Welcome to the Robins
Now that the government have clarified which year groups will be returning to school, we can now offer 4 days (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) to the Robins. Mrs Fensom's 'bubble' group will come into school through the black door and be working in the school hall. Mrs Tyler's 'bubble' group will go down to the Robin's classroom. We will have different play times. Please can all Robins wear their P.E. kit on a Thursday.
Please can you send in a piece of fruit for morning snack time.
Just to confirm there are no more 'zoom' Friday sessions unless your child is staying at home and not returning to school for the four days.
Here are a few helpful videos for parents below-
