Many of you have joined our video lessons and catch-ups this week. It has been lovely to see all of your lovely smiling faces – for the first time, for most – for a few weeks now. I hope you enjoyed seeing us, too. Mr Warner led another Bake Along session on Monday and Miss Knight held a ‘show-and-tell’ session. It was also lovely to see many of you join me, Charlotte and Matilda (my children) in Hot Chocolate Thursday this morning. Thank you all for welcoming us into your homes and we hope to see you online, again, very soon.
The challenges continue…
I know that for many of you being stuck at home (and for parents and carers, keeping up with the home-schooling) is becoming increasingly challenging as time goes by. Please know that you are not alone and we understand. If you are finding anything difficult we are here for you, so please get in touch with us. If home-schooling is a challenge you might find my recent blog helpful, which you can find here. We would never want home-schooling to become something that causes stress and conflict in your homes.
For our children out there, you might also want to remind yourself about learning buttons. Can you remember what they are – and more importantly have you been using them when learning at home? Click here if you need a reminder!

Some children have shared their stories an poems for my Creative Challenge. Here’s a great short story from Emily… all about the fairies in her garden:
