Summer Term – Home Learning

Dear Parents and Carers,

As I write this, the situation regarding Covid-19 seems to be ever changing. I don’t think we ever imagined we would begin our summer term with the children learning at home. It goes without saying that we are all missing the children terribly – seeing your photographs and hearing what you are getting up to at home always brings a smile to our faces.

My priority remains the safety and well-being of our school community and I want to ensure that we all remain in contact and that you feel you can reach out for help if you need it. Our twitter page and facebook page are very active and share ideas for learning as well as resources and pictures.

Our newsletter will also be updated weekly by staff and can be found here. I will also put that out on facebook / twitter when updated – and feel free to send photographs or ideas to school to be included.

With regards to home learning letters from your class teacher have been sent out via email and can be found on the website. These detail contact, learning expectations and sites you can go to for further resources and ideas.

Following a routine with your children, and keeping key skills up such as reading, writing , counting and conversation should be the priority. Of course, if you wish to explore the topics the school have planned then the planning and resources are all online too. But please focus on what you and your family need at this time. The Covid-19 web page has a special section for well-being and if you are beginning to feel overwhelmed please do get in touch.

Our aim is to be here if you need us. Class 3 and Class 4 children can contact teachers if need be via Google Classroom – and weekly ideas and tasks are on there if they need them. Please take a look at google classroom if your children are in Key Stage 2 – it is a fantastic resource. If you are struggling with access to the internet or with devices let me know.

As ever, stay safe and please do get in touch with your class teacher if you would like more resources, or have any questions.
