Easter Holidays

Our parents and children have been doing an amazing job of staying positive, staying safe and at home and completing the remote learning that teachers have set.  The teachers are really pleased with the interaction via Dojo, Tapestry or SeeSaw.  Over the Easter holidays, however, we think that it is really important that you all have to rest, down time, family time and fun.  We will, therefore,  not be posting any work for the Easter period. We will continue to post work for those who would like some structure etc after the Easter Holidays.

Please continue to keep safe and enjoy the Easter holidays in whatever form they may take.

Easter Reflection

A poem by John O’Donohue called “This Is The Time To Be Slow”. 

This is the time to be slow,

Lie low to the wall 

Until the bitter weather passes. 

Try, as best you can, not to let

The wire brush of doubt

Scrape from your heart

All sense of yourself

And your hesitant light.

If you remain generous,

Time will come good;

And you will find your feet

Again on fresh pastures of promise,

Where the air will be kind

And blushed with beginning. 

 

Contacting School

School is closed to all but a small group of key worker children. staff are making regular weekly contact with all parents and this will continue.  Please note that due to staff shortages that the telephone is not being manned.

Apologies everybody, it was not made clear that the Chester Zoo virtual tour is through Facebook, not the website as I was led to believe. If you have Facebook, it is on the Chester Zoo Facebook page. I’m so sorry for the mix up and possible disappointment. I think they are having some difficulties at the moment with the live stream, hopefully this will be sorted soon.
