Dear parents and friends,
I want to start this week’s newsletter by saying a huge thank you for continuing to adapt to the new way of learning and working remotely. Last week we continued our home learning structure with a few adaptations. The teachers are now sending an overview of the week to you on Monday and you are receiving daily emails with the children’s learning further explained. The teachers are thoroughly enjoying receiving the emails you and the children are sending to them.
I am regularly being informed as to the communication that is taking place between you and I thoroughly enjoyed reading the Celebration Newsletter on Friday. It is so lovely to see the achievements of our children. Thank you to Miss Simmons, Miss Figueiredo and Ms Smith for putting the assembly together.
Please remember the message Miss Smith sent last week for you to manage the work you are being sent home for your children the best way you can. It is important you look after you and your family’s physical and emotional wellbeing first.
Please also remember to contact your class teacher, Ms Smith or myself in school if you would like any support around home learning or any other matter.
The Department for Education is sending me regular updates. I received these last week which I would like to share with you.
