“AS we settle into the term, in whatever way your child is accessing their learning, we have all been celebrating community and a sense of togetherness this week. From teachers and children in school to children and parents at home, I hear lots of positive thoughts about Library Club, class and year group conversations, as well as Mrs McAlinden’s fitness time.
“It is important to retain and nourish these connections and I am very pleased that with practise and familiarity, children are becoming braver to participate, increasingly able to listen to their friends and confident to express their opinions during these sharing times. I have been in discussion with Mr North (King’s Ely’s Head of Vocal Studies) and he is very keen to explore opportunities for us to sing together soon. I look forward to sharing details of this in the coming weeks. Of all the things our Acremont community enjoys doing after dining together and playing together, it is singing together and over the last few months we have sorely missed the joy of communal singing in Assembly.
“Thank you to those families who were able to join our shared Celebration Assembly this morning. It was a very special ‘first’ for us all to be together whether in class or at home. As I mentioned in Assembly this morning, I am very proud of all your children and the way they have adjusted to yet more strange times. Their hard work, perseverance and positive attitude reflect the laughter and fun that continues in Nursery and Acremont House – and clearly is going on at home too.
“I wish you all a peaceful and happy weekend.”
