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.
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
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
