Dear Parents and Carers,
I hope you have had a relaxing Christmas and New Year. All pupils are due back at school on Thursday 6th January. There have been some changes to the government’s guidance in relation to COVID.
In most circumstances anyone with a positive COVID case will self-isolate for 7 days instead of 10 days (lateral flow tests to be taken on day 6 and 7), we will not be expecting pupils to wear face masks in the classroom but they can if they wish to do so. Where possible can you please encourage your child to wear a face mask on school transport. I realise this is not appropriate for some of our pupils however it will help reduce the transmission of the virus.
Pupils will be getting tested on the first day back to school (for those pupils with parental consent).
Many thanks for your continued support
Executive Deputy Head Teacher
Friday was Christmas dinner day and we decided to have it as class in our room. Everyone chipped in with getting the table ready, washing and drying up.
After dinner 10N had requested a karaoke rave and we did our best to oblige, 10F came and joined some of the fun too.
Mr Chipchase took no convincing to take to the mic, in fact we struggled to get him to put it down.
Naturally no ‘rave’ would be complete without glow sticks. Miss Nixon reckons it’s the best £2.50 she’s ever spent!
10N participated in various challenges on day 1 of our Christmas celebrations.
The champion of the After Eight challenge was Leon, who managed to navigate his chocolate from forehead to mouth in an impressive 23.8 seconds.
we’re not entirely sure who won the Mars bar game…or what the purpose was but it was certainly entertaining!
After all the games everyone shared a well earned Dominoes , thank-you FOTOS for donating the money to buy our Christmas treat.
8H have had the loveliest lead up to Christmas. Along with our usual lessons, we have found time to add in some festive fun. We have completed two AQAs qualifications; making wrapping paper, making a Christmas decoration. Here are some photos of our Christmas celebrations, no photos of the decorations as we wrapped them for someone in our family – no spoilers!
Don’t forget we break up today and pupils return to school on Thursday 6th January 2022. Have a lovely break everyone.
9B have spent this afternoon in the Forest School area cooking hot dogs and sausages, toasting marshmallows and making hot chocolate. All finished off with some Christmas music. They have had a lovely afternoon.
In order to raise money for St Cuthberts Hospice, 7W took part in the reindeer run. They raised money at home as well as within the school, raising a grand total of £161. 7W thoroughly enjoyed walking around the school grounds in their reindeer ears. As an additional thank you to the hospice, 7W also made some thank you cards which will be sent along with the donations. Thank you to all who have donated.
