As we finish Week 2 of Learning at Home I would like to tell you how proud we are of all of you. You have been making us so proud!
You have had to completely change the way you learn, share spaces in your home with your family and see your friends less and many of you will be missing school and other hobbies you used to do after school. I know that all of these things are hard for you all, but remember by staying at home you are doing a very special thing- you are helping to keep people safe and healthy in our community and helping the Dr’s, Nurses and all of the other wonderful health workers who look after people who need their help.
I am so impressed with the amount of effort you have been making to do your best with the learning your teacher shares with you and many of you have been taking part in Mrs Tracey’s challenge too. I know that many of you are helping your younger brother or sister with learning and spending lovely time playing together.
I have been so proud to see how kind you are to each other too, on Teams I can see many of you are giving each other helpful advice and kind compliments and that is wonderful.
Thank you for sharing all your learning with us too! We love to see the photos of what you have been doing or just hear how you are getting on. We really are missing you all so much, but feel like we are still with you!
Every Friday I have a video meeting with all the staff in the school and we talk about the week. All of the staff are so impressed by the wonderful things you are doing and the things that your families share with us. We think your families are doing a fantastic job too, looking after you and helping you, it’s amazing!
Many of our staff are working in other schools just now which are open for children whose parents are at work, in the hospitals or supermarkets and so those children need a place to go and learn. Some of our staff are helping with lunches at our school and all of the staff are thinking about you all each day and thinking of learning and fun things for you.
We hope you enjoy the holidays now have lots of time to relax and play. We won’t be sending learning for the next two weeks but please take part in the Easter Art Challenge, we hope to share every single entry with you, so you can see your own and all of your friends, their might be some entries from the staff too 🙂
I am going to send your parents some ideas for Creative and Fun activities to do in the holidays but you should only do this if you all agree, you might be able to help in the house a bit more over the next two weeks too, there are so many important life skills you can develop. We look forward to hearing about that too!
A massive well done to you all children, you are fantastic! I saw this poem today and thought I would share it with you:
