Keep in touch with what has been happening in school

Autumn

by Rachel Brock on October 1, 2021 No comments

It is hard to believe that we already have four weeks of the Autumn term behind us!  The children are working incredibly hard and it is lovely to be walking around school seeing the children mixing with each other and learning together again.  The corridors are filled with groups of children working together. Today Y2 were role playing and had some very interesting alien faces to use.  It is fast approaching the time of year for our Year 6 parents to choose a secondary school and for families in the locality to choose a primary school.  Over the next few weeks we will be holding open mornings, please see the website for details.  I am looking forward to welcoming visitors to school and sharing our school with them.

Next week is STEM week (science, technology, engineering and maths).  Our STEM team have been busy planning an exciting week for all the children…… we will be visited by a mobile zoo, have a planetarium in our hall and much much more.

It is going to be an amazing week! Rest up over the weekend and remember no PE next week.

Covid reminder to keep us all safe

by Rachel Brock on September 14, 2021 No comments

We are delighted to be able to run things differently this term.  We are expected to continue with some measures to mitigate the risks.

Some of the basics continue to be very much central to the risk assessment.

  1. If your child feels unwell please do not send them to school seek a test.
  2. Regular handwashing is important.
  3. Classrooms and school will remain well ventilated.
  4. We will reduce numbers of visitors to school.
  5. Staff will be carrying out lateral flow tests twice weekly.
  6. If a member of our school community tests positive close contacts are required to get a PCR test and isolate if positive.
  7. Parents will be sent a “warn and inform” letter from school informing them of positive cases in school.

Thank you for continuing to work with the school we are aiming for another term of minimal disruption.

We have enjoyed a fantastic first week back in school.  It has been so lovely to welcome children back into their new classes and return to a near normal way of operating.

An amazing week of creativity, exploration, and of course fun!  The children have worked so hard and enjoyed learning about different techniques, experimenting with pattern and much much more!  We have learnt about artists and been inspired. A big well done and thanks to all our children, staff, parents and volunteers, because of your commitment to the project the week has been a huge success.
