Term 2 - Friday 27th November 2020
Acts of Kindness

Christmas is always a special time in a primary school.  Despite the restrictions we all face, we will still be having events in school to ensure the children have moments to remember.
We will have our Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 11th December and enjoy class Christmas parties on the last day of term.  All Children will have the opportunity to enjoy Christmas dinner in the hall - they will remain in class bubbles and additional cleaning will be in place.  Please see the dates at the bottom of the newsletter.
Next week in school, children will start a reverse advent calendar.  Each day they will be encouraged do something kind for a friend, family member and even someone they might not know so well.

I hope you all have an enjoyable weekend!

Christmas Cards
Our School Council is made up of pupils from every class from Year 1 to Year 6.  One of the topics we discussed at this week's meetings was Christmas Cards.  For the last few years the school has chosen to discourage children to send cards to each other in school as we consider the environmental impact.  The School Council felt that although it is nice to get cards, they voted to continue to think of the environment first.
In light of the Covid-19 measures we have in place, it is also important that we minimise the amount of things coming in and out of school from different households.
Covid Update

As some of you may be aware some other local schools have had to close class bubbles.  I just want to clarify to you some of the guidance from Public Health England should they ask a school to close a bubble:  
  • Remember that for the vast majority of people, coronavirus is a mild illness
  • Parents and carers of all children in the bubble will be asked to collect their child and the children will be asked to isolate for 14 days.  
  • Unless a child develops symptoms, they will not need to have a test
  • The rest of your household, including siblings do not need to isolate - unless anybody in the household develops symptoms.
  • All other children in the school, including any siblings of children in the closed bubble, should continue to attend school.
