Y4 Info

We trust you have had a healthy and happy summer. We are greatly looking forward to welcoming back your child to school next week and we want to reiterate some of the key information you need to know that should ensure a successful start on Thursday 3rd September.

 Start time

Parents/carers and pupils of Year 4 are allowed on site from 8.40am and should follow the one-way, clockwise system around the school site. Children should go straight to the classroom/pod door indicated below, where a staff member will be waiting to welcome them.

 

4CK – Mrs Cornforth and Mrs Kuma

4H – Mrs Hollick and Mr McIntosh

4W – Mr Williams

Y4 pod door (nearest pod to Year 6 classrooms)

4H external door (opposite the Barn)

Toilet block door next to the wall in the Hill playground

 

Parents/carers should continue to observe the one-way system by walking clockwise around the rest of the main school building and exit the site.

All children must be in class by 8.50am, when doors will close and the register will be taken. Anyone arriving late must enter via the office and will receive a late mark.

 End time

Parents may come onto site from 3.05pm. 4CK and 4H parents/carers should wait on the Barn playground and 4W parents/carers on the Hill playground away from any PE lesson that might be taking place. Please ensure you maintain a distance of at least 2m from any other family. Children will come out at 3.10pm and we ask that you leave the site immediately as all Year 4 parents and pupils must have exited by 3.20pm.

Everyone must continue to observe the one-way system. Some Year 5 and Year 6 PE lessons may be taking place on the Hill playground and we ask that you walk well away from the lesson area.

Lunch

Pupils may bring a packed lunch or parents/carers can pay for them to have a school dinner via ParentPay for £2.20. A new menu is available to view on our website: https://www.barnesfarmjuniors.co.uk/web/school_meals/440206

 What is needed

  •          Full uniform is expected. Please ensure it is all named.
  •          PE kit is not needed in the first two days. Your class teacher will tell you what days it will be on so that the children can come in their kit on those days.
  •          A refillable, named water bottle.
  •          A healthy break time snack and personal sanitiser gel are optional.
  •          A personal set of colouring pencils in a pencil case would be helpful but children will be given a set if they do not have their own. All other stationery will be provided.

 

Updated and additional information relating to how the school will operate at this time can be found in a new section of our website and we ask that you please check this before school starts on Thursday 3rd September: https://www.barnesfarmjuniors.co.uk/web/covid-19_info/503142

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Mr R McIntosh

Deputy Headteacher
