Weekly reminders for week beginning 8th February 2021

Good morning Clockhouse
Can you believe it is Week 6 and the final week of this half term. For many of you it has probably been the longest half term ever but in many ways it has gone quickly. I am sure that come next week (week beginning 15th February) many of you will be looking forward to a week off – no Zoom, no Google Classroom (I can almost hear the sigh of relief)! But do remember you are doing a great job, so much better than many of you give yourselves credit for! We are also very aware that some families (children included) are not looking forward to half term and the lack of routine and structure. Again you are not alone. Please do talk to us and we will try to help you.
So one more week of Home Schooling and then a week off before we are back to it on 22nd February. Let us hope that by then we are getting closer to knowing a more concrete plan for the return to school for everyone! We can but hope!
Again last week there was great engagement from you all with the Zoom sessions, with Google Classroom and Class Dojo. Well done to you all! I am actually delighted to inform you that this was even better than the previous week. This week we had a 93% uptake in live learning and a 97% uptake in remote learning. Can you help us improve it again this week? As always, thank you so much for keeping to the rules and 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 took, part in – ‘Feel-good Friday Fashions’! We will be carrying this on after half term. 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 continues to be such a tough choice!
Thank you also to those who have put your hearts in the windows. Can you spread the word – can we fill Collier Row with Hearts, how far in the world can we get them? Can you help us get our heart appeal as far as possible?
I hope you have all had a good rest over the weekend so that you are ready to go again on Monday, week 6 here we come!
5 more get ups till you all have a well-earned rest. The school will be closing on Friday for half term and we will be back on Monday 22nd February bright and early, ready to get back to it! If you do need us over the holiday, please dojo or email Responses may be slower than normal, as obviously the staff will also be taking a well-deserved break.
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.
#ourclockhousecommunity – and what a fabulous community you are!
