Good morning Clockhouse
I hope you are all well and keeping safe and the same is true for your wider families. It really is such a tricky time but we must do as we are told and stay at home for the good of everyone and so that we can come together again as soon as is possible. In the meantime I hope you are enjoying your time together and making the most of this very special family time!
We hope you enjoyed the video message that we sent out yesterday and all the different things that came your way during last week. It was lovely to see so many of you following Mrs Everingham’s work out, getting involved with Mr Yarrow’s challenge as well as our community coming together (from a distance) for St. George’s Day. You all looked fabulous in your red and white! We also hope you found the changes we made to the way work was set and what was set, following your feedback, useful. Please do feedback anything else that you think will help us and others.
As I said last week, please do not stress yourselves or your child, all that we send out is designed to give you a range of things to do and we do not expect everything to be done. In terms of priority, should you want this, the work on Google Classroom is probably the most important. The rest provides you with a mix of things to keep you busy should you need this. From all your photos, it has been lovely to see all that things that you have been getting up to. There have been so many hidden talents to see, we really are so proud of you all. Having lots of fun and spending time as a family at this difficult time is also so, so important. Please just do what you can, we totally understand how hard it is!
This week, the following is still the case:
Look out this week for a special challenge that we need your help with – you will need a toilet roll! This will be coming home as the challenge of the day for Monday, so keep an eye out for that. There will also be two further challenges next week, where we will be asking for you help.
Do not forget you have your Greek Day on Thursday. We are looking forward to seeing your costumes. If any other year group wishes to get involved you are of course welcome – please send your pictures in!
We are busy planning a special week for you all for the week beginning 4th May and this will include celebrating the very important VE Day on 8th May!
Please keep sharing your pictures with us, we love seeing them and it really does brighten up our day. By sharing with us via class dojo or our other platforms, we will take this as your consent for wider sharing. If you do not want photos shared please do not send them.
These are very strange and difficult times for us all and we will continue to do all we can to support you, please just ask! We really do miss you all and truly cannot wait see you again – let’s just hope that this day is not too far away!
I am sure you will want to join with me in thanking those in our community who are front line and key workers and also our great staff team, they really are amazing and I do have to say how proud I feel personally, to have the honor to lead such a great team, school and community – thank you to you all!
Look out for the April Newsletter coming out this week. It is a bit different to normal, but I hope you like it all the same.
We are still one community and are here for you all. Our school – a family and a home for everyone!
Keep smiling and stay safe
