School Closure- Day Two

For the children

Good morning everyone.  We hope you all had a good first day of being at home instead of school.  Things have changed a little today so it’s more important than ever to be kind and helpful at home.  We have had a few emails from you sharing your acts of kindness.  We will share some of these over the coming days.

We wondered how many of you are exercising with Joe Wicks each morning?  It’s important that we all continue to do some type of daily activity. We know that lots of our Home Learning Grids have ideas of things you can do at home.

There are now hundreds of websites offering ideas and tips to keep you busy and creative.  Please make sure you are checking with an adult before you search anything.

Yesterday we launched a ‘Through the Keyhole’ challenge on our Twitter feed.  An insight into the working space of staff! We had a few guesses for the photo yesterday.

Your home learning tasks for today are posted on your class page.

Take care,

Mrs Venn, Mr Borthwick, Miss Bradley and Mrs Gowans

For Parents/Carers

I hope yesterday was not too challenging.  We had a few enquiries about the home learning packs that were distributed last Friday from parents unable to collect them.  I had hoped that we could deliver some over the next few days but unfortunately for now I am unable to get into the school building and need to observe the ‘stay at home’ message.  If and when this changes, I will let you know.

The Council is progressing plans for opening some schools to the children of category 1-3 keyworkers.  If this applies to you, you will be contacted directly and told the school your children are to attend.  This is only where there is absolutely no one else able to look after your children.  Updates can be found at

Wishing you all the best,

Maria Gowans
