I hope you and your families are keeping well during these challenging times. To our parents who continue to work on the frontline we send our thanks and recognise the huge contribution you are making to our society.
Our teachers will email some activities and work which pupils can complete at home this week. The pupils will be able to complete some of this work independently, however it will be beneficial to have adult support, feedback and encouragement. It is crucial that pupils continue to read everyday and where possible twice every day.
If school work becomes a source of conflict or anxiety in the home it will result in little learning and there are a myriad of alternative activities that will also be of benefit to our children. I am sure that you have seen many of these online in recent days and they are on our website and Twitter feed. They include
● Learn to tell the time
● Learn to ride a bike
● Learn to tie your shoe laces
● Play the tin whistle
● Bake/Make dinner
● Play boardgames
● Play card games
● Make jigsaws
● Learn to Code (Scratch Jr or Scratch)
● Read books
● Read more books
● Learn to fold clothes
● Plant seeds/Garden
I am aware that a small number of pupils may require access to the school to collect books. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange a mutually suitable time for the collection.
Our teachers are working on introducing distance learning apps that may be useful if the school remains closed past 29th March. In the coming days you will receive an email with instructions on how to download SeeSaw and your child’s access code. See https://web.seesaw.me/parents for more information. We are aware that in many houses there will be more than one child who will require access to a device or houses where broadband may not be adequate. We ask you to do your best with the situation that you find yourself in. Our teachers are on a learning curve too and so we appreciate your patience and understanding.
Please email email@example.com if you have any queries or concerns. Take care, stay at home and stay safe.
