18th June 2020 Newsletter

 

Dear Parents, Carers and Guardians,

I hope you are all well and managing to remain positive and optimistic as we enter more weeks of significant chance.

Thank you to everyone who has been in touch either via email, phone call or in person as you drop by to collect things; it certainly lifts my spirits to be talking to members of our school community.

School remains open for some children, but I must mention our Key Workers' children, who I have to say are the best bunch of children you could wish to work with- thank you to mums and dads for having such amazing children!

News from school:

Miss Bailey has a new puppy, who I have met via Zoom, she is totally gorgeous, Mrs Scull has inherited a large cockerel in her garden, it just seems to have appeared, Mrs Folks has an addition to her family by way of a rescue dog called Luna. Mrs Jones is anxiously waiting the arrival of her first grandchild, Miss Mac Kellar has been allocated an allotment and is busy gardening and planting and Mrs Foster ( yes me) is waiting for members of her household to learn to tidy up after themselves!

 

Thank you also for your feedback on our Home Learning Packs and materials; we have made some tweaks and changes which we hope will make life easier for you. As a busy mum myself, I know what life is like in a mixed age household, I know you will be doing an amazing job supporting members of your immediate and extended family, please don't feel you have to do any more than keep yourselves safe, fit and well. Some days are better than others, and when the weather is good, make the most of it in the spaces you have, don't fret if your children are not 'learning' for hours each day, the reality is far from that and that's OK. I am taking one day at a time and that is as much as anyone can do.

 

On Monday, we will be launching our new 5 Star Challenge for home learning where children have the opportunity to earn points for completing certain challenges. The expectation is to achieve your 5 stars each week. Challenges are linked to the core subjects reading ,writing and maths as well as  practical activities which will help you and your household. 

 All are achievable for all families whether you have online computer facilities or not. We have adjusted our Home Leaning packs to meet the needs of limited or no ICT resources.

 

You will be able to collect from school on Monday a learning pack that does not require any on line device. You will also be able to access a HLP from our website and you can either print it yourself or use it on line. Both packs contain very similar materials so all children have fair access to learning. As always please contact me or your class teachers for any additional or supplementary work, should you require it.

 

Your child's class teacher will be emailing you about this in a little more detail tomorrow in their end of the week check in. If anything is unclear after that, please get in touch.

If your child left trainers, coats and other personal items here before the shut down, you can collect any item should you be passing school as part of some  daily exercise or when you pick up a pack. Please let us know what it is you require so we can put it by the front door for collection. 

 

That is all for now, keep going everyone, I know it is tough, but every day we get through, is a day closer to the end of all this!

 

All the very best and stay in touch,

Wendy Foster

Getting ready to move up. Our Nursery children 'graduating' at the end of term. A wonderful experience - thank you to everyone for helping to make this so special.

Thank you to everyone for making our Fun Run in aid of MS so successful. We raised an amazing amount of money!

Summer Sports Days to Celebrate

Well done to three of our Year 4 pupils who have taken part in Jujitsu competitons and a three km fun run in Fairford. Thank you for sharing your successes with us.

 

We look forward to hearing from more pupils as you take part in hobbies and activities outside of school.
