Well, our Summer term has finally come to an end and, as we complete this strange and challenging school year, we would like to say a huge congratulations and well done to all pupils who have continued to work hard with their learning and education, whether at home or in school.
Many of you have missed your friends and staff, put up with parents or carers as ‘temporary teachers’, struggled to get up in the mornings, enjoyed new challenges and activities with family, and coped with new routines. You have all been amazing (parents/carers included!) and we are so proud of how hard you tried to keep learning and practising important skills.
We were so pleased to see many of you bravely return to school over the last few weeks to complete transition to your new classes. We have all missed you at school and want September to be safe and worry-free when we return.
We hope you will all have a relaxing, safe and restful summer holiday and we look forward to being back together in school in September. We are sure many of you will have questions and concerns about what the new term will be like so please check our website news and updates section for the latest information about our plans for returning.
A number of parents have asked us about work that can be continued through the holiday weeks so that children are ready, as much as possible, for their new class and year group. Hopefully, you have received your SeeSaw login details and can access planned activities on this new, exciting learning app at home. Our teachers are working hard to set special SeeSaw tasks each week in July/August.
Remember to keep reading, practising your Year group spellings and testing your times tables recall on Times Tables Rockstars. We will also include links to other resources you can continue to use.
Special awards and congratulations to our Website Superstars who submitted most work whilst at home.
