Where learning is fuelled by creativity

Weekly newsletter – 8.5.20

8th May 2020 in Whole School

We’ll meet again
Don’t know where
Don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day
Keep smiling through
Just like you always do
‘Till the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away

 

We have been so excited to see so much learning going on at the moment, mostly linked to WW2 and the celebrations which are continuing to go on this weekend. There may not be the street parties as planned, but our TMS children have made bunting, learnt about the meaning of the celebration as well as what our TMS families do best it seems … make cakes! As always, the wellbeing and happiness of your children remains the most important thing at the moment – learning happens in so many different ways and we are so happy to see photos of our children tying shoelaces for the first time, riding their bikes, gardening, cooking, changing oil in the car, practicing keepy-uppies, sewing, loading the dishwasher, putting out the washing and even pouring parents a glass of wine in the meal they had produced! Happiness is the most important thing : children will only learn if they are happy. It will all fit together and we will catch up when the time is right and we are back on track.

When and how will schools reopen? This is the million dollar question to which we do not know the answer! Any information out there remains unhelpful speculation! Hopefully, we will be clearer after the Government briefing on Sunday.

TMS has remained open for the children of critical workers. If you are needing to use our provision, then please email secretary@threemilestone.cornwall.sch.uk to book in. The guidance remains the same – if your children are safe at home, that is where they need to be; however, we understand more families are having to return to work. Please note – this is ‘childcare’. The only learning they are accessing is what the class teachers have put on the website.

Annual reports : All reports have been posted to the addresses we have, as well as the updated data sheet for you to return to school. If a duplicate report is required for another family member with parental responsibility, then please contact the school office.

All our school staff continue to miss the children, and  the energy that TMS creates. Please continue to keep in touch with us 🙂

As always, please continue to take the recommended precautions and do everything you can to keep you and your families safe.

Ms Teagle
