School Closure Weekly Newsletter


Dear Parents

I hope everyone is okay and keeping safe. We have now come to the end of a half term and as such no home learning or correspondence with the class teachers will happen next week.

We are just finishing week nine of the school closure, although we are not really closed because everyday we are open to key worker and vulnerable children. It has been wonderful to see the amazing work on your class pages. It was great to see Tiffany's video presentations about her art work from Forget-me-not Class, Charlie's limerick from Orchid Class, beware the giants have invaded in Buttercup class, join in with the wonderful counting song in Sunflower class plus there is more news from Wonderland, this time about stolen jam tarts from Ella in Poppy Class. Do please take a look at all the wonderful work that has been completed.

Over the coming week we will continue to get the school ready for the return of Year 6 on Monday 1st June, Year 1 on Tuesday 2nd June and Foundation on Wednesday 3rd June. It will be great to see their smiley faces around the school again. A big thank you to my wonderful staff for enabling me to have the three year groups back on a full time basis while still supporting the Key Worker and Vulnerable children in the other year groups.

Please can I remind all Foundation, Year 1 and Year 6 parents that I need confirmation on whether your child will be attending by Monday 25th May at 10am. If you have already said yes or no that is fine but I need to know from the parents who were not sure until they saw the plan. Following this information being submitted, I will then let you know which 'bubble' your child is in, start and end times plus the location of drop off and pick up.

I will be doing my normal Friday phone calls to check on those children we have not heard from this week, either virtually or through submitted work.

Have a wonderful half term and once again thank you to the key workers who are working so hard to look after us and keep the country going.

Please stay safe and take care.

Kind regards

Amanda Willis
