Friday updates

Hello all!

Well we are at the end of another peculiar week and I hope that you and your families are all keeping well. I know you're all keeping busy one way or another and being creative with the time you've been given! We have had some lovely messages from parents and we are thankful for such a great school community!


We have had a strange week in school with up to 19 children at anyone time in this week which is a little odd but Miss Nadin, Miss Bestwick, Mrs Reed, Miss Mercer and Mrs Thomas have all been enjoying themselves with their little groups. These key worker children have been an absolute credit to their parents, so sensible and caring towards each other and they have made the job here all the more enjoyable. We are happy that we can support those families who are doing their jobs to keep us safe.


Over the Easter break I am requesting that the teachers get a little head space so it will be holiday as usual. You can however continue to use the email for communication if needed.


The link below is a website which is offering free parent resources for children including E books so you may wish to sign up to this as an additional resource.


Audible have also got lots of free audio books for both adults and children.


The children this week spent some time writing letters and making cards for the local nursing or residential homes and we have had some lovely letters from the old Vicarage Care home, Treetops and Alexandra nursing home. We are happy we've helped put a smile on some faces.


We hope you all keep safe and well and I will continue to update you with any relevant information.
