Update 11th February 2021
Dear Parents and Carers,
Tomorrow is our last day of term before our half term break. Well done, you've made it! We know that that term has been challenging but we are so grateful for the continued support to ensure that your children continue to access their education, albeit remotely to ensure that they don't fall behind their peers.
The school will be closed over the half term break. Spring 2 will start on Monday 22nd February.
Over the past few weeks, we have been setting optional weekly challenges for the children to take part in on both Tapestry (Nursery and Reception) and Google Classroom (Years 1 - 6).
So far we have had the following challenges:
WC 22/1/21 - EYFS & Y1 - The 'not a box' challenge. Year 2 - 6 - The Lockdown Limerick Challenge. A special mention to Amie-Louise in Y3 for a brilliant limerick.
WC 29/1/21 - All year group - 'What makes me special' challenge in line with Children's Mental Health Week. There were some super videos, drawings, posters and written messages uploaded.
This week Mrs Richardson and Mrs Shrimpton have set show and tell challenges on both Tapestry and Google Classroom. It is not too late for your children to take part!
Although next week is half term and there will be no remote learning set, there will be a challenge set by Mr Holmes...The De Lucy Bake Off Challenge! This will be posted on Tapestry and Google Classroom as an option activity for families to do together in the half term. Staff will look at any pictures on our return on 22nd.
We have postponed Mr Darroch and Mr Lado's PE challenge for after half term.
Earlier this week was Safer Internet Day and the children were set tasks to complete to help them to stay safe online.
As a reminder you can find out information about helping your child stay safe online on our website. Weekly emails are sent with the #wakeupwednesday campaign with helpful parent guides. https://www.delucyprimaryschool.co.uk/Parents/Online-Safety/
We are now holding a waiting list for devices. If your child has a school device and is not completing work as expected, the device will be recalled in line with the loan agreement. If your allocated device is recalled, you will be expected to return it by the end of the next day.
Half-term holiday meals During half term, nutritious balanced lunches will be available for children and young people across the borough ensuring that the most vulnerable families are supported during the school break. There are six different locations across the borough. For more information about where and when holiday meals are available visit www.royalgreenwich.gov.uk/holidaymeals The service is commissioned by Royal Greenwich and delivered by Greenwich Cooperative Development Agency (GCDA), supported by partners Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) and Greenwich Leisure Limited (GLL), who also part fund the project. Lunches will be available at Woolwich library, the Greenwich Centre, the Plumstead Centre, the Eltham Centre, Thamesmere Leisure Centre, and Sutcliffe Park over half term.
Have a lovely half term
Mrs Lodge and the Senior Leadership Team
