Please please please ensure your child reads regularly during the week. They should be aiming to read every day at home and (usually) twice a week there will be set reading homework linked to the class novel - if they don't keep up with this then they will find the lessons in school difficult. Please support your child at home to help them catch up - especially following such a long time out of school. Thank you.
Welcome to Class 6!
For some of you, it has been quite a while since you were in school!
When you arrive in the morning, please line up (Mr Crocker will show you where) and make sure you are socially distanced in the line.
We will start at 8.45 and be letting you into school in groups of 5. Home time is 3.15.
You will need to bring a water bottle please and your PE kit.
You may bring a pencil case but we have provided you with the usual basic stationery - your pencil case should be able to fit in your drawer and will need to stay in school please.
Below is a booklet all about school "bubbles" - you can have a read as it will prepare you, especially if you haven't been into school at all since the beginning of lock down.
Tomorrow we will have plenty of opportunities to chat about how you are feeling and also normal school routines. Mrs Ward and I are really looking forward to seeing you all!
