Dear Y6 Parents,
We have had several enquiries regarding PGL, and would love to clearly explain how things will move forward. At the moment, PGL still have our booking open, and have offered an amended date to other schools whose booking have been missed already. With circumstances and opening schools still not certain, we cannot confirm how things will proceed. But if the booking is cancelled at PGL end, then the school will secure a refund from them as soon as we can, and get money to you accordingly as quickly as possible. I would really like to have more concrete plans, but as you appreciate, things are very up in the air at the moment. If you have any questions, please contact the school, and we will do our best to answer things.
Many thanks – stay safe all!!
I have sent home with the children a pack of English and Maths activities if you would like to practise some of the skills we have learnt. If your child finds an activity tricky, please do not worry as we will be revisiting these in the coming months. Please contact the school to arrange a time to collect the pack if you have not received one.
If you would like to work on alternative activities that is completely fine and encouraged.
