Important information for transition to Secondary School

We are receiving information via email from secondary schools regarding transition. As we are unable to send letters out via the children at the moment, we are therefore asking for you to provide an email address to which we can send the relevant information. Please can parents and carers send an email to sam.penberthy@hunsletstmarys.co.uk stating their name and the name of their child.

This information will be shared internally between members of staff at St Mary's Primary Academy in order to facilitate communication. If you are happy for us to pass the email address on to the secondary school for their use, please indicate this in your email to Mr Penberthy.
Phased return to school details- Year 6 

The year group specific details for the phased return of year 6 to school next week are layed out in the documents below. Please read the instructions carefully so that you are clear of what is expected, times of arrival and departure, gates to use etc. Please remember to provide a named water bottle as requested. You will receive a text message stating which group your child is in.

**It is important to remember that your child should NOT attend school if they or members of the family are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19-
  1. a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  2. a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  3. a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

***If you change your decision on whether to allow your children to return to school in June, please let us know as this will affect how we group the children. We will then indicate when your child can start which may not be until the Monday after you notify us.

The Collect from the First Sunday after Trinity

Bible And Candle Clipart
O God,
the strength of all those who put their trust in you,
mercifully accept our prayers
and, because through the weakness of our mortal nature
we can do no good thing without you,
grant us the help of your grace,
that in the keeping of your commandments
we may please you both in will and deed;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Reflection opportunity:
What gives you strength? What can you do to help others in need of strength or confidence?
Hi all,
Now that some of us are back in school there may be some delays to getting stuff up on the website first thing - I'll try and get it done quickly!

Online safety Information for Children

  • Only add your real friends to online games
  • Do not talk to anyone you don't know
  • Do not give your personal information (such as your school, your whole name, your age, your address)
  • Only use games and apps that are appropriate for your age
  • Tell an adult if you see something that worries you
  • Talk to your adults about what you are doing on the interenet so they know you are being safe

Online safety Information for Parents 

It is likely that many children will be spending a lot of time online whilst the enforced closure and lockdown is in place. Please remain vigilante at all times regarding this and ensure you are fully aware of what your children are doing and where they are going online. This is of particular importance with respect to social media, chatrooms, house party, zoom etc. Unfortunately there are people who would take advantage of the current situation and we need to be extra careful with what the children are accessing online. The following links are to support you as parents in keeping your children safe online.





Work activities

Any activities referenced in the table will be uploaded here. Use your exercise book to record your answers.

Writing activities will be set based on Goodnight Mr Tom and also from pictures appearing on the Pobble365.com website. Practice makes perfect so do keep your writing skills sharp by writing as much as possible!

Continue to read any books that you have and like. All reading is excellent and you should aim to do as much of this each day as possible: you learn so much about the wider world from your reading; you know that I cannot speak highly enough of it!
