We have made up a pack of resources for the children who are learning at home with some basic phonics, number and play-doh resources. If you would like to pick a pack up please can you bring a carrier bag to the Nursery door. We will then put all the resources in your carrier bag and give you it back.
You can come any time between 10-2 over the next 3 days.
Firstly, I would like to say that I am delighted and honoured to be appointed as the new Headteacher for Myton Park Primary. It was wonderful to see the children today, excited for the new term and to see friends. Visiting all of the classes and seeing them hard at work, the children at Myton Park are an absolute credit.
Following the Government announcement tonight, school will be closed to all children tomorrow. All learning will be provided remotely. We will use this day to organise our plan and will be in touch with you all about key worker and vulnerable children. School will reopen for these children only from Wednesday 6th January 2021. All other children will be educated remotely.
This is not the first letter I envisaged sending as your new Headteacher and I can only apologise for contacting you at this late hour. This is not our preferred option; we would rather children were in school but as we know this is a rapidly changing situation and we must play our part. Over the weeks to come I am looking forward to getting to know parents as well as the children. For now though, I will keep in regular contact to ensure you are all updated.
We hope you have had a good Christmas break and ready for the New Year. 2021 will feel much like 2020 with restrictions in place and school procedures continuing to provide additional covid-security in class bubbles and with staggered timings.
Like me, you will have heard in the news about some primaries closing.
Myton Park will be re-opening for all children tomorrow morning.
At Myton Park we have robust working practices and clear risk assessments which have evolved and been revised on a regular basis. We will continue in all established working practices which have proved effective last term. Please wear a face covering when on site, children will be washing their hands on a very frequent basis and social distancing will be in operation as much as possible. Please also be aware that there is a great emphasis on ensuring plenty of ventilation allowing fresh air into indoor spaces, please ensure your child is wearing warm clothing. This is especially important now there are cold temperatures outside and classroom windows will be open.
We are grateful for your support and your cooperation in these challenging times. Hopefully, with vaccines on the horizon, 2021 will eventually see us return to a greater degree of normality. However, it is clear we have some difficult weeks ahead.
We look forward to seeing you in the morning.
Congratulations green team who are house point winners for this term. All children in the green team may wear non uniform tomorrow as a reward.
Just a reminder for those children who have a birthday during December- we are looking forward to celebrating our Myton Park birthday party on Friday with you all. Each birthday child will receive a cupcake and they can wear their own clothes for the day.
Parents of birthday children please email me to confirm any dietary requirements (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Although we reminded children to take belongings home, we have had some clothing and shoes left behind. We will give those items to children on Monday.
The last day of this term is Friday 18th December 20. The children return to school after the Christmas holidays on Monday 4th January 21.
On Friday 13th November, we will be celebrating Children in Need. We ask that all children attend school in spotty clothing and bring £1, which will be donated to the aforementioned charity. There will also be a ‘Guess how many Sweets’ competition, allowing children to guess how many sweets are in a jar. This competition will be 50p a turn.
Any questions or queries please see myself or Mrs. Roberts.
Mr. Lamb and Mrs. Roberts
