Welcome to this week’s Celebration Newsletter!

We had such a great response to the last newsletter! It seems like you really appreciate some positive news and recognition of activities that the children have been doing. We are very proud of all of them and how they are adapting to these unsual and unprecedented times. We have been so impressed with some of the creative ways they have been learning, whether it be building a village in Minecraft or completing a home-made obstacle course!

Of course we must mention the children who have had a birthday this week, we hope you had a wonderful time on your special day.

We would like to say a big Happy Birthday to the following!

Liam W  who turned 8 on 30th March

Indy A  who turned 6 on 31st March


Good Work

Some amazing work has been on display again this week on the Padlet streams! We would also like to say thank you to the parents who have given us such positive feedback and seem to love it as much as we do! If you haven’t had a look yet, we would like to encourage you to log on and keep in touch with classmates and teachers. We’d especially like to see more from Class 6! You don’t have to post photos, you can just leave comments or messages if you wish. The teachers really love to see what their class is doing and offer support and activity ideas if needed. We miss seeing you all!

Message from Mrs Ainley

You will have been at home for a little while now, and things may seem strange. You could be feeling worried and missing your friends and the family members that don’t live with you. You might even be missing coming to school!

Please try not to worry. There are lots of amazing people who are working very hard to solve the problem so that things can return to normal. You may have heard or joined in with clapping for the doctors and nurses who are helping those who have fallen ill to get better. But it’s not just the doctors and nurses that are making a difference – you are helping too!

It is a very important and responsible thing we are doing, as it is helping to keep people in our community healthy and safe. You should be very proud of yourself.  Being apart will not last forever, even though it may feel like it at the moment. 

Lots of people are decorating their windows with rainbows or messages of support. They remind us that even in difficult times, there are always people who care about us and people who help. Together we can change things for the better. 

Kindest Regards

Mrs Ainley
