We are well into the throws of our school year now and have begun our fabulous new topic all about Chocolate! Whilst it is no surprise the children are enjoying their learning about this fantastic subject, it is a pleasure to see how engaged they have been in their geography topic.
Here are a few key reminders for Year 4:
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email us,

Email Communication Statement
As we are able to conduct face-to-face contact this year, this is the preferred method of communication between teachers and guardians. Please feel free to arrange a meeting with us to discuss any concerns. We are also out on the playground most days for any quick questions.
As a school we recognise the value of providing email addresses for parents to communicate non-urgent issues with members of staff. At Thomas Jolyffe teachers are free to check their emails as they wish in order to fit to their own preferred work pattern but are not expected to check while they are teaching, while they are at home, or at weekends - so response times may vary. We believe that up to 48 working hours is a reasonable length of time to receive a considered reply.
As with all messages, the meaning and tone may vary depending on who is reading it. Please consider this before choosing to email any member of staff. We would also encourage all parents to consider information sent to teachers regarding other children very carefully as this can be requested by other parents under the rules governing GDPR.
