Following Government guidelines, an educational service provision continues to be in place for our Key Worker and Vulnerable children. Following step 2 of the Government plans, Millfield will re-open for Nursery, Reception and Year 1 children from Monday 1st June 2020.
If you have chosen for your child/ren to return to school on 1st June 2020, we would highly advise that all relevant information below should be shared with your child/ren to prepare them for the necessary changes.
•No scooters or bikes are permitted on the school grounds
What Will Learning Look Like?
The focus for all children during the re-opening of Millfield will centre on their wellbeing.
Teachers have carefully selected books which cover a range of different concepts, including emotions. All books chosen promote wellbeing and cover different areas of the curriculum, including PSHE and Phonics etc.
There will be new daily routines in place for children which support both Government guidance and the tailoring of our curriculum. The daily routines will include a large proportion of time being spent outside learning within their bubble group.
Every child will have their own tray on their desk which will have individual resources within it. In addition, there will be shared resources that are only used within the same bubble group. These shared resources will be cleaned at the end of everyday to limit the spread of germs.
We have high expectations at Millfield; we try hard to behave well and make good choices, as well as show our positive learning behaviours and our school values. Respectful, Determined and Proud underpin everything we do at Millfield. When Millfield re-opens, children will develop their understanding of Respectful in light of COVID-19. In terms of Respect, children will learn that this means we don't touch each other and we don't share our resources. This will be challenging because, at Millfield, we try so hard to be kind, to share and to socialise. But for the time being it will be Respectful to not share with our friends and to keep a safe distance between each other.
