Love is in the Air!

RemoteLearning 2.0

Our second stint of Homeschooling is well and truly up and running at this stage and while we know our pupils all dearly miss their friends, their teachers and their school, they have not let this dampen their spirits or stop them from learning and showing off their wonderful talents.

We are delighted with how well our pupils (and parents!) have engaged with Seesaw since we closed. Here are some of the highlights which are proof that you, our pupils, are just amazing people! Well done and keep up the great work!

Home Schooling 2021

As we begin our second run at Distance Learning I want to wish all our families the very best for the coming weeks. The teachers and staff worked hard all week and throughout the weekend in preparation for Distance Learning and we thank them for their dedication and commitment to ensuring our children have a positive and beneficial experience over the next three weeks.

Distance Learning will require your support at home and we hope that it is not too stressful for anyone. Please only do what is possible for your family to do. We understand every family situation is different and we only want to help keep your child’s schooling alive during this closure. Contact us if you require any extra support or advice and we will gladly assist in any way we can.

We also ask that you check Seesaw and Aladdin each day for assigned work and announcements. In Aladdin, work will be assigned by some teachers in the Homework section.

Check out our website and social media platforms each Friday for some of the weeks highlights.

Good Luck! Stay Safe.

Christmas in the Pres

Christmas is simply a magical time to be in a primary school. This week the children enjoy some wonderful experiences and hopefully are feeling the Christmas spirit of joy and fun.

Classes enjoyed making Gingerbread and fudge in our kitchen. Children also recorded their very special Christmas Shows to share with thier parents via our YouTube channel. But the highlight of the week had to be the visit form the one and old Santa Claus! This brought absolute joy and amazement to the classrooms and we thank Santa for taking time from his very busy schedule to visit us here in the Pres!

Here are some collages of the main events but at the end of this post is the whole collection of photos from the week that was Christmas!
