Well done to the lovely 5/6’s who are adding to our phase Padlet of book recommendations! I know this has been so helpful for your classmates, allowing them to select a book based on their interests all thanks to those of you who are reviewing your books! It is great to see so many of you reading at home in addition to participating in your live lessons and work! So a huge well done for me and please keep it up!
The winner of the book review of the week will be announced this Friday during the yellow t-shirt assembly so please keep reading and keep reviewing!
It has been great to see so many people online both checking in and joining the online lessons. We had a guest presenter today – Mrs Haycock. She was really impressed with your enthusiasm and work that you sent in. I have seen some great art work so I thought I would share! This is Ksawery’s and William D’s. Keep logging on Year 5 and keep learning 😉
Get your party clothes on this Friday my lovely lot to join our virtual disco during Plover praise time. This is for both children in school and at home! Plover praise time will start at 2pm! I’m so excited to celebrate the end of an awesome week of learning!
Have your circumstances changed? You may be entitled to Free School Meals.
If your child is in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, they have automatically received school meals when they were in school this year, but now we are back to learning from home, you may need to apply for Free School Meals, in order to qualify for the food vouchers to use in supermarkets.
If your child is in Year 3,4, 5 or 6 and your situation has changed, you may also be able to receive Free School Meals for your child.
Have a look at the list below and visit the DMBC website to apply if you are eligible.
The process is quick and you can find out straight away.
Please contact school if you need support in applying and we will be happy to help.
