(To the tune of “And So This Is Xmas”)
And so this is the last week.
And what have we done?
Three terms nearly over
And a 4th not yet begun…
Our schools are so empty these days, but we’re lucky at Village School because when the children aren’t here, the chickens move in to take their place. We’re also constantly trying out new ways to connect with the children and ensure they learn something whether at home or at school, but it isn’t easy.
Congratulations to Emily Marker and Rhiannon Kelly; bikes and skateboards are the thing during breaks and lunches at lockdown; and training our new chickens to come when called!
Samantha’s group has a “Bee Garden” where they plan to plant every colour of the rainbow and also add some colourful mosaics around the enclosure’s edge to help brighten it up as well. Stay tuned for performance dates updates.
Lockdown Six started fairly successfully today, with help from our IT support as well as our learning supports! And the preps have had their first swimming lesson this term.
It’s now time to contact your teacher and decide if you would like a face-to-face meeting, Also some Covid reminders, updates from past students and organising performance costumes.
One good thing about being in lockdown is having a chance to practice our newly acquired IT skills. The teachers have seamlessly slipped back into their lockdown routines and it’s business as usual.
I hope you all had a restful happy time. We’re all geared up to have an exciting and busy term in Term 3, with a new timetable, the sleepover, whole school performance and more.
Thank you so much to our PnF for organizing this event. Due to lockdown, we have postponed the sleepover until week two of term 3. And I’d really like to have a production meeting with parents interested in helping out with costumes, sets etc.
As our first day of official remote learning started, I was back to my usual 2020 morning – which was sitting on the verandah with my thermometer and a clipboard, waiting for the arrivals.
