Good afternoon Friends,
I hope you have enjoyed your half term and stayed safe in the sun.
We are looking forward to welcoming back most of our Year 6 next week. We will be operating at least eight bubbles which will involve a lot of teaching and support staff. Clearly this will have an impact on the home learning we are able to provide through Seesaw but we are trying to mitigate that as best we can.
We are only expecting Year 6 and Key Worker children who have received an email on Monday. If you are expecting your child to attend you will have had this separate email with further detailed instruction. If you have not received one of these, we are not expecting you.
We will be holding a ‘whole school’ assembly every Monday and a whole school celebration assembly every Friday to which you are all invited. This Monday we will open the Zoom link at 9.15am and assembly will start at 9.30am. If you wanted to pop on early and wave to some of your friends you are most welcome - sadly just before we start I will have to ‘Mute All’
We would also like to make you aware of this opportunity;
We’re really excited to invite you to get involved in a special #YVatHome project over the next few weeks!
Young Voices, the current Guinness World Record holders for the world’s largest simultaneous sing are staging the World’s Largest Children’s Choir at Home for a record breaking #PowerInMe Singing Challenge and dedicate it to all our teachers.
On 2nd June 2020 2.30pm - you are invited along with families and children from across the world to pay tribute to all teachers by joining together to sing “The Power in Me” from the safety of your own homes.
You can register your involvement at youngvoices.co.uk/powerinme to access free learning resources for the song.
Between now and 2nd June, you are also encouraged to take part in the #PowerInMe singing challenge and to film yourselves singing the song’s lyrics “I've got the Power In Me" and post it online with the hashtag to see who responds completing the song’s chorus "You’ve got the Power in You!".
It is all explained here by our conductors David Lawrence and Francisco Núñez - here.
Before 2nd June we have provided a selection of free online rehearsals that you can watch in school or at home to prepare for the big day:
