We’re nearly at the end of this crazy year.
It’s been a long time but we’re not too sure where we’ve been.
We’ve had good times …
Do you know what? I’ll let Take That say the rest.

Learning, learning, learning
We have had some lovely emails recently.
The body parts pictures were brilliant and certainly put a smile on our faces!

Home learning help
The teachers at school have been talking to some families who are continuing to learn from home this week. There was a common topic of conversation : this is all dragging on and becoming quite tricky at times!
It has been a long time since we have all been back at school with our classes and we understand that home learning is challenging. Here are a few links that might help if you are wanting more activities to engage your child.
This is great for working on all number facts and you can try to improve your own score. We use this in school on iPads but can also be played on laptops : https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

Monstrous art work
The Colour Monster story has been very popular this week. We have thought about our emotions and discussed how many emotions we have been feeling over the last few months. It is a difficult time, so doubly important to talk about your feelings and try to find things to do that make you happy.
Living and Learning – We’re all the same and all different
Our Living and Learning learning this week links with the British value of mutual respect and tolerance. We aim to promote empathy and understanding in our school, making it a happy and healthy place to learn. We celebrate diversity and challenge prejudice. We have talked about this with the children who are in school and hopefully you have had discussions after watching the ‘We’re different, we’re the same’ video, which was part of the home-learning this week.
Here are some things that children said in school this week.
People should be treated equally.
It’s not fair when people are treated differently.
We should stand up for what’s right like Rosa Parks did.
We are kind to everyone!
It is good to be different and like different things.
