We hope the Easter bunny visited you! He is a key worker so was allowed to drop off all the delicious eggs and treats!
There has been some really lovely posts this week. It’s so great to hear from you and know you’re keeping yourselves busy! Here are some of our highlights:-

Class 1 – Ivy B wrote and illustrated a story about Superworm, which we can’t wait to read when we get back to school! Bodhi C revamped a garden bench into a funky and stylish piece of furniture that looks amazing and Alex H made THE biggest giraffe window display that goes over both floors!
Class 2 – Dexter C wowed us with his colour experiment and woodwork skills for the garden and Jack W did some great work in spite of having a poorly arm (get well soon!)
Class 3 – Jasmine H created some wonderful marbling and made us laugh with the Google AR animals! Martin F decorated some little eggs for Easter and Grace A painted some beautiful pictures (the daisy was especially pretty!)
Class 4 – Neve C made a beautiful Easter garden and Edwin F constructed a Viking longship out of LEGO!
Class 5 – Sienna M-K produced a lovely collage and self portrait and Alice W showed off her wonderful artwork of a sun and moon

Message from Mrs Ainley
Happy Friday to you all!
Can you believe we are into week 4 of our country being asked to stay indoors? That is nearly a whole month. A whole month of not being able to see your friends most days. A whole month of not visiting family or doing the clubs you love. A whole month of standing away from people in the street, only being able to talk to them from a distance.
Last week, I encouraged you to be creative. Every week we are seeing people find creative ways of staying in touch. A video call to a grandparent, a football club taken in many gardens simultaneously using the computer, a Zoom call with your friends, coming out with your neighbours to clap the NHS and hearing the applause from streets away. It isn’t the same as being with those people and nothing replaces a hug, but it is certainly the next best thing. These are all special ways to stay connected with people and these connections make us feel better.
This week, think of someone you haven’t been in touch with for a while. If they don’t live close by, how could you show them they have entered your thoughts? It is always special to know that you are being thought of. You could maybe write a letter or draw them a picture. Can you imagine receiving one and how good that would make you feel?
It seems like it could be a few more weeks before we can begin to do more and even longer before we can give our friends a hug. But how special will it be when that day finally arrives? Until then, find those inventive ways of staying in touch with people.
We miss you all and look forward to seeing you as soon as it is safe.
We are hoping to publish the next newsletter on Friday 24th April. If you would like to contribute, please email us and we will pass it on to Mrs Ainley!
