We hope that you have all had a safe and rewarding time with your families during the summer break; we are really looking forward to returning as we have missed you all! We realise that the last six months will have been different for everyone and want to reassure you that we will be doing our best to make your time back at Firs as safe and familiar as possible. Miss Turner and Mr. Leigh have made thorough checks and changes to the school in order to make it as safe a learning environment as possible for us all. We understand that it has been a challenging time for children and grown-ups and the well-being of our children is particularly important to us. For the first few weeks of getting used to the changes around school, we will also be spending time talking about our feelings with our aim of children overcoming any wobbles we have over returning to school and to instil a positive mindset to the year ahead! It will be a priority for us to catch up with learning which has been missed during lockdown and continue having fun with our learning throughout the year.
This will be the final year our Year 6 pupils will be with us and we aim to ensure that all the children continue to achieve their potential in Year 6 through growing their brains, making beautiful oopses and seeing wobbles as a positive way to learn from. Remember... practise makes MORE perfect!
Make sure you follow @firsprimarysale and search @Year6KP to keep track on all the fun activites and interesting work we produce each week!
What a strange time we all find ourselves in! I hope you are all taking advantage of the extra family time you have and are trying out some new games, instruments and skills to impress everyone at home. Myself, Mrs. Nolan and Mrs. Gilbert are missing you all very much and are sad we don't get to see you all each day.
Remember that as well as spending valuable time with family and having a well-deserved Easter break (make sure you eat ALL the chocolate btw), you try and get yourselves into a routine that includes some home-learning. Have a look at the suggested home-learning timetable as it might help give you some ideas and you have the Year 6 CGP books for maths and reading, as well as all of your login details for Mathletics, Bug Club, Coding and Spag! There is also a fun home-learning project about out amazing city of Manchester on the class page full of different tasks that will keep you busy.
Completing just a small amount each day will go along way before we all go back to normality! I'm looking forward to the day that I can see you all once more! Stay safe everybody. I'd love to see the fantastic work you complete, so please send it to me on firstname.lastname@example.org
