I cannot tell you how nice it is to be back in school. It has been such a pleasure to welcome the children back to class and to teach them all face to face rather than through a computer! The children returned to school with such a mature and positive attitude, they have enjoyed resuming their friendships and it has been very rewarding to see them playing and working so nicely together.
I would like to thank you all for the amazing job you have done educating your children at home.
This now rather truncated term will be a busy one. The most important task is to ensure that the children have every opportunity to catch up on those crucial social skills and therefore they will have lots of opportunity to play with their friends and also to work in collaborative groups. We will be continuing the great work that you started at home looking at the different classes of vertebrate animal. Linked to this topic we will be listening to the music of Camille Saint-Saens in his work The Carnival of the Animals. We will be studying the poems written by Jack Prelutsky to accompany the music. We will be completing lots of work related to Easter.
Woodland Learning will start again this week, it will be very interesting to observe the seasonal changes since we were last able to go out. If you would like to join us any week on our woodland learning rambles please do let me know.
It is so lovely to be able to greet you at the gate in person again and I look forward to catching up with at the remote parent’s appointments currently being scheduled. Meanwhile, if you have any questions or queries please be assured my door is always open, either e-mail the office or catch me at the beginning or the end of the day.
