Head’s Blog – 9th September 2022
Welcome back to our new academic year. I hope that you have all had a wonderful summer making memories with your friends and families. It has been a rather strange week back at school, especially today spending time celebrating the life of Queen Elizabeth II. We have talked about the inspirational woman that she was and all of the different things that she achieved in her long life serving our country and the Commonwealth. As the Head of the Church of England, we have also discussed her role within the church and how her faith has supported her through challenging times that she has experienced. Finally, we watched her performance with Paddington from the Platinum Jubilee Celebration and talked about her mischievous side and how whilst she was not allowed to speak about her political beliefs she often found a way to make people know what she thought. Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this difficult time.
We have shared a detailed letter with all family members regarding the day to day organisation of school. If anyone has questions then please do not hesitate to contact us. This week we celebrated all of the children who completed the Summer Reading Challenge, I didn’t manage to get a photograph but will get one and add it at a later date!
Science at Clearwell is delivered in a practical manner in-keeping with our vision. This week Years 5 and 6 were learning about the structure of a flower – they love hands-on learning!
