School Update: Information for Year R Parents, Keyworker Parents and Year 2 Parents

Dear Parents and Carers 


If your child is in Year R or you have requested a keyworker space please check your emails today as there will either be an email from myself or Miss Turner explaining what to do and where to go if we start back on June 1st. It will look different to the school we left, but I am sure our fantastic staff will help your children understand the new 'normal' in school at the moment.


Thank you to all the Year R parents who have let us know their intentions on coming back to school. Your kind words and messages were so lovely. We have tried our best to support and help keep learning fun through the lockdown and it is lovely to know how much it has been appreciated. I will pass your good wishes on to the staff too.


Now for our lovely Year 2 children. We understand that this would have been our term where we would be getting ready to say goodbye to you. We are ever hopeful we will see you again soon. We would like to do something special for you. Usually, we buy a book as a leaving present. This time we would like to make a special Year Book, with photographs and writing from you and we need you to help. Please can you ALL do the following to help us?


By Friday 5th June can you please email the Year 2 teachers:

1. A really lovely picture of yourself (just you in the photograph)

2. A photograph or scan of a short piece of writing telling us your favourite memories about being at school.  It can include something about your teachers, your learning, your friend or even me. We want it to be in your lovely handwriting (not typed) so your mummies and daddies may need to help you to make sure it is your best piece.


We have lots of other pictures we can put in as well. We will be putting it altogether ready for the end of term. 


We will let you know after the government announcement if Monday 1st June is happening, so please watch this space. Now go and enjoy this lovely sunshine!


With best wishes


Mrs Riches
