If you are working online, don’t forget to be safe and savvy! 

Never give personal information to anyone! Think about the safety of what you are sharing or posting if you are online or on your phone.

Do not share your school log-ins or change your log-in details. We won’t ask you to do that.

Make sure you are accessing online material that is relevant for your age and tell an adult at home if you come across something that is not suitable for you, or if someone is trying to contact/talk to you that is not someone you know.

You can contact your teacher through Seesaw if you feel vulnerable or worried, or contact Childline 0800 1111.

We will also be rehearsing a production which we hope to share with the parents in the last week of term called 'Troy Story'.

P.E.

I am delighted that our team of professional coaches will be leading Oak Class's PE lesson every Wednesday afternoon and a representative from Lancashire Cricket Club Friday mornings. 

 

Your child can come dressed to school in their PE kit on a Wednesday and a Friday. It would be a good idea to check the weather forecast so they can dress appropriately. (No football kits allowed.) 

 

For safety reasons, long hair should be tied back for PE and earrings either removed or taped over for safety (tape is supplied by school). 

 

Do not forget to check out the school's Twitter page for regular updates and information.
