Dear Blue Class,

We hope you are all well and enjoyed the hot weather last week. Pictures of some of you in your pools made us very jealous! The year 6 returners are in school, and we have been busy casting for our own film of The Tempest- can we manage to learn the script and film it in two weeks?! Freya spotted a great version of The Tempest on Cbeebies ; it uses some Shakespearean language but is very entertaining especially as most of you know the story so well now. The new Alex Rider series is also out on Prime. It is targeted at over tens and teenagers, but my husband and I have been enjoying the series. Some of ‘the returners’ have been watching it at home.

We understand that home learning is getting really tough especially as lots of your parents are also busy trying to work from home too. Try to complete at least the first side of the maths sheet to keep your skills sharp, and keep up to date with the English. We have put some foundation subjects on line over the past two weeks for you to work on but understand that some of you are pursuing  your own projects.

We are very excited that it is possible to welcome our year 5 ( soon to be year 6)  back in small groups in the last week of term We cant wait to see you all.

Our  year 6 leavers are going to be invited into school  on the afternoon of Thursday 8th July for a socially distanced picnic lunch  and leavers’ service. We hope most of you will be able to make it as we want to be able to say a proper goodbye. Can you all be thinking of your memories of school as we would like to share them just as we do in church. What is your earliest / most treasured/ funniest/ happiest memory? Think of two memories that you could share with everyone.

I hope you have all been reading during Lockdown; it’s a great form of escape. Mrs Langley always has great recommendations for me; have you read books you could recommend to each other? Many  of you still have our Bookfest books which you were reading when Lockdown happened. Please could you return them to school  – either when you come in or leave them in the school entrance during school hours.

Don’t forget to keep  in touch!

Take care everyone .

Mrs Benson and Mrs Bernasconi
