As you would have seen on the email you were sent on Friday, we are hoping to open Duloe school again on Tuesday 2nd June for Year 6 and the children of critical workers. We will then organise a phased return for Year 1, Reception and Nursery.
There will be another letter sent out this week, once we have completed all necessary risk assessments.
Obviously, among our community there will be a host of views about school opening. As a school, we will follow the DfE guidelines and the safeguarding of children and staff's health will be the key priority.
We will support all our families whether they choose to send their children back to school or not.
Thank you so much for all of your entries for the VE Day baking competition and the mosaic design competition. Your creations have been amazing.
Over the last few weeks, we have been directing you toward the 'White Rose' website which has produced maths activities for each Year group. Unfortunately, White Rose have now stopped free access for parents. As a consequence of this, as a school we have bought a subscription to continue to access these resources. Please bear with us while the paper work is finalised, then we will upload the activities to class pages to go alongside the video examples.
This week, we celebrate VE Day, marking 75 years since the end of WWII. Hopefully many of you will be able to mark this occasion on Friday with a picnic in your garden or something similar. Our wonderful PTFA are hoping that at your picnic or tea party, you might be able to show off your baking skills. They are offering a small prize for the best entry in each class. Send a photo of your creations to your class teacher and we will forward them onto the PTFA for judging. Ready, set, bake!!!
You also still have time to enter our new school mosaic design competition, being judged by the Bishop of Truro. We have had some excellent entrees already but we would love some more.
As part of this weeks Home Learning, we have included a writing competition to design your own ‘Nature in the Neighbourhood’ guide. Bridge Schools have teamed up with the National Trust to put this competition together. We would love you to have a go. Send your finished pieces to your class teacher. Please see attachment.
Thank you also for all of your competition entries to design a new mosaic for outside of the school. You still have time to get your entries in. We can't wait to see them.
For home learning this week, we would like as many children as possible to join in with our art competition. Our beautiful mosaic sign, outside the school, is beginning to look a little tired, with some of the mosaics falling off. We are running a competition for a new mosaic design to replace this one (although we will repair the existing one and relocate it). We are aiming to make the mosaic with the children on the first day back after lockdown.
We are very lucky that the Bishop of Truro, the RT Revd Philip Mountstephen, has agreed to judge our competition. For more information please see the 'Art Competition' document below.
We are inspired by the awe and wonder of the world.
We are bold and innovative in our approach to find new solutions to the challenges we face.
We are the best we can be.
We take responsibility for our actions in an environment of mutual respect.
We overcome all barriers to reach our potential, developing a capacity to improve further.
We are passionate about learning.
