Friday 12th February 2021
Well we have eventually reached the end of this half term! I know you will certainly be ready for the week’s break. I also hope the children and yourselves of course have had some fun in the snow this week!
As of yet we have still not received further information regarding a date which school will reopen for all pupils. We really do hope the Government will continue working towards the reopening date of March 8th as was previously mentioned. Hopefully we receive this information straight after half term. Obviously we will keep you fully informed with any updates.
I hope the children have enjoyed studying their particular country as part of our Around the World with Jarrow Cross theme this week. The virtual meeting with Zeus with the Year 4/5 children was especially a great hit. Also, I hope the Feel Good Friday’s continue to ease the pressures of home learning. Please keep on sending your photographs of your Friday activities, we love seeing all the different things which the children are getting up too.
For your information the Free School Meal Vouchers for February half term have all been posted out to those of you whose children are at home at the moment. Parents of children at school don’t forget to pick your vouchers up from the office before school closes on Friday. Vouchers for next half term cannot be applied for until we return. We will inform you as soon as they are available.
Finally, can I just reiterate again how important your ongoing support has been to us all throughout this last term. There is no doubt that the situation has at times placed immense pressure upon us all. It has been a privilege to see how as a community we have all rallied together to support each other. Thank you to you all.
Have a lovely half term, and I will be in touch after the holiday.
