Week beginning 13.7.20


I hope you’re all safe and well.

This is our final week of the year and as such will be my final upload of work before Summer. I will put a final message on at the end of next week however.

I am looking forward to catching up with you if you are coming to our ‘Keeping in Touch’ sessions on Tuesday 14th July. We will be able to chat, catch up and I have a couple of nice activities planned for us. Here’s hoping the weather stays nice and dry.

Take care,

Mr McKenzie.

Keeping in Touch (KIT) day – 14.7.20

As Mr Waddington has poste earlier this week, we are holding some brief 90 minute sessions for the year groups unable to return to school fully this academic year. Please drop your child off at the Key Stage 2 playground gate and pick them up from the same location. If your child is in the Key Worker group, they can join us from there. Please adhere to social distancing guidelines when dropping off/collecting your child.

I have emailed this week detailing what group your child is in. We cannot change these groups.

Group A session will begin at 10.00am and will finish at 11.30am

Group B session will begin at 1.30pm and will finish at 3.00pm

Please be aware that if the weather is poor on the day, we may have to split the groups again so that our KIT session  can take place in the gazebo. You will be notified of this on the morning of our KIT day.

Thank you.

Children could use the internet, books or other sources of information to find out more about the perspectives described on the Earth Guardians sheet. In the space provided, children should write a bullet-point list of the responsibilities for the environment that they feel are most important as global citizens.

Discuss and share your opinions.

Try to do a French activity from the French Learning Pack at least once/twice a week, or more often if you like!
