Harry and Cameron – Orange 1 – For wonderful writing and putting together some super sentences. Descriptive and fun. Well done!


At the end of a very busy half term, during a difficult time for everyone, I just wanted to say, “THANK YOU!” A thank you to each and every one of the school community that has played their part in remaining safe and being committed to your child’s education (whether that being in school or remotely at home). This includes Parents, carers, grandparents, staff, children and governors for the part they have had to play during the wider opening of school during a global pandemic. It has been hard for many people, but as normal we have pulled together, communicated clearly and adjusted plans to make sure it all works and we are safe.


This week, we saw class bubbles and staff begin to return to school after periods of isolation and it has been lovely to have the school community filling up again! The children continue to smile and work hard and I admire their drive and determination to do well and keep going! I am so proud of the children. They realise now more than ever the importance of being educated at school and how the school community is there for them (even when at home).


I have been doing Rainbow Rewards for the last 4 weeks in classrooms and absolutely loved it. We have talked about the different values and who needs a celebration ‘shout out’ with a certificate. I have also been asking the children to consider who they would give a Rainbow Reward to and why. The thoughts have been reflective and mature. I have been very proud of the children. This morning, we even trialled Rainbow Rewards virtually by TEAMs and it was so amazing to see four classes on screen at a time. A virtual assembly to be proud of.


From everyone at Team GB, we genuinely hope that you have a good two weeks half term holiday. Remember to follow the Government guidelines and keep socially distant and safe as we want to see you back to school safe and well on the 2nd November 2020 as we open the doors again for Autumn 2! Please do let us know of any positive cases over the holidays or any travel arrangements over the half term holiday, which may mean you having to quarantine on your return.


Keep safe, happy and well. Take care,


Mrs Bates

Head Teacher
