An Important Message for Parents and Carers
We’ve all had to adapt to new ways of working, so I wanted to take the opportunity to say what an amazing job you’re doing supporting your child’s wellbeing and learning during this time. It’s definitely been a strange and challenging time, so it’s ok if you and your child feel wobbly and worried at the moment. We’re here for you every step of the way as we figure this all out together.
We miss the children very much, but we must follow the government’s guidance to keep everyone in our community safe. So, we’re carrying on with providing child care only for vulnerable pupils and children of critical workers and providing distance learning for others. Following your feedback we have made some changes to hopefully make this easier and, from today, the following provision is in place:
EYFS (Nursery & Reception)
Please note. All learning activites will be shared via your Tapestry log in.
● Weekly story shared by a teacher with suggested linked follow up activities
● Phonics Challenge
● Maths Challenge
● From time-to-time we may share other links to websites/online activities that may be useful
KS1 and KS2 (Years 1 to 6) Please note. All learning activities will be shared via the website (select the phase/year at the bottom of this front page)
● Weekly English challenge
● Weekly phonics challenge (KS1 only)
● Weekly Maths challenge
● Weekly challenges to cover other aspects of the curriculum:
Make something Monday
Wonderful World Wednesday
(Teachers may share additional activities, links and videos via Dojo particularly in Years 5 and 6 for children that want to complete).
As a school, this is our preferred method of learning and is what the teachers will be focusing on whilst working from home.
Remember, if you have any concerns about helping your child learn or you need any other support from the school, please let us know (see below for ways to contact us).
We can’t say yet when we’ll be able to open the school fully, but rest assured that we’ll continue doing our utmost to keep your child learning and our school community connected.
Let’s get cracking with our summer term!
