A week of hot sunshine!

Dear Parents,

Oh my goodness what a scorcher! It has been absolutely glorious this week but very difficult to work in! My office is like a furnace so I am definitely looking forward to the weekend!

We are now right in the middle of all the end of term arrangements and forward planning for the next academic year. The announcement from the government this week that all schools will be back full time from September was a welcome relief and we are certainly planning for that! What it will actually look like and what we will be allowed to do and what will be restricted is still unknown but we hope that school will have some semblance of normality and we can’t wait for that! However, if government advice changes we will be bound by that so keep an eye open for any updates.

Letters will go out during week commencing the 6th July telling you which class your child will be in next year. A lot of thought goes into classes so please rest assured we will have thought carefully about our groupings and where children are best placed. We are currently in discussion about how we can organise some form of transition. It is likely this will differ across the school but there will be some form of contact from your child’s new teacher.

These past few months have taught us all lots of different things. They have made us appreciate different things and I do think many of us will no longer take things for granted. My working day has certainly changed and I have really appreciated having evenings at home, I’m not sure my husband would agree! We have all had to adapt and make changes and some have coped better than others, but my hope is that when we find our ‘new normal’ that we have time to stop and appreciate all the good things we have got!

Albert Einstein once said ‘If you want your children to be intelligent, read them Fairy Tales; if you want them to be more intelligent, read them more Fairy Tales’ Why not try it!

Keep safe and well and be kind to one another!

Kind regards
