Message from Mrs. Castell
We were very sorry to have to close a whole bubble this week, for the first time since March 2020. It is a reminder that we must all continue to be very careful and isolate and test when necessary. Contrary to reports in the media this week, the decision about which children and staff members must isolate is taken following advice from Public Health England, not the headteacher.
We have had another very busy week with the Year Two sports morning and I think they were inspired by England’s win, as they had a wonderful time competing in their national teams. We said goodbye to the chicks and ducks this week and it seems very quiet in the classrooms without them!
You will receive your child’s report by email on Monday. We will also send a form by ParentMail if you wish to sign up for a phone call with your child's class teacher following the receipt of your report.
Thank you for all of the information about achievements outside of school which we share on Friday assemblies. As it is the leavers assembly next week there will not be a celebration assembly, but anything you share with me will be shared the following week. We celebrated the achievements of some of our children who attend Writtle Minors today and they have a few spaces available if anyone in Year 2 in September would like to join. Please get in touch via the Writtle Minors website if you are interested.
Next Tuesday 6th July Year Two will visit the juniors, unless there is a change in the situation. They will use a room just for themselves and go over in their bubbles with their staff. They will not mix with children from the Junior school. The junior school staff will socially distance themselves from the children but still be very welcoming!
Thank you for all the orders for owl photos. We know the Foundation Stage bubble are isolating until next Friday, so the deadline has been extended to that day. Please give any envelopes to the class teacher. Kittle class photo order tickets have also been sent home - these should be completed online.
Warm regards and fingers crossed for the match tomorrow!
