The children have adapted really well this week to some of the new routines we have put into place ready for them returning to school. The safety and well-being of the whole school community is our utmost priority. I would like to draw your attention to the key procedures below.
Our topic this term is ‘Spies and Superhumans’. We will be kicking off our topic by exploring the story ‘Skellig’ by David Almond. During our first few days back, we have thought about the skills and qualities a spy needs, come up with our own secret identity.
In History, we will look at the secrets of the codebreakers during World War II at Bletchley Park. In Geography, we will use Digimaps to improve our mapping skills. Furthermore, our Science will be focussed around properties of materials and we might even design and make our own protective case for a spy gadget.
As we are sadly unable to plan any trips and visits, we would love to hear of any trips or visits that you go on to supports your children’s learning. Please ask if you’d like suggestions.
We are planning to have PE lessons on a Wednesday and Friday. As the hall cannot be used, we will largely be having our PE lessons outside.
Pupils will need tracksuit bottoms, a sweatshirt, a plain t-shirt in their house colour and, trainers. Long hair should be tied back and earrings taken out or covered for PE. PE kits should be sent with your child on a Monday and we will send them home on a Friday.
For the foreseeable future, homework (including spellings) will be set through eSchools. We will spend time this week ensuring children are confident in using eSchools and know how to log on. If you do have internet issues, please let us know so we can try and sort a solution.
