Weekly update - Friday 3rd April

Dear Parents / Carers


Thank you to everyone who is sending us suggestions of activities and resources - we are continuing to add resources to the Working at Home Work area of the website here


Some of these suggestions include


 - Window Pictures - Colour a rainbow to put up in your window or having an art gallery in your window - this really brightens up our walks around the village


 - Going on a Bear Hunt - inspired by Michael Rosen's book - people have been putting bears in their windows and gardens for people to spot


 - Keeping in touch with your neighbours at a distance - keeping in contact and offering support to those who may be staying at home at this time, is really important. 


 - Contacting local care homes to offer support in forms of letters and pictures - Austenwood Nursing home in CSP has asked for letters or pictures to be emailed to them or popped into their post box - 


The CSG Coronavirus Village Support Group now has a website with details of help that they can offer and contact details for your road co-ordinator. Please do look at their website when you have a moment. Thank you to them for all of the work that they are doing to support our local community. Details of ways that you can help are given on the Support Network page on our website here 


School work will not be set over the Easter holidays but if you are looking for ideas of fun things to do please have a look at these suggestions of activities, virtual museums, colouring templates as well as links to the Steve Bagshall weekly Q&As and PE with Joe.and Dance lessons with Oti.

It is also important that there is a distinction between term time and holidays. Your children have been working hard and they need to rest and relax so that they are ready for the summer term. We are looking forward to hearing what you have been up to over the holidays- don’t forget to send your messages and photos to the email addresses that have been shared today.
