School Updates Summer Term 2020
Dear children and families,
I hope you had an enjoyable Easter, staying at home together? We are now into an altered version of our summer term and while we fully acknowledge that parents are not being asked to be teachers, we do understand this and appreciate all the support you are giving your children with their studies. Your child will now be expected to spend part of their day studying - this can be in a manageable block or in shorter periods of time.
The Government expects children to learn remotely, via apps, websites and distance learning sites, so we have attached an overview planning grid to this email that you, or other adults/teenagers at home, can follow and support your child. We are grateful for you continuing with daily reading and giving your child guidance and access to the school apps that we have set up for their learning.
First and foremost, your child's class teacher will communicate with your child via Seesaw (Pre-school, Classes 2,3,4,5) and Tapestry (Class1). Please ensure you support your child to use these apps. Your child's teacher is also able to see when they work on activities such as Doodle, Times Tables Rock Stars, Mangahigh etc. Your child also has an exercise book for recording any of their studies and projects too.
Attached to this email is a one-sided plan that will cover the next two weeks of learning time at home for all year groups. Any key worker's children attending school during this time will also follow this plan, so the children have similar experiences.
If you have any questions regarding your child's learning over the next couple of weeks don't forget to email the following addresses for your child's teacher:
If you a key worker and need to place your child in school, then book them in via the google on-line booking form on the school website (Latest News).
I will also send out a separate email to parents of some younger learners, as well, which details some further learning support.
With best wishes,
Mrs Knight and team x
