Teddy Bear’s Picnic
This morning we held a socially distanced teddy bear’s picnic on the school field for the new starter parents and their children. It was so much fun to see the children in their school environment with their peers.
Thank you to everyone who came!
See you all soon 🙂
Virtual Class Swap Day 2020
Due to current circumstances we have been unable to provide our usual transition between nursery and school so we thought we would make a class swap day video for the children to see their new teachers and teaching assistants who will be in their class come September.
New Starter Meeting – Friday 3rd July 2020
Thank you to all of you that attended our socially distanced, outdoor new starter meeting. Despite the weather it still went ahead and it was great to meet you all and share the information that your child needs to start school on Wednesday 2nd September 2020.
As said at the meeting; class 1’s bubble will start at 8:45am and finish at 3:00pm. Parents will not be allowed on site and will need to continue to queue along the green gate until your Mrs Morton or Mrs Plant come out to greet your children. Clubs will not start for Class 1 until after the Autumn term. More updates on this will be given in due course.
Please complete all of the data forms in the brown pack and return to the school office as soon as possible, alongside your child’s birth certificate that we can take a copy of.
Your child’s essentials for their first day back at school are:
- School book bag – for educational books and learning resources,
- PE Bag – to be left on their peg with PE clothes in; shorts, white T-shirt and trainers,
Teddy Bear’s Picnic & Parents Meetings
Dear Parents/ Carers,
This is the time that we would usually be preparing for your children’s transition visits, but because of this unusual situation that we find ourselves in due to the coronavirus, we cannot organise things in our normal way. However, we do understand that starting a new school is a very exciting but nervous time for everyone, so have decided to put some things in place to make this a little less worrying for you all.
Weather permitting, we would like to invite you to 2 events outdoors on our school field to provide you with more information about your child starting school, as well as the opportunity to meet your child’s teachers and support staff, as well as the head teacher, before September.
- Friday 3rd July 10:00am – Parents Meeting
(1 parent / carer is invited to a short meeting outdoors on the field to discuss important information regarding your child starting school – no children to this event. Chairs will be placed on the field to adhere social distancing guidelines at all times.)
- Wednesday 8th July 10:00am – Teddy Bears Picnic
(1 parent / carer is invited to come along with their child to have a picnic. Parents must supervise their own child at all times and adhere to the social distancing guidelines and bring along their own snacks / food / drinks for the picnic. Mats will be situated appropriately on the field for each parent and child to sit on. Play equipment is out of bounds for the morning due to current circumstances)
For both of these dates, we are only permitting 1 parent to attend. Please see out school website for the risk assessments that we will be adhering to throughout the visits. If the weather is forecast to rain, we will ring or email you the day before to cancel the event as it will NOT be able to take place indoors. On arrival, we will expect you to queue along the outer green gate, following the 2 metre social distancing guidelines all the way down – there will be 2 cones out setting off this queue. When 10:00am arrives Miss Grant (Morton) will lead you around the outside of the building to access the field, where both events will be taking place.
If you have any queries, then please do not hesitate to email me on email@example.com.
Miss Grant (Morton)
