As per Graham’s letter that was sent home on Friday, the government are advising that there is no longer an expectation for children and young people to return to school before September. Our extensive risk assessment process supports this position. Additionally, the R rating for the North West has been published and is currently over ‘1’. With this in mind, we are not yet in a position to re-open our schools to more children. We have further work to do to prepare the buildings, we do not currently have the capacity and space to support social distancing for larger groups and we still face many challenges relating to the return to work for our staff teams. Furthermore, our Risk Assessment process has highlighted that there is further work to be done within our current Oldham and Tameside Hubs to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our young people and staff teams. With this in mind, Miss Gordon and myself have a number of risk assessment meetings next week. We will keep you updated.
Mrs Needham has some lovely work from Showbie to share with us this week..
This week’s home education photos are going to be started by Mr Rawson’s class. Mr Rawson has shared Bronson’s achievements at his family allotment. Mr Rawson would like Bronson to know that he is extremely proud of him and all his efforts. Bronson has been working on his allotment with his mum and has been really busy building ponds and planting seeds etc.
Bronson has also enjoyed engaging with the activities on Showbie that are related to gardening and allotments..
Ms Lergio has been growing sunflowers with her class. Everyone got sent some sunflowers seeds through the post and are growing their own. They are going to be measuring them and seeing who can win the Sunflower growing competition. Ms Lergio says that she is not competitive, but she has sent her photos are below. However, I’ve got to say my sunflowers look a lot taller than yours! We had better get measuring!
