Dear Parents / Carers,
Mrs McDonald is returning from maternity leave at the end of October and she will be the St Benedict class teacher four days a week from then on, with Mrs Lee covering the fifth day. Until October half-term, Mrs Longhurst (3 days) and Mrs Lee (2 days) will be taking the class. Although I appreciate this is a bit of chopping and changing at the start of an important year, this is an excellent teaching team, with many years of combined experience in Year 6 so we are confident that the team in place will more than compensate for the change. We have also factored in that one of the weeks in the first half-term is study week, where the class will be at PGL on the Isle of Wight. (further information about that trip will be stared in early September).
