Dear Parents and Carers,
I hope you all had a lovely half term break and enjoyed that beautiful sunshine. It certainly lifted the spirits in our house and my garden is beginning to look cared for.
This term the plan includes more video clips and slide presentations from a wide range of staff to help to keep the children motivated and engaged. We know that a slight change to how we do things in school can make a huge difference to the children and that if things stay the same for too long at school, we recognise that children get used to the approach and engagement levels can drop off. We hope that by making this adjustment to our home learning offer this will help your children to keep learning and re-engage particularly after the half term break. The feedback we have had so far is really positive with parents and children saying that this is making a big difference.
Over the coming weeks we will be welcoming more children back into school and plans are already in place to support this. We are also determined and dedicated to ensuring that the home learning offer is maintained. The children at home will not be forgotten.
So in the next few weeks despite the uncertainty of what might happen nationally/ what might happen regarding new rules/ what the Government might decide I have every faith in my team who always step up.
Today we have been making food deliveries to our known vulnerable families. They are so appreciative of this support. I would again like to thank everyone who has made a donation to this worthy cause. We aim to make our next deliveries on Friday 19th June. If you are able to support us again, please place donations at The Feathers Pub in the centre of the village.
I am looking forward to seeing more of you around school and in the village as the rules begin to change- despite it being at a distance! At some point we will celebrate being together again……just not yet!
