Wolverhampton is now subject to national Tier 2 (high level) restrictions in relation to Covid-19 infections. To help keep stay safe over the half term break follow the 5 things!
Children in Year 6 have been designing, cutting and printing in art. They have also been learning all about static electricity in science.
Our first virtual merit assembly, World Smile Day, Golden Ticket Winners and Harvest Competition Winners!
Year 4 enjoyed finding out about where our food comes from, but the best part of all was eating it!
We also looked at different types of foods, the processes needed to change food into what we eat as well as designing a new food bag.
A busy, but fun day of learning was had by all.
Year 6 LOVED our special Harvest Celebration Day! We learnt so much about Harvest and where our food comes from, got crafty with nature and enjoyed a delicious lunch!
We would like to send a huge ‘THANK YOU!’ to Wednesfield Rotary Club for their wonderful donation of £500 which has allowed us to purchase brand new thesauruses for both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 and also a set of beautifully illustrated Spanish dictionaries for all of the pupils across school to use.
The children are thrilled and very, very grateful!
We hope you are all safe and well.
Unfortunately, due to COVID 19 we have been unable to deliver the transition parents' meetings and sessions within school that we would normally have. To help the children's transition from Reception to Year 1 in September, teaching staff have made a selection of information slides to explain routines and procedures in Year 1.
What a strange few weeks it has been as we all try to adapt to a different way of living! However, it has been really lovely seeing some of the children back in school and I know teachers have enjoyed their phone calls with families and hearing about all the lovely things that the children have been doing at home.
We are now trying to turn our attention to plans for the end term, summer holidays and of course how things may ‘look’ in September.
The summer term will end on Friday 17th July and from this point on, the home learning will no longer be provided as we hope the children and their families will be able to enjoy a rest without the additional stress of completing work. You have all done an amazing job over the last few months and we appreciate that this will have brought its highs and lows.
We have also made the decision that this year, we will be unable to offer any form of summer provision for the children. This is due to low staffing numbers and maintenance work that includes new roofs and heating systems that need to be carried out over the break without children in school buildings. We realise this may be a challenge for some families who will have child-care implications, hence we are trying to provide you with sufficient time to enable you to make alternative arrangements.
We are now beginning to devise our plans for September as we are looking forward to welcoming all the children back into school. However, we are not yet in a position to share these plans as we are still awaiting further guidance from the government. Hopefully, we will be able to include a further update for families, alongside your children’s reports which will be sent out by post on Friday 10th July.
Should there be any further changes following the end of term, these will then be shared via the website.
Thank you for your continued support during these challenging times.
