Happy Friday Fair Oak. I hope you are all safe and well.
Let’s start with some exciting news
Over that past few days we have had some work carried out at school – predominantly outside the hall, (please see the attached picture).We will also be having some additional outdoor gym equipment installed. The outdoor gym equipment is very popular with the children and we can’t wait for them to actually be back to play with it all.
At yesterday’s virtual governors meeting, the governors agreed that we would increase our usable outdoor space by laying artificial turf on a part of the school field. Why is this a good idea?
The governors also approved a brand new mini bus! This is really exciting, especially as we will be getting an extra minibus from a generous business donation to the school. We have exciting plans for how these two brand new minibuses can help to support Fair Oak Junior School.
INSET days for next year
Following the Governors meeting, I can now confirm that the INSET days for the 2020/2021 academic year are:
Thursday 3rd Septemer 2020
Friday 4th September 2020
Monday 2nd November 2020
Monday 4th January 2021
Friday 18th June 2021
For children in school now and for those in Year 6
I will be writing to Year 6 parents, Key Worker parents and the parents of children classified as Vulnerable at some point today with details about the 1st of June return to school. Your child may be feeling a bit anxious about school and about not being able to hug their friends, or indeed members of their own family. Mrs came across this video. Whilst we aren't promoting any book, you may want to watch it...
Marking and Feedback
The return of year 6 will mean that I will need teachers teaching in school. This may well have an impact on the level of feedback they are able to give on Purple Mash. Please do bear with us. Also, next week is technically Half Term, therefore I am not expecting my teachers to give feedback during the week.
This week is Mental Health Awareness week and, whilst we are not actively promoting it, there are some fantastic resources available online, should you wish. Click here.
Have a lovely weekend.
