Pioneers Day

On Tuesday, the children in Year 2 celebrated the end of their popular topic, ‘The Pioneers’. The children arrived in school dressed as famous explorers and inventors, some from long ago and some dressed as more modern pioneers.

During the day, the children were tasked to create inventions of their own: the ‘tooth-comb’, the ‘foodinator’ and the ‘homework finisher’ being good examples. They also got stuck into a code breaking activity that required using their mapping skills to find the answer.

In the afternoon, the children showed off their fabulous speaking skills when they shared the facts they had learned in their ‘Wax-Works’ museum. The parents were impressed by the many facts they shared and the children thoroughly enjoyed their experience; they were all very well informed about their famous person.

Before the day ended, the parents came back to the classrooms to take a look at the topic work the children had produced and the ‘Journey’ stories they had written.

Well done, Year 2 children!

Conjunctivitis / Pink Eye

Dear Parents,

There have been a number of children with Conjunctivitis (also known as red or pink eye)  in the school recently. It is an eye condition caused by infection or allergies.

If you suspect that your child might have any of the symptoms below, please make sure you keep them away from school until their infection has cleared up.

If your child has conjunctivitis, they may have:

  • a red or pink eye (or both eyes)
  • redness behind the eyelid
  • swelling of the eyelids, making them appear puffy
  • excessive tears
  • a yellow-green discharge from the eye which dries when your child sleeps, causing crusting around the eyelids
  • Itchiness of the eyes and eye rubbing.

Students with the symptoms listed above need to stay home for 24 hours after the symptoms subside. If these symptoms remain for longer than a day, contact your doctor to see if your child needs to be further examined.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the Infant School nurse.

Many thanks for your cooperation.
