As we start a new week I just wanted to say thank you on behalf of your children. Many of you have structured a new routine and are accessing the on-line materials we are posting for you. Some of you have struggled to do this around trying to work at home and some you have just about managed to keep your children amused. These are tough times and you are all doing a great job even if you feel it isn’t going well. Anything you are doing to keep things ‘normal’ is helping.
Please don’t get stressed if the worksheets don’t get done or your 'home school' has an off day. We are in this together. Please don't worry about children regressing in their learning - we have a fantastically talented team who will pick up the education of your children when they come back to school. In the meantime the teachers are available on email or the phone for a chat. What is more important at this time is that you stay as positive as you can and enjoy the time you now have together as a family. Share a book, eat meals together, venture out for a walk and simply have a chat. Keeping a routine will definitely help and I would recommend the Joe Wicks daily on-line workout, which by simply watching, will raise funds for the NHS. The worksheets will also help to keep the children’s minds active and give them a focus but they cannot replace what we do in school. These are unprecedented times and working together we will do what we all can to ensure we come out of this as best we can.
We have had an incredibly busy week sorting Wootton Lower School in the new world and soon I will sort out some on-line assemblies and other things to keep you all smiling. Mrs Hall has already been busy on the latter!
Take care of yourselves and hold your close ones closer.
