Friday 12th February 2021

Dear All,

Today is the last day of this half term and I can hardly believe it. I am looking forward to relaxing a bit. spending some quality time with my family and reading a good book. 

I am so proud of all of the children in Year 1 who have tried so hard with their home learning and have loved seeing the work that has been sent in. I really hope that it will not be long before we can all be together again and I can't wait to be able to walk into your classrooms and say 'hello' to you all in person. 

Parents, a personal thank you to you too. I have spoken to a few of you this week and I know how difficult it is for you at home with home schooling and many of you are juggling working your own jobs from home too. When I trained to become a teacher, I never envisaged that we would all be working like this and it has taken its toll on everyone. My hope is that for next week, you are able to relax a bit too, build some fabulous memories with your wonderful children and do whatever it is that makes you happy. 

Have a great half term.

Mrs Parmley
