A word from the Principal...


As we move into the second week of what would have been the Easter holidays, we are all getting

used to our new way of life, for the foreseeable future anyway.

I would like to thank our amazing staff team, who have continued to come into school to provide

essential care for those in need and facilitate your children’s online learning. I have received many

positive messages from you about how much your child is enjoying their new learning experience

and love the engaging work that has been set; the feedback they are receiving; the freedom to be

creative and in some cases, the chance to speak with their teacher, face to face online!

These are challenging times for us all and if there is anything that we can do to improve this experience

for you or your child, please do not hesitate to get in contact with your class teacher or


Finally, despite the difficult circumstances we find ourselves in, I would like to wish you a happy

Easter and I look forward to seeing you all soon.

Kind regards,

Adam Anderson


Home Learning...

Year 1 have been set many challenges this week. One of them, following a love

of The Cat in the Hat books, was to take a picture of themselves and use the

editing tool to ‘Suess’ themselves. As always, year 1 did not fail to surprise me,

and all day I have been receiving their great images. Here are a few.

Class 2 have been enjoying learning about different countries around the world

and looking at their national flags. They have also been practising their maths,

writing book reviews and measuring plants. Finally some children have been

designing Easter Egg wrappers. Well done Year 2.

Class 4 have continued to engage in a broad and balanced curriculum, completing

tasks set for them and extra! I’ve been very impressed with their attitude

towards their home learning and am sure they will continue to be super

stars. Keep it up Class 4!

Class 5 have shown an amazingly positive attitude with their home learning

online. Families have been amazing with supporting the children in every possible

way. I have been inspired by the collaborative effort from all and the great

quality of work the pupils have produced across the curriculum. The children

are using a variety of methods to display their work such as: videos, drawings,

photos, digital images and many other styles. Keep up the great work one and

Year 6 have continued to show their dedication to home learning this week and

have really shown their creativity. I have been so impressed by the amount of

effort I can see being put into everything they do and the variety of methods

being used to evidence their learning. I have especially enjoyed seeing photos,

videos and drawings of what they have all been up to, even enjoying some music

using home made instruments. Keep up your brilliant work Class 6

The Early Years children have enjoyed completing their home learning with their

parents. They have been working hard on their letter formation and writing

some of the high frequency words. They have been focusing on one more and

one less in maths. The children are missing school and their friends but are able

to stay in touch with each other through the EYFS parents Facebook group.

It has been great to see

so many Science activities

being investigated at

home from across the year

groups. I have been very

impressed with the range

of responses too, which

have included the use of

video, reports, powerpoint

presentations, quizzes

and factfiles. Keep an eye

out for new investigations

and new topics which will

be coming up soon and

can all be accessed using

things that you will find at
