The children created this wonderful chalk rainbow today. They wanted to share it with you.
Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Dear Girls and Boys of Framwellgate Moor Primary School,
These are strange days for a lot of us and we know that some of you will be feeling worried about what is happening at the moment.
School closed tonight for a little while and this is a really important part of defeating the Coronavirus, so thank you so much for your help with that. Staying away from school is difficult, and to start with will feel new and fun, but as time goes on you may start to feel a bit bored and restless and want to come back. I promise that once we get information that we can re-open we will do so.
Please try your best with your school work packs and online jobs, your Parents will help you, but many of them are not teachers and you will need to help them out a bit – try not to get upset with them – they will be doing their best to help you – Be Kind!
You can contact us on your dBprimary account if you need to, and remember to also do nice things like reading, playing games, baking … it doesn’t always have to be schoolwork.
Please try not to worry, we are all going to look after each other and will see each other soon, in the meantime anything you can send us to show us what you are getting up to would be brilliant to see – you can upload videos and photos into the ‘My Work’ section of dBprimary if you’d like to!
We miss you already but remember to do your best and make us proud!
We will see you as soon as we can,
Mrs Smith and all of the School Staff
In light of the most recent Government pronouncements on COVID-19 (Coronavirus), it has been decided that schools in England will close on Friday afternoon at the end of the school day, to the majority of its students, until further notice.
However, in line with all other schools throughout the country, we will be exploring how to follow and support other regulations identified this evening including children of ‘key workers.’ Further details about the definition of a “key worker” and what this will entail is being sent to schools from the Department for Education today and will be disseminated to parents as soon as possible.
During this period of closure, all children will continue to learn using the work packs and online resources given by their class teacher. If your child is currently not attending school, please make sure that you have a pack and the online information by visiting the Main Entrance this week before we close.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
Mrs B Smith
I am writing to update you about the school’s current position regarding Coronavirus, following the latest information from the Government.
We take the health and safety and wellbeing of our pupils and staff very seriously, and, as such, we want to reassure you that we are following the guidance from Public Health England and the Department for Education (DfE).
To minimise the spread of any infection in school we appreciate your support with the following decisions that have been made:
In instances where someone in the family shows symptoms of Corona Covid-19 the whole family should self-isolate for 14 days.
If circumstances arise where the school must close, we will inform you by letter, email and/ or the app. Again, please ensure that we have your contact details and please do download the Parent App.
We are currently making plans for supporting your child’s education should a closure become necessary and will keep you informed on this.
Prevent the spread of infection
As mentioned, we are following the guidance from Public Health England and the DfE, but this advice is now changing daily. We are doing our very best to be pro-active and make well-planned, responsible decisions.
Thank you for your support.
Mrs B Smith
Framwellgate Moor Primary School
If your child has been absent today with either a cough or temperature, please ensure that they continue to stay at home for 7 days. This action will help protect others in the school community during the infectious period. This is following the Government guidelines:
Please keep the school office informed of pupil absences.
Mrs B Smith
Year 6 pupils enjoyed a special French Day on Friday 28th of February, based on a topic called “Monter un café” (Setting up a café).
Pupils used a French supermarket matching activity to learn basic foods and drinks vocabulary. Next various games were played to practice the pronunciation of snacks, main courses, ice creams and drinks, then we moved on to reading a real restaurant menu. We played Food Bingo and then the children designed and produced their own restaurant menus.
In the afternoon, through the medium of song we practised important phrases for ordering from a waiter/waitress . Finally, the pupils prepared and acted out their own café scene in pairs, which proved very entertaining as many chose to have a waiter/waitress who got the food orders mixed up! Tuna ice-cream…non, merci!
I am writing to reassure you that here at Framwellgate Moor Primary School, we continue to take the Coronavirus risk seriously, and implement the advice given to us by the Government.
As you will be aware, there has been some mention of the possibility of schools closing and therefore I feel it is a sensible plan to give you information about what would happen if this became necessary.
We would aim to give you as much notice as possible, however, this will depend on how quickly we get this information. We would notify Parents in the usual ways: Website, App and email.
Teachers will also set work on dBprimary which can be completed online or uploaded into your child’s ‘My Work’ area when complete.
Once again, at this time we do not have any cause for concern in school, and we will continue to update you as we receive information from the Government. The aim of this letter is to reassure and not to cause alarm.
Mrs B Smith
Understandably, some Parents have expressed concern about the current situation regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19).
Here at FMPS we are following Government Advice which continues to be regularly updated and, if it became necessary, would take appropriate action based on this advice.
I would like to stress that at the present time there is no need for alarm and we do not have any reason to take any action at this point other than the usual reminders to children about thorough hand washing and catching coughs and sneezes in a tissue.
