Friday 13th March - Head teacher's message
Thank you for your patience and understanding this week in relation to the school’s response to the Coronavirus. I am sure you will appreciate we are currently dealing with a complex and rapidly changing situation. Our first priority will always be the health and safety of the children and staff in our school. Now more than ever, this remains our primary focus. This is an entirely unprecedented situation and we are following official advice from the government and the NHS. This advice is being added to on a daily basis and we are monitoring and responding to that as it is published. For updated guidance please see: https://www.gov.uk/…/guidance-to-educational-settings-about…
Aside from the virus, we have continued to ensure a normal learning week for our children and have been very pleased with their hard work and effort. In assembly today Mrs Huns gave out certificates to six of our Y4 children who have been working really hard to improve their times tables. We also celebrated the ‘shared stories’ total which stands at 33,551 now with 2HP and 4KV having read the most this week. Keep going with your story reading shares at home!
Each week in Good News Assembly a child is chosen from each class who has been showing our rules and values through their behaviour and learning. Their names are listed on our website to share with family and friends: Well done to today’s RRS stars! https://www.muscliffprimary.co.uk/spring-term-2020/ Our overall house winners this week are Kindness team (green).
Last Saturday afternoon eight children from Y5 participated in a swimming gala at Littledown, organised by Swim Bournemouth. The children tried really hard against many other local schools and some very strict rules! Despite having only two recent practices the girls came third overall! Thank you to Miss Vella and Mr Constant who supported the team on Saturday. Well done everyone.
Unfortunately, due to concerns around the coronavirus for our older generation, Mike the lollipop man was unable to come into school this afternoon to say goodbye to the children – we will rearrange this at a later time. The book to sign will remain in the office so you can still add a message if you would like to.
We like to communicate with parents via email, the app, and Facebook as well as on our website.
If you have not been receiving emails from the school and would like to, then please let the school office know: firstname.lastname@example.org We are trying as much as possible to be 'paperless and environmentally friendly'. Thank you.
Have a good weekend. Stay healthy. Keep up the handwashing!
See you all on Monday,
