It’s this weekend where you go hunting with the FROGS’ Family Easter Challenge, but also a camp out on Saturday. Details below!
We’ve had some lovely weeks back at school so far, and the sun has certainly helped. Covid restrictions limit what we’re doing here but we would just love to have the school back to the ‘old normal’, with busy playtimes, children able to see our smiles, and Family Groups where children properly mix bubbles and see each other. It’s something that we’re often looking into and working towards, and we look forward to a more normal Summer term.
One strange thing about the school at the moment is that it already feels like it’s July. It’s been an incredibly busy year for everyone, and it’s almost like we’re limping up towards the summer. But it also feels like September, where we’ve got to establish the routines, rules and procedures that many of us have fallen out of practice with. But of course, it’s being felt differently by different people too, whether you’ve been at school through the lockdown, or whether you’ve been at home and followed the remote learning offer; coming back has been an interesting one and we’ve had to spend a lot of time helping children with our School Values, our routines and expectations. This is what the Government has started to phrase the ‘Recovery Curriculum,’ rather than catch-up, and is more about relationship building and well-being, than the gaps in learning. Again, a great term to have our school value as ‘We Are A Community.’
Well done to Miss Zoe Rustell who has finally concluded her term of being a trainee teacher in Class 4. She’s done really well and I know Class 4 will miss her.
The sun has been helpful this week and the children have really enjoyed their playtimes outside, but please put your names on jumpers and coats, as the lost property tub will start to fill up otherwise.
We do still have some technical issues with the website and newsletters, so if you’re not receiving any at the moment (and only get this via Facebook), have a check of your spam folder as some emails that are named ‘admin’ or ‘newsletter’ get spammed immediately. It’s something we’re trying to rectify, so please bear with us.
Our Friends of Georgeham School… FROGS… have been getting together and planning things for the school community too. Here’s something they’ve come up with…
‘Win one of these 3 Chocolate Easter Hampers
and help FROGS raise money for the school!
FROGS are organising a Family Easter Challenge to be completed sometime over THIS weekend. As a family group (please make sure there is an adult present!) you will need to solve the clues to find different locations around Georgeham. In each location there will be a secret word to find. Further instructions will have been given out today, so do check your child’s school bag.
To be in with a chance of winning you need to hand in an envelope with your answer and a voluntary donation (for FROGS) to school on Monday. Names will be drawn on the last day of term!
Please feel free to give generously, if you can, as we haven’t been able to do much fundraising this year due to Covid. Any donation will be much appreciated. Thank you!’
Not forgetting that Saturday night is also Max’s 365th day of camping in his back garden! The Braunton Learning Community are all hopefully sharing in his year’s journey and camping out in some way, whether outside in a tent, or under dining tables, dens behind sofas, etc.! Have a read about his story and click through to raise money for The Hospice…
