To Starfish Class,
I hope you have all enjoyed the home challenges that we have set as well as the other fun activities your parents have been doing with you. You have been learning at home now for a whole term and from the photos your parents have been sending me, I can see that you’ve been working very hard. It has been very strange and different having to learn this way but it fills me with so much happiness and hope to see how resilient, happy and enthusiastic you all still are. I have spoken to all of your parents over the phone recently and it was great to hear that you’re all staying safe and well. I hope you are enjoying this quality time with your family and making the most of it. You’ve done so well up until now and it makes me so proud to be your teacher.
It’s nearly time for you to have a break. The weather is supposed to be really nice from now on. There might be a few rainy days so keep looking out for rainbows! Your Mums, Dads and Carers have earned a well-deserved rest after all of their hard work too, so as the half term is coming up make sure that you continue being really well behaved, keep those listening ears on and try and help out around the house as much as you can! I know you can do that as you’ve already achieved so much.
If you would like to, have a go at some of the half term activities we have set you below!
Missing you lots,
Miss Walsh, Mrs Eaton & Mrs Busbridge

To Starfish Class,
I hope that you all had a great Easter and are all having fun spending time with your family at home. I know it must feel strange being at home a lot but you will get to see all of your friends and teachers eventually. For now, you still need to be following the rules at home, listening to the adults and having lots of fun completing the activities that I have been setting for you. I’m very much looking forward to seeing some of the work that you’ve done when you come back to school. I’m sure some of you have been creating beautiful rainbows and posters. (I have seen lots of lovely drawings in windows when I walk my dog). You might not understand why you have to stay at home right now but by doing this you’re really helping all of the special doctors, nurses, paramedics and other people whose job it is to make people better.
Mrs Eaton, Mrs Busbridge and I are really missing you all but it’s lovely to see that you are working hard on Reading Eggs online. I can see that some of you are reading a lot and completing activities and this makes me feel really happy. Keep up the hard work and be good!
From Miss Walsh
