Updated handwashing advice

It is essential that everyone washes their hands more often, using soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Hand washing with soap employs mechanical action that loosens bacteria and viruses from the skin, rinsing them into the drain. Drying hands afterwards makes the skin less hospitable to the virus. Hand sanitiser can be effective if soap is not available or the situation makes using soap less feasible (i.e. when outside) but using hand sanitiser provides none of the virus-destroying friction that rubbing your hands together and rinsing with water provides.

The latest guidance and video on hand washing can be found at:

The e-Bug project is led by Public Health England and has a dedicated webpage for learning resources on hand washing and respiratory hygiene.

Summer Term

Our Christian value this half term is:







Read, read, read and then read some more- question your child about what they have read using the five W’s.

Below is a link to recommended reads for Year 5 children:

Ensure your child is practising their times tables on a regular basis  and support your child with learning their weekly spellings.

Encourage your child to research about the topics they are learning in school. 



International Peace Week

We celebrated Peace week by creating peace chains with our families. We wrote quotes and poetry and also participated in a worship in the peace garden. Can you spot our peace chains in the photographs above?
