*Update* Letters to the Lonely  *Update*

Today I went to Teal Beck House Care Home in Otley with a package of your lovely letters. Thank you and well done to all of the children who took the time to write such thoughtful, interesting letters. I'm sure the residents there will enjoy reading them as much as I did. The staff there were very grateful and wanted to say a big 'thank you' so a big well done to:

Ellie S, Thomas, Michael, Nicholas, Ellie W, Joe, Molly, Olivia, Millie, Alfie and Sol - you've made me very proud.

Your wonderful letters are attached below.

Letters to the Lonely 

I’ve been in touch with Teal Beck House, a residential care home in Otley for elderly people, many of whom have disabilities. The staff there were delighted when I told them about your letters and explained that the residents cannot use the communal areas there at the moment so receiving letters to their rooms would really cheer them up. 

I’d love to deliver your letters to Teal Beck House as soon as I can so please can you send me your letter in one of these ways:

 a)      Send it (in an envelope) through the post. Please address it as follows:

Mrs Foley

The Whartons Primary School

The Whartons



LS21 2BS

 b)      If you can get a really clear image, then take a photograph or scan your letter and email to . I can then print them out. Please put ‘for Mrs Foley’ in the subject box so I receive them. 

I did speak to Mrs Dickson about you delivering them to school but she was concerned about you all arriving at the same time or being stopped for being out unnecessarily!

 Also, in case you are worried - the virus can only live on paper/cardboard for 24 hours so I will keep the letters in an envelope for a few days before delivering them to make sure the elderly people are safe.

 I can’t wait to start receiving your letters – I think they will cheer me up too as I’m missing seeing you all and hearing your news! 

Any questions, please contact school. 

Mrs F :) 

Hi everyone! 

We hope you are all well and enjoying this lovely weather whilst also keeping up with as much of the home learning that you are able to do! 

 Mrs Dickson will be sending out details of how to join Google Classroom next week. We’ve already created a Red Kites page and left a message for you all on there. When she sends you the code, you’ll be able to read it, access the Easter homework task and following that, there will be weekly work and resources for the next half term.

 Don’t forget to send in photographs of your home learning and what you have been up to (email them to so that we can add them to the new ‘Home Learning’ section on the school website. 

Hello and welcome to Year 6. We have a busy year ahead which will hopefully be fun and challenging for the pupils. All Y6 pupils now have their planners and these are an excellent way to communicate between home and school.
Thank you,
