Hello Parents/Carers! Please remember, if you are a Key Worker and need emergency child care because you have been called to the frontline and there is no one else who can look after your child, then ring Mrs Naylor or Mrs Thompson to discuss the possibility of a place. We should only be your last resort. School is closed on Good Friday and Easter Monday. Thank you for the many uplifting emails I have received which I will be passing onto the staff! Please read my message in the left column below and keep checking this over the holidays as I will be tweaking it!

WELCOME TO YEAR 5

Today we begin our Easter break - a school holiday different to any we have had before!

The end of this term has come with big challenges and a situation none of us would ever have expected to find ourselves in.

Myself and Mrs Brook miss you enormously but what has made us feel better is seeing how well you have all coped.

Parents, you are doing an amazing job of home learning and filling your children's days with learning and love.

Children, we are so proud of your engagement, resilience and positive attitudes - we have loved seeing your photos!

Now we have come to the Easter holidays we would like you to recharge your batteries, have fun, eat chocolate and enjoy family time.

Thank you for all your support and hard work.

Keep safe and take care of yourselves and each other.

With love from Mrs Bonner & Mrs Brook

Happy Easter from us all here At EventShaper – EventShaper
