Mailing for 21st January 2022
Sadly, the number of positive Covid cases across school is increasing but thankfully people seem not to be as unwell as with the previous variants. Thank you for your continued support and vigilance. The change in national restrictions next week, moving to Plan A, means that masks no longer become necessary. As a school, we have revised our risk assessment and have taken the decision to keep our ‘year group bubbles’ until February half term. This is to see how things pan out in the local community following the changes. The wearing of masks around school for staff will be optional and a personal decision.

This week the Year R children have been looking for robbers and making a list of everything that has been stolen. They have also been taking fingerprints and using magnifying glasses to look carefully at their finger prints and describe them. Each class are taking their turn at the fire pit to make hot dogs. Please remember to login to Bug Club to read your phonics book. Each week we add three new books that relate to the sounds we are learning in class. The children have been enjoying playing phonics bloom games www.phonicsbloom.com. Word of the week next week is brave and the maths word of the week is back.
This week the Year 1 children have been talking about weight in maths. They have used the bucket scales to help them look at heavier and lighter objects. The children have also been writing another sorting using time words like then, next and after that. Their stories have been fantastic! In DT, the children have been designing aliens, which we will be making in to toys over the next few weeks. The star words of the week this week are passengers and universe.
This week Year 2 received a video message from Ken and Iain from Openbox. They asked us if we could write an information leaflet all about the Great Fire of London that they could take to other schools to share with other children. So this week in English we started our very important task. In Maths we have been using arrays to help us solve multiplication problems and have learned about commutativity. Can your child explain what that means? We also had an online remote visit from the fire service who talked to us about fire safety. In the afternoon we had a lot of fun testing the suitability of different material spoons for different purposes during our practical Science investigation. A chocolate spoon isn’t very good for stirring hot water!

General News and Information:
Please be advised that DFE guidance informs us that if a child displays any coronavirus symptom (cough, temperature or loss of taste/smell), we must send the child home and ask them to follow the guidance and get them a PCR test. The child must isolate until a negative result is given when they are able to return to school if they are well enough. If the result is positive they must isolate for 10 days but can return to school if they have a negative LFD test on days 6 and 7.
And do not have a temperature.
Remember that LFD testing is for people who are asymptomatic. If anyone within your household develops symptoms, you must book at PCR test by either phoning 119 or booking online: https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
HC3S have launched a new parent portal where they can register children needing special school dinner menus directly. This will give parents more control and direct contact with the catering team. You will then need to make an application online for your child to have a special menu and the school will be notified automatically. If you need to apply for a special menu, please see the information in Letters Home
If your child has a change or existing or new medical condition, please inform us by completing the form which is now available on our website: New or Change to Existing Medical Condition Form
We continue to put our children, their parents and our staff at the centre of any decision making to ensure that we keep everyone as safe as we can at this continued tricky time. If you have any feedback as to how this week has been, please let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a lovely weekend. J
Take care and stay safe.
