As we enter our final week of school, in a much different way than usual, I’m sure you are all tired of doing the ‘normal’ schoolwork and homework.  For the last few days, I have included a list of fun activities that you can pick and choose from.  Try to do a few of your own choice each day and you might like to try some of them during the summer months as well. Have Fun!  I have also sent an email regarding our whole school Summer Reading Initiative, which I’m sure you will all enjoy taking part in.  Don’t forget to wish all the Dads a ‘Happy Father’s Day’ on Sunday!

Update

Parents and Students

We hope you are all keeping well and staying safe. Firstly, we want to remind you that teachers will only set work for Thursday and Friday next week due to the bank holiday.

We are incredibly proud of all our students (and their families) for the massive effort that they have  put in over the last number of weeks, to ensure learning continues. We know that as the weeks go on, and the weather gets better, it is getting harder to remain focused.  However, you have all been brilliant and are working so hard that we feel you deserve a special treat.

On Wednesday 3rd, Wednesday 10th and Wednesday 17th June at 10am, we have organised a PE coach to do fun Zoom PE sessions for you (and all your family).  You’d never know, maybe some of the staff might join in to !!!!!  It’s a great way to stay fit, see your friends and enjoy Wellness Wednesday. We would love to have our whole school community taking part in these sessions together.

Make sure we have an up to date email address for you all, if you are not sure, please send your email address to mswhelan2020@gmail.com. On Wednesday morning, we will send a link to your email address at approx. 9.50am and once you click on the link to join, you will be connected to the session.

 

Enjoy your June bank holiday weekend, and we hope to see you all on Wednesday

 

From all the staff
