Captain Sir Tom Moore was a huge inspiration to us all during difficult times. Through his courage, perseverance and strength at the age of 99, he united the nation. He set himself the challenge of raising £1000 for NHS charities by walking 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday. He actually raised £33 million and lifted the spirits of people around the world. He reminds us that each one of us can achieve amazing things if we have faith in the incredible gifts and talents that God has given to us. Can you and your child complete a challenge of doing something 100 times like Captain Sir Tom? It could be running 100 laps of your garden, drawing 100 pictures, completing an activity for 100 minutes, spotting 100 different things on your daily walk. We would love to hear about what you have achieved!
This week we have been celebrating Children’s Mental Health Week with our dedicated remote learning page full of activities designed to explore the theme ‘Express Yourself’. We hope that, as a family, you have been able to take a little time to enjoy the daily activities focusing of different ways that we can express ourselves and the creative ways that we can share our feelings, thoughts and ideas.
Next week we will be celebrating the Feast Day of Our Lady of Lourdes throughout our Multi-Academy and we have prepared a special page on the remote learning section of the website with lots of activities for your child to access at home. We will be creating a virtual Mary’s garden with paper flowers and prayers and would love as many of the children to be involved as possible! We would love to see photos/videos of anything your child makes, or prayers they write or say. Please email us by Wednesday 10th February with their contributions to our prayer garden so that we can add them to our MAC wide prayer offering on February 11th.
Please follow the link below for the Ten Ten Resources February newsletter which focuses on the importance of prayer as we approach the season of Lent:
A reminder that the links to all of our live events including class catch ups are available on the remote learning home page of the website.
Thank you for providing us with really valuable feedback regarding our remote learning provision – it was very reassuring for us, as a school, to receive so many positive comments about the format, layout, content and flexibility of our provision. In line with feedback, we will be continuing to explore ways of providing interaction with teachers and friends, looking at providing non-screen activities during the week and providing information for parents on how they can support their child with home learning. We would like to reassure parents that you are all doing a fantastic job and please don’t worry if your child isn’t able to complete all of the work set each day – please do email your child’s class teacher for advice if you feel that they are struggling with the work being set.
For our yr 3 families with a child enrolled on to the First Holy Communion programme, the second virtual workshop focusing on ‘Listening and Caring’ will be available on the website from Monday 8th February. Please complete the activity pack which your child can bring back to school when we re-open.
We are still awaiting guidance from the government regarding the re-opening of schools and will keep you fully informed as soon as we have any information.
We wish Mrs Fellows all the best as she commenced her maternity leave this week!
Enjoy your weekends
