Thank you for your continued engagement with your children’s learning at home and support of staff’s online teaching efforts whilst this period of virtual school experience extends longer than originally anticipated. I continue to be impressed with the quality of the online teaching and learning being provided by our teachers. This week I enjoyed joining lessons which included:
- learning about Andy Goldsworthy’s art in nature
- high level vocabulary discussions in guided reading
- a spirited debate regarding Helen of Troy
- challenging tasks identifying / calculating angles in shapes
- sharing knowledge about Greek Gods and Goddesses
- sharing biography box-ups ready for writing
As well as ensuring comprehensive coverage of our agreed curriculum whilst online learning continues, staff are also committed to protecting and enhancing students’ well-being. With this in mind, staff will ensure that students have sufficient breaks during the day, opportunities to work away from the screen / offline and encourage indoor / outdoor physical activity. Please do contact your child’s class teacher or any member of the PLT if you have any concerns about their well-being.

BSB Ambitious Week update
Recently we have had to make the decision to cancel our planned BSB Ambitious Week activities this academic year. This is disappointing for staff, students and parents – we all would have liked BSB Ambitious Week to go ahead, knowing how enjoyable and highly anticipated this annual event is. None-the-less, once our students are able to return to school, depending on the time we then have available, staff are committed to providing in-school BSB Ambitious Week-esque challenges, tasks and activities. Further information will be shared with parents and students closer to the time.
