Whitewater CE Primary School

Monday 1st June 2020

A new start

As you will know, schools across the country will begin to open to more children starting today.  Over the next few weeks Whitewater will see more pupils return slowly.  Unfortunately, it won't be everyone right now and this means for most of you guys you will continue your Home Learning for the time being.  We will continue to post suggested activates and carry on the blog.  Over the next few days, your adults will receive a letter explaining your learning for the next few weeks, so keep an eye out for this. 

School is looking very different at the moment and it might not be the same when you eventually return, we just don't know.  Right now our classroom has had most of the desks removed.  There are 7 left, all spaced apart to keep everyone as safe as can be.  Breaktimes and Lunchtimes look different, with each group having their own section on the playground as we are not allowed to play with different groups.  Everyone is going to try hard to keep 2m apart.   We are all having to get used to a new routine but we know that the children of Whitewater will work hard to adapt.  

So, as we look towards your eventual return maybe now is the time to begin getting into a really good daytime routine (if you aren't already).  By this we mean, getting up at the same time each day and having your learning and play planned into chunks to help structure your day.  

Today we'd like to know how you are structuring your day.  Have you designed your own timetable?  

We miss you all and cannot wait to have you all back in school together again.  You should be very proud of yourselves, you have worked so hard over the past weeks and have adapted to these strange times so well.  We are very proud of you! Keep going!

    Hi Mrs L and Mrs B We have our own white board hung up on the wall with our time table on it. We have timed breaks PE walks etc. We are making our own dream catchers this week because the rings and beads and the feathers all arrived a couple days after the dream catching blog. We looked online for a dream catcher tutorial and we found one if you want to see it here's the link -->https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vmtkc7FOWLw How was your week off ours was good? I hope to see you all again soon.

    Hi everyone! My half term has been good because it was my Birthday! My day is going to be two hours of learning and the rest playing and working on my Cubs badges. Sadly all the pheasant chicks died :( we don't know why, we just didn't do it right. For the last week we have been camping in a tent in the garden, for Cubs i have had to sleep outside for six nights to get a badge for my new camp blanket, it has been fun, Mummy and i are sleeping the full nine nights with Luke, not that i want to. I got a fish tank and i got six fish but hoping to get three or four more. The tank is in my bedroom.

    Hi Oliver, Lovely to hear from you. It sounds like you have a good plan to your day! I wonder what books you have been reading during your reading time. Mrs L & Mrs B

    Hello James, We hope you are well. We love the idea of having a whiteboard hung up to help you see your timetable! So pleased to hear the dream catcher resources have now arrived. Make sure you take a picture of your finished item to show us! Mrs L & Mrs B

    Hello Zachary, So sorry to hear about the chicks, this can happen with wild animals. They are tricky to raise! You were so very kind to give them a chance by looking after them the way you did. So excited to hear you have a fish tank. I wonder what type of fish you have in it. It sounds like you have your day planned out well, I like how you have made sure you have time for learning and extra activities like your Cubs badges! Good luck with the outdoor sleeping, at least it is warm at them moment! Mrs L & Mrs B
