Day 5 Celebrations
I would like to thank everybody for all the effort you have gone to this week. Staff for tackling new ways of working; parents for supporting your children and tackling new ways of working; and children for all the amazing learning you have done.
Thanks you for feedback and constructive thoughts about our Distance Learning practices. This afternoon I had a Zoom meeting with members of staff and we talked through how things were going. It was lovely to see everyone's faces up on the screen at one time. I thought the meeting would last 30 minutes but I had to cut them off chatting after 1 hour! I will send some information to you by Parentmail this weekend.
Here's what you've been up to today ...
Holly designed a Green City. The design was backed up by a clear rational for why she had included the things she had. Good to see the people are observing the Social Distancing rule!
Archie interviewed his dad about how he used Maths at work and home. I learnt something from the interview ... camera lenses still use imperial measurements.
Alex also interviewed his Dad about Maths. I asked if he planned his questions like a real journalist would.
Olivia was looking for signs of Spring outdoors:
Finally - thank you to these parents who sent me this message ...
At the end of the first week of schools being closed and ‘home schooling’ I wanted to write and say a huge thank you to you and your staff for the support you have provided parents this week. Your regular communication, together with the daily varied tasks set by your teaching staff, have made this week educational and fun for xxx and much easier for parents who, like you all, are navigating their way though this uncertain time.
We hope you and your staff (and families) and staying safe and well.
Wishing you a happy and relaxing weekend. This is going to be the strangest time - no clubs, no big shops, no eating out but you have each other and you are in the best place to stay safe.
Mrs Ingman and staff
