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 had a fantastic time on our trip to Zoological.
We really enjoyed travelling to the different continents to see the animals and we looked at their habitats. This linked well with our Science topic, living things and their habitats.
We handled reptiles, watched the animal show and finished off the day with the most spectacular, dazzling bird show. Mrs Goodwin had the best spot for the show with the low, swooping birds! The lemur and parakeets even liked the look of some of us!
It was incredible!

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:
Year 2 are very much looking forward to their trip on Monday. Just a few points to clarify with you.
-Children are expected to wear school uniform but as they will be on their feet for the majority of the day, we ask that they wear comfortable walking footwear. E.g. trainers.
-As the children will be travelling by coach, we would like to offer parents the opportunity to provide their children with a mask to wear for the course of the journey. This is your choice and all adults on the trip will be wearing a mask for the coach trip. All parent helpers and teachers will also be carrying out lateral flow testing, a maximum of 24 hours before the trip.
-The children will be expected to look after and carry their own lunch (even those who have ordered from school) so please could children bring a bag to carry this in. We suggest a backpack that can then be stored in the educational room at Zoological.
We look forward to a fun trip!
Have a great weekend.
The Year 2 Team
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 Year 2 Maths this week we are looking at adding two 2 digit numbers together. It is quite a tricky skill! If you would like to support your child with this at home, here is the method we are currently using in school.
2nd Step- Add the tens
3rd step- Add on the units
Many thanks for your support,
Team Year 2
