Good morning all,
As this would have been the start of the Easter holidays, we would recommend that you make sure you and the children have some downtime over the next fortnight. We will continue to send the challenges out as this is fun learning, and please do keep sharing all your activities on the Class Teams.
The staff will also be taking a break for some of the time and will therefore not be holding the twice-weekly class meets, but will check in on their class chats from time to time. Of course, the children are welcome to keep messaging one another: we love seeing what they are up to. The school office email will be checked regularly for any urgent queries.
Many of of the staff are working in the Georgetown Hub in order to provide childcare for children of key workers. I would remind you that this is emergency childcare, and should only be used as a last resort.
Some parents were in touch to say that they were running out of books! Please find a Literacy ideas sheet attached from the staff to help with this. I would also recommend Penguin Kids, Oxford Owl and Audible online, who are sharing lots of e-books and audiobooks for free during the school closures. I am also loving World of Walliams and Moat Brae who are doing daily storytimes online: great stories and great voices!
This Weekend’s Why Don’t You is attached- have fun!
lots of love Mrs Gamble xx
