Welcome to the Spring Term in Reception

Dear Parents & Carers.

 

What an unusual start to the year! Things have been very different so far this term because of the national lockdown but hopefully we can start to get back to some form of normality soon. 

I’ve been so impressed with the remote learning and learning in school that’s happened so far this half term. Everyone has adapted so well to using Seesaw and Google Meet and it’s been wonderful seeing you all everyday. We will continue with remote learning after half term until the government allows us to safely reopen schools to everyone. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

After half term we will be running our own ‘Inspiring Change Maker’ projects so you will have ownership over what you choose to investigate and explore. During the first week back we will be posting videos on Seesaw to help and guide you to plan your own project which will last five weeks. I’m really excited about choosing a goal and aiming high to make a difference to one of the UN Sustainable Goals.

 

If your child is in school please make sure they come with appropriate clothing for the weather, this includes a nice warm coat. Could you also please send your child in with a spare set of school clothes in case they need to change during the day. The children love playing with the water, messy play and soil in our gardening area but we only have a limited amount of spare clothes and underwear, and they disappear quickly! We’ve been getting out into our Wilderness recently when the weather allows. Hopefully you’ve been making the most of the dry frosty days at home too. We do Outdoor Learning every week on a Tuesday and will be starting to grow our own vegetables soon, perhaps this is something you could also have a go at alongside your remote learning.

 

Kind regards,

Mrs Harding
