You are the rainbow children of 2020...
Back in March, we were sent home to stay,
Learning online was our new school day.
We made rainbow pictures and went out to cheer,
The key workers protecting those we hold dear.
It's not been the year for which we had hoped,
But we are amazed at your strength and how well you have coped.
Hold on to the memories that we have shared,
Remembering friends and those who cared.
The class of 2020 will hold a place in our hearts,
For the courage you've shown from the very start.
Mrs Murray, Miss Hattersley and Mrs Bates are very proud of you and will miss you all!
Hope that you are all keeping safe and working hard. Below you will find the learning grid and documents for this week. Keep sharing your home learning with us on Twitter @SummerlanePS
Please don't forget parents that if you need any help or support with your child's home learning you can contact school by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Love from Mrs Murray and Mrs Bates xxx
