some non-contact, socially distanced ‘Sports Day’ events and challenges and will be keeping a total of the points collected for each house throughout the week. The winning house will be announced on Thursday. Please, if possible, send your child into school wearing their house colour next week.
If you would like to take part at home then send us a video of your child doing the event (or a similar one) and we will award the house points for their house! Don’t forget to tell us what house colour they are. Please see below for the events that Year 1 will be participating in.
This week we will be focusing on:
‘Sports Day’ events/sporting challenges with a competitive element!
Structured and unstructured time to play and chat to their friends and teachers.
A chance to share some things to introduce themselves to their next teacher.
**We will also be sending the children’s school books home with them along with any display work. If your child is not in school, we will give their books etc to their next teacher and they can take them home in September.
Thank you once again for your support this year!
