To all the children at Joseph Hood
Good afternoon to you, Mrs Saville here! I hope you are all well and have been able to get outside for a daily walk or been playing in the garden if you have one, and that you have had the chance to enjoy some of the sunny days we have had.
Today is the last day of the Spring term, before we break up for the Easter Holidays-though I am sure like me, you are finding the days are all a bit confusing at the moment. Normally on the last day of term I would say goodbye to you on the gate but since we can’t do that today, I decided to send you a message instead. I have been thinking of you all over the last two weeks and wondering what you have all been doing.
I hope you have been remembering to listen to your parents and carers and are doing what they say. I hope you are also being kind to everyone in your house-especially your brothers and sisters if you have them.
We won’t be setting any school work over the next two weeks so take some time to relax and enjoy doing the things that make you happy, like cooking, art, playing outside if you can, reading, watching a movie, playing a board game. Try not to spend too much time on your screens or playing computer games and instead make the most of your time and be thankful for all the good things- like your families, spending time at home or noticing the changes outside as Spring comes. You can always draw a rainbow or a Joseph Hood boat to put up in your windows so people know when they are out that you are part of the Joseph Hood family.
I will be in touch again after Easter and am looking forward to when we can all be back in school together again.
With best wishes and lots of love,
