HALF TERM WEEK

22 May 2020

Dear Parents and Carers

As next week is half term we will not be sending out our usual Home Learning Guide. However, we attach some Non-Screen Activities for you to enjoy at home together with our weekly Well Being Newsletter.

Teachers have made new messages which we have posted on the school website together with Miss Minihane’s Friday Fitness video.

Missing you loads and hope to see some of you next week when you collect your reading book from school.

Yours sincerely

Mrs M Nichol

BOOKS FOR CHILDREN

21 May 2020

Dear Parents and Carers

I hope this letter finds everyone well during these challenging times.

As we all approach what should have been the half term break for the children, the school would like to give every child a brand new reading book for them to keep and enjoy at home.

The books have been recommended to us by our wonderful Librarian Ruth and she selected them from the Lewisham Library Book Awards. The books are intended as a gift for the whole family and if you find that the book is too challenging for your child to read independently then please do share the book and read it together. Research has shown that children should be read to well into their teenage years as it helps them to understand the complex changes of tone and language between speech and prose.

So that we can respect the social distancing rules, you can collect their book from the car park on the days and times set out below. While we would love to be able to catch up, you will of course understand that in order to comply with social distancing this will be a case of picking up your book and then leaving so we can make sure as many of you as possible are able to come during the time slot. If you are unable to collect a book for your child, please email the school office and we will ensure one is posted out to you.

Tuesday, 26 May 2020 –       Y3: 10am to 11.30am

Tuesday, 26 May 2020 –       Y5: 1pm to 2.30pm

Wednesday, 27 May 2020 – Y4: 10am to 11.30am

Wednesday, 27 May 2020 – Y6: 1pm to 2.30pm.

Thank you to all the children who have replied to their teacher’s letters, the teachers really are enjoying reading these and hearing what the children have been up to - please keep them coming!

Please keep safe and as always, I hope to see you all very soon.

Yours sincerely

Mrs M Nichol

MS MINIHANE'S FITNESS FRIDAY

15 May 2020

Dear Parents and Carers

As always, I sincerely hope you and your families are well and keeping safe.

I know many of you have been getting up to exercise with Joe Wicks every morning but I have now managed to get our wonderful Ms Minihane to do her very own fitness video routine for you and your family to take part in. Who knows – teachers may join in too!

Every Friday, starting today, she will upload a fitness video routine on to our school website (www.stillnessjs.lewisham.sch.uk). You can access “Ms Minihane’s Fitness Friday” via the link on the front page on our website.

Remember to check the video messages from teachers that are updated regularly.

Best wishes.

Mrs M Nichol
