Bryn Offa Rainbows

Having seen so many wonderful rainbows in people’s windows recently. Bryn Offa have also decided to get in on the act. We thought that in order for our rainbows to be seen from the road, they had to be extra large. Can you spot them the next time you walk past?

Home Learning

Dear Parents and Pupils,

Four weeks ago the government took the decision to close all schools across the country. In order for your child to continue learning at home, Bryn Offa provided them with a learning pack and further links on the school website to interactive resources. In addition to this, Easter activities were also posted on the individual class homepages. As a staff we now feel these those resources have been exhausted and therefore further learning tasks will need to be provided.

Starting from 9:00am Monday, and each Monday throughout the summer term, each class homepage will be updated with a week’s worth of tasks. These can be found using the tabs on the top of the Bryn Offa website and scrolling down to find – Class 5 Homepage for example.

These tasks are not designed to work like a full day in school. But more of a little and often approach. It’s safe to say that the biggest priority for everyone at the moment is to stay safe and to look after each other. If these tasks help pass the time, then great.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding any of the tasks set, please don’t hesitate to contact your class teacher. The email address can be found on the individual class homepages.

Best wishes, I look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Year 6 Transition to Marches

Today I have received and email from the Year 7 lead at the Marches school, Mr Kemble. He has asked me to pass on this information to every parent of any child who will be attending the Marches in September.

Good morning all. I hope you are all well and keeping safe at this difficult time.

You may be aware that packs for Year 6 students joining us in September were posted out last week, rather than the usual delivery to primary schools.

All packs contained a reply paid envelope for all the reply slips to go into, regardless of any conflicting instructions that may have been on any of the paperwork in the pack.

I wonder if you could convey this please in your next Year 6 communication to your families as we have confused a number of them:

All slips are to go into the reply paid envelope and posted back to The Marches for the deadline of the 15th May

In addition, a direct debit mandate was missing from the packs. We are currently working on a means of getting this out to them.

If you have any questions regarding these transition packs, I would encourage you to contact the Marches directly.

Best wishes everyone and stay safe.

Free School Meals

The free school meals we provide are divided into the two different categories of Universal Infant Free School Meals, and the Benefits Related Free School Meals.

The food voucher scheme relates only to the Benefits related meals. as detailed on this government page:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-free-school-meals-guidance/covid-19-free-school-meals-guidance-for-schools

I have emailed the families who are currently entitled to the vouchers, and am in the process of making the arrangements for their delivery by email. This is likely to take a day or two.

If the entitled families have not received an email from me, it is because the email contact we is out of date, and families must contact me with an active email account if this is the case.

Families who currently find themselves in a financial situation which may entitle them to apply for the benefits related free meals, should make contact with me and I can try to provide further information on the process.

Class Homepages

Good Afternoon Bryn Offa Team,

Just a quick note to remind you to check your individual class homepage using the tab at the top of the page. These have recently been updated with individual class email addresses so that you are able to contact your class teacher directly with any questions or concerns that you may have.

In addition to this, you will find details of Mrs Hartland’s rainbow challenge. How many rainbows can we create altogether? I have seen loads on my daily walks and they always put a smile on my face.

Stay safe and take care everyone!

Mr Jones
