Summer Term Week 12

10.7.20

 Hello Year 1 friends,

What an academic year this has been! In the last week of Summer Term there are always mixed emotions. We usually use this time to look back at how much we have achieved and begin to look forward to moving up the school.  It has certainly been a strange time and I know that some of you may have worries about what September will be like when you return. You are not alone. There are rules and routines that have been introduced since March, not just in school, but also in our daily lives. Going to the shops, eating out and seeing our friends and families has changed and we are all learning to adapt to a ‘new normal’. One thing I can guarantee for sure is that when you return in September, school will remain welcoming, fun, inspiring and a safe space for you to flourish. I really have missed your energy and I’m delighted that we have the opportunity to come together to have some socially-distanced fun together, weather permitting. The learning pack this week contains some worksheets which help you reflect over the past year – these will serve as a wonderful memento for a time capsule in future years.

Parents, thank you so much for your amazing support. You have executed our learning packs brilliantly and you’ve often given me inspiration with your additional extra-curricular activities! Many of you have taken on the extra job of home schooling above your new work situation and we are grateful for the time you have spent and the energy you have put in. Please accept my heartfelt thanks for this.

You have all been amazing, Year 1, and if you can’t make next week then I  look forward to the Autumn Term when I can pop my head around the door of your new classroom to say hello to you all again. Have a wonderful Summer, take care and keep shining brightly.

Mrs Weatherspoon
