Friday 22nd May

School Closure
School buildings will be closed until further notice. Children of key workers who are
unable to provide childcare at home are able to register their child to attend the cluster
hub school based in Welshpool. Preschool children can also be registered to attend
Footsteps in Welshpool.
To register, please visit https://en.powys.gov.uk/emergencyhubs

Thank you Seth K and Isobel for sharing your rainbows.

Continuity of Education
At the end of this half term I would like to thank all parents who have supported their child to continue their learning over the last 9 weeks. Our approach to distance learning has evolved during this challenging time to develop tasks that are both engaging and
enjoyable for pupils. Hopefully, most of the initial technical issues are now resolved.
We would like to know your views on how distance learning is working and what further
changes we need to make through the coming weeks. You should have received a link to a questionnaire. If you have more than 1 child in school, please complete a separate
response for each to give us a fuller picture across the school.
There will be no tasks set for pupils next week as it is half term.

I would also like to thank all teachers and LSAs who have worked tirelessly to develop,
present, monitor and evaluate the work your child completes whilst also working shifts at the childcare hub in Welshpool, upskilling themselves and maintaining a balance within their own families, supporting their own children. Diolch yn fawr i chi.

School Website
Any information/advice sent out with school newsletters is also available on this website under /useful-links-for-parents/

School Reports
School reports will be sent by email during half term week. If you wish to comment on
any aspect of your child’s report, please email the school office where your response will be forwarded to your child’s teacher.

Discussing the pandemic with your child 
Sent alongside this newsletter is the presentation, Good Days in Unusual Times. This is
a social story from the Anna Freud website to help parents/carers explain what is
happening with their child. We hope you find this helpful.

Lexia 
Well done to Kaydon, Jodie, Amelia, Sam and Isobel for completing a level on Lexia. Da
iawn. Two j2stars have been awarded to each of you.

All the staff at Forden School miss all the pupils and hope you stay safe and well.
