Sports Day!

Thank you Mr Hodgkin for planning such a fantastic Sports Day for us. Children showed their skills and athletic ability in all kinds of events including running, jumping and throwing events, and of course…sack races!
We’re sorry the current restrictions means we weren’t able to invite parents. But please take our word for it, your children loved it!

Bristol Together Championships

Dear Parents,

We usually like to take part in all kinds of sports competitions with other schools. This has not been possible this year because of Covid restrictions. However, one event that is going ahead is the Bristol Together Championship. This is where schools across Bristol partner up as teams to play other schools. It’s a great way to have fun and meet children from a different part of our fantastic city. This year, our Year 5 pupils have been partnered with Four Acres Primary School. They have been training together to take part in a tournament next week. Good luck Team Cabot Acres!

Community Surge Testing

Dear Parents,

Community surge testing: additional COVID-19 testing for specific postcodes BS2 9**
What surge testing is, who can have it, where to get tested and what to do after your test.

Bristol City Council doing additional community testing, also known as ‘surge’ testing, to help us learn more about the mutated COVID-19 variant in Bristol and South Gloucestershire.

It will also help reduce the spread of infection by finding asymptomatic cases and prompting people to self-isolate.  We’re only doing this testing in specific postcodes, as a sample of the Bristol population. These postcodes are the areas where people who don’t have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are eligible for additional testing. This does not mean that the variant is necessarily present in that postcode.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, don’t come for surge testing. You should book a coronavirus test on GOV.UK.
Who can get tested
You can get a test at one of our new mobile test sites or collect and drop centres if all of the following apply:

you’re over 16
you live in one of the postcode areas below
you do not have any symptoms of COVID-19 (you’re ‘asymptomatic’)
You can also get a test if you:

travel into these postcode areas for work
are in a support bubble with someone in these postcode areas
You are strongly advised to get tested if you’re eligible. We’re asking you to take one test in this two-week period of additional testing.

You can still get a test if you’ve been vaccinated or are having regular lateral flow tests for work.

Remote Learning

The Prime Minister has asked that schools close to most pupils from 5th January 2021. Your child’s teacher will provide remote learning.
Children in Reception and KS1 will be taught remotely using Seasaw, we have found this to be a more accessible platform for our younger children. Children are expected to complete 3 hours of learning daily; this will include online learning and tasks that can be completed without a device. Teachers will set daily lessons in reading, writing, maths and phonics as well as another curriculum area. The lessons provided will include: videos recorded by the class teacher, videos from other agencies such as BBC or Oak Academy and tasks that can be completed on Seasaw.
Children in KS2 will be taught remotely using Google Classroom. Children are expected to complete at least 4 hours of learning daily; this will include online learning and tasks that can be completed without a device. Teachers will set daily lessons in reading, writing, maths and spelling as well as another curriculum area. The lessons provided will include: videos recorded by the class teacher, live lessons in Google Meet, videos from other agencies such as BBC or Oak Academy and tasks that can be completed on Google Classroom.
Please encourage your child to use the online resources we are providing. Your child’s teacher will call you and your child regularly to see how you are and see if you need help with learning. If you are unable to access online learning because you don’t have suitable devices or internet connection, please let us know. We have a small number of devices in school available.
We also have a limited number of spaces in school for face to face teaching. These are for key workers and vulnerable children. If you are a key worker and need provision for your child to enable you to go to work, please contact the school.
We are also trying to offer as much face to face teaching as possible for children who are unable to access remote learning successfully at home. To enable us to help as many children as we can as safely as possible, these places will need to be part time.
We know how hard remote learning can be and will be doing all we can to support you and your children
