HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a healthy and relaxing break.

Information update:

  • PE days are now Tuesday and Thursday for P7. Children should come dressed for PE indoors or outdoors.
  • Packed lunches – due to a slight tightening of Covid restrictions within school, children in P7 can no longer buy a school dinner. Therefore, pupils should bring their own packed lunch from home once more. Children will eat this in the classroom.
  • Clothing – Please come to school dressed in layers than can be taken off/put on easily in class. In our efforts to keep rooms well ventilated, we will continue to have windows and doors open as much as possible.  All classes have a CO2 monitor too.
  • A letter about current Covid procedures should have been received.
  • Next week, I will post more information about P7s curriculum this term and news about Chromebooks that each pupil will receive soon.

That’s all for now,

Miss S Brunt

P7 Info W/B 20th December 2021

Hi all,

The final few days of term are upon us!

PE – Monday and Wednesday.

The last three days will consist of finishing previous work/projects; a final Zoom  assembly on Wednesday; online pantos; watching the class song recordings; Christmas card making & crafts. We will prepare and organise for next term. We will tidy our trays out and send work home, if appropriate.

For obvious reasons, we are being extra vigilant with hand sanitising and room ventilation. The latter often means that windows and doors are open so children may wear extra layers or coats in class if they wish.

***School finishes on Wednesday 22nd December at 3:15 pm. Pupils resume Tuesday 11th January 2022.*** 

I hope everyone has a safe, happy and healthy time and see you all in 2022!

Miss S Brunt
