Track and Trace

Please note that if your child develops symptoms of Coronavirus in the first 48 hours after their last day at school, it is important that families let school know for Track and Trace purposes. Please email head@northmundham.w-sussex.sch.uk in this event. We will then keep in touch with you to learn the outcome of their Covid test.

The school is not having an INSET day on Friday 18th December, we will finish as usual on Friday afternoon.

Dance Festival KS1

Well done to the Year 1 Class who recently participated in the Key Stage One Dance Festival. This was a competition that was held virtually using Microsoft Teams, where 8 local schools showcased their wonderful dances to each other. Our song was ‘Reach’ by S Club Seven. This dance was chosen to help brighten up the days through expressive dance during Covid 19.

It was a successful occasion as North Mundham were chosen as the winners for ‘Best Entertainment Value’ and ‘Best Performance Value’. We are very proud of their achievements. Keep up the wonderful dancing!!

Reading

Well done to all of those KS2 children who achieved their bronze reading certificate before
half term. If you have not quite managed to get there yet, you can do it. Make a routine at
home to help you get this as soon as possible. This makes a huge difference to your learning
in the whole curriculum.
With this in mind, have you seen a new reading book for your child since half term? Check in
and make contact with the class teacher if you need help. We all want to see the children
reading as much as possible.

Lockdown Number Two

As we enter the second national lockdown, we understand that this will once again add
pressure to some of our families. While schools remaining open will alleviate some
pressures associated with the first lockdown, we recognise there are a variety of pressures
that can affect people at this time. We remain at the heart of our community and want to
help where we can. Please make sure you make contact with us. Often an early intervention
can help sort things out.

Technology Return Forms

Thank you to the families who have returned their technology questionnaires. We are
evaluating the responses so that moving forward we can help assist families who have to
isolate even more effectively. If you have not managed to do it yet, please could you
complete this by next week.
We once again wish you a very happy weekend. Try and get out and exercise in what looks
like lovely weather for a walk. We will all look forward to seeing you on Monday for another
exciting week at school.

Class 6’s Blood Heart Project

Class 6 have celebrated the end of their topic about the heart this half term by raising money for the British Heart Foundation. Mr Murray kept the goal for fundraising very realistic but Class 6 have far out passed this and have carried out a wide range of sponsored activities and mini sales to achieve a fantastic total of *** You can find out on Twitter by signing up and following @NMundhamSchool (It is definitely worth a look) Thank you to our Y6 learners for their amazing independent effort to support a charity linked to our current topic.

A big thank you to everyone who helped them achieve this. Mr Murray and Mrs Holden are going to find a way of involving the class in delivering their splendid gift.

Class 4 Viking Market

Class 4 celebrated their Viking topic with a Viking Market and showed off their advertising and enterprise skills as well as their Viking Knowledge! They dressed the part and everyone entered into it with lots of energy. We have tweeted some pictures on our Twitter feed. Thank you for all your support.

Wellies

This is a plea for help. We are moving into a period where the weather is going to make it harder to use our outdoor space for playtimes. As we are still operating in our bubbles, some year groups will need to use the field for part of their lunch play. We are asking if anyone has any size 11, 12, 13, 1 or 2 wellies that they no longer need and would be willing to donate to school to support children still being able to play outside. This will be a great help in keeping us safe and still playing.

Chocolate donations

A huge thank you to the families who donated a box of chocolates to give to members of our community we usually contact around harvest time. We are in the process of organising this and the children have made some lovely autumnal cards to accompany them. This is a really nice way for the school to reach out into the community and thank you for supporting this.
