Mendham Primary School

Sycamore Class

Dear Parents/Carers.

It is wonderful to have your children back in school, even if it seems a little different to normal.

I have included a little insight as to what Sycamore class will be like.

The children will enter through the front gate where there will sanitise their hands and have their temperature checked before entering the school building. Arrival time is between 8:20 and 8:30 am. They will be seated with a partner and the tables will be positioned in rows, facing the front of the class.

Lessons will begin at 8:40-9:40 and then we will have a 15 minute break. The second session runs from 9:55 until 11:55. This will include a ‘brain break’ between lessons. There will then be another break time and the children will eat their lunches in the classroom before having another short break before returning for the afternoon session. This will consist of PSHE (personal, social, health and education) and well-being activities to help settle the children back into school life. The day will finish with an assembly in the class. The children should then be collected from the front gate outside the school. This is a flexible timetable and could change, depending on the guidance received from the Government.

Children will need to bring with them a water bottle. This will stay in school and be washed through the dishwasher each day.

Mrs Tilley will take the children for P.E on a Friday afternoon. Children need to have their P.E kits brought into school. These will remain in school unless they become wet/dirty and need to go home to be washed. There may be times when the children will return home in their P.E kits on a Friday afternoon.

Planners- For the time being there will be no planners sent home.

Homework- Homework, which will be times tables and spellings, will start to be set through Google classrooms once the platform is re-organised to accommodate all new pupils and staff.

I hope that the information is helpful, but if you require any further information or have any queries please feel free to email.

Yours sincerely

Mr Sam Norfolk
