Good morning to everyone, and I hope that you and your family are safe and well.
Given the current situation it seems very strange that I am saying welcome to a new term, but that is the way that we are seeing it. Over the Easter fortnight the teachers have been busy planning for the next few weeks, and searching through a whole range of new resources and ways of teaching. The daily distance learning sessions and activities start again today. Please visit your child's class page for information, and a reminder that your child's class teacher can be contacted via email if you have any questions, comments or want to celebrate your child's achievements. We will continue to review the range of learning on offer.
With this in mind, we were going to launch our term of languages today for Key Stage 2. Rather than teaching French over the year we were going to block it into a term. Each week during the time that school is closed, I will be adding a simple French language activity that the children can do at home. For example, this week we are learning the names for the days of the week. I have created a French home learning tab on the 'Classes' page of the website. I may add activities over the week, so do keep having a look.
In the meantime, the school has been open all Easter, and remains open to the parents of key workers, and as ever a huge thank you to the staff for providing such a valuable resource. I have several meetings this week with governors, the Local Authority and staff, as we continue to plan our way forward within the guidance from the government. I will continue to keep you closely informed of any developments.
Thank you as ever for your support.
