Learning without Limits

Week 10 Virtual Learning (22.06.20)

Good morning my lovelies! Did you all have a nice weekend? What did you get up to? I went for a bbq in my dads garden which was lovely.

I just wanted to send you a message about next week. As you know the children that are returning to school next week have had to be split into groups of up to 8. Which means, as much as I would have absolutely loved to have had you all with me. Unfortunately, I could not. However, we are very lucky to have Mrs Morrison working with our Year 1 groups. To the children that are a butterfly with Mrs Morrison, you know how lovely she is so have nothing to be worried about. It will also be nice for you to get to know her before year 2. Her bubble is also going to be near our craft workshop so I will still be able to see you and talk to you on the days that you are in. I will also be there to greet you in the mornings. I can’t wait to see you!! 😁 Things will be a little bit different but we will help you get used to the new routine. I will also put some pictures of our classroom onto google classroom for you this week. 

To the children who are in the key worker groups, I will wave to you when you are in and come and speak to you from a distance 😁


To the children staying at home, I will keep in contact with you via google classroom and questionnaires, I will be thinking of you and I will see you soon. 😁

I will still be putting daily check ins on google classroom this week. 

I hope you have a lovely week, don’t worry about anything, if you have any questions just ask. 

miss you all
