Head’s Blog – 20th March 2020

This is all rather surreal as this will be my last blog post for a while. It is a challenging time for every single one of us. When we heard that schools were closing and social distancing is taking place we made the conscious decision to make the last few days of our children’s education (for now) as one to make memories. We have had all of the children that we had in together. They have made cards, coloured, painted, watched a film and played inside and out. We have taken the time to talk to the children to find out if anything is worrying them and relay any fears. For most they are going to miss their friends. We have reassured them that they can contact them in other ways, please support them with this. Take care and see you on the other side of COVID-19.

We also said goodbye for now to Mrs Stirrup, who is now in self-isolation until her baby is born. We wish her and her family well and we look forward to seeing the new arrival when they have been born and when it is safe to do so.

Gym Competition

I am extremely proud of our gymnasts that competed at the competition last weekend. All of them had personal bests. We didn’t get the chance to celebrate in Worship but for those that were in class earlier this week, we shared individual successes whether it was the achievement of remembering your entire routine in front of an audience to achieving a gold medal. Here are some photographs of all of our gymnasts.

If Clearwell children would like to their home learning with us then I will be able to share it with everyone else to inspire them. Thank you and most importantly take care.
