Good morning

Well the final day has arrived. Thank you so much for your support yesterday evening. I hope the children enjoyed their party. I know all staff who attended certainly did. As promised, I have uploaded the photo montage from the party. I will ask Miss Marshall to send a text with the password to access the file. It is in a strange format so fingers crossed it’ll work!

Hello all,

Mr B has been busy creating a Malvern memory or a 1000. Please click on the link below to view images and videos of all the adventures and challenges the children faced…..maybe making their beds was the most challenging of all.

Information for 1D during the bubble closure.

Thursday, 8 July 2021

Following on from my earlier text message confirming the positive PCR result Class 1D and staff will now self -isolate until Friday 16th July being the 10th and last day.  Should your child develop any of the COVID symptoms please book a PCR test.  Once a symptom has developed LFD test kits are not to be used.  Please contact the school should your child receive a positive result.

Class 1D will now revert to ‘remote learning’ which Mrs Dearden is promising will be ‘fun’!  Please check your child’s SEESAW login and if there are any issues please email Mrs Dearden  [email protected]

If you require a device please send an email to myself  [email protected] and we can arrange a loan of a laptop until your child returns on Monday 19th July.  Mrs Dearden has also uploaded new books for all on Phonic Bug Club.

If your child is in receipt of Free School Meals please contact myself via email if you like a food hamper ordered which can be arranged for collection from school.

The school trip has been rearranged for Tuesday 20th July.  This will be for both 1D and 1W.

Annual reports for 1D will now be sent home on Monday 19th July.  We will also ensure that they will meet their new class teachers (Mrs Duffy and Mrs Hirst) before the end of the school year (Wednesday 21st July).

It goes without saying that we will miss all of 1D and Mrs Dearden during this closure.  Mrs Dearden, will be in daily contact with the children.

Annual Reports

Tuesday, 6 July 2021

Hello all,

Your child’s annual school report will be sent home on Friday this week (9th July).  The Government have again removed, as last year, the statutory obligation for schools to report on Attendance and Assessment information.  However, schools have been instructed to comment on your child’s involvement in Remote/ Home learning during the lockdown.  All Government updates are due another National lockdown this academic year.  The teacher’s have, I feel written reports reflecting strengths and next steps, along with some superb photographs of your child’s journey this year.  Most importantly the reports will make you super proud and smile! Please check you child’s book bag on Friday for their report.

Reception New Starters Induction Arrangements

Tuesday, 8 June 2021

Hello all,

Teachers and Teaching Assistants in our Reception Year have been busy planning the transition/induction arrangements for our new starters.  Due to the current circumstances we are unable to complete our usual ‘home visit’ as part of this process.  Over the coming weeks the teachers (Mrs Poynton and Miss Austin) will be phoning you for a discussion, delivering a Welcome Pack (doorstep), making visits to your child’s nursery/pre-school and inviting your child to attend ‘Stay and Play Sessions both before and after the Summer break.  Children will start full time on Wednesday 15th September.

Please click on the attached document for further information.

Parent’s Evening 4th and 5th May 2021

Tuesday, 4 May 2021

We are holding Parent’s Evenings on the 4th and 5th May.  Depending on the weather your meeting maybe held outside or inside should the weather not be suitable.  Please could parent/carers come through the main entrance of school and you will be directed to your child’s classroom where you can see their learning environment, take a look at their books and have a discussion with the class teacher.  We ask for masks to be worn when you are inside the school building.  COVID measures will be in place i.e. spacing, ventilation and hand sanitiser will be readily available.  I have asked teachers to keep strictly to the 10 minutes per meeting in order to keep the number of adults to a minimum. This is also to avoid a ‘backlog’ of parent/carers waiting.  We also request no children are brought along to this meeting.  We look forward to seeing you over the next two evenings.

 

Kind regards

Miss Marshall
