Year 6 Routines.
Year 6 start school at 9:00am and finishing at 3:30pm. An adult from the Year 6 team will meet the children at the large gate on George Street. We will then check their temperature using a thermometer to the wrist. When the children arrive in the school building, they will wash their hands and use the hand sanitizer provided. This will be repeated throughout the day.
Mrs Palmer (class teacher), Miss Devlin (student teacher) and Mrs Troop (teaching assistant)
Mrs Troop will deliver PPA on a Tuesday afternoon and Mrs Fixter will deliver Spanish on a Friday afternoon.
PE will be on a Thursday and the children are to come in school on this day in their PE kit: school jumper, plain navy/black/grey jogging trousers or shorts and a plain white/navy/black/grey T-shirt with trainers is expected. PE will be done outside, weather permitting. We will review the additional indoor PE session over the term, alongside government guidelines.
Your child will choose a reading book, from Monday 7th September. When they change their book, they must place it in the quarantine box before they go back into circulation.
Learning and well-being
The main focus for the first half term is to help settle your child back into school after such a long period out of education. There will be many opportunities to share and discuss their lock-down experiences, worries and support with gaps in learning.
Our topic this term is ‘We are going to War time Europe’. We have lots of exciting learning planned across all subjects linked to this topic.
Due to the school following guidelines to ensure the safety of the whole school community, communication will be different to what we are used to with parents/carers. If you have any questions or need to pass on information please do not hesitate to contact me via email: email@example.com and I will get back to you at the nearest opportunity.
Finally, we want to reassure you and your child that it is normal to feel anxious about the return to school. We are doing everything possible to make sure the transition back is as smooth as possible and we know the children will be excited to see their friends and start learning again. Please see the link below to a story about returning to school.
Here at Lovers’ Lane we are continually looking at ways to make learning more accessible and engaging for the children and one of the ways in which we would like to do this is through our use of technology in the classroom. When using technology it can be difficult to capture the work the children do so we would like to set up accounts for the children using an app called Seesaw.
Seesaw (https://web.seesaw.me/), is a secure online journal where students can document and reflect on what they are learning in class. Your child will be able to add the things we work on (including photos, videos, worksheets, drawings and voice recordings) to their Seesaw journal.
In order for your child to use Seesaw, the app needs your child’s name. This is so that teachers are able to assign work and so that your child is able to associate work like their photos, videos or voice recordings with their account. Seesaw only uses this information to provide the service and doesn’t advertise in Seesaw, create profiles of students, or share or sell your child’s personal information or journal content. It only adds their name to the teachers’ class list. You can read more about their strong privacy promises here: https://web.seesaw.me/privacy.
Under an EU law called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in order for your child to use Seesaw, we must get your consent. As a school, we are incredibly excited by the opportunities Seesaw will provide. Its use here at Lovers’ Lane will help us to continue to make the curriculum more exciting and engaging for all children.
You will receive a message by text with a link to a permission form. Please complete this as soon as possible. If you do not have internet access please contact your child’s teacher for a paper permission slip. If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to email me:
