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.

Thunk of the week

A thunk is an unusual question that makes you think: or as Ian Gilbert explains more eloquently: A beguiling question about everyday things that stops you in your tracks and helps you start to look at the world in a whole new light.

If the hands fall off my clock, is it still a clock?

If I deliberately drop a bucket full of paint onto a canvas, is it art?

What if I drop the bucket accidently?

Which is more important, being right or being nice?

Would Monday be?

Can you have a conversation with an invisible friend?
