Keeping in Touch

Dear Ethelberters,


As the Easter Holidays begin, the staff and I would like to thank you for all the lovely messages of support and gratitude you have sent in, the fantastic updates on home learning and the brilliant videos and photographs. You have all done an amazing job working alongside the teachers to educate our Ethelbert children!  


We feel that over Easter it is very important that the children have a break and there is a clearly defined difference between the School Term Time and the Holiday Time. With this in mind we will not be uploading any more work until Term 5 begins. We would however like to encourage you all to continue with reading over this break, so we have devised an Easter Reading Challenge for you to do. Information can be found on the Class Pages.


All of the educational games can still be found in the Class Pages, so if you did want to do some work during this break you can still access these fun activities. Mrs Fulton is running a gymnastics competition you may choose to do and Mr Atkins is looking into setting up a TT Rock Star battle with Ospringe School! When Term Time resumes the teachers will be updating the weekly home learning for you all again.  


The staff and I would like to wish you and your family a healthy and happy Easter and look forward to working with you in Term 5. I am on call during the Easter Holidays so if you need anything please just email, or in an emergency phone the emergency number.


Take care, stay safe and remember 'Together We Thrive'.

Love and best wishes,

Michele Kirkbride

Year 1’s Mini Marathon

Still image for this video
Some of the year 1 children did a collective mini marathon after their parents did a collective full marathon on Sunday. They went one by one, kept in touch via video and tagged each other (via Whats App). The children were an inspiration, showing it’s possible to work together, even though they are apart. Well done everyone!

Our Ethelbert Road Spirit

We woke up yesterday to the news our school would be closing. In true Ethelbert Road spirit the choir came to school that morning at 8am and sung their hearts out. It lifted our spirits, made us cry with pride and helped us realise things would be okay. We are a family, a family that cares about each other and will support each other during these difficult times. Together we thrive!
