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.
