News: Headteacher Update

Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope you are keeping safe and well during these challenging times and that you managed to have a good rest over the Easter break. Our staff continue to do an excellent job in the Holywell Hub, supporting the children of key workers. On behalf of everyone, I wish to thank them, for their continued commitment and dedication.

As you will also be aware, staff have been keeping in touch with you all, using a range of formats; seesaw, purple mash and now Google classroom in Years 5 and 6. I thank you again, on behalf of all staff, for continuing to support your children with the work that is being set, on a weekly basis. Please do not feel ‘under pressure’ to complete all tasks. It is far more important that children do ‘some activities’ each day and then have time to be active, do jigsaws, read a book, play board games and participate in any kind of other ‘fun’ activities. They will still be learning from all of these experiences and a balance of work and play ensures everyone’s ‘well- being.’

In school, our day is ‘divided up’ into opportunities to learn in a variety of ways, both indoors and outdoors and sometimes the best type of learning does not involve writing anything down, but is simply about exploring nature or learning a new skill. All these activities, ensure that children continue to learn and develop into happy and healthy individuals.

Please look out for a special post, over the next few days, that the staff have been working on, which we hope will make you all smile. They are always thinking of you all and looking for ways to ‘keep in touch.’ A HUGE thank you to them all for participating in this and to Miss Owen who has spent many hours coordinating all their efforts. Take care everyone and stay safe.
