  Message for Year 6 Friday 5th June

Good evening Year 6,

I have spoken today with the staff that will be with you next week and they are really looking forward to seeing you all. A few people have asked about lunchtimes and PE kit so in case you have the same questions I thought I would send you all the same message. 😊

You can either buy a packed lunch from school or you can bring your own in a disposable bag. If you usually receive free school meals, we will provide a packed lunch for you. We are currently unable to provide hot meals.

If you can, bring a named water bottle with you that you can keep at your table.

On Monday, you will not need your PE kits, but you do need to be wearing school uniform. Your teachers will go over the plan for the week with you and will let you know which days you need your PE kit in school. The teachers have planned in plenty of time for you to ask questions and adjust to being back at Riverside!


Have a lovely weekend and I look forward to seeing you all on Monday.

Mrs Payne
