Newsletter sent Sunday 11th of July 2021
All the children have worked extremely hard completing their final assessments in Elm. Together, we made a list of everything we had to complete and they have enjoyed highlighting them as we did them. I love a tick list!
Unfortunately, I have been isolating due to my husband testing positive but luckily I have escaped and tested negative. Last time it was my daughter! We thought we’d escaped and were almost at the end but this new variant seems to be rampant. Even a double dose of the vaccine has not stopped it spreading. Please take care.
I know that the children all enjoyed their second session of Bollywood Dancing and I hope they have been giving you demonstrations at home. The dance teacher was very impressed and added a few more challenging moves.
I have been video calling into the class to make sure everything has been running smoothly; Mrs Armstrong and Miss Bliss have been absolute stars! Thank you. It was lovely to keep in touch with the children and to continue the daily chats that we have.
Please make sure they come to school in PE kit on MONDAY AND TUESDAY. On Monday they can wear red and white too. Fingers crossed for a good result in the football! Hopefully, they will be on the field so it is important that they have suitable footwear such as trainers or pumps.
If you have any questions, you can still contact me using the class email address email@example.com
Have a fab weekend,
Mrs Dowell & Mrs Armstrong
The children have had a busy week this week continuing to complete their end of year assessments for reading, maths and writing. We have also been talking about all the things they’ve learnt and what they can do now that they could not do before coming to Beech Class so they can see what brilliant progress they’ve made in such an unusual and difficult year.
They have all tried their best, which is all I ask, and I am extremely proud of them. It was incredibly hard choosing just one certificate winner this week so I have also given out CROW Awards to some children today for their amazing effort in their writing assessments. Well done to all of you and especially our certificate winner Oliver.
They had a fabulous time Wednesday completing their Bollywood dancing routine and I hope you’ve all had chance to watch it on Tapestry. After having had only two taught sessions I think they were amazing! Today we have been practising for our Sports Day next week. We will be trying to capture some of it for you to post on to Tapestry too, so please make sure you let me know if you don’t have access for any reason.
I know there is an exciting weekend ahead waiting for the big match on Sunday but please try to listen to your child read and don’t forget to practice spellings (new ones are in their book bags tonight) as they will have their final test on Friday!
Have a fab weekend. Fingers crossed for Sunday night!

I hope you have all had a great week!
In Literacy, we have been performing our play scripts that we published using the laptops in school. It was lovely to watch the children’s play scripts ‘on stage’ and their excellent acting skills.
In Maths, we have been completing our assessments, I will be giving children feedback on their results next week. They have all worked extremely hard!
Next week in topic, we will be learning about Roman food. We are planning on making ancient Roman biscuits and then eating these with strawberries and blueberries the following day. Here is the recipe we will be using, please let me know of any allergies in advance.
Have a great weekend,
Miss Bliss, Mrs Davies and Mrs Evason
Please see the letter below detailing the changes to the School Rules, we would appreciate your feedback.
A lot of the children and families in the school are very excited for Sunday nights football match.
We understand that a lot of children will be staying up to watch the match and maybe slightly tired on Monday morning!
Therefore, we are offering two start times on Monday morning. If you would like to drop your child off at the normal time of 8.45am this is fine. All staff will be in school as normal.
Alternatively you can drop your child off at 10am to give them and you a little extra lie in!
We just ask that you only come in at those times you can’t come in in-between those times.
Children can also come into school wearing red and white if they wish!
Regardless of what happens on Sunday night I think we can all agree the team have done extremely well and we want to celebrate this in school!
Fingers crossed for the result we all want!!!
We have a total of eleven pupils in the Year 6 bubble who have tested positive for Covid 19. We hope those children are feeling ok and we wish them a speedy recovery.
Year 6s who have tested negative can return to school on Monday. If you have not yet tested your child it is vital that you do before they return to school on Monday.
If your child is one of the positive cases you must follow your own return date (end of isolation) this may not be the 12th. Isolation is ten days from the onset of the symptoms or ten days from the positive test if you have no symptoms.
If you are unsure if your child can return, please contact the office.
It is vital that we all follow the rules to keep everyone in school safe.
Fingers crossed we can now make it to the end of term with no more bubble closures!
Thank you for working with us during this difficult time we appreciate it is not easy and we thank you for your co-operation.
You have the right to play and rest.
We are extremely pleased to be able to welcome back our Year 5 bubble tomorrow morning.
Thank you all for your co-operation during this period. All tests have come back negative.
We continue to ask that if your child has any of the symptoms (stated previously) that you isolate them and get them a PCR test.
We are all working together to ensure we keep everyone safe and we thank you for your co-operation with this.
Unfortunately we believe there is a delay on the return of tests. Therefore, the Year 5 bubble remains closed until further notice.
Please remember we will update you as soon as we are updated.
As you are all aware we have two bubbles shut in school currently. We are trying our best to maintain everyone’s safety in school and we thank parents/carers for the co-operation so far.
We are reminding you that we require your child to get a PCR Covid test if they have any of the following symptoms:
Loss of taste or smell
We also require your child to get a PCR test if they have any of the symptoms below:
Aches and Pains
Feeling tired for no reason
*These extra symptoms are from Shropshire Council and are agreed by Governors
We have now seven children who have tested positive in the Year 6 closed bubble.
We thank all the Parents/Carers who have got their child tested and to those who have notified us of the positive results.
We strongly advise you get your child tested if you haven’t done so already.
Stay safe all.
A reminder if your child is self isolating and we have not closed down the class bubble (your child is isolating due to close contact with a positive case) It is your responsibility to contact the school office to request your Free School Meal Voucher. You must do this on your child’s first day of absence.
We have issued vouchers now for FSM pupils. If you have not received information you must contact us by 3.15pm 06.07.21
We apologies for the short notice with regards to the year 5 bubble closure this morning. However, this was unfortunately out of our control. Public Health contacted us as early as possible and we followed their advice.
We have been given information over the weekend from parents and Public Health (based on this information) have advised that it would be sensible with the current situation in school to close the year five bubble.
If this situation changes it maybe possible for the Year 5 bubble to return to school. We will of course update you as soon as possible when we find out further information.
The Class Teachers will be in touch with remote learning information as soon as possible.
We will also be in touch with Free School Meal parents/carers as soon as possible.
Thank you for your co-operation.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
