Sherburn Hungate Weekly News - Pre-Year Issue 2018-19
A word from Mr Broom.
I hope you've had a lovely break and have taken the opportunity to spend some quality time as a family. I certainly have and I feel refreshed and ready for the weeks and months ahead.
The team at Sherburn Hungate are really excited about the year ahead and we look forward to welcoming the children back to school on Tuesday morning.
For now, there's a few notes I need to share with you prior to our return to school. See you Tuesday morning at 0840.
For this reason, we're asking all parents to complete the Home/School Agreement form found at the link below. The Agreement includes permissions for technology use and local visits to name a few. Please complete it as soon as possible. Our admin team will continue to send the Agreement to you until we receive a response.
Thank you for your support with this.
Start of Day Routines
School starts at 0840.
Children will line up on the playground with the adult leading their class. This will be the same place that they line up at breaks and lunchtimes so things should settle down quite quickly after the first couple of days.
You can help us by saying goodbye to children by the time they line up.
With the changes to the start of day, we want to be clear on timing.
School starts at 0840 and registration takes place in the first five minutes.
Doors close to classrooms at 0845. After this time, any children arriving are late. They will need to report to the school office to sign in.
End of the School Day
Reception, Year 1 & Year 2 children end the day at 1505.
Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 & Year 6 children end the day at 1510.
At the beginning of the school day, children having school meals will be given three meal choices. A hot meal, a jacket potato meal and a sandwich choice. Each meal choice will provide a balance lunch and will be a set choice. This means that there is likely to be foods on your child's plate that they are unfamiliar with and we will be actively encouraging children to try new things. Your support with this is really important. Thank you.
The Daily Mile & PE
While the children and staff won't be getting changed for the daily mile, we aim to include as much PE as we possibly can do. For this reason, we'd like children to bring a PE kit to school on a Monday and leave it at school until Friday. This means that PE can then happen to fit around the creative curriculum we have planned.
Breaktime Snack Trolley
Correct Uniform & PE Kit
- Black shoes
- Black/Grey Trousers/skirts or Red & White Check Dresses
- White shirt (a smart one with a crisp collar is wise for Year 6 children as they will be wearing a tie)
- Red jumper/cardigan
It's also important that children wear the correct PE kit too. This means that football club shirts aren't part of their PE sportswear.
If we aim to be smart, we need to look smart and it's something we're really good at on the whole at Sherburn Hungate. Thank you again for your support with this.
