This half term we will be looking at the following value:

  • Forgiveness

- Letter from Mr Griffin

Over the past week, learning has moved from the classroom to the home. The teachers have been working hard to ensure that you have a range of exciting learning opportunities to do with your child every day. 

I have been very impressed with the level of interaction taking place on Google Classroom between teachers and pupils. Teachers in Key Stage One and Two have had regular video catch ups to review how learning has been progressing and I know some of the teachers have even recorded themselves to support the lessons.

For home learning to be successful, it requires a huge amount of dedication from you as parents. As a school, we can set the work, however we are asking you to devote your time to support with your child’s learning. This is a lot to ask as a school and we are extremely grateful for the support that you are providing.

We will continue with home learning in the current format until the start of the official Easter holidays. Home learning will then stop for two weeks over the Easter break.  The Government are still deciding what will happen to schools after this period as soon as we know more, we will inform you of this.

Within this week’s newsletter you will find many examples of children’s fantastic work from the past week. You will also find lots of useful information including activities to do at home with your children when they are not completing their schoolwork.

Enjoy the weekend and most importantly stay safe.

Best wishes

Mr Griffin
