Week Commencing 22nd June 2020

Hello and welcome to another new week, 


I hope you have all had a lovely weekend especially as the sun decided to come back!


Last week in school was fabulous! All the children adapted quickly to the changes and we had a super week of learning and having fun together whilst keeping safe!  It was lovely to see all the children’s smiling faces once again – even from a distance  Well done to you all - my lovely France class! Thank you for all the positive feedback from parents too! 


It was additionally wonderful to see all the children’s home learning sent on Dojo. Thank you for your continued support with this and bearing with me whilst I was teaching in school. 


Just a reminder, as Mrs Houseman’s letter stated on Friday, that if you would like your child to return to school on a full-time basis for the remaining 3 weeks of term, please ring the office by tomorrow (Monday) midday. Please let the office know if your child is having a school dinner or packed lunch. After this, the bubbles will be locked. 


I hope you have another  fantastic week of home learning. To reiterate Mrs Houseman's update, this is a critical time of year, whereby we prepare children for that next stage in their learning journey. Please do continue to engage with our home learning. This will put your child in a better position when they move to year 1. Again, If you would like the learning printing to support your home learning, please send me a message and I will happily get this sorted for you. 


This week is National Sport's Week! It is all about getting active and having fun! Have a go at the challenges below and I would love to see lots of photos of your children taking part! 


Our next Zoom is scheduled for Friday at 10.30am and all details will be again on Class Dojo. I very much look forward to seeing all the children! 


Also, a BIG congratulations is needed for Mr Theo for being our REACH star in our online school assembly. Theo returned to school in such a positive manner and embraced all the changes superbly. A smile was on his face constantly! He showed so much kindness to everyone and tried super hard with all his learning. What a super return Theo! I am super proud of you! I wonder who is going to be our next REACH star? 


I wish you all another fabulous week, especially as I've heard lots of sunshine coming our way!  


Thank you for your continued support. 


Kind regards, Miss Hutchinson.

National Sport’s Week

22nd – 26th June 2020. 

The annual National School Sport Week campaign, celebrates the important role of Physical Education and school sport in enhancing young people’s wellbeing. 


YST National School Sport Week at Home 2020 will give families, communities, schools and sports clubs the opportunity to engage in a series of virtual sporting challenges which help young people capture the enjoyment, competition and camaraderie they are missing out on.


Personal Challenges 


We have set a daily challenge for the children to get active and to enjoy! 


We would love to see videos and photos of the children completing these challenges! 


We have also attached a record sheet that can be edited, if the children want to record their score and at the end of the week, see what their personal best was!

Monday – How long can you dance for to your favourite song? 


Tuesday – How many times can you go and down the stairs? (with grown-up supervision) 


Wednesday – How many laps can you run around the garden in 1 minute? 


Thursday – How many times can you throw and catch a ball without dropping it? 


Friday – How many star jumps can you do in 1 minute? 


Sporting Challenges 


Below, there are a range of Sporting activities attached, that the children can choosechallenge themselves and then capture the memory. 


Again, we would love to see videos and photos of the children completing these challenges! 


Remember GET ACTIVE and ENJOY!!
