Hello children and parents of PAWS, we hope that you are all okay and staying safe. We miss seeing you at Breakfast club and After school club everyday.
We thought we would show you what some of our staff in PAWS have been up to.
Mrs Bell painted her girl shed in her garden when we had all of that lovely sunshine, she has done baking- making some wonderful cookies and biscuits and painted a beautiful rainbow to show support for all of the NHS and key worker staff.
Miss Atkins has been going walking for her daily exercise and had a walk around the Arboretum. Miss Atkins has been doing some healthy cooking for her and her Mom. For VE day Miss Atkins made a cake. Doesn’t that look delicious?
Miss Appleby celebrated her sisters special birthday, she has been doing video chats with her brother and sister to keep in touch and to see if they are okay and keeping safe. Miss Appleby has spent some time in the sunshine with her Mom, relaxing and doing gardening, she has done some reading. What do you think she should read next? Miss Appleby is missing all of the children in PAWS, and hopes you are all keeping safe and she cannot wait to see you all again very soon.
Mrs Ross has been very busy when she hasn’t been in school, baking different types of bread. They look delicious! Mrs Ross has also been busy decorating her house. Mrs Ross is missing seeing all of the smiling faces she sees when she is in PAWS.

They have been going for nice long walks, then Harley has been having a rest in the sunshine. She celebrated his 6th birthday! They had a little dog party for him. Do you have any pets? Have you been going for walks with them?
Mrs Murcott has been visiting her grandchildren by talking to them through their windows. She has also recorded some bedtime stories for them and sent them via WhatsApp. Another activity has been lots of gardening and sewing some scrub bags for the NHS. Mrs Murcott misses you all very much and can’t wit to see you all again!
With the afternoons slightly lighter and a tiny taste of Spring sunshine, we ventured outside to play while waiting for dinner. Bats and balls, and sand play are some of our favourite activities. It’s fun to get active outdoors, so we made the most of our time before Winter returns; Storm Ciara is forecast for the weekend and maybe some snow next week!
Over the past few weeks the children have been starting to get ready for Christmas. They have been so creative and have made some lovely pictures for our display boards, colouring, cutting and sticking.
The children have also been enjoying building with the Lego and playing in the home corner.
All of the staff at PAWS would like to welcome the children back after their short break. We hope all of the children have a brilliant half term.
During their first week back, the children have been playing lovely with each other, making amazing creations with the Lego, reading stories, playing in the home corner and designing some wonderful poppies for the display board.
