Tuel Lane Infant School 11th December

Much to our frustration, the school phone is still out of order. To contact us email admin@tuellane.calderdale.sch.uk or ring our temporary mobile 07736 298141

Well done to the Rabbits, Badgers and Foxes for their fantastic outdoor Christmas Carol Concerts this week. We hope you enjoyed watching them as much as the children enjoyed performing them.

Next week is the last week of term before Christmas, and as ever, if you think anyone in your household has Covid symptoms, do not send your child to school. Inside school, we are doing everything we can to keep everyone safe. Please act responsibly and if you have any doubts at all, phone us to check and talk things through.

Staffing Update

Next week will be Mrs Hanson’s last week working in Rabbits class before her baby arrives. Although Mrs Hanson won’t be starting her maternity leave until March, she will be mainly working from home from after Christmas onwards due to Covid restrictions. She will be keeping very busy with coordinating the special needs work in school during this time, and developing home learning plans.

We welcome Mrs Larissa Flanagan into Rabbits class to teach the children on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from January onwards.She will be in class on Monday 14th December to meet the children.

Covid Updates over Christmas

If your child tests positive for Covid-19 following school breaking up next Friday, please let school know by emailing head@tuellane.calderdale.sch.uk. It is essential that parents continue to check their emails from school over the holidays, as this would be how you would be informed if there was a need for your child to isolate.

Training Day Reminder

A reminder that school is closed for staff training on Monday 4th January 2021. Staff will be working on developing our curriculum. School reopens for the children on Tuesday 5th January.

Our new topic for the first half of the Spring term will be Frozen Planet. We’ll send out more information in the first week of the new term.

Christmas Parties

Rabbits, Badgers and Foxes will all be having a Christmas party in their classroom on Friday 18th December. School will provide a party snack and there will be dancing and party games. Your child is welcome to come to school in their Christmas party clothes.

Nursery will be having their party on Wednesday 16th December.

Christmas Jumper Day

Thank you for your generous donations to Overgate Hospice for Christmas Jumper Day. Mrs Hibbert is still busy counting up all the money! We’ll let you know the total figure when we have it.

Thank you for all of your support in what has been a very unusual Autumn term. Have a lovely Christmas break, and stay safe. We look forward to welcoming you all back in 2021!
