Hello Everyone!
Welcome to Blakehill Primary School. We have loved meeting you all at your transition visit morning session with your grown up. It was lovely to spend the time talking to you and your parent. We found out what you like to do and we hope to fulfill lots of your interests over the next year as part of your learning. 
It has been a very strange time over the last few months but we really hope you will feel safe, happy and confident here with us.
Below is a little bit of information regarding reading and PE.

Reading Books


Children all have a reading diary and reading book which comes home in their book bag each day. Please note, your child will only be able to take a book home if they have their book bag in school. We encourage children to read at home each night. When your child has read at home can you sign and date their diary and write a comment so that we know how they are finding their reading at home. When children have had their diary signed at home they receive a sticker in school which they can then put onto their reading sticker chart.  When 35 stickers have been collected children will receive a certificate in assembly.

Hygiene Routines
As a result of Covid-19, we will be following government guidance to keep pupils and adults as safe as possible in school. This will include: staggered start and end times; virtual assemblies; pupils remaining in year group bubbles and pupils being reminded to wash and sanitise their hands regularly. 




Outdoor PE takes place every Friday morning.

Following the guidance provided regarding COVID, PE lessons will be delivered outdoors as much as possible. At the present time we are asking you to ensure your child comes to school dressed ready for PE on the Friday. They will not need to bring their uniform to change into on this day. 

As we approach Autumn we are heading into the cooler months, therefore all children will need long navy jogging bottoms, a white PE T-shirt and a warm black or blue jumper/zip-up hoodie to keep them warm throughout the winter months. Children will also need suitable trainers too, please make sure these are velcro fastening rather than laces. 

Please note: Your child will need to come dressed in their PE clothes every Friday from Friday 25th September 2020.



Entry / Exit procedures

It is important that pupils arrive at school on time and we would ask that all pupils in Reception are in our playground and ready to come into school at 8.45am. Please bear with us at the end of the day, 3:15pm, as we see pupils out. Please also let us know if your child is being collected by a different adult or is attending extra club. 

Please see ‘A Guide for Parents’, sent via email by Mrs. Keighley, for more information regarding the arrangements for Reception drop offs and pick ups.
