The school & nursery are currently open between 8:40am and 3:10pm for children of key workers only (this includes the Easter holidays). The office is staffed between 8:30am and 12pm each day during Easter. If you want to enquire about a place, please phone or email firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will get back to you.
This week’s Picture News is about endangered animals.
First, have a look at the Picture News at Home pdf, then take a look at the Assembly Resource.
Once you have done that, open either the KS1 or KS2 work with some further activities for you to complete.
We would love to see the work you have done posted to the blog.
I just wanted to send you a quick reminder about ways to stay safe online. With life being a bit different at the moment I am sure that you are missing your friends and using ICT a lot more to help with your learning. Please remember to follow these rules to help you to stay safe:
Don’t forget that if you see or hear anything that upsets you when you are online (or on your mobile phone) then you can always email Buddy Bear or your class teacher. Alternatively you could tell a trusted adult at home or phone NSPCC childine on 0800 1111.
Stay safe and please try to take regular screen breaks!

Please see the following Parent flyer for hints and tips that can be used for home education along with advice and support for mental health and well being.
Our value of the month for April is Freedom
What is Freedom?
- Rights and responsibilities
- Freedom of speech
Suggestions for parents to work with children at home:
- Together, talk about people in history who were being ruled by someone else and wanted freedom, e.g. Moses and the Israelites, slaves in the US before the Civil War; Hanukkah; Nelson Mandela.
- Discuss with your child about historical slavery and modern day human trafficking.
- Discuss with your child about the Syria Refugee Crisis.
- Different Rules of Law around the world. Discuss with your child democracy in Britain and how this may be different from countries around the world.
- Freedom of self- expression. Discuss with your child the importance of their identity and being able to express themselves. Explain that people living in Britain are able to express themselves how they choose; as long as it doesn’t break the law (Individual Liberty).
- Discuss inner freedom– having positive thoughts. What does inner freedom feel like? When do you feel most free? What kinds of thoughts make you feel free? Constrained?
We wanted to make you aware of a scam which effects families who are eligible for free school meals. The following extract has been taken from an official Government website that was updated today –
Be aware of scam emails
We have been informed that some parents have received an email stating the following: ‘As schools will be closing, if you’re entitled to free school meals, please send your bank details and we’ll make sure you’re supported’.
We can confirm that this is a scam email and is not official. We urge parents that if you receive any emails like this, please do not respond, and delete it immediately.
We normally use Picture News in a weekly assembly. This week, I have posted it on the website for you instead!
First, look at the Picture News at Home page – you will see the news picture with some things to think about.
Then read the Picture News Resources – these are ideas to get you thinking and include some useful links too.
Open either KS1 or KS2 work with some further activities for you to complete. Why not post what you have done to the blog, or use Purple Mash if you can to publish your work?
Please see the following message from Vicky Ford MP for the parents of children with SEND, particularly those that have an Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP).
As ever, the document is asking Parents to consider whether their child’s needs can be met at home safely. This is to keep as many children as possible at home during this time to help reduce the transmission rates of Covid 19.
