Keeping in Touch

It would be lovely to see how the children are getting on with their Home Learning tasks, and a way for us all to keep in touch, if you want to include a short explanation all the better. However, it is the schools policy not to include names with photos on the website and so if you wish us to please add you permission on the email.

Photos and captions can be sent to

Well Done George!

Week Commencing 20th April 2020

The children in school on Friday painted beautiful bright pictures to send to Belvoir Vale Care Home

to help cheer up their residents while they can't have any visitors.

They also made Birthday Cards which we sent to Captain Tom Moore who will be celebrating his 100th Birthday on Thursday 30th April 2020. Captain Moore has walked over 100 laps of his garden, raising over £29,000,000 and also getting to Number One in the charts with his record 'You'll never walk alone' which he sang with Michael Ball. We were all amazed at his fantastic achievements and wanted to send him Birthday Cards to mark such a momentous occasion.



Charlie has done two of his topics set from the menu, he has made a Roman Shield and also written a letter to my best friend Tyler.

           During Lockdown, children from Stoke are sharing their garden football videos for BBC Stoke to add commentary.
           Port Vale Community trust encouraged the children of their area to send in football videos from their garden. All of the videos were sent to BBC Radio Stoke and given to the Stoke football commentator Phil Bowers who added commentary.                                                                                                                                                       Coronavirus has forced people to stay in their houses on lockdown and Phil Bowers is one of many keeping people entertained in or around their homes.                                                                                                                 Joe Wickes’ YouTube hit training is also keeping people entertained in their homes with indoor exercise and Lincoln City football clubs academy coach Lee Moran has been maintaining players fitness levels by setting various different football challenges and putting the results into a leader board.
