Spring 1 News Week 3 January 21st 2022

Good morning,

As outlined in yesterday’s communication, the contractors have been working on site to ensure that the temporary boiler system could sustain itself, however, this work was not been successful and further repair work is being undertaken today. Unfortunately, this means that school will remain closed today. I will write to you later today with a further update and thank you all for your continued support and patience as we work to resolve this situation.

Despite the fact that we have been closed to the majority of pupils this week, we still have much to celebrate. Teachers have been so impressed and valued the commitment our children and families have shown to the remote learning that has been happening this week. We have seen increasing numbers of children logging on to live TEAMs lessons, submitting follow up tasks and also have had children working hard on paper based learning packs.

Story Sessions

In school, we aim to foster a life long love of reading and have a daily ‘Reading for Pleasure’ session. To continue to provide such experiences whilst the children are not in school, I have created Nearpod presentations to tell the story of a classic C. S. Lewis novel called, ‘The Magician’s Nephew’ for our older pupils (KS2).

It was great to see that more children had logged in yesterday and listened to the first two chapters of the story. Here is Chapter 1 and 2 for anyone who missed it:

Chapter 1- The Wrong Door

Chapter 2- Digory and his Uncle

 Chapter 3- The Wood between the Worlds

And today we have added Chapter 4 to each Key Stage Two class channel:

Chapter 4- The Bell and the Hammer

For Key Stage 1 we are sharing links to some fantastic story tellers on the BBC Bedtime Stories:

BBC iPlayer – CBeebies Bedtime Stories – 806. JJ Chalmers – There Is No Dragon in This Story
