Remote Learning Overview Spring Term 2

FIRST DAY BACK! 🌈😊🌈😊🌈😊

 
 

Welcome Back!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Pupils, Parents and Caregivers,

 

First of all, a huge pat on the back is well-deserved for all of your hard work during this first half of our Spring Term. It wasn’t easy at all, but you all did your very best and we couldn’t be prouder of you. Bendigedig!

 

We hope you were able to enjoy your time at home, even though things were difficult at times, the silver lining of being able to spend time with our families is something we’ll all remember.

 

We will return to school on Monday 22nd February, we can’t wait to see you all! We will be working with you to ensure your child is happy, settled and continuing good progress in their learning. We will return to school celebrating Welsh Week, please see below for our Half Term Homework that relates to our Welsh Week activities.

 

Here is some information that you may find helpful for your child's return to school:

 

Start/finish times:

 

  • Our classroom doors will open at 8.40 AM to allow a staggered entry into school and avoid family bubbles mixing and waiting in the yard.
  • Our school day will end at 3:10 PM.
  • Arrival and dismissal will continue from the ‘Outdoor Classroom’ gate as it occurred before Christmas.
  • To ensure all children are collected safely from school we ask that you queue along the path in the school car park and inform us of whom you are collecting. If anyone unfamiliar is going to be collecting your child, could you please let us know beforehand.
  • Drop off and pick up will need to be prompt due to social distancing requirements amongst parents and pupils.

 

The School Day:

 

  • Just like last term, you will hang up your coat and school bag on your peg, put away your lunch box and then you will wash/sanitise your hands before entering the classroom.
  • Once we have sat on the carpet, registered and our bodies have warmed up from the cold outside we’ll take your temperatures.
  • Break times will be as normal at 10.30 AM and 2 PM
  • Lunch time is 11.55 PM – 12.20 PM, lunches are staggered to avoid bubbles mixing as much as possible.
  • Pupils may bring a healthy snack (fruit/water) to school for break times. Milk and an afternoon snack will be provided.

 

A donation of £5 is greatly appreciated to go towards snack and milk for the remainder of the Spring Term.

Learning Bubbles

 

  • Our class will form our own bubble and therefore will not mix with other classes. You will spend your school day in your bubble with your teachers and teaching assistants.
  • Adults will still observe the 2-metre distance rule and will wear facemasks where appropriate around the school building.

 

In the Classroom

 

  • Please can you check your pencil case is restocked with a black pen, writing pencil, ruler, rubber, sharpener, glue stick and colouring pencils. This will help limit transmission. Please label items where possible. They will be sent home on a regular basis to be cleaned and restocked.
  • You may also bring a small notebook/colouring book for rainy day lunchtimes.  
  • P.E. will be on a Monday. Please come to school in your PE kit on a Monday (Starting 8th March – due to Welsh week/St David’s Day). Your child will need to wear black shorts or black joggers/leggings, a House Colour T-Shirt (or plain one in their house colour), school burgundy jumper/cardigan and trainers. Whenever possible PE will be outdoors, so please ensure PE kit is weather appropriate.

 

We will be continuing our topic ‘Going for Gold’ this half term, using the story ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ by Drew Daywalt as a hook and will continue to use the children’s voices and choices to map out our learning. We can’t wait to get back to some form of normality and be back in the classroom with all of you!

 

Lastly, thank you so much for your support over the last few weeks. We understand that this has been tough on both pupils and parents(!) and we are very appreciative of your support and kind words during this very, very odd time!

 

Kind regards,

 

Miss Mac, Mrs Rogers, Mrs Morgan, Mrs Evans and `Mrs `Wells

 

 

Safety Rules to Remember:

• Stay clean. Ensure to wash your hands your hands regularly and use hand sanitisers provided.

• Be hygienic: put tissues in the bin, keep hands off each other; your face and other people’s belongings, cough into sleeve or tissue and wash your hands afterwards.

• Keep a safe distance.

 

 

If you have any concerns or queries, please don't hesitate to ask.

If you could kindly donate £10 per term (Sept - Dec) to cover the cost of the snack provided this would be greatly appreciated. Please send the money in an envelope with your child's name clearly labelled. 

 

If your child receives a dairy alternative, please can you send it in a flask each day.

 

If your child drinks water, can you please provide this in a flask each day also.

29th Sept 2020 - READING

 

Hello again,

 

If you have a school reading book at home please can you send it in, along with the blue reading record book.

 

Unfortunately, we are unable to send reading books back and forth to your home in present circumstances. Of course, we are continuing with reading books and phonic/reading activities in school.

 

It would be very beneficial if you could support your child working through the 'Tricky Word Lists' at home. Also, reading books (and hunting for tricky words in books) that you have at home/online.

 

If you have any queries, please drop us an email. 

 

Thank you for your help and support
