Life at Dishforth CE Primary School

Coronavirus

3rd April

Hello everyone,

As we reach the end of the spring term and the end of our first two weeks of isolation, I just wanted to thank parents, grandparents and carers for all your support over the recent weeks.

The response to home learning has been fantastic and it is so good to see not only the maths and English that children are continuing to work on but also all the super creative and interactive learning that has been going on at home. I thoroughly enjoyed looking through portfolios this morning and seeing all the different things children have been learning at home. Across all the classes, so many photos of baking, building, drawing, exercising to name but a few.

Thank you to all the parents, grandparents, carers (and older brother and sisters) who have worked with us to make this possible!

Over the next two weeks, teachers will be taking a break from Class Do Jo.

 I know that some parents have been very appreciative of having the daily work set on Do Jo to help to create a routine and structure for children so whilst we won’t be setting daily work over the holidays, I will be posting a couple of links to open-ended activities that may be useful.

However, do remember, that is actually good for children to be bored sometimes and being bored can encourage imagination and creativity, develop problem solving and improve mental health -amongst other things!

On behalf of everyone at school, I wish you and families a very Happy Easter!

Teachers will also be checking Class DoJo during the school day.
