Dear Parents and Carers

I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe. ‚ÄčThere has been a lot of information in the media about the phased opening of the school from June 1st. Below is a letter I posted on Monday and I have also attached a video. Please do not worry you will be kept informed about how this will work. Our priority is to ensure everyone is safe!

  • Mask
  • Logo/badge
  • Gloves
  • Boots
  • Cape

Remember going over lines of main features in black will will add definition (make them stand out) if you feel this will make your design more clear/eye catching!
And don’t be afraid to borrow/ adapt bits from other super heroes you like.
Choose any medium you have at home/ are confident with including colouring pencils modelling clay/play dough etc

Keeping in Touch
Your children's class teachers are in touch with you through a range of ways. Firstly the weekly plans are available on the home page, via email and StudyBugs. Secondly you can email your child's works for marking via an email that has been sent to you by text. The email address is: your child's year group@newcity.boleyntrust.org. For example year1@newcity.boleyntrust.org or year5@newcity.boleyntrust.org We are also using StudyBugs as a means of communication. This was set up for absences but it is an excellent way to communicate with your children's teachers during this time. 

If you have any issues please also contact the school at 020 8472 2743 or info@newcity.boleyntrust.org
