 Dear parents/ carers, staff and children,

We are missing you all and thinking of you. Remember to wash your hands, stay indoors or keep social distancing if you have to go out and keep safe. I saw this poem and thought it would be lovely to share with you.

All good wishes and stay positive.

 Poem by Ursula Dubosarsky

Australian Children's Laureate, 2020 - 2021



 Whilst you’re staying at home this week, spread some joy in your community by sharing a rainbow in your windows for others to see. You can write inspirational messages on them for people walking by or others staying indoors to read and spread some happiness.

Hundreds of schools across the country have been involved with this project.




  Fun Science learning at home.



Can you explain what has happened and I would love to see some images when we get back.



Please, please do not forget to read every day and to record it in your reading diary.  I will have lots of gels pens to give out when we return back to school. I have been listening to Oliver Jeffers each evening with my children, and we have been thoroughly enjoying his stories.





Another one that you may enjoy is David Walliams at 11am. 



You can work your way through the learning pack/sheets sent home, as well as learning your times table challenges.
