Letter to Parents from Mrs McBeth 5.2.21

Friday 5th February 2021

Dear Parents/Carers,


We have now come to the end of what seems to have been a very long week! Clearly not all helped by the miserable weather. Let’s hope for an improvement next week.


On a brighter note I hope you and all of the children have all enjoyed the Mental Health Activities which have been set this week. We have certainly had a very positive response to them and also thank you for all of your Feel Good Friday photographs, please keep them coming. We have even heard that parents are recommending our Friday activities to other schools!


Next week there will also be another change to the work set at home and at school. We are planning Around the World with Jarrow Cross! Each year group will be given a country to research, take part in virtual tours and create fact files etc. We hope that yourselves and the children will enjoy the change in format and it will be a nice run up to the half term holidays. The only other work set alongside this will be phonics and spellings.


The countries covered will be:

Reception - China (to link with Chinese New Year)

Year 1 – America

Year 2- France

Year 3- Italy

Year 4/5 – Greece

Year 6 – India


Also just to inform you that from Monday onwards all of the children in Years 3-6 will be receiving a story book, a new exercise book and some squared paper for maths work. It will be delivered out early next week in readiness for the start of next term, as all of the Literacy work for the first two weeks will be based around the book which you receive. Watch out for yet another home delivery!  Also inside the pack will be Online Guidance for Parents and Pupils in reference to any online live sessions which may be planned for the forthcoming weeks.


Regarding the Free School Meal Vouchers for the half term holidays for those children who are attending school, vouchers will be available to be picked up from the office from Wednesday and for those children who are at home they will be posted out. Further information will be sent by text.


Have a good weekend and take care,


Mrs McBeth
