A week of great weather certainly lifted all our spirits last week as we returned to school. Our newly revamped Forest Area and Gazebo at the back of the school shone and glinted in the Spring sunshine. Little messages have been painted on secret rocks, new little fairy houses have appeared, the gazebo got a great makeover, wise wooden owls look down from the trees and a tiny family of stony ladybirds have appeared! Thanks to Olive, Katie, Dan, Shirley and all involved.
April is Autism Awareness Month and each of our classes will speak, in an age appropriate manner, about how we can celebrate neurodiversity – in other words how we all can think and look at things differently.
This short video Amazing Things Happen tells the story very well and is worth a look with your child:
Each class teacher will be in touch with you this week by email or Seesaw to outline some of the important dates for the term ahead including Parent Teacher meetings, which will be taking place by phone. (Infant and First Classes from early May, with 2n -6th classes in late May/ early June).
We still don’t have any dates for rescheduled Confirmation or First Holy Communion, but I expect this will become clearer in the coming weeks as restrictions ease. Be assured as soon as we know we will be in touch.
Finally, as always, remember to stay safe and follow the health guidelines that will get us out the other side of this health crisis.
Regards and best wishes,
