I love this project. I have really enjoyed seeing the models come into school each morning. You are all very creative and imaginative. Well done.
Only two weeks ago, our school was operating as normal. Our children were learning in classrooms and playing outside among the spring flowers during breaktimes. Our teachers were planning exciting lessons for the remaining weeks before our Easter holidays and even some staff, were planning on travelling abroad for a week or so.
Suddenly, we found ourselves working hard to follow the new rules in our country. We were all washing our hands at every opportunity, sanitising, and in recent days, we were keeping social distancing rules. Throughout all this, our families kept bringing our children to school, our pupils kept learning and we all stayed calm. Our Y6 pupils even went on residential for the week! We’re a close community! We work well as a team. We’re strong!
In the background, the staff in our school were planning for big changes. We didn’t know what would happen next but we were planning. As I write now, our school, like all the schools in our country, are closed. We must stay at home as much as possible. We know we have a few exceptions. We also know that we need our key and critical workers to still go out to work to keep our country ticking over.
Our school is dedicated to keeping our key and critical workers doing their jobs. We remain open for the children of these workers, for our most vulnerable pupils and those with Educational Health Care Plans. The staff in school, are selfless. They are still showing up for work to teach some of our children. I am proud of them. Behind the scenes, the other staff are designing home learning, making videos, sharing links and answering emails from the children. Our children won’t be forgotten – no matter how long this goes on for.
I will continue to update all our families too. The most important message from me for now is this: stay safe, stay at home and stay healthy. We want to see everyone return when we are allowed to open our doors to everyone once again.
Our worthy winner is such a friendly happy girl. She is always smiling and willing to be friends with everyone. She tries so hard during learning time and likes to offer her ideas and opinions. We absolutely love having her in emerald class, she is an absolute pleasure! Congratulations!
This worthy pupil embodies all the qualities we expect of a Pride of Prince Edward and has been ready to receive this award for years. She is incredibly kind, incredibly polite and incredibly helpful. She makes sure that everyone feels welcome in our classroom and makes it her mission to be a friend to everyone. Congratulations!
It’s a pleasure to have this wonderful pupil in Emerald Class. She is hardworking and a friend to everyone. She’s sensible, kind, thoughtful and well-mannered. She always tries her best and always produces good quality work. It must run in the family as her brother was an Emerald Class superstar too! Keep up the excellent, hard work and effort; and enjoy being part of the Pride of Prince Edward team.
