Good morning Clockhouse
Welcome back to the second half of the Spring Term everyone. I hope you have all had a relaxing half term and have made the best of the holiday considering the circumstances we are in. Hopefully, soon we will know more about what the coming weeks will look like. We can only hope! I am sure many of you will be eagerly awaiting the announcement from the Government tomorrow to explain the roadmap for children returning to school. Whatever is said, please do bear with us and respect the time we need to plan. As I hope you know, we will communicate with you as soon as we can.
We are very much looking forward to seeing you back on Zoom on Monday as well as being on Google Classroom and Class Dojo. All Zoom times remain the same as do the rules and expectations. The engagements on Zoom sessions, with Google Classroom and Class Dojo was fabulous last half term – let us not only keep this going this term but make it even better! Please remember that we are here to help you in any way that we can. If you need a call at any time just let us know. We are all here to help and make this experience as easy as possible.
As I explained before the holiday, please do be aware that in many of our Hawaii bubbles we are at capacity. Whilst we do not want to turn children away, it really it that tight. Please do keep true to why we are doing this - to keep everyone safe! It is a constant juggling act but we will continue to do our best. Obviously the more children we have in school the more staff we have to have and the greater the risk. If you do currently have a place in a Hawaii bubble which you no longer require please do let us know.
Well done to all those who took, part in – ‘Feel-good Friday Fashions’! There were certainly some interesting outfits! Look out for the theme for this week coming your way soon!!
Our hearts continue to spread far and wide and as I am sure you have seen Clockhouse Hearts have been seen as far away as New Zealand, Australia. Poland and lots more. It has been great to see so many of you getting involved with the OCA / Keystone ‘Clock the Key’ challenge. Remember to take your finished form to Keystones in the High Street to get your prize – it is still not too late!
As I communicated with you earlier in the week, please be aware that we are unable to order this week’s vouchers until Tuesday and are unclear as to how quickly they will be distributed. We will order and schedule them for Tuesday but this is completely out of our control. Apologies in advance for any inconvenience caused.
Please contact the school if you have any questions and we all look forward to seeing you virtually or face to face again this week. Stay safe team Clockhouse! Have the best week possible. Thank you for all you continue to do to make this hard time a little easier for us all. I am sure you would join me in thanking the fabulous staff team for all they have done as well.
Please watch out for further communication this week following Monday’s announcement.
Look out for the launch of 'The Clockhouse Masked Reader' tomorrow as well as a special video!
#ourclockhousecommunity – and what a fabulous community you are!
