Well today would have been your graduation day (16.7.2020).

We're sorry we can't say goodbye and good luck in the usual way but above is a little poem for you all and below,  some messages from your teachers.

We are all so incredibly proud of every single one of you; those children who are are continuing to learn at home and those who have returned to school.

Good luck in year one and we can't wait to see all of your smiley faces in September. Have a fun filled summer break.

Take care and stay safe! 

  

Whilst We Can't Hug-A lovely video explaining how we can show love whilst social distancing.

Hedgehog and Tortoise want to give each other a great big hug, but they're not allowed to touch. This is a great video to show those children coming back to school to help prepare them for the social changes that are happening.  

Everybody Worries-Written and illustrated by Jon Burgerman.

In this bright and friendly picture book, children learn that it's okay to worry about corona virus. Fun rhyming couplets keep the tone gentle and supportive, and you will find plenty of ideas for dealing with corona virus in a positive way.

A lovely lady from Galini Therapies has a big hello to say to our children at Court Farm Primary. She has a few relaxation techniques for children, for situations where they may need a little support in remaining calm. Check them out and have a go!

Thank you to all of our families in EYFS for sharing what they have been doing during their home learning time. It puts a huge smile on all of the teacher's faces when we receive the photographs that you email across to us. 

Our topic this half term is going to take us on our travels to different countries and cultures all around the world. These next two weeks are our final two weeks of this term and will take us to Africa and Hawaii!

How exciting! The Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Mohammed Azim has a message for our children at Court Farm Primary to introduce our topic.
