Hawker Class

Welcome Hawker Class 2020-2021!
 
We've had such a good first fortnight back and it has been wonderful having all of the children in school again. 
 
Start & finish times: 
A reminder about the staggered start and end times.
  • Surname A-K -   8:45am start and 3:00pm finish;
  • Surname L-Z -   8:50am start and 3:05pm finish. 
Please enter through the vehicle gate next to the oil tank and follow the one-way system.
 
Equipment:
We have provided all children with individual stationery packs which contains everything that they will need for their lessons. You do not need to provide anything.
 
Packed lunches:
Please provide these in disposable plastic bags if possible. If not, a washable lunchbox can be used. These will need to hang on your child’s peg outside the classroom. School Meal menus have been sent out by Mrs Higgins. 
 
PE
PE will take place every Friday afternoon and your child should come in wearing their PE kit please. All of our PE lessons will take place outside for the first half term (up ‘till mid October). There is no need to provide additional trainers for the daily Golden Mile but if your child would be more comfortable wearing them, please do send them into school.  
 
Topic:
Our first topic of the year is “Splendid Skies” and is a science-based topic. At the bottom of this page is a Knowledge Organiser, which contains all of the topic-related facts/knowledge that most children will know by the end of the topic. Paper copies of these will be sent home with your child and they will have a copy in school which we will use for teaching and retrieval practice. There is also a Home Learning sheet if you would like to complete this with your child. 

We will be spending a lot of time outside, so please ensure that your child has a waterproof coat and either welly boots or old trainers in school (that you don’t mind getting muddy). If this is difficult for you, please call the school office and leave a message for me and I will call you back.
 
Classroom learning: 
We recognise that these are unprecedented times and that some children may struggle with the return to the classroom. We will support them with this, whatever their need or situation.
We will be giving your child plenty of opportunities to talk about their experiences over the past six months since the start of the National School Closures and “Lockdown”. 
 
Home learning:
At the bottom of the page is a document containing the options for homework choices for the first half-term.
