This week's News Round-up
Getting to the heart of the matter!
This week Flamingo class had the gory pleasure of dissecting a pigs heart to enhance their learning about the human circulatory system. We spent time investigating the different sections of the heart and compared it to a diagram of a human heart. We couldn't believe the similarities! Mrs Blinston Jones

Girls Football Results
Well done to our Girls Football Team who drew 0-0 with Reculver this week. Mr Baker said they were very resilient against a very strong team. Lily nearly scored in the second half, but it unfortunately hit the bar. Go Team Endowed!
Queen's Jubilee: Bank Holiday
You may have heard that the country has been given an extra Bank Holiday for the Queen’s Jubilee but as both Bank Holidays lie in the May half term we, as a school, have been given an extra day to replace the Queen’s Jubilee Bank Holiday. The day given in by Kent is in July and is a day that we are already not in school due to Staff Development; so we will take the Queen’s Jubilee Day off on Monday June 6th . Term 6 therefore will be: Tuesday 7th June until Wednesday 20th July 2022.
CHANGES TO THE SELF-ISOLATINO PERIOD FOR THOSE WHO TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19
From Monday 17 January, people who are self-isolating with COVID-19 will have the option to reduce their isolation period after 5 full days if they test negative with an LFD test on both day 5 and day 6 and they do not have a temperature. For example, if they test negative on the morning of day 5 and the morning of day 6, they can return to their education or childcare setting immediately on day 6. The first test must be taken no earlier that day 5 of the self-isolation period, and the second must be taken the following day. All test results should be reported to NHS Test and Trace. If the result of either of their tests is positive, they should continue to self-isolate until they get negative results from two LFD tests on consecutive days or until they have completed 10 full days of self-isolation, which ever is earliest. Anyone who is unable to take LFD tests or anyone who continues to have a temperature will need to complete the full 10 day period of self-isolation. Further information on self-isolation for those with COVID-19 is available.
