At the start of the afternoon of 17th SEPTEMBER 2020, I was contacted by a parent of a child in Skylarks (3) to inform me that their child has tested positive for Covid-19. The child was not in school on this day. The parents of all the other students in the child’s class (Skylarks class), have been contacted and all children and staff in this class have been sent home this afternoon and told to self-isolate for 14 days. The rooms where the class have been taught are to be deep cleaned immediately. No other student bubbles in any other year group have been affected.

Online Story Time

Here's a list of Authors and Illustrators that are doing online story time

One of the great things that is happening right now is that there are authors and illustrators that are on Facebook, YouTube and other sites for virtual story time.

This is a great way to have an author read to your kids and have them be exposed to different books and authors they might not have otherwise.

  • Mo Willems-(Lunch Doodles)
