Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, regrettably we are unable to invite parents into school for a tour of Berkswich CE primary and nursery. We understand that choosing the right setting for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your child’s learning journey. With this in mind, we hope to provide you with a range of opportunities to allow you to gain an insight into life as part of our special Berkswich community and the chance to ask questions. We certainly welcome the opportunity to support and reassure you as you organise your child’s first steps into Nursery and Reception. We are offering virtual meetings to provide an opportunity for new parents to meet our headteacher, EYFS leader and teaching staff. This will provide a great opportunity for you to ask questions and find out about our community and learning at Berkswich CE. Your child is a vital part of this process, and so we welcome them to join in with the meeting.

Even though most of us aren't at school everyday, we are still important members of our class community. Reaching out to, talking to and keeping up with our class is vital for our own mindset, but also for our friend's mindset.
You might want to choose one fo these activities to do.
Write a letter
Letters don't have to be long! You could write a short postcard, email or card to someone in your class. Tell them a joke, write about a memory or ask questions about how they are. Make sure that if you are leaving your house to post the letter, you are following current social distances guidelines.
Make a phone call
Spending time on the phone to your friends can help you keep in touch. This could be voice or a video call. Make sure that you ask how they are as well as telling them how you are feeling. Always ask the adult first.
Send a video
This is a really fun way of keeping in touch. You could make a video on your own or with the people you are with in the house. Make sure you always say hello. You could do a dance, tell jokes, take them on a tour of your house. Whatever you like!
Draw a picture
Pictures always make people smile, especially if they have been drawn specifically for you. Draw a picture of yourself or of the people in your house or something that makes you smile. You could email or post your picture.
