A recurring theme in our recent whole school assemblies has been trees. From stories of Buddha to Newton’s discovery of gravity, the tales of trees and humans have been interwoven throughout the last half term.
As part of this, the children of Edmund Waller were offered the chance to design a tree that represented their school.
Thanks for all of the entries – click the link below to see what has been created so far.
Welcome back and we hope you all managed to get some rest over the half-term holidays. We are very hopeful that this half term will see a bit of a return to normality. Fingers crossed.
The media is full of speculation about the full return to school in March. Currently, we have no more information than is available to the general public. There will be more information this evening and we will be writing to parents as soon as we have any official news.
One of the most welcome and significant shifts in recent times has been the one surrounding our attitudes towards mental health. Also, with the current restrictions, there has never been a more important time to have open and supportive conversations regarding our children’s mental well being.
Below is a special assembly to celebrate the start of this important week:
This week is Mental Health week, there are a whole host of resources available via the webiste:
This morning, you will find suggested timings for your child’ school day, for years 2 and upwards available in the Year Group Team.
We appreciate that the amount of work coming from school can feel overwhelming BUT we have been directed by the Department for Education to provide 3 -5 hours of work a day!
We want to make it very clear that, other than Teams/Zooms etc., the timings here are purely a suggestion as to how you might structure your day – there is no compulsion to adhere to them, we fully understand that there will be days when this simply doesn’t happen ; )
