A message of thanks to the parents...
A message from the team...
To our lovely Parents and Children,
Thank you for giving the online learning a go; we know how hard this can be from both sides…
Some days we feel like we can do everything on our to-do list and we feel on top of the world, but we also know that there are some days where things just feel really hard. Keeping good mental and physical health is the most important thing of all. We are all trying our best, so keep doing things that make you happy and don’t put too much pressure on yourselves.
The last thing we want any of you to do is stress about schoolwork. When the time comes that we can all learn together again, teachers will be there. All we ask is that you try your best to complete some of the online learning tasks each week. Please just let us know if there is anything that we can do to help out.
Keep well and safe.
With love from The Baslow St. Anne’s Team XX

Design a Den Competition
Peak Architects have teamed up with some like minded professionals to launch a ‘Design-a-Den’ challenge specifically aimed at Children aged 4-11. They say: 'One of the prizes (not yet announced) would be that some of the architects would visit the class of the winner and hold a design workshop based upon designing a space (we normally suggest the classroom itself or their bedroom)…we talk around the elements of design and encourage lots of drawing and model making'.
Please see the links below if you fancy having a go at the design competition - great for you budding architects , artists and designers.
