Mendham Primary School

Sycamore Class

Dear Parents/Carers.

Welcome back to the final summer term! I hope everyone had a restful break and enjoyed the sunshine! We have some exciting learning ahead as we look forward to Sycamore’s Enterprise, as well as enjoying the last few weeks together with our year 6 children before they begin their new journeys onto secondary school.

The children will still continue to 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 and registration with be between 8:30 and 8:40.

With the weather getting warmer, it is important that the children bring a water bottle with them each day. Please ensure that if your child has long hair that it is tied up when they come into school.

P.E. Children will now have P.E on a Friday morning. Children should come into school dressed in their P.E kits and bring their school uniform with them to change into afterwards. Year 6 children will have swimming for the last 4 weeks of term, whilst year 5 children will continue to have P.E.

Wellies or footwear for the school field if it is wet- Hopefully the weather will continue to improve and the children will not need their wellies on the school field for break times. However, there may be days when it has rained and the children will need appropriate footwear to go on the field.

Forest schools- Sycamore will have forest schools on Wednesday afternoon so they will need to make sure they have appropriate clothing to be outside and waterproofs if possible.

The school will maintain social distancing where possible and everyone will be advised to wash their hands more regularly to maintain good levels of hygiene. The classrooms will continue to be well ventilated and any items brought in from home should still be kept to minimum.

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

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
