Covid-19 Class 7 latest update
Thank you for taking your child for a PCR test following the advice last week. This helped us to identify further cases of children who were asymptomatic. If you have not taken your child yet for a PCR test please can we ask that you do so that every possible measure is taken to prevent further spread.
This morning we have had further conversations with our local public health team regarding the rise in positive cases in class 7. We have collectively decided that for Class 7 (as there is a significant number of positive cases), that we will for this week give the option of remote home learning or to remain in school.
If you decide to keep your child off school to conduct home learning for the remainder of this week, this will be authorised.
These are exceptional circumstances due to the high number of cases in this particular class. The year 2 classes are currently operating as separate bubbles which has managed to contain the spread.
We will continue to keep you updated and thank you once again for your support.
Coronavirus update Class 7

We will continue to follow public health advice and will keep you up to date.

Reading books -
Books will be changed two times per week on a Tuesday and a Friday
Please ensure you return books on or before Friday morning if they are sent out on a Tuesday and on or before Friday morning if they are sent out on a Tuesday.
When you receive a new book, please read the book more than once as this provides the opportunity for your child to build their fluency. Once you have read the book several times and your child builds their understanding of the text, then please ask them multiple questions about what they have read. I have attached a question stem bookmark to help you with the type of questioning they are exposed to in Year 2. Please keep up with home reading as this is an extremely important area of learning. The children will receive rewards for regular reading at home.
