Dear Parents and Carers
Welcome back to the second half of spring term. I hope you all managed to have some rest during half term, even though the rain didn't seem to stop. We have a few things happening this week, starting with our Parent Workshops this week. It is an unusual position to be in this year, as over the past few weeks you have all been able to observe teachers teaching live in your home(albeit remotely), so many of the questions you normally have for the workshops were probably demonstrated. There may be an aspect of the curriculum that you really want to know about, however, and the workshops will be a good opportunity to ask questions.
The workshops are on:
Year 2 Workshop:Tuesday 23rd February 10am
Year R Phonics and Maths Workshop: Wednesday 24th February 10am
Year 1 Workshop: Wednesday 24th February 1.30pm
Our roof is getting repaired this week , so hopefully will be safe again. The police are dealing with the crime itself, and Hampshire County Council are helping us with more anti-vandal measures. There is a very elaborate scaffold structure in place, due to the shape and materials the roof is made of. There is a picture below if anybody is interested in having a peek.
We are all eagerly awaiting the Government's announcement tonight, and whatever has been decided regarding returning to school. After the announcement, we will look at our risk assessments and arrangements and let you know as soon as we can on what returning to school will look like at BWIS (pick up/drop off etc). We will make the school as safe as we can for all children, staff and parents.
There are signs of spring all around Bishops Waltham, including our school grounds. The sight of lovely, yellow daffodils, brightly swaying, always manages to make me smile as I drive to school in the mornings. The only thing that can lift my spirits further, is to be able to open our doors to everyone again. Fingers crossed there is a way forward in this soon.
