Hello Eagles Class.
I hope you are looking forward to returning to school next. We are very much looking forward to seeing you. You may have lots of questions so below I have tried to predict what those questions may be and try to answer them.
What time do I come to school and where do I go to?
There will be a staggered start and end time so the children and parents can socially distance before and after school. The times will range from 8:45 - 9:00 and 3:15 to 3:25.
If your surname is at the beginning of the alphabet (A-M) please aim to arrive from 8:45 to 8:50 and collect from 3:15 and if your surname is towards the end of the alphabet please arrive between 8:55 - 9:00 and collect by 3:25.
The 5 min gap will give those parents who have more than one child the time to visit different drop off points. Your drop off point and the one-way system will be the same as the Autumn term.
All children must be in school by 9am and have left the premises by 3:25pm. The gates will not open until 8:45 so please do not arrive early as this causes congestion especially on School Road where Brewood Middle School parents and children are being dropped off.
We request that only one adult accompanies you to support social distancing and they will need to wear a face covering when picking up and dropping you off.
There will be an activity for you to do in class when you arrive. You will need to follow the one way route shown in the video and come to through the school hall door. The first thing you will need to do is sanitise your hands and then you will then go straight to the classroom. A named chair for your coat is still in the hall.
What do I need to bring?
As little as possible. YOU DO NOT NEED TO BRING A RUCKSACK.
On the first day you will need to bring
- pencil case. See the link page for what you need in your pencil case. Your pencil case will stay in school.
- water bottle
- packed lunch if you are not having a school lunch
What about PE?
We will be doing PE on a Tuesday and Thursday. On these days you will need to wear your PE kit for school all day. You will come to school in your PE kit and go home in your PE kit. You will need to wear a white T-shirt, navy shorts with your school jumper and navy track suit bottoms/leggings or a school tracksuit. Trainers that you can fasten are to be worn on your feet.
What will happen at playtime and lunchtime?
Our playtime will be at 10:45am and we will have a specific area of the playground to play. I will clearly explain this to you on the first day. Your will not be able to mix with other children from other classes but you will be able to play with your classmates. Our lunchtime will be from 12 noon until 1:00pm. You will have your lunch first in the classroom and then have some time playing outside. The area that you have to play will be the same as you have at playtime.
Who will be my teachers and what will the classroom be like?
The classroom will be laid out so you are all facing the front and sitting in twos as it was before Christmas. There are pictures of the classroom on the link page.
We hope this answers some of your questions. You will feel a little nervous and that is completely understandable but we will do our best to help you to feel comfortable and happy.
