Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you to children both in school and at home for taking part in ‘Inside Out Day’ to raise awareness about Children's Mental Health Week. I do hope the children enjoyed the wellbeing activities on their Google Classroom and Mrs Sargeant's weekly wellbeing activities on Chatterbox, our children's newsletter. Mrs Greenslade has also been making dream jars in Forest School - if your child made one of these at home, please do encourage them to send in a picture to

Parent Consultations will be taking place virtually via Google Meet on Thursday 11th February from 1.30-7.00pm and Friday 12th February from 9.30-12.00pm. Once you have booked your slot via Arbor, you will receive a Google Meet invitation to your child’s school email account. Please note the booking system will close on Wednesday 10th February at 3.30pm. We are very much looking forward to these meetings and ask that you encourage your child to attend.

We are delighted to be able to share the wonderful news that Mrs Sanford is expecting her first child in early June. We are sure that you will join us in congratulating her and her husband on this exciting news. Mrs Sanford’s maternity leave is likely to commence towards the end of May and we are currently looking into various options in terms of covering Y3 Strong class from this time until the end of this academic year. Once we have an agreed plan, we will let you know.

Maths Week will take place next week, 8th - 11th February. This is an opportunity for children to explore maths in different ways and to celebrate the fun and challenge maths can offer. The theme for this year’s Maths Week is ‘All about me’ and will focus on measurement and comparison.

On Tuesday 9th February it is Internet Safety Day. Children in school and learning at home will have activities themed around this important day set via their Google Classroom.

Friday 12th February is an INSET day; our key worker provision will be closed and children will not be set any work on this day. There will be no live lessons on Thursday afternoon (Thursday 11th) due to parent consultations.

Finally, national treasure Sir Captain Tom, who won the nation’s hearts, sadly passed away this week. We must all be truly inspired by his amazing resilience and strength during this pandemic. At 100 years of age, he raised around £33 million for NHS charities! Sir Captain Tom - you are our hero - sleep tight.

Keep positive everyone and have a wonderful weekend.

My very best wishes,

Mrs Freeman
