And just like that…

 

In what feels like the blink of an eye, we have made it through to half term, and what a busy half term it has been across the school! The children have made some fantastic progress and this can be seen in their final outcomes.

I mentioned in the newsletter that this week was  Children’s Mental Health Week. As a school, we recognise how important these things are for our entire community and work hard to educate everyone in developing their understanding and ability to support themselves and each other. Well done and thank you to all children and staff who participated so enthusiastically in the activities that were planned as part of Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week. The theme for this year has been ‘Growing Together’, with ‘growing emotionally and finding ways to help each other grow’ being at the heart of all that has been explored with the children.

There is no time like ‘Quality time’. Put some time aside into spending quality, one to one time with your child. I know we spend lots of time with our child, having meals, washing them, getting them ready for bed. Put some time aside for that meaningful time when you can put away distractions and really listen and spend time with them. It’s those moments that build connection and improve your child’s self esteem.

Lots of wonderful learning in class has also been going on this week, so look out for the posts on the class pages of our website. Thanking all of our community for their wonderful support this half term, you are so appreciated.

Wishing you all a wonderful half-term
