A Message from Headteacher Adam Rivett Since the last issue of Littleport Life, we have welcomed back the whole school from a national lockdown and the classrooms are once again alive with learning! A balloon arch full of rainbow colours welcomed families back and certainly helped to put a smile on the faces of some anxious families. Talking of smiles on faces, we also celebrated Red Nose Day and the theme of ‘superheroes’ gave us…

when I wrote my last contribution to the Littleport Life, we were in a national lockdown and I was hopeful that schools would re-open just before Easter. As I write this at the end of April, schools did indeed fully re-open to all children on March 8th, the national vaccination programme is proving to be something that as a nation we can be proud of, milestones on the Prime Minister’s road map seem to be…

I am writing this article at the very end of January and you will be reading it when it comes through your letter boxes sometime around Easter- I am looking forward to things being different at Easter compared with how they are now and it’s important that we remain hopeful. As I write this we are in a national lockdown and schools are ‘closed’ – but I think the definition of ‘closed’ must have changed….

I have just been saying to my ever patient and loving partner, as she stood beside me, asking what I was up to, that this will be the fourth article I’ve written for Littleport Life for which the phrase ‘lockdown learning’ could apply. I sincerely hope that we will be out of this soon, but, as I write this, in the throes of a cold and miserably wet January day, none of us know, as…

As I write this, school has been fully open since the start of this academic year which, after lockdown followed by the summer holidays is great- a long time coming! Understandably, prior to the new school year starting, there was a lot of concern about the impact of the lockdown on children- progress in their learning and in relation to their mental health. I can honestly say, the children have been fantastic! They have adjusted…

With the classrooms back at full capacity, the school environment now feels very much like it did at Littleport Community Primary School at this same point in 2019. The biggest differences are the safety routines we have in place to combat the spread of COVID-19. At the time of writing this, we have had children back in classrooms on a full time basis for 6 weeks and the school is full of smiles on the…

LECA – Update from Principal Scott Gaskins

LECA – Update from Principal Scott Gaskins

The academic year 2019/2020 will go down as the strangest in educational history. We started the year with such high hopes for Year 9, pushing on to choosing Options and then finishing the year ready to start their GCSEs. Then, on March 20th, we closed our doors and online/home learning started, and then slowly it became clear that we would not re-open until September; we wouldn’t see the majority of our students for six months!…

Learning Matters… “Feed a Brain Today!”

Learning Matters… “Feed a Brain Today!”

I don’t know if any of you remember the Sure Start programme? It was a government funded initiative targeted at children under the age of four, living in the most disadvantaged areas. The aim of the programme was to provide a host of joined up services to support families, as well as to provide a high-quality educational setting which children under the age of four could attend. These settings were aimed at being cognitively enabling…

As I write this piece, the school year has finished and staff are on the last of their two professional days before their summer break begins. I have just taken a moment to read back through the last edition of the Littleport Life and I see Rev’d Howard opened his article with the hope that by the time we are reading it, the lockdown will have ended…well ‘ended’ it hasn’t, but things are different now….

“No, I’m sorry but you can’t take books out of the library” and “remember to keep 2 metres apart” are two phrases no teacher used on a regular basis before March 2020 but they have certainly been uttered by many teachers up and down the country since. ‘New norms’ is another expression I am sure many of us have used in recent times too and at Littleport Community Primary School we are well underway with…
