We have had a wonderful last two days in school. We began on Monday with the Easter bonnet parade, which was a marvellous, colourful occasion, with all the children out on the playground sharing the wonderful designs and creative ideas that had gone into the making of their bonnets. I wouldn’t like to guess the average number of man hours that had gone into them, but I suspect they took a considerable chunk out of quite a few parents' weekends. We certainly enjoyed seeing the end results and the children loved the chance to get together and it gave us a proper end of term, warm and fuzzy feeling.
Today we have had our traditional celebration assembly to mark the end of term and all had the chance to watch the delightful Easter service. I hope you all enjoy watching it at home as well and the electronic format will mean you can share it with friends and family as well.
With the very mini-heatwave that we have enjoyed today, all in all these extra two days have been a great way to end the term. I would like to say an enormous ‘well done’ to all of the children for showing such great resilience and strength of purpose over the term. Thanks as well to all of the parents for supporting your children at home and in school throughout this time. The idea of the home-school partnership has never been more important. Thanks finally to all of the teachers and support staff who have worked tirelessly to provide the absolute best education and care for your children that they can.
Although it has been a difficult term in many ways, it has also been an inspiring one and whilst we look forward to the break it will be great to have all of the children back on Monday 19 April with a full term ahead of us and what we all hope will be a gradual return to normality.
Happy Easter everybody.
