Half Term

Well done everybody you have made it to half term (extra special well done parents!). Please make sure you have a lovely break over the week. We have been very impressed with all of the pictures of work that we are being sent by email each week. It is lovely to see how you are engaging with the work set and to know you are working hard even when you are not at school. This week we have seen some fantastic mini-beast work, we hope you enjoyed it. Her are some photos of some of this weeks lovely work:

There is no expectation to do any work over the half term break. We would love you to keep reading though so if you can then please remember to visit the Oxford Owl website to read a range of online ebooks. Remember parents you can also read books to your child from this website too, just click the tab for ‘see all ebooks’ and you should be able to see a wide range of books from a variety of levels.

Staff are currently working hard to devise a plan for June 1st for the possible reopening of school to some children. Mrs Ellis will continue to keep you informed over email so please make sure you are reading the emails sent from school as these will have all of the relevant information in them and may also require a response from you.

Please find below a lovely little video that helps to prepare children for not being able to hug others. It will be difficult for young children to understand that they can’t meet and play with others in the same way that they did before but hopefully this will help to start those discussions so that children are prepared for when the time comes and we can see others again.

Have a lovely half term, we hope the sun shines and we all manage to have a safe relaxing time. Please try to ensure you and your family adhere to the social distancing rules as some children may be back in school after the break and we need to ensure all families safety
