COVID-19 - Pupil Catch Up Part 3

Well we are now into the Summer term and are really interested to see what our pupils are getting up to learning at home as well as enjoying time with the family.

We are calling all of our families every week and usually speak to parents, with a quick hello to the pupils. This week, along with the many other calls, Deputy Jenny Riley chatted to one of our oldest pupils – Adam Ibrahim. Adam is doing well, he is staying at home but would really like to come back to school to see everyone. He is developing his telephone skills, talking to a range of staff each week. Adam leaves Newfield this summer, but is planning on coming back for special events and RRSA meetings.

Claire has been learning all about fishes and sharks using her virtual reality equipment - it looks very fancy and means Claire feels like she is swimming in the sea! She’s also made a tent in her living room.

Zainab and the new baby are enjoying spending time together - she loves all the noises that babies make so is really having fun with her sister using her listening skills to tune into the gurgles, screams and crying - but apparently she loves it all.

Another pupil enjoying the water is Maci, who is relaxing after a hard day by spending time in the hot tub which she absolutely loves!

And Ron has been put to work with household chores, including washing the car - which he seems to love!

I’m missing you all and hope to see you soon.
