How are you all? Hope you are all keeping safe and busy. It has been a very long time since we have all met! We are really missing you all and look forward to our next zoom meeting. For those of you, who were unable to join the last zoom meeting, look out for the next one this week. We will be having a scavenger hunt, which will be great fun, and also this will be a perfect time to see each other and hear all about what everyone has been up too!
Thank you to those who have been sending us work and photographs of what you’ve been doing. We have loved seeing it and always look forward to what is coming next. We are so impressed with the ‘Half Term Challenge’. Some of you have done a brilliant job with recreating a book cover. Ellie has been very creative with the book ‘Pants’ by Nick Sharratt. She has put her teddy in a pair of oversized pants! Keep up the good work and email us at email@example.com. So that we can continue to see what you have been doing.
We have been keeping very busy planning for home learning, reading your emails, working with keyworker children in school and writing the end of year reports. We are all so lucky to have hot sunny weather at the moment. It is lovely to get outside and enjoy our gardens or even go for a walk or bike ride. This is a great opportunity to sit and read outdoors as well as participate in other outdoor activities. Mrs Uppal has been using the weekend to do lots of planting and is keen to grow some peppers, onions aand potatoes!
Well done to those of you who contributed to the ‘lockdown poem’, you have really showcased your creativity and flare. You all look so smiley and happy and have been doing some wonderful things. We have watched it several times so that we can hear your lovely voices.
As you will be aware, the lockdown is gradually starting to ease and we hope you are able to visit your family and friends really soon. Grandparents will be delighted to spend time with their loved ones. Mrs Uppal is relieved to hear she can now go and visit her parents in Birmingham. And Mrs Conidi is hopeful that her family will be able to celebrate Mr Conidi’s birthday together.
We are so proud to see how you have all kept safe and patient during this difficult time. You have all kept in touch with us to let us know you are healthy and safe, this has been very reassuring for us and has given us the opportunity to communicate with you.
We are looking forward to seeing some of you at school soon– we hope we don’t have to wait too long. We will be in touch as soon as we have a start date. For those, who have chosen to keep your child/ren at home, continue the fantastic job you are doing and please do access the resources on the home learning page of the website as well as reading, writing and maths activities e.g learn how to tell the time, count money, and practice counting in 2s,5s and 10s.
Keep busy, keep smiling and stay safe.Love from The Year 1 Team
