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.  
 
Covid-19 planning:
If your child(ren) have to stay at home because of Covid-related circumstances (self-isolation / family isolation etc.) then you will be able to access school work & learning via Microsoft Teams.
There is a detailed document on how to access the Hawker Class pages and pupil folders at the bottom of this page. Your child was sent home with the user name and password in September but if you need it again, please let me know. 
There is a copy of our class timetable at the top of this page. 
 
You can access the Teams folder here
