Dear Sea Otters,
I hope you have been enjoying the home learning tasks that have been set. Mrs Fifield and I have really enjoyed looking at the photographs that your adults have sent to me. The Science experiments seem to be going well and if you haven’t had the right equipment, you have managed to find alternatives.
I have also been checking regularly on Reading Eggspress and am amazed at the time and dedication some of you are spending on there: completing the assignments I have set, designing funky avatars to look like you; one even had its own PPE mask and earning bronze, silver and even gold trophies!
I have been very busy at School, keeping the Key Worker children and staff happy and safe. They too have worked really hard during their time here and are making the best of a very unusual situation.
I hope you all have a really wonderful half term with your families – let’s hope that this beautiful weather lasts and you will be able to have fun in the garden or public spaces that are now open.
I will be spending time at home in my garden and am hoping that Mr Broad will light the BBQ every evening and I know that Mrs Fifield and her family will be getting out Henry’s paddling pool to let him play in.
In case you don’t know how to fill your time next week – here are a few suggestions:
Water fights, building dens in outside spaces; baking cookies or cupcakes; designing pizza faces before cooking and eating them; email a class mate using an adult’s email; play board games and complete a large jigsaw puzzle or plan the family’s meals for a whole day.
Whatever you do, stay safe and positive. We can’t wait to see how much you have all grown up.
Love from Mrs Broad and Mrs Fifield

Hi Sea Otters,
I hope you are all well and have been keeping busy, safe at home with your families.
I have missed seeing your eager faces at School and seeing how hard you work every day. I have planned the home learning activities for you so that you can continue to keep busy and find out new and interesting skills and facts – well done to those of you that have already given some of them a go and sent in examples of how the tasks turned out, to show me.
I have also seen that some of you have logged in to our new Reading program – Reading Eggspress and started collecting your eggs. If any of you are having trouble logging in then just email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will try to support you from home.
I have been busy weeding and planting in my garden when I haven’t been at school, I am going to try to grow my own vegetables for the first time this year – wish me luck!
Mrs Fifield has been keeping her little boy entertained with lots of fun dinosaur activities.
I will be listening out for the loudest Sea Otter claps on Thursday evening for the NHS staff, so make sure you all show your appreciation and give it your best effort!
Speak to you all soon, stay safe Otters
