Good morning Clockhouse
It is hard to believe we have been under this new regime for nearly 3 weeks and what an actionned packed three weeks it is in so many different ways. Not only have we had the privilege of seeing all your fabulous learning at home and seeing you on Zoom, we have also seen what other fabulous talents you have. We have seen chefs in the making, artists in the making, engineers in the making, carers in the making, even teachers in the making and so, so much more! Clockhouse you never cease to amaze us, thank you for being simply wonderful. You commitment and resilience makes such a difficult situation that little bit easier for the staff who, I am sure you will agree, are doing a fantastic job under such difficult circumstances. In between working with you all many are also home schooling their own children so can certainly sympathise with how hard this is!
Once again we saw great engagement from you all with the Zoom sessions, with Google Classroom and Class Dojo. Well done to you all! This week we had a 90% uptake which is the same as last week. We would really like this to go up this week – can you help us? It is so lovely to see you all and thank you so much for keeping to the rules. If you are having any difficulties joining meetings, please do let Class Teachers know and they will do all that they can to help you. Also 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.
Well done to all those who have taken part in ‘Socks for Clocks’. It is lovely to see you taking part – keep them coming. It was also great to see Zoom and Hawaii turn blue with you all taking part in – ‘Feel-good Friday Fashions’. Keep an eye out for what next week’s theme will be. We hope you all enjoyed Achievement Assembly on Friday and will be looking for are next Home Learning Heroes and Hawaii Heroes come Monday. It really is a tough choice, we have so many Heroes at Clockhouse!
Have you seen the information about #ourclockhousehearts appeal which came out last week? Have you spotted any hearts in windows when you have been doing your daily exercise with the #ourclockhousefamily logo? Do let us know where you have seen them and get yours in the window for all to see our united community during this time and take a picture and send it to us.
We do continue to ask that you do not put undue pressure on yourselves or the children at this difficult time. Please remember that whilst learning is important to keep progressing with learning and to keep some routine going, having fun is also equally important. I hope you have all had a good rest over the weekend so that you are ready to go again on Monday, week 4 here we come!
I have not put the normal list of what is happening in this week’s update as nothing has changed from the previous week, but obviously any questions, please do just ask!
Should you need to come onto school site, please be aware that all the rules and expectations that were in place prior to the holiday remain. Please do ensure that you keep your physical distance and that you wear masks when on school site unless you are exempt. If your children are in Hawaii, please do ensure that they are not sent into school if they themselves have symptoms of Covid or if a member of the household does. The whole household MUST isolate until tests results are received. Should you require further information, please follow the link below:
If you do not have a child in school, please do let us know if your child is unwell or a member of the household, we do still care about you all obviously and are all still part of the same community.
Please be aware that if you have requested food vouchers, all being well, they should arrive tomorrow!
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. Whilst we do still anticipate disruption moving forward and do not know how long the current arrangements will remain, we will of course do all we can to support you and thank you for your support without which we cannot do what we are doing.
Look out for the first video to learn the dance for ‘Clockhouse does Strictly’ coming your way tomorrow.
Stay safe team Clockhouse! Have the best week possible.
#ourclockhousecommunity – the best there is!
