It has been another good week for all children. The learning online and in school has been amazing and the children have risen to every challenge given. Mr Barr and Mrs Ellison have attended the morning meetings, which gave them an opportunity to see many of the children who are not able to come into school. Read what they have to say below. If parents/carers would like to share ideas for remote learning or contribute to the newsletter please send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to years 3, 4, 5 and Kerr class for having me in your morning meetings this week. It was really lovely to see you all, especially the children at home. I enjoyed the catch ups, show and tell and seeing you start your day. I look forward to sharing more mornings with you, have a brilliant weekend. Mrs Ellison
The attendance for the meetings this week was much better. Thank you to all the children who attended. A special thank you to Jones and Ava in year 4, who were in their uniforms and ready to start their day of learning.
Our thanks to all the parents who are supporting the remote learning activities. Staff have been working really hard to provide learning and enjoy seeing completed work when it is uploaded, your continued hard work and support is appreciated. SLT have also been monitoring the work given and were really impressed with the content and quality of the work provided across the school. Our thanks to the teachers and support staff for their hard work and commitment to our children and their learning.
COVID 19 Lateral Flow Tests
From this week, all staff are being asked to take a test twice a week. Regular testing will ensure we continue to maintain a safe school environment for children and staff. Parents please note; frequent testing could mean that we have to close bubbles as a preventative measure but you will be informed of this as soon as possible. We thank you for your understanding and patience at this difficult time.
End of Term
We end the first half of the spring term next week Friday 12 February 2021. There will be no remote learning during the half term Monday 15 to Friday 19 February 2021. This should be a week when parents and children relax and enjoy getting out for walks or doing something special together. Remote learning will resume on Monday 22 February as well as the morning meetings.

Another great start to the day in Yr1. We have finished English on @Showbie and now the children at school are having a go on the @ReadWPhonics app. A great app for developing phonics skills and knowledge https://t.co/fKPoPuiNib
