Home Learning information 24/02/2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope the return to home learning after the Easter break has gone smoothly. Teachers will be continuing to update their class pages each week. These can be found on our Website. Click on ‘Our School’ at the top of the page and then on ‘Class Pages’ from the drop down menu. Added below the class pages on the website are videos of singing activities provided by Mr Campbell the VAT music specialist. These videos can be watched on our website, however they are uploaded from You Tube so please be aware that You tube can be accessed through the video.  If children click on the You Tube icon they will be able to access  all the content hosted on YouTube therefore we recommend that they are supervised when watching the videos.

Over the Easter break a number of additional resources have been made available for home learning during the Lockdown. Parents/Carers may like to access the following with their children. From next week teachers may be using some of these as part of the class home learning activities.

Advice from the DfE about home learning, including keeping safe on the Internet: https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/

Teachers will continue to call home to speak to you and the children as a way of keeping in touch and to support home learning. If you have any queries about your child’s learning in between phone calls teachers can be contacted via their class email address which is on the learning pages for each class. We understand that managing learning for several children, alongside the challenge for some parents of working at home is very hard, especially as the length of time in lockdown continues. Please contact the office email if you would like any support from our Home School Link Workers.

 

Best wishes for a peaceful weekend.
