Information - Term 1

Hello and welcome back! I know the staff in year 6 this year have been eager to get this term up and running, and we are thoroughly looking forward to the year ahead. As you probably already know, the set up around schools currently is slightly different to what we are used to. As a school, we are doing our upmost to ensure the safety and wellbeing of children. With this in mind, we are using the first 2 weeks of this term to focus on the wellbeing of children. This includes playing games, looking at strategies to help control our feelings, and looking at different ways we can share how we feel. After this, we intend to try and bring some normality back to the classroom and get back to teaching our full curriculum.

Important Information for this term:

PE:

  • Every Monday afternoon we shall have a session with a specialist PE coach. This means that children have to bring in the appropriate PE kit. PE lessons will be outdoors and therefore appropriate clothing will be required. This means as well as shorts and t-shirt, children may want to bring in jogging bottoms and an appropriate jumper. On Monday afternoons, children shall leave school wearing their PE kits. This allows them the opportunity to get them washed and returned before the following week’s PE slot
  • Homework:
    • In the coming weeks, children shall be provided with a username and password so they can logon to Microsoft Teams. All children in Year 6 are already set up in a class team. From here, children are able to obtain homework set for them. As well as this, they are able to upload completed homework on here so that it can be looking at and marked.

Hygiene

  • In year 6, children become increasingly aware of themselves and the people they are surrounded by. With this in mind, it may be that your child wants to bring in a roll on deodorant that can be applied whenever they feel necessary. Historically, we have allowed children to do this, which has made them feel far more comfortable, particularly in higher temperatures.

 

If you have any questions or you have to contact me for any reason, feel free to speak to me after school. Alternatively, you can contact me at enquiries@bardney.lincs.sch.uk where all emails shall be passed to me directly.
