Head’s Blog – 8th April
Another term is over and we are still standing, despite COVID doing its best to disrupt education. I am grateful to all of the community, inside and outside of our buildings for the support that they have given us during the last two years. None of us could ever have predicted the impact of a pandemic on our lives. I am really proud of the children, who despite have disrupted learning in one way or another, for making such great progress in their learning. This is testament to quality of the teaching and learning taking place. I want to thank Mr Burby who has been teaching in Y5/6 for 3 days a week, he has shown a great deal of commitment to these pupils. We are looking forward to Mr Rob Hulse starting after Easter as the permanent Y5/6 teacher. It seems a long time ago since he was appointed.
The Easter Service was wonderful as we were able to welcome parents back into school. Thank you Mrs Williams for recording the service, it has been shared on Class Dojo. The readings and singing was fabulous and a huge thank you to Olivia Dance who accompanied the children on the piano. We are very fortunate that Olivia is continuing to work with our children preparing a ”sing song“ For our Jubilee celebrations on 21st June. We will be sending out invitations to that event but needless to say all of our families and members of the local community are welcome.
Oak class have been learning about the environment and wrote me a letter asking if they could go on a litter pick in Clearwell. The letters were fabulous, so how could I refuse? We borrowed pickers from the Parish Council and yesterday the children set off around a very windy Clearwell tidying up. They had a fabulous time. Now we need to source some new hi-viz vests as ours have disappeared in school – not sure how!
