Positive COVID-19 Case – Panda Class

FAO: Parents/Carers of children in Panda Class in school on Friday 11th March

We have been made aware that we have a positive case of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Panda Class at Myddle Primary School.

We have followed the national guidance and have identified that your child has been in close contact with the affected person.  In line with the national guidance, your child does not need to self-isolate but we strongly advise that they take a rapid lateral flow device (LFD) test every day for 7 days. If any of these LFD tests are positive they should immediately self-isolate.

If your child develops any of the main COVID-19 symptoms, or any of the precautionary symptoms associated with COVID-19, they must take a PCR test and remain off school until a negative result has been received.

Panda Class – Precautionary LFD testing

We are aware of a positive LFT result in Tiger class. We are concerned that this may  affect the children of Panda Class also. As a precautionary measure we would strongly recommend lateral flow testing your child, daily from today, for the next 7 days to try to prevent the spread. This decision follows the updated government guidance received today for close contacts.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact school on 01939 290834.

 

Panda Class – Spare clothes

Please can any spare clothes that school have supplied to your child be returned to school before the end of term.

We are running very low.

 

Reception Baseline Assessment (RBA) information for parents

Information for parents and carers of children in reception:

Your child will be participating in the reception baseline assessment (RBA)
within the first 6 weeks of starting reception.
The purpose of the assessment is to provide the starting point for a new measure
that will help parents understand how well schools support their pupils to
progress between reception and year 6 / the end of key stage 2.

The RBA is a short, interactive and practical assessment of your child’s early
literacy, communication, language and mathematics skills when they begin
school, using materials that most children of your child’s age will be familiar with.
It is statutory for all schools from September 2021.

The RBA is not about judging or labelling your child or putting them under any
pressure. Your child cannot ‘pass’ or ‘fail’ the assessment. Its main purpose is to
create a starting point to measure the progress schools make with their pupils. Your child will undertake this as part of their learning through play activities and will and will not feel as though they are being assessed.

School Menu’s – Panda and Tiger Class

We have sent home a lunch menu tonight with all children in Panda and Tiger Class.

Please can we ask that you help your child decide on an option for their lunch the following day. The younger ones are struggling at the moment choosing what they would like for their lunch, and this is taking up a considerably amount of time each morning.

If your child does not like a choice from the menu, you can either supply them with a packed lunch or encourage them to try one of the two options available.

If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to give school a ring on 01939 290834

Thank You

To all Parents and Careers,

From all of us at Myddle, we just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the support you have given us in helping to teach your children over the past 8 weeks. We know it hasn’t been easy, with many of you juggling work and caring for siblings while managing home schooling tasks.

We can’t begin to tell you how rewarding it has been to be regularly receiving feedback and photos of the children’s work. We know how hard this has been to keep on top of and we really have appreciated it.

We are all so excited to welcome your children back to school on Monday where we can take back the reins and give you all a very well deserved break.

We hope you all have a relaxing weekend.

Many thanks

Mr Glover

Panda Class Home Learning Friday 5th March

Hi Pandas,

 

it’s the last day of Home Learning!  Hooray!!!

You have all done so well, you should feel very proud of yourselves for all of your hard work!  A huge thank you to all of the grown ups too that have had such an enormous task to make it all happen.

We are all set for next week, to welcome you back; with lots of fun activities.

For today, Friday – use this day to catch up or take it easy.

Don’t forget to do some yoga with Cosmic Kids, or PE with Mr Wright or Joe Wickes.

Enjoy more great stories. You could try making up and writing a story of your own.  Think about some amazing characters; do they have any super powers? What do they look like?

Here’s one of my favourites.

You could plan a teddy bear’s picnic and plan a menu.

What would you make them to eat?  You could draw your picnic food on a plate and label it.

 

Why not colour by numbers

Teddy-Bears-Picnic-Colour-By-Numbers_ver_1

Or a crossword…

Teddy-Bears-Picnic-Crossword

Or if you want a real challenge a Teddy Bears Picnic Sudoku!

Teddy-Bears-Picnic-Sudoku-Differentiated

Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend.

Remember for next week, winter uniform please, as we have to have the windows and doors open for ventilation. Jumpers and cardigans will be needed too and a winters coat. Come in your PE kits (with gloves and hats if it’s cold) on a Wednesday and Friday.

Best wishes

Mandy Turner
