Help! A Half Term Catch Up

28th May 2020 5 By Mr Simmons

I hope you are all well and enjoying this beautiful weather over half term. Just a quick post this morning with two requests.

Word Mania

The good news is that Cubert is now on the leaderboard.

If you haven’t played on Word Mania this week, please do try to play a few games and see if we can move up the leaderboard. There is still plenty of time as the qualification round carries on until June 19th.

Return to School

The government will announce today if there is the scientific evidence to confirm that it would now be safe to return to school on Monday.

Thank you to everyone who has replied to the email sent out by the school last week so, if schools do open on Monday, we know what numbers we need to plan for.

I can tell you that Curlews will be split into two bubbles (my bubble and Mr Hyde’s bubble) and I am currently trying to sort out the groups with the names of those pupils who have said they will be returning straight away.

I am doing this so that I can make the groups even in size and try to put pupils with their friends. However, I have a problem.

I am still waiting to hear back from a number of pupils from the class and wondered if you could help me (as I know some of you are friends with others online, or your parents are on social media etc.) If you are able to get hold of any of these:

  • Ollie E
  • Agnes
  • Lowan

could you ask them to ask their parent to please let me know if they are hoping to come back straight away, or if they will be staying home because of shielding/isolation concerns. They can leave a comment below (I will not publish it) or email me on or leave a message on ClassDojo.

The better the picture I have of who will be returning and who won’t be coming back straight away, the better I will be able to organise the groups.

Thank you for your help in this.
