Creativity, Curiosity and Hope

We hope that you are all well and keeping yourselves safe and busy being creative and curious.

Dear children and their grown ups,

 

It feels a very strange time for all of us … a time for change but also a time for new possible adventures.

 

Teachers have organised lots of learning activities for you either in your pack or on the school website under your year group - note on home learning tab - and on our Kids Site. Teachers will update these in the coming weeks: http://www.whistonjunior-infant.co.uk/classes/our_classes.html. We will also make 'keep in touch' calls to you weekly (via your parent’s mobile of course), so you know we are thinking of you in the coming weeks and to check if you need any other support with your home learning - or just for a natter.

 

Over the next few weeks you will be spending lots of special time with your ‘grown ups’ and making many new special memories, but remember to:

  • Keep being resilient,
  • Keep reading,
  • Keep working hard,
  • Keep being curious,
  • Keep being creative,
  • Keep trying new challenges,
  • Keep looking after each other,
  • But most of all …….. KEEP SMILING J

Children can you also do me a big job?

 

I would like to create three albums on the website full of how you have been creative, curious and active. So please email your photographs to me: t.angell@wji.wwpat.org and I will add them to this page. Keep checking to see if yours or your friends' photographs have been added.

 

I would also like to have an album full of messages of kindness and hope. So please be creative and paint, draw or make rainbows and email them to me with your messages. Alternatively or additionally please feel free to tie them to the school fence on Saville Road when you are on your daily walk. Please feel free join in the rainbow pom pom craze too and tie them to the fence

Lots of love from,

 

Mrs Angell, your teachers and teaching assistants, Mrs Lilleyman, Mrs Furness, school cooks, ‘dinner ladies’ and Mr Hartland.
