It's that time of year when cold and snow might disrupt school so we decided to put plans in place last week. The key thing is to let parents get to work if at all possible while ensuring that disruption to learning is kept to a minimum. Our approach is that the school always remains open and as many as can make the journey safely come and join us. Meanwhile, teachers put the work for their lessons on the school intranet so that those forced to remain at home can keep up to date.
This morning the temperature dropped to -5 celsius. School is carrying on as normal but Rochester does look absolutely beautiful as the photos demonstrate. One of the castle at 7.30am and another of the Paddock after the Nursery class nativity play. It certainly adds to the excitement among the pupils.
