We have been really inspired this week by the feedback you have been sending to your class teachers, showing us the lovely things you have been doing. From a pupil writing to a local care home weekly to keep the spirits of the residents and staff up to videos and pictures of singing, drama and really creative work.
All families should have received packs in the post this week containing ideas for learning at home and some little extras like seeds to grow and a stretchy man to create adventures with! Please remember these are ideas for activities, do not feel everything has to be completed. Have fun with the ideas, get older and younger children working together some days if you can. You can always contact your child's teacher via dojo if you need additional support. Mrs Harris, Mrs Butele, Mrs Waterhouse and Mrs Saunders are in school throughout the week too on different days, if you would like to chat to any of us just drop us an email or give us a call.
Online safety is a topic that we all need to be really aware of just now. We have had some concerned members of the Short Wood community getting in touch to say inappropriate things are being shared during video calls and online chats. Please ensure you know who your children are talking to and monitor their activity. We have added some really useful resources from childnet onto our website today - some of this information is translated into a number of languages to support our bilingual families.
We are getting many enquiries about when and how school will reopen, at the moment we do not have any more information than is in the daily news update. As soon as we have further information we will get in touch.
Letters will go out shortly to the families of the children who will be joining our Reception next year. We are delighted you have chosen Short Wood and we will do our best to make the transition into school as smooth and enjoyable as we can for children and parents as we know it is a big change for everyone.
For now, keep getting in touch with your lovely work and just to let us know you are ok. Please continue to follow the public health guidance of staying at home in order to look after yourselves and the wider community. We hope we will be seeing you all very soon.
