Hello to all the children and families of children in Sapphire Class,


We really hope you have had a good first week, at least the sun has been shining! We are missing the children and can't wait to see you all again.


Thank you so much for the update emails that you have been sending in, it is really lovely to hear from you and see some of the things that you have been doing. We will continue to post a list of suggested activities on this page every day and we would love to see how you get on with them.


We have attached a timetable that might help you to structure your day, but please don’t feel that you must stick to this – the activities could be completed at any time during the day to suit you and your child. Some days you might find that you need to follow the lead of your child or work is exceptionally busy and you don't get as much done. This is fine and we fully understand and support the juggling act that you are all trying to perform! Please email us and let us know if there is anything we can do to help. 


We access the class email account at varying points every week day. The email address is


Please take this unexpected time to enjoy lots of quality time with each other. Some children concentrate best in small chunks but be reassured that just 10mins quality time with an adult is extremely valuable.


We really do hope to see you all again very soon and look forward to hearing all about how you are filling your days.


Mrs Osborne and Mrs Foster-Bazin




Home Reading


During this time one of the most important things that you can do is read regularly with your child. This could be reading together (for instance take turns to read a page each), reading to an older sibling, and also having a book read to them. There are many books that the children can access online (please see links below).


Happy reading!
