P.e Kit Reminder. 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️

Children in Years 1-6

Please can we ask that all children have their PE kit in school every day as sometimes your child’s PE slot needs to be changed due to the weather or other circumstances. The school’s Uniform Policy is on the website if you need to check what your child needs for PE.

Please note, PE kits may get muddy or grass stained at times because of the active nature of PE lessons. If your child wears tights to school, please ensure that they have socks in their PE kits to wear with their trainers for PE lessons.

If you have any queries regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact school.

Thank you. 😀

Careers Day! 👮‍♀️👷‍♂️👩‍⚖️👩‍🍳👩‍🌾

On Friday 9th July we will be holding a Careers Day in school. On that day we will be discussing a range of jobs that children might want to do when they are older.

We would like to invite all children from nursery to Y6 to come dressed up in an outfit that represents their dream job.

Please do not go out and spend money on costumes- we just want a bit of fun on the day. It may be that your child simply decorates a plain t-shirt with pictures or words to do with the job they have chosen or they may want to come fully dressed as something. Totally up to them!

Thank you. 😁

Gentle Reminder 😃

Covid-19 Information - Powis & Partners Veterinary Surgeons

Hi All.

Please could we remind parents of the correct COVID test procedures if your child is symptomatic with any of the main COVID symptoms.
– Continuous Cough
– High Temperature
– New loss of taste or smell

 

A PCR test should be taken if your child has any of the main above symptoms. If you chose not to test your child, you must isolate for 10 days.

 

A lateral flow test should only be taken if your child does not have symptoms and is part of routine testing twice a week.

 

We as a school cannot make you take any COVID test however we will advise accordingly to ensure we do our best to keep our pupils and staff safe.

 

NHS COVID Tests – Please use this link to familiarise yourself with the procedures. 

 

We do hope you understand.

 

If you need clarification on anything, please do not hesitate to contact school. 😃

 

 

30 Days Wild 🐛🐌⛅🌼🍂

The ‘Wildlife Trust’ have launched ’30 days wild’ for June. This is a yearly challenge that asks everyone to make time for nature. The concept is simple: complete a Random Act of Wildness each day for 30 days. The act doesn’t have to be huge or difficult, it just has to be wild!

 

Below are some ideas of the acts that you can complete:

  • Feel the wild between your toes – squelch your toes in grass, sand or mud.
  • Look up at the clouds – what shapes can you see?
  •  Find a creepy crawly – be gentle. Get close and watch the way it moves.
  • Thread a daisy chain – pick daisies and thread their stems together.
  • Showcase on a nature table – display wild treasures.
  • Lunch in the wild.
  • Listen for wild sounds.
  • Snap a blue photo – butterflies, blue flowers or a clear blue sky.
  • Identify a wildflower – take notes on it, then search in a book or online.
  • Read a wild book – find a book about wild creatures and read outside.
  • Picnic with the birds – prepare a bird feast with fruit, cheese and seeds.
  • Create a work of art – using leaves, pinecones, feathers and twigs.
  • Watch a wild webcam.
  • Search for mini wildness – forests of moss, flowers in pavements.
  • Whistle with grass.
  • Sketch up close.
  • Quiz your family/friends – write a wildlife quiz.
  • Spot a wild mammal.
  • Scatter seedbombs – throw seeds and soil in hard to reach places.
  • Keep a note of wildlife – list the species that you see from your window.
  • Google wild facts – discover secrets about your favourite animal.
  • Meditate in the wild.
  • Decorate with a wild mobile – use twigs, string and leaves.
  • Design a wild home – from bug hotels to a hedgehog hideout.
  • Draw a wild landscape – use your imagination.
  • Switch off to tune in – turn off all electronic gadgets today.
  • Find a rainbow – find all the colours from the rainbow.
  • Map your local wildlife – draw a map and mark where you see wildlife.
  • Pick up litter.
  • Write a wild poem.

It would be great if you and your children could have a go at some of these activities. Please post photos on the school Facebook site, email them to your year group email addresses or tell/show me some of the acts that you have done.

We have lots of ‘30 days wild’ stickers to give out!

Happy wilding!
