We are at the end of another great week, with amazing examples of children working hard and always putting in 100% effort. Attendance continues to remain high, which is something to be proud of in these difficult times.
After successfully introducing hot meals to EYFS and KS1 over the past few weeks we are pleased to be able to offer hot meals to all children from Monday.
EYFS and KS1 will eat in the hall at the first sitting, the hall will then be thoroughly cleaned and there will then be a second sitting for all Year 3 and 4 children. Due to time contraints Year 5 and 6 children will continue to eat in their classrooms and hot meals will be served to them in a closed, insulated container for health and safety reasons. We will no longer be offering grab bags, as the menu will return to normal for all.
Meals can be booked in advance on the School Gateway or chosen in class on a daily basis. Please note that there is an 8am cut off time for making meal selections for that day on the School Gateway but meals can then be picked in class. If you need a meal selection changing please contact the school office.
Maths Day – Thursday 15th October
As mentioned in last week’s newsletter, on Thursday 15th October children can come dressed in a maths related costume, or dressed as a rock star for World Maths Day. Please do not feel that you have to go out and buy expensive costumes for this as it could be something as simple as wearing a patterned top or a football shirt with numbers on.
Halloween Day – Friday 23rd October
Children will be taking part in fun Halloween activities in their classroom and they are welcome to come to school dressed up for the day.
We have had a few staff this week having to isolate as they wait for test results. This has highlighted the difficulties we are all currently experiencing. We would like to remind you that if your child, or a member of your household, shows any of the symptoms of Covid-19 (a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss of/change in your normal sense of taste or smell) the government guidance states that you must all isolate until a test has been taken and a negative result received.
In the event that we do have to close a bubble, plans are in place to be able to provide daily online learning. A letter will follow to explain how this will work.
Once again we would like to thank you for your continued support.
