Mr Bolderow’s Blog Week 2

Dear Parents,

I hope that this letter finds you safe and well.  The virus continues to impact members of our community and, as ever, please do let us know if you have been affected as we are here to support in any way we can.

Last night’s press conference gave some hope that the situation will become more relaxed and that elements of everyday life will start to resume although it is going to be a slow process.  The lack of certainty is, I know, challenging for the boys – my five year old says at some point every day, “I just want to go to school” and no matter how successful our remote learning is, I understand that your sons will be missing the social interaction that is such a valuable part of normal school life.  The staff are feeling the same – as one teacher said to me yesterday “teaching is a personal business” and they miss the lighter side of teaching boys that comes when you are all in a classroom working together on a task – the side of teaching that can get lost on Teams.

My assembly today ( draws on some advice from Classical philosophy and I hope that it will give the boys a different perspective.  I am also pleased that it will feel a little bit more like a normal assembly as it will include a piece played on the guitar by Thomas Keeley in Year 7 and I know Mr Martin is drumming up more performances by the boys for future assemblies.

I hope that your sons have made good use of the time today to visit some of the locations on the virtual Field Day.  Whilst routine is key, we felt the opportunity to pursue one of their interests or investigate a new one, was important as was the chance to have a break from the normal timetable after two weeks’ work online.  I am really looking forward to reading some of their accounts and finding out what they learnt.

I hope you all continue to stay safe and well,

With best wishes, Seth
