Friday 11th September 2020

We have an enjoyable first full week back. We have spent time completing getting to know you activities, learning socially distanced games and reminding ourselves of the routines and expectations for Upper Key Stage Two. In addition, the children have been working very hard to prepare their speeches for the upcoming house captain elections. 

The children have been very enthusiastic about taking part in the daily mile each morning. They now have a grid so they can keep a record of how many laps they have completed during each session and, once completed, we are looking forward to giving out certificates to recognise their achievements.

Important Notices

  • Please ensure your child has a fruit snack to eat following the daily mile each morning.
  • Entries for the ‘Caught Reading in an Unusual Place’ challenge close on Monday, so please send in our email your child’s entry by then. (You can find more information in our new home learning section.)
