,Well, we have come to the end of another half term of lockdown learning. You should be very proud of your children and of yourselves for the way that you, and they, have all approached this challenging time with positivity and resilience. Thank you so much for your support. I hope that the children have found the more flexible and creative approach to afternoon activities stimulating - we will continue in this way after half term. I have enjoyed seeing the fossils made at home and at school as well as some nice entries for the geography challenge that Miss Radbourne set. At school, we did some sewing in design and technology to create some Spring representations and some children got creative at home making flowers out of paper too. Some children created a French menu - I wonder if any of them will be serving their dishes up on Valentines Day? The children came up with some good ideas this afternoon for the pupil voice charter which we will be sending on to our Trust Champion Ed Finch.
During half-term there is no work set so it is an opportunity for you all to rest and recharge your batteries. I hope it won't be too long before all the children can return to school as I am missing them so much! In the meantime, I hope they will continue to engage as they have been, so they are ready to return to school learning as soon as it is allowed.
I believe Mr Foreman is setting a fun half term challenge which you will be able to find on the school website under School News. There may be time left to buy a virtual balloon for the virtual balloon race that FONTS are organising - please help them to raise even more money for your children's school.

Now time for the kids to get away from those screens and have some much needed fun and relaxation!
