3.6.2020 CONFIRMATION OF DELAY TO SCHOOL RE OPENING We will continue to determine our pace of phased school re opening based upon evidence from scientists, medical professionals and statistical data including SAGE. To date, the reports and broadcasts of Professor Peter Hornby (Professor of Emerging Infectious Diseases and Global Health at the University of Oxford and Chair of the UK government's New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group), John Edmunds (LSHTM) and Jeremy Farrar (Biomedical research) conclude that relaxation is too soon due to test, trace, isolate not being fully operational, the R rate still being very high, 8000 current infections a day and there is little to confirm the role of children and schools in transmission, levels of cases in the UK are still high (324 deaths on 28.5.2020), contact tracing is not up and running tracking new cases and following them up within 48 hours which potentially, should a wider reopening take place too soon could lead to a further lock down. Therefore, we will continue to take a safe, measured approach to opening our doors wider based upon all of the above which we believe is our best chance in ensuring the safety, health and well- being of children, families, staff, families and community. School will therefore NOT open to wider year groups before the 15th June. Thank you as always for your support Nichola Russell Headteacher

Writing can be fun, it can be an adventure. Writing can help to heal our hurts and sort out worries in our minds. Writing can inspire our imaginations.

To practise and embed your writing skills whatever your year group, use these creative writing prompts to get writing! Write as much as you want, let your pencil take you on an adventure, let the prompts inspire other ideas and just have some good fun with words! You can respond to the prompts in whatever way you like- a poem, a comic strip, a story, a piece of factual writing...whatever you feel like! You could even illustrate your writing! If you want to share any of your writing with Mrs Waddington, she would love to read it- email it to:fwaddington@sandal.wakefield.sch.uk
