Summer Bag Collection

We would like to invite you to collect a ‘Summer Bag’ from school. This pack will contain:

  • School report
  • Exercise books from this year
  • A summer learning pack
  • Any class photographs ordered before lockdown

In order to maintain social distancing, we have staggered the times for collection over a week (w/c 13th July). Please note that if you have more than one child in school all of your children’s bags will be available at your youngest child’s collection time. The times are based on the first letter of children’s surnames.

Holy Week

Easter is a really special time for us at St Andrew’s and we are grateful to Rev. Rachel for the work she has done in keeping this in our minds. Rev Rachel has produced a PowerPoint on ‘Exploring Easter’.

There are also a range of activities on the children’s page of the Church website.


A book for children

Axel Scheffler has illustrated a digital book for primary school age children, free for anyone to read on screen or print out, about the coronavirus and the measures taken to control it. Published by Nosy Crow, and written by staff within the company, the book has had expert input: Professor Graham Medley of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine acted as a consultant, and the company also had advice from two head teachers and a child psychologist.


The book answers key questions in simple language appropriate for 5 to 9 year olds:

• What is the coronavirus?
• How do you catch the coronavirus?
• What happens if you catch the coronavirus?
• Why are people worried about catching the coronavirus?
• Is there a cure for the coronavirus?
• Why are some places we normally go to closed?
• What can I do to help?
• What’s going to happen next?
