Dear North Tawton families,
Welcome back, and a very Happy New Year to all of our North Tawton families.
The weather has certainly turned with a very cold and wet start to the new year. Please do make sure children have waterproof coats as we do go outside, even in the drizzle!
Please do make sure children wrap up warm with vests, and warm socks or tights. It’s cold in classrooms with the windows open so warm jumpers are encouraged, even if not school colours.
Two children and one member of our staff had Covid over Christmas – all are on the mend and are back or due back next week.
Unfortunately three children have tested positive and are away today from Reception, Year 5 and Year 2.
The reporting and isolating guidance has changed, please keep an eye on emails and the school website updates. https://www.ntcps.co.uk/covid19.html
We continue our measures as outlined in my email this week.
Our covered outdoor area is finished! We are so excited about it! A huge thank you to FONTS who raised money over a number of years to help fund this project. We have started using it already, but will have an official grand opening very soon…
Clubs are filling up so please see which ones are still available. As in the Autumn Term, clubs are 3.30 – 4.30. They cost £1 per session, and are free for pupils who have free school meals. We limit the numbers so we have staff to child ratios and resources. Some are specifically for particular age groups or children.
This term we have: Construction Club, Girls Football and Fitness, STEM, Sewing, Netball, Story Club, Yoga & Mindfulness, Gardening and Saints Sports.
We will have new clubs each term.
This week in assembly, we talked about the Roman God Janus who looks backwards and forwards. We looked back at highlights and achievements from 2021 and made new year resolutions for 2022
You may want to discuss this at home. What were your family highlights of 2021? What family resolutions can you make together for 2022?
Please check your email regarding flu immunisations taking place at school on the 14th January.
Have a lovely weekend
All the best
