Weekly Message to Families 26.06.2020

Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope that you have been enjoying the sunshine this week; it has certainly shone for our week’s focus on the Weather!
Useful Links
Thinking about the sunshine and warmer weather, we would like share some keeping safe advice with you in case you visit the beach. Please follow the link to the advice from the RNLI: https://rnli.org/youth-education/water-safety-from-home
The video which introduces next week’s learning theme is already on the school YouTube channel.  Don’t forget there are many other videos for the children to watch – including stories read by members of staff, Praise and Prayer, Feel Good Friday, the Monday Message as well as a weekly Worship lead by Rev. Richard.  The link to this channel is https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGXZrKqe75evH5vgp-Jhp7w?safe=true
The government have also updated their list of online learning providers for home learning and advice on keeping safe online.  To find these updates, follow these links:
Free School Meal Vouchers
You may have heard that the vouchers for those families who are entitled to Free School Meals will continue during the summer holiday.  We will organise this before the end of term so that the vouchers will be available for you.
Share and Shine 
We are setting in place an opportunity for families who have not been in school with us during any of the lockdown period to come in after a school day to catch up with their current class teachers.  This will be organised in families so that you are able to come together.  We are calling this ‘Share and Shine’ because we would love to see some of your favourite activities and learning you have been busy with at home.  These would be held from 3:30pm-4pm at school on Tuesday 7th July, Wednesday 8th July, Thursday 9th July, Tuesday 14th July, Wednesday 15th July and Thursday 16th July. If you and your family would like to come to one of these Share and Shine sessions, please email the school using office2@yaptonschool.org your preferred two dates by the end of the day on Tuesday 30th June. We will then be able to organise safe numbers of families to visit.  We are looking forward to seeing you.

As always, we are here for you if you need anything.  Just phone the school office – 01243 551246 or email office@yaptonschool.org We hope you enjoy engaging in next week’s family learning and look forward to hearing from you in the usual ways.

Take care

Kim Huggett
