A day in the life of Miss Mcfarlane
Dear families of Preston Park
It feels very strange to be writing to you all. Our morning greetings and goodbyes at the school gate now feels like a luxury as we come to terms with the fact that we cannot currently share our school space like we once did.
The school community has been working very hard to delivery lessons and news to you. We hope you like our new website and ask that you have a read. You might just find something useful!
I hope that you and your families are safe and well. I know many of you are eager to get back to school. I am also very keen to welcome you all back. I have, like many of you, been watching the daily briefings hoping to hear news of when life will begin to go back to normal. With no updates yet I have been trying to keep busy.
Many of you will know I recently returned to Preston Park from maternity leave. My son’s nursery has closed, so like many families across the country we have been juggling working from home and keeping a very energetic one year old active and out of mischief! We have been redesigning delivery boxes as toys, reading to his soft toys and making the most of the sunshine in the garden. How have you been spending your time?
I wish you all the very best during this challenging time. My hope is that we will all come through this having learnt something valuable. I wish you all the best managing your way through what has become our new way of life. It has its challenges so please remember school may be closed, but we at Preston Park are still here for our families.
A day in the life of Miss Rushe
Dear Children of Year 3,
I hope you are all well and keeping safe during this time. It’s been a very strange time and adapting to our new way of life has been a challenge as I am missing all my family, friends and all the children at Preston Park a lot but I am enjoying catching up with you during our daily phone calls. I am however very lucky to be living with one of my best friends and we have been trying to do exciting things to keep us entertained.
We have been doing a lot of exercise to keep mentally and physically healthy and try to do PE with Joe Wicks every morning as it’s a great way to start the day. I have seen from some of your pictures that you have been enjoying it too. Also, one of my friends Matt has created an exercise group where a group of my friends get together over video call to exercise together. It keeps us motivated and it’s a nice way to catch up daily with our friends who I am missing greatly. We’ve also been training for The Liverpool Half Marathon which was originally meant to be in May, but they have put it back to October, so have been trying to continue with my running.
As like many of you, I love to socialise with my friends so I have been missing this a lot. I’ve been keeping in contact with friends and family as much as possible to check on their wellbeing and see what they have been up to. Every Saturday night my friend Pete hosts a quiz with all our friends and I’ve been speaking to my godchildren Maisie and Riley over the phone who have grown up so much since I saw them last. We are making lots of plans for when lockdown ends and it’s safe to socialise again.
I’m very lucky to have a little garden and I’ve been spending some time when the weather's been nice sunbathing and trying to catch a real tan. I have also been making my New Zealand scrapbook from when I went travelling as I’ve been meaning to do it for quite a while now, but have never had the time, so it’s been nice to be able to do it.
Please keep sending in all your fabulous work and pictures of what you have been up to. I am so proud of each one of you for working so hard at home. I hope you have been keeping fit and healthy and spending a lot of quality time with your families. I can’t wait to see your smiley faces back at school!
Lots of love,
