Message to Pupils
We are so excited to be able to welcome you back in to school and we are all looking forward to seeing your lovely faces again! We have been away from the school building for a long time and a lot has changed in the world since we left it in March. School will feel a little bit different and the way we do things will have to be a little bit different from what we are used to for now. We know that change can be a little bit scary but we will help each other get used to the changes.
What will school be like?
- There will only be a small group of children in your class with you.
- You will be in school for a shorter amount of time.
- We will have to keep 2 metres apart from other people.
- Although we will all really want to give each other a big hug we won’t be able to – we’ll have to share big smiles and waves instead.
- We will have to wash our hands regularly.
- You will keep your coat in the classroom with you. Please don’t bring a bag.
- You will have your lunch at home but you can bring a piece of fruit as a snack.
- You will walk on the left side of the corridor. There will be a colourful strip to ensure that you stay on your side of the corridor.
- You will have lots of opportunities for outside learning, which will be fun!
- Everyone will be given a bag containing crayons and pencils, this bag will only be for you to use.
What will I have to do?
- When you come to school in the morning you will say goodbye to your grown up at the entrance door designated for your class.
- Your teacher will be at the entrance door to greet you.
- Your teacher will help you learn the new rules in the classroom.
- At home time, your teacher will take you back to the door that you came through to meet your grown.
What won’t change?
- You will still be a very important part of the Malpas Court family.
- The adults in school will still help you and look after you and keep you safe.
- You will still be able to go to the toilet when you need to.
- You will still have fun and get to see some of your friends.
- You will still learn a lot and get help with your work.
- If you are worried about anything you can still tell an adult in school.
