We would like to welcome everyone back to school this September, including some new pupils; we hope you find the transition to Longborough smooth and our warm and welcoming village community are pleased to have you join us.
You will have received a letter (via email) about our new school arrangements regarding preventive measures for Covid-19, including staggered start times and different locations for drop off and pick up. The whole school risk assessment is also available to view on the parent page. If you have any concerns or queries regarding this, please email Mrs Oliver our administrator on: email@example.com. Please ring if you need a response more urgently: 01451 830097.
There will be a few obvious changes in class, with desks facing forwards and some resources still not able to be used, but hopefully in time we can return to small group work as the situation develops.
We will be using the downstairs cloakrooms; leaving our PE kits and book bags on our pegs and placing lunch boxes (if having a packed lunch) on the lunchbox trolley. You will bring your reading book and recording record, water bottle and coat into the classroom. Break-times will be spent outside on the field, so wellies will be required to stay in school during the week to avoid ruining all your new school shoes! Please ensure that no toys from home are brought into school.
PE will be taught by Mr Daldry along with Reception on Thursday afternoons and Mrs Swayne will continue to teach Forest School on a Friday afternoon.
Our value this term is THANKFULNESS and we certainly are, that we can at last have you all back in school. Hopefully the lock-down has highlighted to us all what we are thankful for in our lives.
I am very much looking forward to having you all back and hearing about what you have been up to over the summer break. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Mrs Kelly Hobkirk
As a reward for filling our class marble jar we enjoyed an afternoon all based around books, reading and story telling. The classroom was full of excitement and it was wonderful to see the children enjoying all of the activities, from making story characters from playdough, sharing their favourite books with a friend to creating an oral story using story telling cards.
We had fun practising our counting of natural objects such as flowers and
