Mr Evens's Class

A very warm welcome to Year 3 and Happy New Year. I am looking forward to seeing you all back into school for the new term with enthusiasm and positivity and I cannot wait to see you all make fantastic progress with lots of hard work. I am sure that you are all eager to return to class. School will be different to what you remember but everything is in place for you ready to resume.

Our Teaching Assistants are Miss Taylor, Miss Ivory and Mrs James.

You can see important information such as the class timetable, curriculum information and terms dates below. 

If you do have any questions or concerns in the meantime, please do not hesitate and email me at Gavin.Evens@almondsburyprimary.co.uk. I will endeavour to respond as soon as it is convenient to do so.

Thank you,

Gavin Evens

Important information and Timetable

In regards to changing reading books, children will need to return books every Tuesday.

Books returned on a different day will not be taken in. This will allow us to be able to wipe down the books and place them aside for 72 hours before they can be re-issued.

Our class will re-issue books every Wednesday. As some books will be in quarantine, only a maximum of two books can be taken home at any time.

Please see below our class timetable:

I will come out to meet the class at the allocated time given and we will all walk into class together. There will be holding bays for only those children who have siblings who are arriving earlier (any other reason will need to be agreed with Mr Smith).

Classes will be allocated zones on the field and playground to use during break times and lunch times. In regards to school lunches, these will be delivered and consumed in the classroom.

All children will need to either sanitise or wash their hands on entry to school at the start of the day, after break time and lunch time and at the end of the day before leaving. Children will also need to wash their hands after using the bathroom.

Any shared resources that are used during the day will be cleaned at the end of each session. Furthermore, all surfaces will be cleaned regularly.

Assemblies and Collective Worship will take place in class. This will either be delivered by Mr Smith via Zoom or delivered by the class teacher.

On Tuesdays and Fridays, children must come into school in their PE kit.

At the end of the day, we will walk around to the front of the building as usual and you will be able to pick up your children. Please ensure that you adhere to social distancing rules and wear a face mask. The children will be encouraged to let me know that they can see you before they go to you. Please make sure that you are on time when picking up your children to avoid a large crowd gathering.

All of the above may be subject to change, depending on guidance sent to us from the Government. This will be communicated to you in advance.
