Our Wonderful kids

To all our wonderful kids

Hope you are all getting on well and helping to mind each other at home.

Its every strange time at the moment and you might have some worries but the most important thing you can do at the moment is stay calm, stay positive and keep your mind and body healthy. Remember to do activities that make your mind and body feel all those lovely positive emotions like happiness, pride, love,kindness, friendship , excitement and achievement ( for example exercise, reading a book, drawing and creating, playing games, helping out at home and having a chat with someone you care about.

It’s so important to take care of yourself and your family at this time. You are all such wonderful kids and you make Rutland such a fabulous school I can only imagine how helpful and kind you are all being at home .

We are thinking of you all and your families

Pancake Tuesday!

4th class (with some visitors from 1st) had a great Pancake Tuesday 😍 We learned the other name for Pancake/Shrove Tuesday and we also discovered the reasons why pancakes are eaten on the day before Lent begins. We discussed what promises we might make for Lent and of course had some tasty pancakes!!5F72E922-A28F-416F-AD30-AEF1B60D43AC 3ACEF3DF-75B8-4584-9A1F-25BFD4ED0463 977D5EA4-D8E0-4700-9301-04110DCA1107 6ABB2775-4B2E-4228-9890-6BD04477027A A1B65798-2943-4265-B8B8-B0193CE06F46 1432D3B9-6DB5-4931-8350-3C90F9598688
