Just a short update to keep in touch. It's hard to believe tomorrow is the 1st of July and we have completed another month in these extraordinary times! It's been lovely having more children in school this week and everyone is getting used to the new routines and guidance that we have to follow. Today we also said farewell to our caretaker, Jamie Hodges, who has been with us since 1997. The staff managed to give him a good send-off as much as is possible at the moment, with some joining in over a video-link!
You may have seen the worrying news about the local lockdown in Leicester today and the imminent shutting of schools again, but although it shows that the virus is still very much with us, at least there is some relief that the authorities are acting quickly to limit the spread. It also shows the importance of keeping to the social distancing and hygiene guidance.
Tomorrow Mrs Dineen finishes her reading of The Extincts and we will have more stories from her later in the week. As a real treat tomorrow also, we have a beautiful reading of a story from Gracie in Year 2 - don't miss watching it on our YouTube channel! She will read you Part 2 on Thursday.
In case the heat returns later in the week, here is some advice from the NHS:
Mrs Mullin has attached this week's activities for you.
