Hello Year 6,

I hope you’ve had a great weekend.

If you have confirmed your place to return to school this week, we look forward to welcoming you back on Thursday 18th June. As you are aware, many changes have been made to minimise risks and keep us all as safe as possible.  Parents/Carers, please make sure that you have read all of the information on the ‘School Closure’ page http://lsj.org.uk/school-closure/ detailing our ‘Return to School’ plans and talk through the relevant information with your child before Thursday.

Our on-line education page will continue to be updated each Monday to support your home learning. You can contact me through Purple Mash and I’d love to receive examples of your work and hear about the fun things you’ve been up to.

Also, remember to keep checking the high school websites for updates on transition.

Have a good week.

Mrs D
