    Hey all [​IMG]:) Hope your first few days back in have been going ok! Quick question - there's a section in the gov guidance about sending shared resources home which says... "Reduce the use of shared resources by limiting the amount of shared resources that are taken home and limit exchange of take-home resources between children, young people and staff." Can I just ask what you're going to do about sending reading books home? A 'quarantine' box where books go for a few days when they come back? Wiping books down? Buying more books that kids can keep? Am thinking about now, but also planning for September.

    Not sending them home at the moment, hoping to in September.

    The quarantine box is for books we use in class.

    We have recommended Oxford Owl for some RWI online books, which is the scheme we use. But also suggested parents have a look at the ORT ones there as well. We have used some of these in live lessons as well.

    The same. No books going home, parents signposted to Oxford Owl. Year 6 children can bring a book in from home to read during any down time but it stays on their table and no one else touches it!

    Nothing to go out from school and nothing to come in!

    We are sending books home. Returned books are put into a 'quarantine' box and left for a week.
