A word from the Principal...<br />

Welcome,<br />

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

used to our new way of life, for the foreseeable future anyway.<br />

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

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

positive messages from you about how much your child is enjoying their new learning experience<br />

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

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

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

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

myself.<br />

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

Easter and I look forward to seeing you all soon.<br />

Kind regards,<br />

Adam Anderson<br />


Home Learning...<br />

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

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

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

and all day I have been receiving their great images. Here are a few.<br />

Class 2 have been enjoying learning about different countries around the world<br />

and looking at their national flags. They have also been practising their maths,<br />

writing book reviews and measuring plants. Finally some children have been<br />

designing Easter Egg wrappers. Well done Year 2.

Home learning...<br />

Class 4 have continued to engage in a broad and balanced curriculum, completing<br />

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

towards their home learning and am sure they will continue to be super<br />

stars. Keep it up Class 4!<br />

Class 5 have shown an amazingly positive attitude with their home learning<br />

online. Families have been amazing with supporting the children in every possible<br />

way. I have been inspired by the collaborative effort from all and the great<br />

quality of work the pupils have produced across the curriculum. The children<br />

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

photos, digital images and many other styles. Keep up the great work one and<br />


Home learning...<br />

Year 6 have continued to show their dedication to home learning this week and<br />

have really shown their creativity. I have been so impressed by the amount of<br />

effort I can see being put into everything they do and the variety of methods<br />

being used to evidence their learning. I have especially enjoyed seeing photos,<br />

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

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

Home learning...<br />

The Early Years children have enjoyed completing their home learning with their<br />

parents. They have been working hard on their letter formation and writing<br />

some of the high frequency words. They have been focusing on one more and<br />

one less in maths. The children are missing school and their friends but are able<br />

to stay in touch with each other through the EYFS parents Facebook group.<br />

It has been great to see<br />

so many Science activities<br />

being investigated at<br />

home from across the year<br />

groups. I have been very<br />

impressed with the range<br />

of responses too, which<br />

have included the use of<br />

video, reports, powerpoint<br />

presentations, quizzes<br />

and factfiles. Keep an eye<br />

out for new investigations<br />

and new topics which will<br />

be coming up soon and<br />

can all be accessed using<br />

things that you will find at<br />
