Several of you will be bringing your child back to school on Monday 29th June, for the first time in 3 months- for some of you that may be initially quite an anxious time as you will be unsure what to expect. May I reassure you it is completely normal to feel like this. All of us are are looking forward to seeing the school filled with children once again and both myself and Mrs Place will be at the drop off for you to ask any questions or for you to be able to pass any information on to us regarding your child. Do have a look at the home learning page where you will find the link to a questionnaire regarding your child's experiences during lock down, this will help us to be able to know how to support your child should they have any worries.
If you are unsure about the procedures for returning please look at last weeks newsletter where it is all explained. The children who are in school, have enjoyed being back. They are really enjoining being back with their peers, ultimately children do need to be with other children. Well done for all you have done regarding home learning and the variety of other experiences you have given your children over the lock down period. All these additional things will have been such a benefit to them. We also know it hasn't always been easy, but we are gradually returning to normal.
Upon returning the children will remain in their bubbles and each bubble will be kept separate from the other bubbles. However within each bubble whilst we will do our utmost to try to ensure the children do keep their social distance it will not always possible, particularly with the younger children.
If you do have any questions or worries, please do email me and I will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible.
Have a great weekend and stay safe,
Effects of Coronavirus through the eyes of a child
I'm feeling fed up, but mum says that’s ok.
She said if she’s honest, she’s feeling the same way!
Try to stay positive and think of the good things,
like being safe, together and making new beginnings.
I’ve played with my little brother more and we’ve all baked cakes,
I’ve been on the x box and played online with my mates.
But it's not quite the same and never thought id miss school,
having a laugh with my friends and eating lunch in the hall.
It won't last forever, that’s what people keeping saying,
I hope not, its scary so here I am praying.
Covid 19 please go away, let our world come back to normal
and keep your nasty virus away!
