I hope that you've been able to have some sort of an Easter break and welcome to our very first remote summer term!
We've all had to adapt to new ways of working, so I wanted to take the opportunity to say what an amazing job you're doing supporting your child's well-being and learning during this time.
It's definitely been a strange and challenging time, so it's ok if you and your child feel wobbly and worried at the moment. We're here for you every step of the way as we figure this all out together. Remember, if you have any concerns about helping your child learn or you need any other support from the school, please let us know. You can contact your child's class teacher by email, use the contact form on the website or telephone the school office.
We miss the children very much, but we must follow the government's guidance to keep everyone in our community safe. We are open to children of key workers and to our vulnerable children. For those at home, try not to stress about home learning. Do what works for you. Encourage your child to read each day, access the online maths resources and have a go at the activities that are below. We will continue to add to these regularly, but don't feel that you have to do it all. The most important thing that you can do is to get your child through these difficult times - reassure them, laugh with them and keep them active.
If you need paper copies of any of the packs, please contact school using the contact form on the website.
We love seeing the children's fantastic learning at home, so please keep sending their work in via email to your child's class teacher.
We can't say yet when we'll be able to open the school fully, but rest assured that we'll continue doing our utmost to keep your child learning and our school community connected.
Please keep checking this page, your child's Year group blog and the Whole School blog as additional work and ideas for home learning will be posted regularly.
