As cases of Covid are on the rise once again, I would like to thank all parents and carers for remaining vigilant and arranging tests for children with symptoms. Please remember that if one member of the household has symptoms, all members (including siblings) have to isolate until a test is completed with a negative result. I do appreciate this can be inconvenient for families, especially where there are working commitments and I thank you very much for your continued support in this.
Mrs Bird, our year 4 teacher, will be working from home from Monday 5th July as part of the Covid regulations for pregnant members of staff. Mrs LouLou will be covering the class for the remainder of the term.
Arrangements for next year
I know many of you are beginning to wonder about what schools will look like next year in terms of Covid arrangements. All schools are waiting on Welsh Government advice which should be available in the next few weeks. We will let you know as soon as we are informed.
Your children will bring home their proofs this afternoon (morning nursery will have theirs on Monday). Orders will need to be placed online and if you would like them delivered to school, they must be ordered before 4 July.
YEAR 6 PARENTS
High School Transition
Staff from Cardiff High School are visiting Lakeside on Thursday, 1st July as part of transition arrangements with that school. Unfortunately there will be no actual visits to high schools this year due to Covid.
Year 6 Leavers’ Performance
Recording is well under way for the Leavers’ Video and going very well – there are some excellent performers in Year 6. So far the weather has been kind. We’re heading to Egypt next week, so hoping for more sun, or it won’t be very convincing!
A huge thank you to Year 6 parents and carers for providing costumes, accessories, sheep, props, children for our night shoot and even making dashes to school with last-minute forgotten items – we couldn’t do it without you. (There may be further requests….). Thanks to those of you who lent us sheep for our Year 6 filming, it was much appreciated.
A reminder of the extended Covid symptoms information from Test, Trace, Protect Wales. The three main symptoms remain the same (NEW, PERSISTENT COUGH, FEVER, LOSS OF TASTE/SMELL) and require a PCR test and isolation of the sufferer and household until a negative test is received. The extended symptoms do not require either the sufferer or their household to isolate, but a test is recommended to rule out Covid if any of the symptoms are present. The ‘extended symptoms’ are: FATIGUE, ACHES & PAINS, SORE THROAT, HEADACHE, RUNNY NOSE, NAUSEA, VOMITING or DIARRHOEA. If a positive test result is received the usual rules apply regarding isolation of sufferer and members of their household.
