Year 2 Leavers       ***Important Notice***

Dear Year 2 Parents,
Normally at this time of the year, Year 2 children would be putting on a leaver’s assembly. Unfortunately this year it is not going to be possible! We could not let them leave us without doing something special!
We would therefore like the children to write a sentence about their favourite memory at Moat Farm Infants. This can be anything from nursery up until year 2. We would like them to write the sentence: My favourite memory is ………………………… and draw a picture of it. It needs to be clear and readable. We would then like you to take a picture of them holding it in landscape. This will be used to create a video for the children which will be shared online on our school website. So please only take part if you are giving permission for this to be used online on our website. This then needs to be emailed to Mrs McDonald at by Friday 3rd July. Please make sure you include your child’s name and class on the email!
As they will not be having a class photograph this year we would also like you to include a photograph of them in portrait of their head and shoulders. This will then be put together to create a 2020 class photograph for the children to keep.
Finally, as the children will not be having their leaver’s assembly we would like to invite the children who are at home to come into school for a leaver’s picnic outside with their teacher, social distancing rules will obviously apply. They will be given their class photo at the picnic and this will be shared on the school website. So again only send this in if you are giving consent for it to be shared online on the school website. More information about dates for this picnic will be sent out very soon. This way all the children get to say goodbye to Moat Farm Infant School.
So get drawing and we can’t wait to see all of your photographs!!
Don’t forget its 2 photos that I need!
Mrs McDonald
