WG Primary School News

Apr 30, 2020 | Primary School News

If one thing is for certain, this is not the update I was expecting to write! I have never known things to change so much in such a short time and working in a school environment we are used to things changing all the time.  The corridors are quiet, the bell hasn’t rung and the buzz of learning has faded.  We miss the joy the children bring us and the fun we all have learning together – in the presence of each other.  

Modern technology has definitely given us the chance to continue to communicate and learn – just quite differently to what we are used to.  We are currently still open to a few children and staff are working hard to support everyone through online home learning.  We have seen some great photos of the children cooking, exploring and learning new skills whilst they have been away from school.  Although lessons have taken a different pathway we are positive the children will gain many new skills which they will cherish forever.  

During term time we continue to share a Friday Celebration Assembly with the children and families and this can be found on our school website for all to see.  Celebrating the winners of Rate my Plate, Friendship Friday, Striving to be better – for super learning and the Maths Award have still been awarded to children from all classes – just virtually.  We are so proud of how hard the children and families are working to keep the love of learning alive.

We are excited about welcoming the new children starting school in September and look forward to meeting them all very soon.  If your child has been offered a place then you should have received a letter from us asking for some forms to be completed.  We will send further details about transition arrangements once we are clear about when we can return to school.

As our School Festival has been postponed this year, we will be celebrating VE Day 75 virtually from our own gardens.  The dancing, celebrations and festival fun can still happen!  Lets have a BBQ, get our dancing shoes on and raise a glass so we can reflect on the sacrifice, courage and determination given by those who saw us through a dark and terrifying period.  Despite the circumstances being different today, we are grateful for the many people making sacrifices, showing courage and determination to see us through these unsettling times.  

Keep safe everyone.  #Stay home, protect the NHS and save lives!

Warm regards
