Due to the current situation, we are unable to hold our normal Harvest Festival in October. Instead, each class will be having their own assembly and discussions around Harvest within their class bubbles; they will share this on the website for parents to see. We feel it is still important to support our local food bank in Trafford and are therefore asking for donations of harvest produce once again. In order to obtain a variety of food, we would like to suggest that each class brings in:
3CC – Biscuits / Chocolate
3JW – Soup
4RO – Tinned Fruit
4SM – Tinned Vegetables
5ER – Pasta / Rice
5TW – Tinned Fish / Meat
6CR – Tea
6MS – Squash / Cordials
Cardboard boxes will be located at the school gate each morning during the week commencing the 5th October and we would ask children to place any items in these boxes as they enter the playground; if the weather is poor, we will put a box inside each door entrance. We are not asking for any donations of money this year. We would like to thank you in advance for your kind donations.

It is so lovely to have all the children back in school today; they've all settled back into school life remarkably well and are adapting to our new routines and safety procedures. There are copies of our updated risk assessments below, which will give you an insight into the extra precautions we are taking, in line with guidance from the Department for Education.
As most parents will be aware, we usually hold a Meet the Teacher event in mid-September where parents have the opportunity to come and meet their child's class teacher. Unfortunately, these will not run as normal, due to the current situation, but we will be holding Meet the Teachers events via Zoom during the week commencing the 21st September; further information will be sent out in due course.
We are currently reviewing our Homework Policy, in line with the current situation. Therefore, no homework will be set for the first two weeks of this term. Further information about the changes to this will be shared at the Meet the Teacher events.

Over the past two weeks all the children in school have competed in a mini sports day within their bubbles to earn points for their houses. Although it was not the same as having the whole school on the field with family and friends watching.

The results are as follows:
1st: Massey (393 points)

Yesterday afternoon, Mr Smith held an open afternoon to introduce 'The Den' to parents.

We are very excited that he will be delivering his interventions after February half term. If you do have any questions about this, please contact the school office.
Today is our "Safer Internet day." We have all been exploring the idea of online identity and how we can ensure we use the internet safely. We have used assemblies, in class quizzes and in our computing lessons to break down different scenarios we might face online and how best to avoid risks.
