Friday 10th July

As it is the penultimate week before the summer holidays, I just wanted to say a huge shout out to everyone in 5 Green. It has been an extraordinary year and you have all demonstrated resilience, courage and kindness during this time. I’ve been hearing that many of you have found innovative ways to keep in touch with friends and relatives, working hard, sharing with siblings and helping your adults around the house. I have felt very proud of you and the way you have represented our school during lockdown.👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽


5 Blue have been particularly courageous and resilient, having a change of teacher isn’t easy and I always enjoy talking to the other teachers at Clayton about 5 Blue as we’re all very proud of how you’ve all dealt with the transition and the pandemic. There are so many super stars in the class who have kept on working hard, posted on the blog, and completed every task set on our learning platform and Ed Shed. You’ve been truly phenomenal.👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
