Resources for week commencing Monday 8th February:

5th February 2021

Dear Parents/Carers,

We hope that you are all continuing to keep safe and well amidst these seemingly never ending ‘lockdown days’. We completely understand what a struggle life can be at the moment and lots of us are feeling isolated and stressed out with trying to manage our children and their home learning needs, alongside our own work/general life demands. Please remember, you are not alone. There are so many of us feeling the same way. Let’s all just try to keep putting one foot in front of the other, show up in whatever ways we can and look forward to the time (not too far away now) when we can open up the school doors to everyone once again and start to get life back to normal.

It is really encouraging for us to see so many of our families engaging with the home learning ideas we put on this website each week and lovely to hear that you are all enjoying doing some of the activities too. It is great to see the home learning packs that are coming back to us completed and the reading books that have been finished with returned to school again. Well done everyone, you really are all doing such a fantastic job.

It is also lovely for us to see some of the Fledglings on our Zoom calls during the week too. We will be Zooming again on Monday 8th at 9.30 and next Friday afternoon again too. Details to follow.

Please remember the home learning packs for all children working at home will be available to collect from the School Office from Tuesday 9th Feb and new reading books will be ready then too. Just email us if you need to collect it earlier and we will do what we can.

Next week the Fledglings at school will be finding out all about the festival of Chinese New Year. If you would like to join in at home too there are plenty of resources available on the Twinkl Website that you might like to share with your child and some really good programmes you can watch together on CBeebies (or YouTube) too. At School we will be sampling some Chinese food, attempting to do some Chinese writing, playing with rice and noodles and attempting to use chop sticks as well. We will be singing the Chinese New Year Song (available on the school FaceBook page now) and I will post a Chinese Story on there next week too. It is always a really fun and interesting topic so please do send in any pictures of activities you get up to at home and we can put them in the children’s Learning Journeys. Thank you.

Please remember you can call the school office anytime and ask to speak with one of the team or email one of us if you have any questions, concerns or something nice to share – This email address is being protected from spambots.

Best wishes to you all, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all, virtually again, next week.
