Thoughts for the Week during Remote Learning:

Thoughts for the week (22.5.20)


I hope by now you will all have had the opportunity to read and digest the letter sent out yesterday about partial school reopening from 2nd June.

Everything has been written with the aim of helping you come to your own decisions about the next steps in your child/ren’s education if they are in a group returning to school. As you will see, the risk assessment is comprehensive, bespoke for our two schools and continues our commitment not to put lives at risk.

I thank those of you who have been asked to complete a questionnaire this week and for completing key worker forms. Now you are making your own decisions about what is best for your family. Whatever you decide we will respect and understand your decision.

The new way of working in our schools will initially be alien for us all. The measures we need to put in place seem such a long way off our previous way of working with you and the children; they will take time to adjust to and understand.

I do want to stress to everyone, especially the children, that we are ‘the same’, the teachers and all the support staff are looking forward to seeing you all, and our schools continue to focus on core Christian values - love, respect, wisdom, courage and honesty. Even though the way the schools operate will be different there is continuity and strength.

As you are aware, next week we will all be taking a break from teaching and learning- you included- for half term. There will be no remote learning for the children, but there will be plenty to look forward to after half term, with new learning and school reopening for some.

I hope you all keep well over the next week and look forward to seeing some of you from June 2nd.

Again, many of the children are sharing their work with us and impressing us.

This week’s Star of the Week are:

Logan - For excellent perseverance with all home learning activities and super work on sharing. Grace - For continuing to impress us with her great home learning and super counting.
Ivy - For trying hard with all home learning activities as well as wonderful creative work.

Ellis - for working very hard to improve his maths and spellings

Jemima - for positively responding to editing suggestions
Amelia - for positively responding to editing suggestions
Kiera - for working diligently and consistently every day

Callie for never giving up in her learning.

Isla for resilience and pushing herself to improve her writing.

Eva for her positive forum communication on reading

Ralphie for his continued enthusiasm towards all areas of remote learning 
Emily D for her continued enthusiasm towards all areas of remote learning 

Ted for winning the "keepy uppy" fun football challenge.

Jasmin, Emily and Harriet P for entering and placing in all 5 funky challenges.
Eddie for extending his thinking and responses in all his work.

Lily-Grace, for her effort and progress in maths.

Daisy, for excellent renewed effort and progress this week in all areas.


See how many house-points you are earning on DB Primary. Congratulations!

I hope you all have a good week, 

Take care and keep safe everyone.

Mrs Strickland

I hope you will find the information on these slides interesting, useful and something you can signpost to others.


Archery Gold!

Archery Gold! 1 We took 7 teams to the Yr 3/4 and Yr 5/6 Archery Competition for the Stansted family of schools on Friday 22nd November. The children all really enjoyed the event and their aim improved as the morning progressed, with several bullseyes being scored. Our Yr 5/6 teams narrowly missed out on medals with 2 of the teams coming equal fourth. However, one of our Yr 3/4 teams did really well and brought home gold medals, as well as qualifying for the district competition next term.

Tag Rugby Success!

Tag Rugby Success! 1 On November 6th, we took 2 teams to the Stansted Family Yr 5/6 Tag Rugby Tournament and were blessed with glorious sunshine. The A team played 5 matches, drawing 2 of them and being narrowly beaten in the other 3, to finish 5th overall. The children played well as a team and learnt a lot as the morning progressed. Mr Oliver had given the team coaching points to execute in the game, and it was great to see the children listening and try to put into play the coaching points. The B team had a great morning, being unbeaten in all their matches - only drawing against Howe Green Blue team - so therefore winning the B team tournament. The team was made up of Yr 5 children who won Yr 3/4 tournament last year, so we have high hopes for doing really well in the A team tournament in 2020!

On Tuesday 21st May we were delighted to welcome the Bishop of Chelmsford, Stephen Cottrell, to LHS. He spent time with all the children during Collective Worship where he spoke about his role as a bishop and answered some very challenging questions prepared by our Worship Leaders.

Bishop Stephen's visit

On Friday 10th May we were delighted to welcome Kemi Badenoch, MP for Saffron Walden, to LHS. Mrs Badenoch met with Mrs Strickland and Mrs Dutton, Chair of Governors, before answering a diverse range of questions from children in Years 5 & 6, plus some members of the school council. As a result children were able to increase their understanding of parliamentary democracy as part of their learning about British Values and Diversity.
