Autumn Term Return to School Arrangements for Year 6 Children

Please note that school will be closed to pupils on Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd September 2020 for staff training. To help prevent the spread of Coronavirus we recommend that adults wear a protective face mask and we thank you for your support and cooperation.

  • Children who are in Year 6 will attend school from 1.10pm -3.10pm on Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th September. Parents will drop their children at the main gate, where they will be met by Mr Coats.

With effect from Monday 7th September 2020 – To prevent bubbles from crossing as much as possible, we will be staggering drop off and collection times for each class for the foreseeable future.  However, to make this as simple for parents as possible, siblings can be dropped off as a group and collected as a group if required. 

  • Year 6 pupils and their siblings will be dropped at the main playground gate at 8:55am.
  • Year 6 pupils and their younger siblings will be collected from the main playground gate at 3.00pm.

 

To support working parents, we will be offering a free wraparound care service from 7:30am-5.00pm on both Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th September.  There will be limited places available to maintain bubbles, and these will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.  Please only request these places if absolutely necessary, and contact the school office as soon as possible no later than Tuesday 1st September 2020..

Hi Year 6, I hope you are all well. Just to let you know that I have emailed everyone on their Purple Mash account  and you can use that to email me, or others in year 6.

I have received some great examples of work that you have been producing via the school email (infoatsttwilfrids@gmail.com) and I look forward to seeing what you have been up to. There have been some very creative ideas!

Keep up your daily reading and if you have any good book recommendations let us know via Purple Mash email.

As you will know, the government announced yesterday that schools will be closed from Friday due to Covid-19 until further notice. But don’t despair, In year 6, we have been focusing on our independent learning skills and we have provided the children with work packs to keep them busy. They have been researching a variety of educational websites to keep their up their skills.

We will be setting work on purple mash and Education city. Please encourage your child to keep reading – all kinds of texts: stories, recipes, football programmes, magazines etc. There is also Bug Club which has a great selection of books. These are set at an appropriate level and also include questions for comprehension skills.

There is also TT rockstars which is a fantastic resource to practise maths skills and challenge friends and even teachers!

Year 6 SATs will not take place in May.

This is a great opportunity for children to learn about things that they are particularly interested in: cooking, music, history, computing, art and craft projects etc.

We will share websites with great ideas for continued learning. Keep posted…
