What a year!

A big thank you to everyone who attended today’s family lunch. We hope you had a lovely, sunny time!

We would also like to say a big thank you for your support at home over the last year. It really is appreciated by the team. Here is a selection of photos that show some of the fun we have had this year. Good luck in key stage 2!

Family Lunch

Dear Parents / Carers,

We are looking forward to welcoming you into school for the family lunch today. Please remember it is not compulsory! We are suggesting that if you have mobility or underlying health conditions that perhaps you do not attend this time (we will be continuing family lunches next year!).

Times – 

Nursery Family Lunch will start at 11.10am

School Family Lunch will start at 11.30am

Please remember to bring your own water, sun lotion and hats. We are suggesting umbrellas as a means to shade yourself whilst outside.

Parents and children are welcome to eat lunch indoors or find a shady spot outside.

The temperature is peaking around 2pm today, so we are going to allow parents to take children home after lunch to avoid parents having to make a double trip in the extreme heat.

Clearly, all staff will remain on site all day so do not worry if you are either not attending the lunch, or plan to pick up at normal time.

Keeping cool in the sun

Mighty Oaks have been keeping cool in the sun by staying safe in the shade. We have been exploring the forest school area and playing with the water trays. We’ve spoken about ways to keep safe and we’re pleased to hear them suggest the slip, slap, slop method.

Please remember your child’s water bottle and hats.

Update

18.7.22

Dear Parents/Carers,

We are constantly monitoring the weather apps and adapting our offer accordingly.

As the peak has remained at 3 – 4 o’clock, we are cancelling the Crossbar outdoor football club today and tomorrow.

All classrooms will remain open at play and lunchtime to provide shade. We are also opening up forest school which has fabulous natural shade. Mr Thomas is busy putting up our gazebos to increase our shade options.

We are going ahead with our family lunch but may bring the times forward a touch. More information to follow. We do suggest that you bring in an umbrella if you have one, as these will offer you some shade. Please don’t arrive way in advance as of course, that would leave you waiting outside in the sunshine for longer than is necessary.

Staff are aware of the need for extra precautions and will ensure all children in their care drink plenty of water etc

Just when we think the massive pressures of Covid have left us, mother nature hits us with another challenge to deal with.

As ever, we will do our very best for our school community.

Year 6 Treat

Year 6 had a busy afternoon in the sun! They enjoyed delicious pizzas from Pizza Hut, followed by ice cream, signing their leavers books and dancing with friends.

They have all worked incredibly hard this year and we can’t wait for you to see them perform next week, you are in for a treat!
