Letter to Parents / Carers 9/04/2020

Dear Parents / Carers,
As we come to the end of what would have been the first week of the Easter holidays, I hope that this message finds you safe and well.It has been great to see the variety of home learning that has been taking place. There have certainly been a lot of amazing cakes that have been baked.As we are working with a skeleton staff, for the time being, all Parent Mails will be sent to all parents/carers as our filters seem to be compromised when working from home. We will ensure that the title of the Parent Mail is clear so you will know if it is something that you need to read, or not !
Our office email (office@yaptonschool.org) is currently in use for everyone and is regularly checked and responded to by Mrs Bayliss, Mr Hughes or myself. Please use this to contact us if you need us.
You will have read some news and twitter reports yesterday that schools will open after Easter, these were not based on factual information, we have not had any directive from the Government to change anything at this point in time.
The entries that we have received so far for the  Easter Egg Head competition are really clever…the judges are going to have an eggstra tricky time deciding on the winners. If you haven’t entered yet, please do !!
Some good news…. the Easter Bunny has been declared as a Key Worker … so will need to keep working !!!Take Care of yourselves and your families, we are here if you need us. The Lord bless you and keep you; 
The Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; 
The Lord turn his face towards you and give you peace.

Easter Message for Pupils 9/04/2020

Dear children,

what a sunny first week of what would have been the Easter holidays ! We hope that you have enjoyed some sunshine aswell as the amazing baking, arts and crafts, maths, writing and gardening that you have been doing. We have really enjoyed seeing your incredible work.Some of you have been in school with us this week and we wanted to make sure that those of you who aren’t in school know that we are thinking of you. so, in our school windows that face onto North End Road at the front of the school, there are rainbows, hearts and messages for you to see when you are out on your once day exercise time. If you would like to join in with us, please make a green heart (our school uniform is green… that’s why we have chosen green ) and put it in one of your windows so that your friends can look for the green hearts aswell.  The entries to the Easter Egg Head competition so far have been EGGS-TRA-ORDINARY !!!

If you have entered yet then don’t worry, there is still time… send a photo of your entry to our office@yaptonschool.org email for the judges to see.

Some GOOD NEWS … the EASTER BUNNY is a Key Worker and will still be working !! But please be patient and understanding if the normal Easter Delivery looks slightly different this year !!

In our Whole School Worship time, we would have been reflecting on the power of the Easter Story and the Jelly Bean Prayer is a popular prayer in many schools so we would like to share it with you.Take Care, keep being wonderful you …  

From Mrs Huggett and all of the staff at Yapton C of E Primary School.
