FRIDAY 3rd APRIL 2020
It would normally be the last day of term today but we are remaining open for those children of key workers over the next couple of weeks. As a result, we have decided to set some fun, less time-consuming Easter-related activities.You will see that these plans and related resources are already on this page. We hope you enjoy all that the teachers have planned for you.
I have recorded a video of our celebration assembly and hopefully this will appear very soon on this page or on our Facebook page so please keep an eye out.
I hope you all have a peaceful and restful weekend and please continue to look after each other and stay safe. Mrs Wilson-Chalon will be back in school next week and will continue to update this page when she can. If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us via email or by phoning the school office.
We intend to stay open for key worker child-care Monday to Friday until it is no longer needed. School is open from 8.00am for the children of these key-workers. Just come as and when it is essential to use this facility.This is a small service we can offer and we are happy to help.
Today's school updates:
1. If you require and are entitled to Free School Meals, then hampers will be placed outside the hall for collection. These hampers will be enough for lunches for 4 days. There will be another opportunity to collect hampers for Good Friday and Easter Monday on Friday 10th April. There will then be another delivery on Tuesday 14th for the rest of that week. Please only take one brown hamper bag and one loaf or bread per child. The gates will be open between 12:30 - 13:30 but please be aware of social distancing and remain at least 2 metres away from others.
2. I am sure you were joining in the applause for our key workers last night. I found the whole thing incredibly emotional and it just shows how even though we are in lockdown and feeling quite isolated, we can all come together for a common purpose and celebrate those who are keeping the country running. What a proud time to be British!
3. A reminder that there is an exciting Easter Garden Competition being run by Wells Cathedral where children are invited to create an Easter garden. Please see opposite, under latest newsletters, for more information. You will have to be quick though as the deadline is noon on Wednesday 8th April.
4. I have also uploaded a useful document that has been released by the Children's Commissioner called Children's Guide to Coronavirus. There are some useful things on here so please take a look.
5. Please take care of yourselves and be kind to each other. Try and have some fun family time over the next two weeks and let's make the most of the time we have been given together.
Kind regards and warm wishes,
Liz Wilson-Chalon and Fraser Wallace
