Dear Parents, Carers and Families,
RETURN TO SCHOOL FOR RECEPTION, YEAR 1 AND YEAR 6
Week beginning Monday 8th June 2020
It was lovely to see children from Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 children in school this week. They have really impressed us with their positive attitude and hard work, and the way they have picked up the new rules to keep us all safe. Thank you everyone 🙂
Hello again too to all our Abbeyhillians working at home. Your teachers have been impressed by you too – we’ve seen lots of fantastic work. The teachers have been busy making the next work pack which will be ready this week. You can collect it from school when it’s ready (we’ll text you to let you know when) or if it’s tricky to get up to school we can drop it off for you. Keep up the good work if you’re learning at home – we’re very proud of you all, mums, dads and children!
Although school looks different our Abbey Hill staff team is still the same and we’re doing everything we can to keep children safe and well in school.
If your child is at school or is returning this week, please do your bit to help keep everyone safe by following the one way system at the entrance to school and by arriving at the right time for drop off and pick up. This is really important as it means everyone can social distance. This is one of the best ways to keep us all safe and stop the virus spreading.
Just a reminder of what to do when you get to school – parents of Year 6 children should leave them at the main school gate. Parents of Reception and Year 1 children may walk round to the classroom with their children but not come into school.
Thank you for your support and we really look forward to seeing you again this week.
Please also share our child-friendly guide to coming back to school with your child.
Teachers and TAs will carry on ringing your child to check in and have a chat if they are not at school at the moment.
The BBC are providing lessons for free on television, online and through BBC i player. Some famous faces are involved so it may be worth a look.

Also check out your class pages as there is a link to ‘Take Five’ activities which the children are very familiar with. Thanks to Miss Digby for this. Your teachers are adding new activities daily.
Please remember that should you need any advice or if you feel we can help in any way you can contact us through the school office on 01623 484512. School staff will try to answer your calls. If we are unavailable, please leave a message on the answer phone.
Thank you for all your ongoing support at this difficult time
