*Year 5 Summer Term Home Learning*

Hi everyone,

We hope you’re staying safe and had a restful Easter break.

We should have been starting one of our favourite topics, Alchemy Island, this week. So to save you from missing out on the fun, we have put together a home learning pack related to this topic for you to complete at home.

We are really enjoying your updates via Dojo so please keep them coming!

Missing you all lots and hopefully see you very soon,

Mrs B-J, Miss Cheng and Mrs Jackson x

Free School Meals for Eligible Children

From today, Monday 23 March the Council will be home delivering a free packed lunch to children who attend over 60 borough schools.

This service will be provided Monday – Friday this week for children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) with lunches delivered directly to homes.

Please note that this service is only for those who meet the Free School Meal financial eligibility criteria and not all Key Stage 1 pupils.

This packed lunch service, ensuring those children who need a meal continue to receive one, has been made possible thanks to a number of head-teachers who have agreed for their schools to be distribution points and Council staff, including many whose normal place of work has been closed, working together to pack, transport and deliver lunches.

The first of the 5,500 lunches will be delivered around midday on Monday and a member of the team will simply knock or ring a door bell to let the family know the food has arrived.

This home delivery service is a temporary emergency provision to support families ahead of the National Voucher scheme due to be rolled out across the country.

Unfortunately the Council cannot confirm a delivery time. Consideration has been given to children’s dietary requirements. For children with complex food allergies, the Council will be offering alternative help.
If your child is eligible for a Free School Meal and you do not receive your child’s packed lunch by 2.30pm please call 01952 383858.

The following schools/providers have decided to make alternative arrangements for their pupils and are therefore not included in the Council’s delivery scheme:
•       Bridge School
•       Kickstart
•       Linden Centre
•       Muxton Primary School
•       Newport Girls’ High School Academy
•       Redhill Primary Academy

If you are not currently in receipt of free school meals but are worried your current financial situation may change in the coming weeks, this link gives more information about how to apply for free school meals.

Cllr Shaun Davies, council leader, said: “This will ensure that around 5,000 children who need this help the most can continue to receive it at this very difficult time, while we await the Government’s voucher scheme.
“It’s another way that the Council is helping the community during the coronavirus pandemic on top of a raft of other measures we have already announced to help, residents, businesses and community organisations.

 

Home Learning

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

After much discussion this morning, we have made some changes to our home learning plan due to the differing needs of our year groups. Please see the school website for your child’s year group where you’ll find suggestions of nice activities to do at home. We’d love to see what you’ve been up to so we have created a year group email address that you can send any work to, if you wish. If you need any support with anything, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly on class dojo.

Please look after yourselves and stay safe!

Very best wishes,

Team Wrockers xx
