Wednesday Newsletter May 13th 2020




Dear Parents/Guardians and of course Boys and Girls,         

As I sit here writing this newsletter, I can hear the little birds twittering away outside in the rose trees in my back garden enjoying the beautiful day! Sometimes I wish that I was a bird and then I could fly away up into the blue horizon and look down on everyone busily going about their lives and at the same time doing the right thing of staying 2 metres apart and of course washing their hands regularly. You are all doing so well and are fantastic!

Well done to everyone who is working away on their school-work and the resources being sent to them from their teachers on Class Dojo and SeeSaw. Remember that everything the school does and sends you is to HELP you and not in any way to add pressure. You can only do what you can do and IT IS MORE THAN ENOUGH!

We are here for you all in anyway possible.

No one is alone and the support of family, friends and teachers is so very important. We are here for one another in good times and most especially in sad times.

Speaking of good times, over the next few weeks, starting this Friday, there will be regular little surprises for you all, boys and girls, so make sure to read your emails and Class Dojo and SeeSaw platforms…… lips are sealed, I cannot reveal what the surprises are at the moment!!

Remember to keep in contact via the school’s email address, the school website and Twitter and of course keep in contact with your class teacher. We always love hearing from you.

And now for Miss Murray’s joke

What day of the week are most twins born? ……Twos-day!!
