Well, it looks like we will have the opportunity to meet up again soon. Can I please request that your parents fill in the online survey as soon as possible, so we can make the return to school as safe as possible.
I have read some excellent poetry this week and have had the opportunity to talk to a lot of your parents about how well you are doing. I am really proud of all of you for your hard work and common sense approach to the current situation. I know there has been the odd tantrum, a few strops and even some door slamming and that is just your parents.

Below you will find information on the Primary Wellbeing Challenge. This is an interactive challenge that we usually send out to schools but we have adapted it for parents to do at home with their children. The idea is to encourage young people to think positively about their mental health; it’s based around the ‘Five Ways to Mental wellbeing’.
In the Jewish community a boy is thought to be an adult when he reaches 13. Bar mitzvah, which means ‘son of the commandment’, is a person who has reached this age. Usually there are special ceremonies on a boy’s bar mitzvah day. This week’s RE explores Bar mitzvah and its importance to the Jewish community.
As a school, every class will be looking at the same resource called ‘The Big Idea Weekly Challenge’. Details of the challenges can be found below.

This week I want you to research Pointillism and to create your own pieces of work. I have attached a link for you to look at to help you get some ideas.
Continuing with the programming theme, I have set up 5 more To Dos on Purple Mash building on the previous weeks work.
