Welcome to Lilac
Miss Gaff - Teacher
Welcome to Lilac.
I'm Miss Gaff the Lilac Class teacher.
Together with Mrs Shaw and Ms Smart, we are going to have lots of fun learning new things!
I'm looking forward to a fantastic year with you all.
Please see the home learning section below for home school learning. For reception please see Willow's class page and Tapestry.
Well I really enjoyed zoom calling you all this morning, to those who couldn't make it don't worry there is always next time. Myself and Mrs Shaw just love seeing your faces (and how tall you all are) and hearing all the wonderful things you are doing at home.
Next week is half term so have a week of rest! I have uploaded a couple of extra things if you wish but please just stay on top of reading at the very least, just for next week.
This week is mental health awareness week. For this let us try to remain positive in these difficult circumstances Think of 5 things you have enjoyed doing during lockdown and why? Feel free to share them with me.
1. Going for a run every morning as it has made me start the day off with energy.
2. Zoom calling and phoning you all as I have been able to hear all the wonderful things you have been up to.
3. Going for long walks as it has been nice to hear all the quiet surroundings and see more wildlife.
4. Home schooling my nieces. My sister works in a bank so continues to work during this time. I have therefore looked after my nieces during this time so I get to spend some quality time with them.
5. Eating lots of chocolate because it is super tasty and makes me very happy.
Here is a link too for a online book about worry. This is a difficult time for us as adults never mind the children so this may help to explain how they are feeling...https://en.calameo.com/read/000777721945cfe5bb9cc?authid=Xu9pcOzU3TQx
I am still accessible on the lilac class email so please do email if you need anything or wish to update me with pictures or to tell me the wonderful thing you are doing at home. Thank you to the Year 1 children who have already sent me updates.
Thank you to the reception children who have been updating myself and Miss Glover through Tapestry too it has been wonderful to see what you have been up to. Remember what you post is really useful for Miss Glover and I to use towards their learning journey so we can assess how the children are progressing. Please continue to keep me updated. I'd love to hear what you have all been doing. The email for Lilac is: email@example.com
Keep safe and keep your distance from everyone. Remember to keep washing those hands! 👐🏻
Enjoy your well earned week off!
Miss Gaff and all Lilac staff! 🌟🦸🏻♀️🦸🏼
