Anyone remember Dixon of Dock Green? That was the opening line each week.... you are all too young to remember. I used to watch it with my Dad. Both my parents were teachers. My Dad went into teaching late, but became a Head Teacher in Bury until he retired. My mum was a teacher in Bury all her working life and taught Reception for 25 years. The conversation round our tea table was interesting as you can imagine. I went to see my mum today (she is 88 and still has her 'I survived the war' head on. Good on her. She is very up beat!)
I am so proud of our children and families. Year 6 returned this week and we survived each other. It is lovely to see how they have grown (literally) and as people in their own right.
On Monday we will welcome back Year 1 and then Reception.
Key worker children numbers continue to grow as parents go back to work.
THE INTENTION is to bring back Y5 in the week beginning 6th July, but this is dependent on KW children. I am working with Mr. Longworth to put a transition package together for Years 2,3 and 4. We are thinking that this is likely to be via ZOOM. (Now that I am happy about it's safety.)
I will be working with staff to support your children as they move in to a new year group. Information to follow asap.
I hope that you have a lovely weekend and that your families are safe and well.
Lots of love and hugs (Virtual obviously!)
