Welcome back to a new school year, I hope you have all enjoyed a lovely summer break and had the opportunity to catch up with family and friends safely. As we all know we are still in the midst of the pandemic and although things are easing we still need to stay safe and healthy. Some measures put in place last year will continue as will be explained in the school newsletter.
We will, of course, be beginning with lessons BUT for the first days (at least) we will be concentrating on settling the children in, getting used to new routines, catching up with friends and ensuring a really positive start to Y2.
As before if you need to speak to myself or one of the other adults in the classroom please contact the school to arrange a time for a telephone 'meeting'. I will always be available if you have any concerns.
There will be a Y2 newsletter soon - but these are just a few reminders for Fox Cubs Class.
PE - Tuesday and Thursday (weather permitting for outdoor lessons)
Your child will need PE kit AND shoes appropriate for outdoor PE - shorts, T-shirt, joggers and a long-sleeved top with plimsolls or trainers (if they bring trainers they MUST be able to get them on and off independently - tying their own laces, please).
Spelling test is on a Friday
Please note at present we will not be having Golden time every Friday for half an hour - BUT it will be replaced by a 'Golden afternoon' at the end of each term. Children will be able to use toys and equipment in school but WILL NOT be allowed to bring in toys from home - due to Covid 19.
We are really looking forward to welcoming you back to our Hawthorn Tree family on Monday.
Mrs Jenkins, Mrs Orrey and Mrs Freiston.
