How we are supporting our Community during Covid
We have been supporting our families and community in many ways during the Covid Pandemic.
During the First Lockdown we sent all of our children individualized Postcards from the head teacher and their class teacher.
At Christmas we provided all of our families with hampers entitled ‘Quality ingredients for quality time,’ where we provided, chocolates, biscuits, sweets, hot chocolate , a pack of playing cards and a booklet filled with card games.
The school has applied for hampers from Active Fenland on behalf of our Free school meal families for December and February halfterms.
We were successful when applying for a grant from the Winter grant to provide hampers which included basic ingredients for cake making and other essential items ,as we are holding a ‘Guyhirn Bake Off Day ‘ on 1st February. We are inviting our wider community to join us and post pictures of their masterpieces on a Facebook Post.
We created an Amazon Wish list and were overwhelmed by the support we received from our wider community with all of our items purchased within four hours. This has enabled us to provide all of our children with a bird house to construct and paint and resources to make a wind turbine and a vehicle which will be made by the children on our Design and Technology Day on 8th February.
As well as providing Live teaching and remote learning we have bought each child work books with tasks that can be completed in their own time alongside remote learning or in addition.
The children in school have been writing letters and drawing pictures which we have delivered to members of our community and received some lovely feedback. 'Your lovely message was a ray of sunshine on a very grey day. THANK YOU. '
We have opened a Community Book swap/ Library that is available to all of our community during school hours located at the school entrance.
