Please take a few minutes to watch our video guide which outlines the work that we have been doing in school as part of the Skills Builder project. We have recently launched our latest skills focus of TEAMWORK and all of the children are keen and enthusiastic about earning more tokens and winning a certificate. Please feel free to share any photos, videos or pieces of work with your class teacher via SEESAW if you feel that your child is demonstrating any of the skills that we have looked at so far: Actively Listening, Aiming High and Staying Positive. We look forward to sharing in the successes of your children as they become stronger independent learners and recognise the importance of skills development.
The most important thing individuals can do to protect themselves is to wash their hands more often, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water. Public Health England recommends that in addition to handwashing before eating, and after coughing and sneezing, everyone should also wash hands after using toilets and travelling on public transport.
The latest guidance and video on hand washing can be found here:
