Hello everyone, Happy April!
I can't believe it's come around so fast. Spring is on its way and it's so lovely to see lots of blossom flowering on the trees and the daffodils brightening up my daily walk with Ziggy. Although it's horrible that I can't be with my fantastic Siena class, Ziggy is very glad to have me at home, she's definitely going to miss me when I have to come back. Maybe I'll try and sneak her in!
I wonder how you're all getting on at home and if anyone has been keeping up with the home learning that I've been posting throughout the week? I wonder who has managed to pull off a successful April Fools' prank today?
Think of you all,
p.s. Here's a picture of Ziggy trying hard with her home learning to brighten your day...
Firstly, I hope you're all okay and please know that I'm missing you all lots. I know that I have seen some of you more recently and others not for a couple of weeks but it's very important that we all do our bit to keep everybody as safe and well as possible.
For the majority of you, you'll be nearing the end of your first week at home and I hope you've managed to find enough things to keep you busy. School feels very empty without you all at the moment but it's still there don't worry! When the Government says you can all come back to school, I'll be there (along with the other Roman Way staff) to great you with a smile and to hear all about everything that you've been doing.
Some of you are still coming into school because your parents are key workers and are still needed to work so that they can help everyone in the country. This doesn't mean that these children are more or less important or special that those of you at home! It's just one of those things that's a little different whilst we fight this virus. If you want to see what these children are getting up to on the days they are in school, there is a page called "Spring Learning at Roman Way" which has pictures of activities. If you're at home, you might want to ask your grown-ups if you can have a go at some of them too.
Most importantly, remember to stay in your house and garden unless you're on a walk/run with your grown-ups and keep washing your hands regularly with warm water and soap. I'll be uploading the photographs of our germ investigation with the bread that we started in school last week on the 'Science' icon on our page - there has already been some surprising developments!
I'll keep finding new ideas and activities for you to do at home (they won't all be Maths and English) with your home grown-ups. As always, keep being the amazing, kind, helpful and brave children that I know you are when you're in school. This is a tricky time but we'll be back together soon enough so try not to worry. If you are worried, make sure you tell someone you trust so they can do their best to help.
Take care of yourselves and your family. I know there's a lot of news about the bad things that are happening in the world but there are lots of good things happening too! Our environment is thriving because less people are able to travel around, neighbours and businesses are supporting everyone as much as they can, people are volunteering to help those in need and you are able to spend time with your loved ones at home. Stay positive!
I miss you all very much and can't wait to see my Roman Way family again soon.
