News from this week
A quick note to all our families and friends from our school community to let you know that you are not far from our thoughts and we are hoping you are managing to stay safe and well during these strange times.
Where has the sun gone!! I have gone back to my warmer clothes particularly when walking my dog Copper. It is lovely to see some of you whilst I am out walking by myself or with my family. I am out each Thursday night clapping and cheering for our NHS workers and I know my sister who is a Nurse really appreciates all the support.
Next Friday it is 75 years since VE day. An opportunity to do some history (Miss Matthews will be pleased) to discover why it is a day to celebrate and may be raise a glass in remembrance.
Staff have been really enjoying seeing all the pictures, emails and video clips you have been sending in. Please do keep them coming in and feel free to email your class teachers if you need any further help or support. We have been advised by HCC to move away from using Zoom and therefore we will be looking to set up using Microsoft Teams instead. This is a new piece of technology for staff so please bear with us whilst we train ourselves in setting up this new system. I will keep asking staff to update the website class page regularly, and to continue with their stories through this platform in the short term.
Many thanks to all of you who entered the Easter Egg competition. As always it is hard to choose winners from such fantastic entries. The winning designs fro each group were Ella in Nursery, Charlie in Reception, Emilie in Year 1,Vinnie in Year 2 and Amelia in the Juniors. We will shortly be putting all those children entries on the website under the FOWI page. Well done
For those children who like colouring you could enter a design a bear competition. The closing date for this competition is 5pm on May 8th 2020. So not long!!!
I hope you will enjoy reading some of the poems from the Poetry Book that Miss Morgan has collated for you all. This has been sent to all families via email. There will be some hard copies of the book in the library once we return to school. Perhaps you will be inspired to write some more of your own!! We would love to read them if you do write some.
Keep saving those crisp packets as we had an email this week saying that not only were we helping our environment by reducing landfill but we had also raised £50. Thank you!
Thinking of you all
Take Care and Keep Smiling
Miss Cockburn and the Staff Team
