Happy Sunday everyone!
I hope you are having a great weekend and enjoying the May sunshine. Let’s hope this kind of weather continues for us during Activities Week.
We spoke about our plans on Friday in class, but I thought I would put a rough rundown of the week below so that you have a reminder of what to bring on each day.
Different activities are planned for each day and you will be told the daily schedule each morning in class after register and lunches are taken. Please remember that all COVID procedures are still in place, and we will be returning to class before each break and lunch to wash hands.
Breaktimes and lunchtimes will be the same as normal (excluding Thursday), so lunch arrangements are the same as always – packed lunch, school meal, or home lunch. If you are going home for lunch, please ensure that a parent or guardian rings the office to let us know.
Activities Week will be a uniform free week. I advise you to wear older clothes/shoes or clothes/shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty as we will be spending most of the week outdoors. Please remember to come prepared for all types of weather and bring a waterproof jacket in case of rain. Water bottles can also be brought to school.
There will be no homework this week.
Each day (excluding Thursday), we will be participating in 3 activities. One on the field, one on the pitch and one in the classroom. Activities will be a mixture of team challenges, physical challenges, games, arts and crafts, nature-based learning and STEM tasks.
Monday: Nothing additional required
Tuesday: Nothing additional required
Wednesday: Please bring your pencil case (pens, colouring pens/pencils), although you will have access to your crayons etc in class. Please bring a plastic bag.
Thursday: We will visit Finlaystone on Thursday. The cost of this is £4.50 and can be paid through Parent Pay. Please bring a packed lunch in a plastic or paper bag. Remember to bring a face covering to wear on the bus to and from Finlaystone. We will leave school at 9am and should return around 2.30pm. We will remain in class until the 3.15pm release time.
Friday: Lunchtime is as normal (packed lunch/school meal/home lunch). We will be celebrating the end of our week with a pizza and movie afternoon. We will provide pizza and juice. You may bring one additional snack to enjoy as we watch the movie. No fizzy juice please. All dietary requirements should already be noted on your EV5 form.
I am really looking forward to spending time with you all and let’s look forward to a fun filled week!
See you all tomorrow!
Miss Cauley and P7 teachers.
