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.

Getting to know each other again
It's be a while since many of us have seen each other. We found it really important o have fun together and to get to know each other again with games like 'Stand up, Sit down' and 'Find someone who...'
Luckily, we've been together so long, it hasn't taken much to remind us!
Playing together again
It's been a while since we've played together and, in order to remind ourselves of being respectful when playing, we created playground games which were based on teamwork, respect and kindness.
Voting in our School Council
This year, we democratically voted in Codie and Eva as our school council representatives.
Their job is represent our opinions to the staff and wider Berkswich community.
Creating an awareness of mindfulness and of wellbeing
Ensuring that we understand how to recognise our wellbeing has been really important when returning in the autumn term. With the ever-changing restrictions, we need to ensure that we have a calm mind and know how to deal with anxieties. One way we have been learning about is through breathing techniques.
Whilst we worked from home:
During our morning Teams meeting, we discussed our well-being whilst being in self-isolations. With Father Graham, Mrs Johnston and Mrs Wilkinson, we discussed ways to keep ourselves healthy.
