Mailing for 7th May 2021
The children have continued with their topics this week and have been learning lots of new and exciting things:
Year R have been very imaginative this week creating a masterpiece that you will be able to purchase later in the year. Some of the staff went home wearing more of the acrylic paint than the children did including in their hair. PE has continued this week despite the rain and the children have been busy trying to catch bouncing balls.
Year 1 have been thinking about what they do not know about castles and writing questions to find out the answers. The staff are going to also try and find out the answers to their questions. The Maths focus has been on halves so that Miss Hurdle and Mrs Moore can have a picnic with food to share. Mr Francis and Mrs Rampton are going to join them to share the food even further (halves and quarters).
Year 2 have been looking at past and present tense and learning to read the clock. The thing they have enjoyed the most this week has been learning about Isambard Kingdom Brunel – ask them what they know … you will be surprised.

The students in Bumblebee and Butterfly Class are with us until 21st May 2021 and those in Ladybird and Badger Class are with us until 18th June 2021. They are quickly learning the names of the children and staff which is not an easy task!

The Government announced that adults in the household, child care or support bubble of children of primary age are eligible to partake in Lateral Flow Device Testing screening. You are able to collect 2 packs of home test kits at a local collection point. Each pack contains 7 tests. These should only be used by adults aged 18 years and over. Most collection points are open from 1.30 – 7pm. You can check online to see if the location is open or busy before you go. You do not need to make an appointment. It is important that you do not visit a collection point outside opening hours, as it may be used to test people with Coronavirus symptoms. Please see the link to locate your nearest collection point: Covid Test Collection Points.
