Dear Parents

We really encourage you and your children to be in touch with us – we are available to answer any queries about the home learning and would love to hear all about what you are getting up to at home while you’re not in school!

*NEW* Term 6 from 8th June:

The Home Learning Teams will be the point of contact for you and your child during the day/ to give
personalised feedback:
Kath Williams                    Y5 Class 7  kwilliams@yattonschools.co.uk (Mon/Tue /Wed/ Thur)
Nina Lilley                           Y5 Class 8 nLilley@yattonschools.co.uk      (Mon/Tue)

You can still contact your class teacher who will only be able to answer emails between 3.30pm -4.30pm daily (due to teaching commitment).

Please note: if children wish to email members of staff they must do so under parent supervision through their parent’s email – staff will not be able to reply to children’s personal email addresses if they have them. We’d love to hear from them, though!

MORFA BAY UPDATE – 19th May

Dear Y5 Parents – you should already be aware from a previous email that, with great sadness, we have made the decision not to take up our booking for the Morfa Bay Residential Visit due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation and its associated uncertainties and anxieties. If you have paid money towards this visit you should very soon be receiving a full refund. We will be trying to provide some sort of alternative experience for the children later on in Y6 as circumstances allow.

Our Christian Value at the moment is: Courage. Christians believe that God is present with them in every situation. Through faith and prayer, many people have found the strength to be courageous when facing challenges, fears and dangers.

Bible story: 1 Samuel 17: David and Goliath – listen to the story and watch the animation here:  David and Goliath BBC assemblies
