I hope everyone enjoyed the sunshine over the Easter break and found ways to relax and unwind. I also hope that the time we are all spending together as families has been as positive as it can be, it may not feel like it at times but I am sure all your children are really enjoying the chance to slow down and experience new routines and activities with you. Be kind to yourselves you are all doing an amazing job!
Thank you for embracing class dojo our new learning platform. I have the privilege of being able to access all the class pages and I have been overwhelmed by the work the children have been sharing and the constant contact between yourselves and staff. The staff really appreciate your constant efforts with keeping on top of the home learning but they are also very mindful that this isn’t always easy and parents are also home working too! As we keep saying the most important message is to keep safe, healthy and laughing!
On the website we have added a mental health and wellbeing page in the parents section. Ms Tranmer our ELSA teaching assistant will be adding weekly activities for the children to do and there is some really useful information on there for parents in connection with supporting our children through this challenging period. We will keep adding to this.
I hope you have all been able to get involved in the sponsored events to raise money for the NHS, we have been doing them in school too and hopefully we can get an idea of a whole school amount raised.
School life for us as staff is still busy, we are all getting used to weekly meetings held remotely and conference calls as well as teaching from home. Staff are also taking this opportunity to embark on new training online that will impact on our practice when we eventually return. Daily government updates are certainly keeping me busy!
Please do not hesitate to contact us either through class dojo, by email or phone during the school day, we are here to help in any way we can.
Stay safe and enjoy this time together before we all return to the normalities of everyday life !
