We wanted to say a huge WELL DONE and THANK YOU to all our parents and carers for being amazing this half term. Nobody expected a full lockdown-we were all ready to open and the announcement to close came as a shock to us too. Your children have been fantastic too, given the circumstances that they had no preparation for. Our children, like us, are missing their friends and family. With the roll out of the vaccine now gathering pace, I know that many of us are seeing a chink of light at the end of the tunnel. The day where we see loved ones again, and begin to gain semblance of normality is hopefully not too far away.
Mrs Palmer is sending out log in details to our new reading platforms today. We know online books are not as good as real books, and we cannot wait to be able to share real books with you again. Please enjoy your half terms as much as lockdown allows. and fingers crossed we'll see some sunshine.
Have a well earned rest, you have made it to half term! Many of you have juggled work, elderly parents, different age children and much more. Well done everybody! I am sure you will all find the appropriate beverage to pour tonight and toast yourself-We will be raising our glasses to you and all fellow school staff too.
Mrs Riches and all the staff at Bishops Waltham
