Good Morning Parents/Carers,
Hopefully this message finds you all safe and well at home.
With regard to work set by teachers; week 1 and 2 of school closure- teachers will set ‘project’ themed learning tasks and will direct you to lots of useful sites.
Week 3 onwards- each class page will be updated with more specific learning and an outline of how you may wish to conduct your home-schooling day in line with normal class practice to keep routine. There will be online tutorials for aspects of maths bearing in mind that the Inspire maths scheme works differently to methods we, as parents, may not be familiar with.
There will still be directions to useful online learning if needed.
How we will go about marking/feeding back on your child’s work is yet to be confirmed but I strongly urge you to bear with us as we find our feet.
I appreciate that this is such a stressful time for everyone. This pandemic affects all of us in some way shape or form and whilst we may not have the home-school learning system perfected as quickly as we’d all like, our staff are continuing to put our children first, primarily to enable keyworkers and frontline NHS staff to go out into the unknown and fight this global battle.
If you have any queries with regard to home-school learning in the run up to week 3, please email me rather than individual staff as they are working tirelessly to keep school open alongside Mrs Rogerson.
Many thanks in anticipation of your continued understanding and support.
