Harrow has moved to the High Alert Level for Covid-19 (also known as ‘Tier 2’). Cases of Covid continue to rise rapidly across London, as well as in Harrow, so we all need to play our part in controlling the virus and keeping each other safe.
The move to Tier 2 now means more restrictions around social distancing in London and Harrow to control the spread and save lives: we must not meet socially with friends and family indoors in any setting unless we live with them or have formed a support bubble with them. This includes private homes, and any other indoor venues such as pubs and restaurants.
Please remember the guidelines we have in place for parents to reduce the risk of transmission. Please follow this checklist as closely as possible.
For Harvest this year we are undertaking a 'Help Out to Help Out'. We aren’t able to hold our usual Harvest gatherings this year so we’ve come up with a scheme whereby we can still celebrate Harvest and help others.
We want all our children to ‘Help Out’ at home in return for a donation to the Harrow Food Bank.
Traditionally in rural locations the entire community would be involved in the gathering of the harvest - everyone helping out - and a share of the harvest would support those families who need it.
We're doing the modern day version by doing our 'Help Out to Help Out'!
Please talk to your child about how they might help out at home – washing up, washing the car, sorting, tidying, preparing meals – and agree an amount of money you will donate in return for a good job done! Jobs can be done any time over the next week or so (half term is a great opportunity!)
Once everything is complete, please donate your money using the following ‘Just Giving’ link. After half term, we’ll make sure all the money goes directly to the Food Bank.
It would also be fabulous if you could take a photograph of your child doing their jobs so that we can share them with the community through a video on Pinner Park Online. Please send any photos to email@example.com
We asked you to recreate some book covers and you didn't disappoint! We will announce the winners on Monday. If we have missed your design, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know (and please accept our apology - we won't choose the winners until we're sure we've got everyone!)
Shiv and Krish were inspired by Captain Tom Moore and decided to raise funds to support the heroes in this pandemic.
They're cycling 100 continuous laps of their garden (6 km) each day for seven consecutive days.
Well done boys!
If you want to make a donation...
Well done to all our families. We are so impressed with the effort you are all making with your home learning. Thank you!
In line with our policy, if you or your child feature in any photo and you would prefer it not to be on our website, please email email@example.com and we will remove it.
Thanks to everyone who sent photos in last week. This week, we want to create our very own, Pinner Park Pop Video!
Simply film yourself (and your family if they want to be in the video!) and send it in to: firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll take a small chunk of your clip and create a single video. Should be fun!
Please follow these guidelines:
The completed video will be uploaded to YouTube as an unlisted video and will be linked from our school website. Please only send a video in if you give permission for your clip to be edited and used in this way.
Each week we're setting a community challenge to help us to stay connected to each other. The first challenge was to send a photo of you in action - getting on with your home learning. Well done everyone!
This challenge is now closed. Please keep your eye out for future challenges.
One of our challenges for World Book Day was for children to dress up or decorate a potato, based on a book character. Take a look at the pictures below - do you recognise the book characters?
Well done to all the children (and staff) who took part. Thanks to parents for supporting your children's efforts!
