For children across the country, the summer holidays are a welcome opportunity to take a deep breath and relax after a busy school year. When children do return to school after the holidays, it’s common for teachers to talk about the ‘summer slump’. This is the phenomenon where, after six weeks away from school, children have forgotten some of the key things they spent the last year painstakingly learning. This means that rather than moving onto new and exciting areas of the curriculum, the start of term is spent helping children back to the level they were at before the holidays. If we can keep our children’s learning ticking over then they’ll start back in September both refreshed and relaxed and ready to pick up their schoolwork just where they left off – a huge advantage.
There are lots of ideas in the front of their journals and a little each day will really help.
We look forward to seeing all the journals when we return to school in September.
School Sports Kit
Many thanks to those who have returned their kits. For those who haven’t, we would like to collect them in early in September, ready for redistribution.
Have a great summer – see you on Tuesday, Sept 5!
