This Week

Here are some lovely photos from this week.



Bikes and Scooters for Years 5 and 6

We have had lots of feedback from families about bikes and scooters and we have been working on the best way to allow children to store bikes and scooters in school during the day. From Monday 23rd, we will be allowing year 5 and year 6 students only to bring bikes and scooters in to school.

Children should come to the gate that they normally use (Daintree on St Vigor’s Road, Sherwood in the car park, Amazon to the office gate) at the normal time. Teachers and TAs will then help direct children to the right place to store their vehicles.

Amazon and Sherwood children must get off their bikes / scooters at the top of the drive and walk down the drive and into the carpark. For their own and others’ safety, children who do not follow this rule will lose this privilege.

At the moment, we are only able to offer this to children in years 5 and 6, but we will try to extend it to other classes if we can make it work safely.


Anti-Bullying Week

We have been celebrating Anti-Bullying week under the theme of Cool to be Kind.

Atlantic class made Kindness Posters. Cian came up with a very thoughtful message for his poster which was 'Be kind to a person even when they are not kind to you’. Jhaanvi was very creative and drew the globe thinking that kindness makes the world better. She wrote 'Make the right choices'.



PE and Earrings

Just a reminder that children are not able to do PE whilst wearing earrings. On PE days, please remove your child’s earrings before school, unless they can remove and replace their earrings themselves. We are not able to help children with their earrings nor can we put tape over earrings.


Christmas Plans!

The Fulbourn Primary School Elves are busy discussing (via Zoom!) exciting plans for December to ensure we all feel in the Christmas Spirit despite the restrictions in place.  Watch this space for further news and dates!

A message from Cambridgeshire Constabulary – Lockdown Guidance

Cambridgeshire Police have put together a short video clip entitled “Lockdown 2 – The regulations explained”.  Within this video, Chief Inspector Rogerson provides a step by step explanation of these regulations, specifically in relation to children and young people.  We hope you and your families will find it useful.
