School Update 42 - 8th May 2020

Today we mark the 75th Anniversay of VE day.  If school had been open to all this would have been a ‘special bank holiday’ to commemorate this event.  As it is, school is closed for the majority of pupils. We are isolated, not able to be with friends and family.  Nevertheless, we ‘make do and mend’ and keep going.


Yesterday, when on my daily walk I came across many different ways that members of my local community are marking this day.  There were poppy displays, flags strewn from windows and along fences as well as displays in windows. 


However, you intend to spend this day, remember when this is all over, in the words of Dame Vera Lynne, “We’ll meet again.”  Enjoy your Bank Holiday.


Thank you to all those children and parents who have contacted their class teachers.  It has been lovely to hear from you, either to:

  • confirm that ‘all is well’ at home and your child is happy with the tasks that they are doing;
  • to share some work with your child’s teacher; as well as
  • to ask for further support around a particular activity.


Today, we would like to acknowledge the work completed at home by awarding our brand new ‘Home Learning: Stars of the Week’ certificates.  These are awarded to children who have worked hard at home and have shared their work with their class teacher throughout the week.  This week, we would like to recognise:

Good luck everyone!


Please visit the Class Pages to view work that children have undertaken whilst at home, this week:


Please be aware that if you send photographs of children or of their work, we would like to use these in ‘slideshows’ which will be viewed on each class page of the school website, as a way of sharing and celebrating pupil’s work, at home unless you state otherwise. 

On Monday 11th May, the class teachers will upload the next ‘weekly bite’ for children at home.


For those who have ordered Food Boxes, they will be delivered on Tuesday 12th May 2020.  You will be able to collect them between 12.30pm and 4.00pm.


Stay safe and enjoy your weekend.
