Dear parents, carers, staff, governors and friends,

Wow! What a wonderful week it has been across the school as we have all enjoyed celebrating World Book Day/Week. We hope that you and your children enjoyed listening to stories, sharing books, reading out loud, guessing who The Masked Readers were, entering our competitions and dressing up, as much as we did. Thank you to all the staff who made the week possible, especially Jenny Guest, our English lead and Elliot Bodman for putting our video together! We hope that this week has sparked an even greater love for reading, hearing stories and creating your own and that this continues – reading as a family, on your own, or sharing a picture book is so important for your child’s education, mental health and imagination.

This week you will have received a letter and guidance giving information on how we will open the school to all children on Monday 8th March. By now, we hope that you will have read it through carefully and have emailed the school if you have any questions. We are really looking forward to opening up all of our classrooms again and welcoming the children back. By working closely with you all, we will be able to keep our school as safe as possible for everyone.

Please remember to bring your face mask or visor with you every day as you will not be allowed on site without one.

Best wishes

Kate Porter and the Brindishe Manor team
