If you’ve been wondering what’s happening at our local schools during the Coronavirus shut-down, we asked the team at Corsham Regis Primary Academy about the activities that they’re enjoying.

“Each day the children have been set a reading, writing, mathematics and topic task,” explained headteacher Gareth Spicer. “The work which the children have produced and the feedback which we have had from parents and carers has been fantastic. The children attending school have completed similar learning with the help of our caped crusaders TEAM PINK!”

Mr Spicer, who broadcast his first online celebration assembly this week, explained that some of the staff wanted to dress up as heroes to build camaraderie and keep spirits up during this testing time. He explained that the staff have really embraced TEAM PINK, wearing a pink cape and mask, adding that’s it helped everyone to keep smiling.  

“One of our curriculum drivers at Corsham Regis is community,” added Mr Spicer. “We have always been proud to serve our families living in the Corsham area and, in some cases, further beyond.

“I firmly believe that although the on-going COVID-19 situation has isolated us physically, it has undoubtedly brought us closer together as a community. Our teachers have been amazing in posting daily home learning activities onto the online learning platform Seesaw and our school  website, as well as educating the children of key workers in school on a rota basis.”
