Stars of the week are:
Owl Class – Sissi for working hard to improve her writing.
Flamingo Class – Natalia for always setting a good example to others.
Woodpecker Class – Christopher for helping a new child to settle, and Clara for always trying her best.
Eagle Class – Anatole for completing the online learning set by his teachers while quarantining, which enabled him to keep up with the class, even though he was not in school!
Louie – Well done for earning ‘The Challenge Cup’ for this half-term. This was given as a reward for demonstrating a very positive attitude to learning, on the return to school. See photo gallery below.
Everybody has been making the most of the wonderful weather this week, spending plenty of time outdoors. This is really helping us to keep safe from Covid-19! We have had regular collective worship on Jesus Green, and Eagle class spent the whole afternoon there on Friday. They had a great hockey lesson, learning to control the ball. Please see the video!
The photos of collective worship show Flamingos performing their story map of ‘Peepo’, Woodpeckers reading their oxymoron poems, which were really fun, and Owls reading their instructions for handwashing!
Fortunately, despite a few children having colds, we haven’t seen Covid-19 symptoms in school. I know that it is often difficult to distinguish between these which is causing some of the problems with testing. The data from the Covid tracker app, developed by Tim Spector, is showing that cold symptoms such as sneezing and runny noses are generally not symptoms of Covid-19. You can see him talking about this on YouTube.
He is also very keen for parents and children to report on the app, to help them further track symptoms. You can join on this website: https://covid.joinzoe.com/
I hope that is helpful!
