A lovely thank-you from one of our parents
I would like to mention how appreciative we are, for the support from the school with our child during this difficult time, as we continue to work. They are so happy at the school, every day they have a new adventure and they are absolutely thriving. Their learning and reading are both amazing due to all of your hard work and we are thankful to all of the staff for this. Our child is very lucky!
Home Learning Offer
We are currently following the guidance of providing up to 3 hours of home learning for key stage 1 and up to 4 hours of work for key stage 2. We are using Google Classroom as our sharing platform. Each day the children will have English, Maths and one other lesson. In addition there are homework activities on class pages and links to useful websites. The afternoon lessons will be a variety of foundation subjects and will be as close in knowledge as possible to what we would have been teaching in school. We are providing links and activities to promote wellbeing of our children weekly and PE sessions.
Each teacher meets their class live every morning to talk through the days learning ahead and we offer other times when children can speak to their teacher live for support.
As advised we are keeping logs of participation and engagement weekly. Any children who are not attending regularly will receive a phone call to see how we can help further.
Our Blended Learning Offer
If children are too ill to be in school apart from a bit of reading if possible they are not expected to learn at home.
If children are waiting for tests so therefore are off school for a few days they need to head to our class pages where there is a range of learning opportunities.
If an individual child is off for 14 days self isolating the class teacher will set work for the child via email from the school office based on in school work.
If the whole class are off the class teacher will provide daily home learning via Google Classroom - including videos and work so children can learn remotely.
