Head of School update - 26/11/21
Dear Parents and Carers,
This week, the children in year 2 have experienced the awe and wonder of bringing history to life! They have travelled back in time to the year 1666 and immersed themselves into understanding how and why the fire started and what impact this historic event had on London. You can see from my headline photos that the children dressed up in costumes from the time period, re-enacted the fire spreading and learnt to write with quills. It was a memorable experience for them all and the excitement in the classroom and buzz of learning was magical. The children have discovered how to questions historical sources and how we know about the past. Being a historian is a fascinating job!
This afternoon, you will have received two letters – one from East Sussex County Council and one from Mr. McCarthy, CEO for Aurora Academies Trust. The letters outline the current picture surrounding Covid-19 cases in East Sussex and that this has led to a decision that all Aurora schools will not be holding this year’s festive events with parents and carers. I appreciate that this will be disappointing for parents, however, as a school we will do all that we can to ensure that we are able to bring these festive performances to you, somehow, and we will update you with our plans for how we will do this, next week.
Please take the time to read both of these letters.
The weather is certainly changing. Despite some pleasant sunshine across this week, this is very deceptive and the temperature is dropping. Please can I remind all parents to ensure that their child has a suitable coat for these colder conditions.
As always, thank you for your understanding and support.
Have a great weekend
My very best wishes
