Lianna- star of the week for giving 100% effort and creating some excellent ‘map’ work and beautiful handwriting this week.
We continue to battle the virus in our school community and continue to rely on parents supporting us at home.
Please do not send your children into school if they are displaying Covid 19 symptoms
- a new continuous cough
- a high temperature
- a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)
You need to get a PCR test booked straight away please and let us know the result.
There has been some changes in the advice we have been given as listed here …
For pupils identified as household or close contacts by Test and Trace:
- Household or close contacts of a positive cases are asked to take LFD tests daily for a period of 7 days from the start of what would have been their self-isolation period. This is in addition to the PCR they will have been recommended to take.
This is a request and though it is not issued by law, we ask you to help us in keeping control of the virus in our school.
We are ever hopeful that the vaccine rollout in secondary schools will impact the transmission rates from older siblings to Newdale children.
Rest assured we continue to do all we can to keep your children virus free.
We are very excited to announce that children in Year 4 will be taking part in a ’Big Fancy Dress Singalong’ in aid of Children in Need to help raise money for child mental health projects. The children will be filmed by the BBC and the video will be on local social media via BBC Radio Shropshire’s Facebook page.
We hope that you will help us to raise money for this worthy cause by following the link below:
A reminder that on Monday 11th October, we will be holding our Royal Banquet. Children are invited to bring in a change of clothes for the party in a bag to change into after lunch. This can be a costume, such as a King, Queen, dragon, Knight, etc. or just party clothes if you would prefer. This will be instead of forest school, so you do not need kits for this that day. We will share our photos with you afterwards.
On 22nd October, we will be inviting your children to either dress down or wear Halloween fancy dress. We would like them to bring their costume in a bag to change into – they will need to wear school uniform before then. Please do not send in face paints, as we are not able to apply it for them. Due to restrictions, our teachers are planning lots of exciting activities that they can carry out in their classes, including Halloween arts and crafts. If your child chooses to bring in a costume on that day, please can any Halloween themed props be left at home e.g hats and masks are fine to bring in.
In Reception, we have been learning about Harvest. We know that it is a special festival celebrated in Autumn as a thank you for the crops that have been grown this year. As part of our work we have discovered who celebrates Harvest and how. We read ‘The Little Red Hen’ book all about a hard-working hen who grows some wheat and turns it into bread. We then made our own delicious bread. Yum! We learnt some Autumn songs and have enjoyed learning about the Autumn season, looking at typical signs such as the leaves changing colour and falling from the trees. Using both Harvest and Autumn as inspiration, we have completed amazing crafts such as our Red Hen handprints and leaf crowns.
We hope you enjoy our video, where we are so proud to show you all the amazing things we have been up to…
Thank you for the donations to our Harvest Festival back in school.
