Thanks to our amazing governor Emma Liddy and to the fab team at Teach Rex for organising a dinotastic delivery of free lunches to our children at Riverside. We even made it onto BBC Breakfast this morning!
 
We wanted to say thank you!

In school, we use White Rose Maths, so the children will be very familiar with it.  They have put together lots of home-learning resources for you to access during this time.  Follow this link to go to their website and find out more. https://whiterosemaths.com/

We are extremely grateful to Atrium Restaurant at Carr Farm Garden Centre who, due to having to close during the COVID-19 pandemic, have donated their food to us.  Names have been picket out of a hat, and food packages will be arranged and delivered today.  Mrs Bowness will be in touch by text message, and Ms. Williams and Mrs Marsden will be doing the rounds!
 
If you are lucky enough to receive a food package, please wash the containers and return them to school (when you can.)  We will then return them to Atrium Restaurant at Carr Farm Garden Centre, when things are a bit more settled.

The List Says: “The fewer children making the journey to school, and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society.”
 
THE FEWER CHILDREN IN SCHOOL THE LOWER THE RISK
 
Please see an updated letter to parents regarding places for Key Workers. 

PLACES MUST ONLY BE REQUESTED IF IT IS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL AND THERE IS NO-ONE ELSE TO LOOK AFTER YOUR CHILDREN
 
“If at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be” 
 
School will be open next week for lunches only. Packed lunches will be available for collection only from the F2 door between 11am and 12pm. Please email the school office on schooloffice@riverside.wirral.sch.uk to request any lunches so we know how many to expect.

Following latest advice, if you - or anyone in your household - develops a cough or temperature, the whole household is to self-isolate for 14 days. Please be safe & sensible and follow the advice. This will not affect your child's attendance.
 
During these difficult and uncertain times, we want to keep you up to date with what's happening in school, as well as the latest advice we have been given, and we will do that here as well as on our Twitter account - @Riverside_Pri (https://twitter.com/riverside_pri.)  Please remember, you don't have to have your own Twitter account to view the school account.
 
Each year group has their own Year Group page, which you can get to by clicking on the Year Groups tab at the top, or by clicking here. Here you will find information from the teachers.  This will be updated periodically. 
 
All children have been provided with a pack of work, should schools have to close, which also includes login details for different learning platforms.
