General information

PE - Children must bring a PE kit on Thursday afternoons for their sports session otherwise they will not be permitted to participate. Please ensure that PE kits adhere to regulatory uniform – no football strips or brightly coloured footwear.

Homework - will be given on a Friday and is due back on a Thursday.

Uniform - Regulatory school uniform should be worn at all times. Please ensure that your child is suitably dressed for the autumn weather (a warm coat will be needed for colder playtimes).

Water - Please provide your child with a reusable water bottle that can be kept in classrooms, thereby stopping infrequent visits to the cloakroom.

Punctuality - Pupils to be in school promptly for an 8.50am start. 

 

Swimming

Garnet Class will be going swimming on a Tuesday afternoon. The lesson will run from 1.30pm to 2.00pm so children will depart school at lunchtime to ensure plenty of time to walk to the swimming pool.

On Wednesday afternoon Amethyst class will be going swimming. The lessons will run from 2.30pm until 3.00pm so the children will be back slightly late at around 3:45pm.  

The children will need to bring in an appropriate swimming costume/swim shorts, a towel, a swimming hat and goggles (should they need them). Children should bring a plastic bag so as to store wet towels in their rucksacks. We discourage the wearing of jewellery, as it is not allowed in the pool. If children do not have swimming hats, these can be purchased from the swimming pool for £2.50 and please ensure that long hair is tied back.

 

Transition

Very shortly your children will be making the transition to Secondary school. Undoubtedly, this will be an exciting time for them; but we also understand that moving from Primary to Secondary school does cause our pupils to feel some sense of trepidation and anxiety. After all, it is a big step and a significant change for them.

Your child may need to talk through their feelings regarding their move and any anxiety or unease.  The Year 6 team feel that this, along with transition sessions in school will ensure that they feel far better equipped for dealing with transition to Secondary. 


 

Other items

Arts Week will start on Monday the 26th May and the focus will be on Tanzania.

On Friday 30th we will be holding a ‘Big Lunch - The Great Get Together’ in memory of Jo Cox the MP who was killed last year.  Many Great Get Together parties took place at the weekend in celebration of Jo’s belief that we have more in common so let’s celebrate unity.
