Key Information for Spring Term
School will reopen for all pupils on Monday 8th March 2021. Whilst we will do our utmost to provide as safe an environment for pupils as we can, we remain in an unprecedented situation. We aim to be very clear and honest about what provision will look like to support families.
Children should wear full uniform and black school shoes each day unless they have PE or Forest School, in which case, they should arrive wearing their kit. They will remain in their kit all day.
Children should not need to bring pencil cases, PE kits or other personal items to school.
Children should bring a water bottle with their name marked on it.
Children will be in their class groups and will stay in their class groups for the day, including break and lunch times.
Children will be provided with their own stationery for use in school.
Children will eat lunch in their classrooms and enjoy a play session outside. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will be provided with a free meal at lunchtime.
School meals for children in Year 3 – 6 can be paid for via School Gateway as normal unless eligible for free school meals.
There will be a choice of hot food and sandwiches each day.
Staff will encourage hand hygiene and positive hygiene practices throughout the day.
Each week children will receive Maths and English homework. It will normally be set on a Thursday and should be returned to school the following Tuesday to be marked. If your child is finding any part of it difficult, please ask their Class Teacher who will be happy to help.
Children in Year 3 should be reading at home for a short time every day. Regular practise really helps them to become confident readers. Children will be responsible for choosing their own books.
Useful Websites for Additional Learning
Children will have PE twice a week. Your child will need a full PE kit from the beginning of the academic year. The PE kit is normally kept in school on the children’s peg and sent home at the end of every half-term to be washed, however during the Spring Term, children are asked to wear their kit to school due to the measures we are taking to minimise the risk of coronavirus on the premises. Please see the timetable below to check when your child should wear their appropriate sport wear to school.
Year 2 – 6 children will have PE outdoors and therefore will need to wear their outdoor PE kit to school. They do not need to bring their school uniform to school. In warm weather, children can wear black/navy shorts and a plain white t-shirt. In cooler weather, children can wear grey/navy/black leggings/jogging or tracksuit bottoms, a warm top plus a waterproof coat (no football shirts or multi-coloured kits).
Year 3 children also have swimming lessons. A letter will be sent home to give details of when they start. They are usually over a period of 10-12 weeks. Your child will require an appropriate swimming costume, a swimming cap and googles if needed, and a towel.
Children will have a series of Forest School sessions during the term. Your child will need suitable outdoor clothing such as a named waterproof coat, hat, gloves and wellington boots from the beginning of the academic year. Children are to wear appropriate outdoor clothes to school (not their uniform) for the whole day, bringing an additional pair of shoes to wear indoors. Please see timetable above.
