4 March – Letter to the children from Mrs Williams

Dear Ranvilles Stars

I’m really excited about seeing you all on Monday 8 March 2021…it will be amazing having everyone back in school. We have a new motto to welcome you back: ‘Be you…Explore…Excel…’
We are really looking forward to helping you to achieve this.

It has been the strangest year. Since going into lockdown in March 2020, some of you have attended school nearly every day whilst some of you have been in and out over the year switching between school and learning at home… and some of you have mainly been remote learning at home. It has been very complicated for all of you and us.

I really hope now that we can all be together again avoiding further lockdown.During this time, many of you have become expert learners on Google Classroom whilst your teachers have been amazing at supporting your learning. But nothing beats being face-to-face and being together in a classroom. This is where many of us are at our best. We will take the great things we have learned from Google Classroom to help us become
even better learners in the future.

I would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to all parents and carers at home who have juggled everything whilst ensuring you have been supported in your education. They are incredible people dedicating their time and focus – thank you and well done.

I imagine Monday morning will bring all sorts of emotions. Some of you will be so excited about coming back and others may feel nervous. Adults in school will feel this too. I also imagine that you will feel happy about seeing your friends, classmates and teachers again. You may feel unsure about being in crowds again or worried about schoolwork.

This is okay. We will look after each other as we always do at Ranvilles Junior. We have great respect for each other and as always, I am sure we will all look out for each other.

We all play a vital part in an amazing team. We all still need to follow the rules in our class bubbles for our own and others’ safety. If you are unsure of anything then please ask your teacher or another adult in school – we are all ready and happy to help you.

I can’t wait to see you all on Monday 😊.
Love from
Mrs Williams x
