Welcome Back Year 4!


We are so excited to welcome the children back on Monday after such a long time apart! 

There are a few things we wanted to make you aware of:

Timings:

Start of day: 8:30am - children can go straight to their classrooms to start their early morning activity. Our literacy lesson will start promptly at 8:45am, so please make sure the children are in class by 8:40am at the latest, as every minute of learning counts.

End of day: 3:05pm - please make sure all parents are standing on their child's coloured spot to collect their child (as before). 

Birch - Blue

Ash - Yellow

Larch - Red

We do encourage you to wear masks on the playground, if you are able to, and to socially distance as much as possible to keep everyone safe.

On Wednesdays, we are continuing with Wellbeing Wednesday, so there is an earlier collection time of 12:55pm after the children have had their lunch.

This will ensure that we can do a deep clean of the school and will allow teachers to have their statutory planning time, that won't be disruptive for the children's learning. 

If you are a working parent we are offering a place at school for that afternoon, where your child will complete wellbeing activities with support staff.

PE

As we are ending our day earlier on a Wednesday, we have moved our PE day to Monday. This will be from the first day back (Monday 8th March), so please send the children into school in their PE kits, as before.

Equipment/ Books

All routines will remain the same as before. To avoid additional risk, please do not send the children in with any of their own equipment/ stationery. The children will be provided with everything they need at school. All children will receive new reading books on the first day back, along with their spellings. Please make sure the children bring in their reading records and spellings books on the first day back, if they are not already in school. If children have misplaced these items, please ask them to let us know and we can provide them with new ones to have for the rest of the year. 

Borrowed Devices

All devices will now need to be returned to school, so that children can use them in school. To ensure this is done in a safe, controlled manner and enable all the necessary paperwork to be completed, please bring the loaned device (and charger/case) back to the school office  on Tuesday 9th March.

Please do not send the device in with your child as the paperwork must be signed by the adult to ensure liability is transferred back to the school. 

Engagement League - Party

As year 4 were the winners of our online engagement league, we are really excited to announce that we will be celebrating together on Thursday afternoon. We have a few special treats lined up for the children!
