Year 6 Children Self isolating September 11th to 28th

As a result of a child in the Year 5 /6 Hamstead Before and After School bubble  having a positive result in a test for Covid 19 the children and staff of this bubble have to isolate for 14 days. The letters sent by the before/after school provider explained that your child needs to self isolate at home for 14 days after the positive case was last in school. This means a return to school on Monday 28th September. If your child is well at the end of this period they can return to usual activities.


Thank you to parents and children for their support. To have to isolate after only a week in school, after an already lengthy period out of school is unfortunate and disruptive to the planned learning of your child.

The pages on this TAB provide suggested learning for this period, and will be added to so that your child is able to complete some learning at home. To access each daily activity click on the star above. (Clearly, if your child becomes unwell during this period School would not expect them to complete suggested activities.)

Once again, thank you for supporting School and your child at this time.

We highly recommend using the Reading plus site, for which children all have login and password details. They used this resource in Year 5, and it provides them with differentiated tasks matched to their level of reading development. School has purchased this resource for children to use at home in school and its use will be promoted further as we come to terms with the difficulty of books being allowed to go to and from school.


Any responses to these tasks can be emailed to where they will be marked by staff.

Alternatively children can write answers on paper, which should be set out neatly and returned to school when children return.
