This week we held our end of term rewards and celebration assemblies to highlight and celebrate the achievements of children throughout the term. The children have continuously demonstrated a great desire to learn, followed the Samuel Ryder Way and have displayed great resilience when adapting to new routines. We are very proud of them all.
We would also like to thank parents for their continued support during these unprecedented times. We appreciate your efforts to adapt and support us in following the Covid guidelines.

At SRA, we place great importance on attendance and expect that all our students achieve an attendance level of at least 96% each academic year. It is through good attendance that students can make the most of the opportunities that school has to offer, enabling them to achieve their full potential.
The winning class this Half Term was Purple Class with 98.5%. They received extra Golden Time as a reward.

This week's class updates
At this moment in time, we are unfortunately not able to have volunteers or parent readers support children in school. We really do value the support that parents have previously provided and look forward to being able to invite visitors into school again.
If you wish to continue to be a parent reader or would like to become one, please e-mail Mrs Wood at email@example.com and you will be contacted as soon as parents can enter school.
We would like to remind parents and children that our primary lunch time clubs are specific for individual year groups to ensure our year group bubbles do not mix. Children will not be able select clubs run by another year group.
Curriculum Information Evenings and Workshops
Due to current safety guidelines, we are unable to invite parents to our Curriculum Information Evenings and Workshops. We have created PowerPoints containing all the relevant information and these will be placed on the school website for you to access at your leisure. We will let you know when each of these can be accessed.
Uniform and PE Kit
Please ensure your child wears their full school uniform every day including correct footwear and tie. Haircuts are to be kept smart, without any shaved lines or patterns in the hair. The shortest grade for haircuts is a 2. In addition, long hair should be tied back at all times. Earrings should be plain gold or silver studs and should be removed for PE. Please ensure your child also has their full PE kit for all PE lessons. This must include the correct socks, footwear, fleece etc. Letters will be sent home to any children who consistently fail to bring in their full PE kit to PE lessons.
All homework will be set and sent via Edulink. You will receive a notification that your child has had homework set for them. Homework will be set on a Friday and should be completed in their homework books and returned to school by Tuesday. Please ensure all homework is brought back into school on time. Your child will receive one piece of English and one piece of Maths homework per week, along with their spellings. If you have any problems with accessing Edulink, please contact the IT department on: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please ensure your child reads at least three times a week and that this is recorded and signed in their reading record. Every week your child has the opportunity to move up on the reading ladder if they have read at least three times in one week. If they reach the top of the ladder at the end of each half-term, they will be rewarded with a certificate! If they read the whole term, they will be entered into a raffle to win a book of their choice!
Within the reading records, you will also find the spelling lists for your child’s year group. Where possible, please practice these spellings with your child as this will provide a lot of support towards their reading and understanding of new vocabulary.
At break time please ensure the only snack your child has with them is either a piece of fruit or vegetables. Please also ensure your child brings in a coat to wear due to the changeable weather.
During our Friday assemblies we like to celebrate achievements that have taken place both within and outside of school. If you would like your child to be presented with their medal or award in the assembly, please could you ensure information about the award is provided.
Walking to and from school
Please can all children and adults ensure they use the pelican crossing/lollipop crossing when crossing the road outside of school, to ensure we all leave and arrive at school safely. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
