Roundwood Primary School Weekly Update

Our weekly update of important School information, Year Group updates, and Dates for your Diaries

11th December 2020

Whole School Updates

  • Updated Headteacher’s Blog for October and November now live – https://headteacherdotblog.wordpress.com/
  • Studybugs​​ – Please get the free Studybugs app, or register on the Studybugs website, and use it to tell us whenever your child’s ill and unable to attend school. Get the app or register now: Studybugs – Parents
  • Christmas gifts and cards this year… We still want the children to be able to send cards and gifts as they usually would as this is a big part of their festive celebrations. This year we will simply quarantine before sharing, and of course – once received, you can quarantine at home too if you would like. We will ask all cards to be in school by the 14th December and then these can all be distributed before the end of term. We really want Christmas to be as close to normal as possible because this is so important for our children.
  • Tuesday 15th December  – Christmas party day. All children will need to bring in their favourite picnic lunch.  There will be no school hot meals provided that day.  All that have paid for a hot meal at Gawcott will be refunded.
  • If your child walks or rides home, please could you ensure they have adequate high-visibility wear on, along with lights on bikes and scooters. We have had reports that whilst pupils are being sensible whilst walking and riding home, they cannot be seen sufficiently in the dusky afternoon especially with the fog we have been experiencing. Thank you for helping us to keep our children safe.

​​Year Group Updates

Foundation Stage

  • If anyone has any unused socks/knickers/pants they could donate to Foundation stage, we would be extremely grateful.  We are getting quite low in our spares.
  • Can we remind all parents to be respectful of others when parking at Tingewick to drop off or pick up their children.  Many parents have to collect siblings at other schools and need to be able to leave promptly once their child is collected, thank you.
  • Please find the link below to the second edition of Learning at Home Together, which will be sent out half termly. It contains eight resources cards.
