On Thursday 23rd Reception children will be taking part in Elmer day, so they are invited to wear multicoloured clothes to school to celebrate 35 years of Elmer. We welcome the rest of the children to wear comfy clothes for Book Trust and can bring their favourite book to school, to share with their peers. £1.00 donations will be going to our charity of choice.

Dear Parents/Carers,


We hope that you are well and have managed to keep your child/children happy and settled this week despite the very wet weather.

It is hard to believe that three months have passed since we have seen most of you and the children. We are thinking of you all and are hoping that you are keeping happy and healthy.


Home learning

We are very impressed with all of the children's efforts with their home learning and want to thank you for your support with this. We recognise that that some families are requesting more activities and that some families are finding a range of different activities at home for their children to complete. We hope that you have found and will continue to find the plans and ideas helpful, but also recognise that one size does not fit all children as everyone's circumstances are different. We also appreciate that it is very difficult to keep the momentum going - many of the staff appreciate this as parents themselves. The home learning plans for next week are available on the website. Please access them in the way that suits your family's circumstance at the moment - you know your child and it is important that we all consider and look after our emotional well being during these challenging times. 


School update

Staff continue to be incredibly flexible and work hard to meet the needs of changing groups of children in school, whilst continuing to support the children who remain at home. The reception children are settling well into very different routines and getting used to a different environment and new staff. We have been very impressed with how they have adapted to these changes. This is also true of the children from the other priority groups as they have adjusted to a new environment and also short periods of time in a small space on the playground during morning play and lunchtime. We are now planning to welcome back small groups of year 1 children from 29th June and from 6th July small groups of year 6 children to support them with their transition to secondary school. Unfortunately due to the large numbers of children already in school, we are currently unable to offer the year 1 and year 6 children full time places. 


End of year reports

The children's end of year reports are almost complete and we are beginning to consider how they will be sent home and how we will be sharing information for September with you and the children. We will be in touch again to provide an update over the next few weeks.


Thank you once again for your continued support.


Best wishes,


Mrs Forde
