Dates for your Diary
19.4.21 Back to school
28.5.21 Break up for Half Term (1 week)
Welcome back to class 8!
What a strange time we have had recently! The world is a different place than a few months ago, and at school we know that you may have some worries and anxieties about returning full time. But don't worry! We will do our very best to make the transition as simple and smooth as possible! We are all in this together and we need to lean on and support one another.
In class 8, we will be working hard throughout the year to consolidate all of our previous learning, push ourselves to reach our goals and have lots of fun learning new things! Each morning we will start with the register and 'Active in 5', this will be followed by Reading Plus. Our first lesson will usually be maths followed by times tables and English after break time. Afternoons will begin with handwriting practice then topic lessons.
Our days will be jam-packed but full of opportunities for learning, reflecting and developing our lovely squishy brains!
For PE sessions, remember your full PE kits (plain white t-shirt, plain/dark shorts/leggings/pants and trainers or plimsolls). These kits must be taken home regularly to be washed and earrings and watches must be removed.
As it is getting warmer and sunnier, we will be spending more time outside. We recommend that children make sure they have sunscreen on before coming to school and bring a hat with them for break times.
