Snaith Primary School

Monday 4th May

This week’s Theme is:

VE Day

Although we had previously planned to focus on ‘The Bad-Tempered Ladybird’ we feel it is more pertinent to focus on VE day this week so will move ‘The Bad-Tempered Ladybird to next week.

A special message from my teachers:

Hello everyone,

It was really lovely to talk to so many of you this week and hear about all the amazing things you have been doing.  Lots of you have all been very busy helping your families with baking, gardening, cleaning and creating some fabulous artwork.

It’s great to know that you are all safe and well. Until we meet again, we’re sending you all a great big hug.

Stay safe

Miss Timney, Mr Clarkson and Mrs Selkirk


Dear parents and children

Please see below the exciting tasks set for this week.

While we have posted a suggested order

(we know some people find this helpful)

But please feel free to pick and choose what you want to do and when you want to do it.

Please remember: your child’s well-being is the most important thing to us. You may find that they are more inspired some days than other. Some days they might do no tasks. Other days they may wish to do more than one.

We also appreciate that many of you are likely to be working and juggling child care.

So our message is simple, do what you can and be kind to yourselves too!

We also value cooking, gardening, cleaning and a wealth of other things you will be doing as families.


If your child would like to share what they have been doing with us please email your photos etc to Snaith.primary2020@gmail.com (you can also email any questions or concerns to the teachers on this)

If you have any other concerns please do contact school on 01405 860452 or on Snaith.primary.eastriding.gov.uk
