I hope that you are all having a lovely half term week – isn’t the weather amazing? It is so lovely to be able to sit in the garden and go to the park and I bet that lots of you have had great fun in your paddling pools.
We are all fine at school and we have remained open throughout the holiday for our Keyworker families. Thank you to the staff for, once again, supporting this and enabling it to happen. As I am sure you can imagine, we have been really
busy getting school ready for the return of Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 children in the next couple of weeks. The staff have been amazing and thank you to you all for your support and understanding as we enter unchartered territory once
A letter about the new arrangements for Home Learning will be sent out on Monday. As more staff are in school we are moving to weekly work and this will be uploaded to the website on a weekly basis. We will continue to use the class
email system and will continue with our regular phone calls and Zoom meetings although these may not happen as often. Don’t forget that you can always contact us if you need anything and we will be open on both sites from Monday 1st June.
As time is going on I know that some of the children may be feeling a little worried and anxious. Things keep changing all the time and it can be difficult to feel settled. Some of the children will be thinking about a possible return to school and wondering what that may feel like. We will send detailed information out in the next two weeks to the parents of children returning to school and we are putting together resources to use at home and at school. Please encourage the
children to talk to you about any worries they may have and let us know if we can help in school.
My assembly this week includes the story ‘The Huge Bag of Worries’ which may help.
Take care everyone. We will be thinking about you all – keep in touch.
