Hello everyone I hope that you are keeping well. School is much quieter than usual and we cannot wait to have you all back.
Class 1 - earlier this week Miss Smith was showing me all your great work on Tapestry - I am very impressed with your creativity and skills.
Class 4 - I am still checking SPAG.com - well done for continuing to use it. I have added a few more for those who have managed to finish all ones that were set.
I hope all of you are managing to get outside and enjoy this lovely weather. I am having my daily exercise after work with my youngest daughter. We have found many new footpaths in our village that we had not noticed before. We also have a daily competition, who can take the best photo of something on our walk. I am not winning....
I know that many of you will be finding not being with your friends very difficult. Please try and stay positive, and know that this will pass, and that you will be with your friends again soon.
I hope that you all have a good weekend.
Stay safe and be kind.

Hello everyone – after a weekend lovely weather, the rain seems to have settled in for a while. At the end of last week the children who were in school made birthday cards and a banner for a lady called Wyn who lives in the village as she celebrated her 100th birthday at the weekend. It reminded me of Captain Tom Moore. Can you imagine being 100 years old?
This week I set a challenge to draw a self-portrait in the style of Paul Klee. I have already received a few (which look fantastic) and I have put them up in the windows of the school hall for you to see when you are out for your daily walk.
Class 2- we have now managed to obtain Times Table Rockstars for your class. I hope that you enjoy it as much as Class 3 and 4.
Thank you to everyone to who is emailing the class teachers with news as to what you have been up to, it is great to hear from you.
Take care and stay safe,

Thank you to everyone who sent in self-portrait pictures in the style of Paul Klee for our School hall windows – they are looking great. Do keep sending them in. Thank you to those who have also sent in photographs, pictures and work about the upcoming VE day tomorrow, you have been very busy.
Earlier this week Mrs Shaw and Mrs Hutchison made VE day bunting which is now hanging outside the front of our school. I will be at school tomorrow with some of the staff and we will hold a 2 minute silence at 11am to mark the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War and at 3pm the BBC will be broadcasting Winston Churchill’s speech. The Queen will also be making a very special speech as well.
Later tonight my family and I will be clapping at 8pm to say a big thank you to everyone who is helping someone else during this time.
I wish you all well and remember to stay safe,

Thank you for emailing the school your work and photographs of VE day. We really do enjoy seeing them. It looks like you all managed to have a lovely and memorable day. Rearsby looked so colourful with the bunting and I even managed to try one of Beardsley’s fruit scones.
Tonight my family will be clapping at 8pm. Does this happen where you live? Do you think it is a good idea? Do you think that it has brought neighbours together? I would love to know your thoughts on this.
Well done for all the work you are doing at the moment, I know some of you are still completing the Joe Wicks workout each day, which is very impressive.
Take care and continue to be kind,

Hello I hope you are all keeping safe and well. Have you seen the new competition set by Blue Peter? You have to design a supercar of the future. The prize is a VIP tour of Mc Laren’s HQ and your supercar design will be made into a model. You can find all the details here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/joinin/bp-competition
Unfortunately, children in Class 1 cannot enter this time as you have to be 6 years old and over to enter. However please still free to design a supercar and send your pictures to school, we would love to see them.
I hope that you all have a good half term break.

Class 1, Year 1 and Year 6 have now joined us again. School is quite different to how it used to be, with lots of rules to keep us safe. We now have four break times and four lunchtimes! We are not sure how long we have to wait until all classes can come back but I want you all to know that we are thinking about everyone wherever you are.
