Transition

We hope you are all safe and well.

Unfortunately, due to COVID 19 we have been unable to deliver the transition parents' meetings and sessions within school that we would normally have. To help the children's transition from Reception to Year 1 in September, teaching staff have made a selection of information slides to explain routines and procedures in Year 1.

What a strange few weeks it has been as we all try to adapt to a different way of living!  However, it has been really lovely seeing some of the children back in school and I know teachers have enjoyed their phone calls with families and hearing about all the lovely things that the children have been doing at home. 

We are now trying to turn our attention to plans for the end term, summer holidays and of course how things may ‘look’ in September. 

The summer term will end on Friday 17th July and from this point on, the home learning will no longer be provided as we hope the children and their families will be able to enjoy a rest without the additional stress of completing work.  You have all done an amazing job over the last few months and we appreciate that this will have brought its highs and lows.

We have also made the decision that this year, we will be unable to offer any form of summer provision for the children. This is due to low staffing numbers and maintenance work that includes new roofs and heating systems that need to be carried out over the break without children in school buildings. We realise this may be a challenge for some families who will have child-care implications, hence we are trying to provide you with sufficient time to enable you to make alternative arrangements.

We are now beginning to devise our plans for September as we are looking forward to welcoming all the children back into school. However, we are not yet in a position to share these plans as we are still awaiting further guidance from the government.  Hopefully, we will be able to include a further update for families, alongside your children’s reports which will be sent out by post on Friday 10th July.  

Should there be any further changes following the end of term, these will then be shared via the website.

Thank you for your continued support during these challenging times.

 

The closing date to register for the Girl's High entrance test is Friday 3rd July.

The Summer Reading Challenge is a free reading for pleasure programme designed for children between the ages of 4 and 11.

Usually, the Challenge takes place in libraries across the country. This year, with the disruption caused by COVID-19 and the impact of social distancing on schools and public libraries, the all-new digital Summer Reading Challenge has launched earlier than usual to support parents and carers with children at home. 
 
The theme for the Challenge is "Silly Squad"- a celebration of funny books, happiness and laughter, featuring bespoke artwork from award-winning children's author and illustrator, Laura Ellen Anderson.

CLICK HERE for the website which is free to access and a place for children to rate and review their books and work towards their reading goal. It will also feature video content, games, quizzes and digital and downloadable activities to incentivise and encourage children and their families to take part in the Challenge at home.

It's free, local and inclusive
 
  •  The Summer Reading Challenge is inclusive of all primary school aged children and all stages of reading development
  •  It's free to take part - families can sign up by visiting the Summer Reading Challenge website and can access e-books and audio books for free via their local library service until the libraries open fully.
     
  • Children set a personal reading goal at the beginning of their Challenge and receive digital incentives along the way when they log their books on the website to encourage them. There's a digital certificate for everyone who finishes the Challenge


So, log on, sign up and take part in this amazing challenge! Share your certificates with us in school so we can celebrate your reading success. 😊
