A thought for the week ahead. I hope everyone is keeping well. Just do your best. We understand that everyone’s home situation is unique.
* Well done on all who have completed Fiona’s challenge! You can still join in!
* Carmel’s challenge posted on Friday is a wonderful nature activity for the whole family also.
* Don’t forget to send teachers samples of your work and pictures of you engaging so that we can include you in our assembly slideshow each Friday at 11.
These are extra optional activities that we hope will support your family with lockdown fun and experiences together in a variety of ways.
Have a lovely week
Well done to all our pupils on a fantastic first week back at school. Working remotely hasn’t dampened your enthusiasm! It was great to see so many of you on our Zoom assembly today!
Thank you to our teachers and staff for all the innovative and creative ideas that they have been coming up with!
This week we set a STEAM stick challenge. Students were challenged to make a stick man at junior level and an insulated hut at senior level. We had some super entries- here is a selection!

As we close for the holidays, I wish that everyone has a safe and merry Christmas.
I am sure that Santa will spoil our girls and boys who have been so resilient and inspiring in the face of adversity.
I hope all parents enjoy a restful and easy Christmas.
I wish our staff a well deserved break and thank them all for their enthusiasm this trying term.
