FS Christmas Jumpers

When FS missed out on our Christmas Jumper Day in school, due to isolating, we thought we’d celebrate virtually!  Hope you like the photos.

FS Home Learning

Whilst our bubble has been closed the children (and parents!) have been so busy with all of the activities that we have set for their daily home learning tasks.  We’ve had some very positive feedback from parents and seen photos and videos of happy, healthy faces each day, which makes it all worthwhile!

Notice for parents

As our children, young people and teaching staff return to schools and colleges after the summer break, I wanted to let you know what the current Covid-19 picture is in Hull. Our most recent 7 day rate of infections (as at 08/09/20) was 4.2 per 100,000 people, which is about 11 new cases in a week. This is much lower than the rate across England and the region. It means that we are in a really good position as we return to school and college.

 

However, numbers are starting to rise again across the country and so we need to continue being careful to keep our numbers low. Please take care of each other by continuing to wash your hands often and to follow your school’s Covid guidelines. Take note of the symptoms of Covid-19, and take action by staying at home if you or your family have symptoms and seeking a test for the person with symptoms.

 

We’re confident we have really good systems in place locally with schools to respond quickly and effectively to any cases or issues that arise.

 

I will update you regularly on our local situation and I wish you a happy and healthy autumn term.

 

KEY WORKER LIST

If your work is critical to the COVID-19 response, or you work in one of the critical sectors listed below, and you cannot keep your child safe at home then your children will be prioritised for education provision:

Health and social care

This includes but is not limited to doctors, nurses, midwives, paramedics, social workers, care workers, and other frontline health and social care staff including volunteers; the support and specialist staff required to maintain the UK’s health and social care sector; those working as part of the health and social care supply chain, including producers and distributers of medicines and medical and personal protective equipment.

Education and childcare

This includes nursery and teaching staff, social workers and those specialist education professionals who must remain active during the COVID-19 response to deliver this approach.

Key public services

This includes those essential to the running of the justice system, religious staff, charities and workers delivering key frontline services, those responsible for the management of the deceased, and journalists and broadcasters who are providing public service broadcasting.

Local and national government

This only includes those administrative occupations essential to the effective delivery of the COVID-19 response or delivering essential public services such as the payment of benefits, including in government agencies and arms length bodies.

Food and other necessary goods

This includes those involved in food production, processing, distribution, sale and delivery as well as those essential to the provision of other key goods (for example hygienic and veterinary medicines).

Public safety and national security

This includes police and support staff, Ministry of Defence civilians, contractor and armed forces personnel (those critical to the delivery of key defence and national security outputs and essential to the response to the COVID-19 pandemic), fire and rescue service employees (including support staff), National Crime Agency staff, those maintaining border security, prison and probation staff and other national security roles, including those overseas.

Year 1

Here are some maths sheets to do at home with your child.  These topics have already been covered in class since September and would make good practise.

Work through them at your own pace and bring any completed sheets to your teacher.  Don’t worry if you can’t do them, only do what you can.

Have fun with them!

Chinese New Year!

The children in the Hub have been demonstrating excellent use of fine motor skills this week for our Chinese New Year celebrations.

We enjoyed our food tasting session with noodles, spring rolls and rice crackers on the menu. We used chopsticks to eat our noodles with and Raphael was crowned King of the Chopsticks.

The children displayed safe use of scissors and excellent cutting skills making their lanterns.

Good speaking and listening skills were also displayed during our story of the day ‘Cleversticks’, beautifully read by Stephanie.
