Dear Class 8 and parents
I'm so excited that we are all going to be in school on Monday - I hope you are too!
Although we won't be exactly 'back to normal' we will be close to it. We will have our class together and for that, I'm really grateful.
I am putting our timetable together over the weekend but today I've finalised with Mr Gosling out PE slot. It will be last session on a Wednesday so on that day, you all need to come into school in your PE kits. You will miss your afternoon break only because it will then give you a full hour of PE, which I think will be worth it. You will be doing basketball for the rest of this term.
If you have any questions about Monday or next week, please either email me or school or you are welcome to message me on Teams.
Can't wait to see you all 'in the flesh'! Have a wonderful weekend.
Dear Class 8
If you haven't hear already, we are in a lockdown again and schools are closed. This is very sad news. I am personally gutted as I feel I have missed your glorious personalities too much already this year. However, we are where we are.
As with every teacher at Long Bennington, we are keen to ensure that you have a continued education and I will be working hard to make sure there are resources available to maintain your learning. We are meeting tomorrow, as a full school staff, to make arrangements for this to take place. Please keep an eye on Teams where you will find resources and I will let you know timings for us 'checking in' face to face virtually so that you can ask questions.
If you need to find out further information about the closure, which does still allow children of key workers to attend, then either email email@example.com or ring school but please be patient as there will be a lot of people in the same position trying to contact us.
Finally, please be assured that we are all here for you .we only ever want the best for you and will do whatever we can to ensure you have the best learning experiences we can deliver under these exceptional circumstances.
Welcome to Class 8's page.
The last days of term were busy: pantomimes; a visit from Ms Butterfield; creative paper folding; virtual students in the classroom; carols and Kristingles.. and a quick Maths assessment squeezed in, too. It was the end of a long and, certainly for me, happy term. I cannot commend Class 8 enough on their resilience, team spirit and fabulous effort. I have had a can't wait to see them all in the New Year for our half a day together.
Have a merry (if perhaps, a bit different) Christmas and a happy New Year.
Best festive wishes,
