Fr Ross looked very cheerful as he read us the story of Jonah and the Whale today! He sends everyone his best wishes and hopes to see you all again soon - he is also in isolation in the presbytery and occasionally gets to wave at the small group in school over the fence.
Tomorrow we have Mrs Paul returning to read a sequel to one of her earlier stories and Mrs Metcalfe will also have Part 2 of the Twits.
Keeping in Touch
As it now looks like being several more weeks before we are going to be back at school, we want to touch base with everyone. One of the staff team will therefore give you a ring between 9.30am and 5pm over the next few days to have a quick chat and see how you are doing and if we can support in any way. We are all working from home, so the number may come up as a "private number".
Sign Language Challenge from Miss Taylor!

As we can't do any of that this year, Miss French-Bell is creating some online resources for you instead. Have a look at our website here:
Thank you to all those who replied to the form about this. Mr Simpson is now setting up activities for those who wanted access and we will send out login details tomorrow.
