Week 8 (11.05.2020)
I hope that you and all of your family are safe and that you managed to enjoy the bank holiday weekend - albeit in a different way.
As we enter Week 8 (including the Easter Holidays) we all find ourselves trying to make sense of the Prime Minister's announcement last night. Like you, school leaders heard this for the first time at 7pm. His plan for easing current restrictions includes a hope for a phased reopening of primary schools with some primary pupils, specifically Reception, Year One and Year Six, returning to school by 1 June 2020, at the earliest.
As we understand it, we will be receiving clarity later today as I am sure you as parents, have many questions, as we do at school. The guidance expected later, will be specific to schools and will hopefully answer the questions that we all have.
In the short-term, nothing has changed, and ensuring that the children, staff and parents are safe remains our priority and this will continue to be the case.
We will update you all as soon as we know more information.
I have uploaded the learning projects below, but all information for today's learning has been uploaded on to Goggle Classroom.
The daily prayers for this week help children to relate to God in a personal, fun and tangible way. The prayer allows children to think of God not as a distant figure in the sky, but as a personal God who came down to earth and walked and talked just like we do!
The prayers for each day are the same: a litany of 12 prayers and actions. Adults can encourage children to follow the actions by joining in themselves! The prayers naturally conclude with a more reflective tone, so please encourage children to close their eyes and reflect at the appropriate moment during the prayer time.
Thank you for your continued support.
If we can do anything to help, please get in touch by calling the school land line, the mobile number or emailing the helpline.
Take care of each other. We are missing you all.
