Care and Support Helps Everyone Succeed
Home Learning - 1st June onwards
First of all we would all like to say a massive thank you to everyone for their continued efforts in supporting their children with home learning during school closure. We have really enjoyed keeping in touch via the website and loved seeing all of the activities that children have been completing. We felt it very important to make sure children had enough to keep their brains active and practise their basic skills whilst supporting families during a very tricky time by not adding the pressure of deadlines. We know that family life and home learning will have looked very different in every household as everyone faced the new challenges that lockdown brought and we know that you'll all have done your best. It doesn't matter how much you have completed so please don't worry.
We have welcomed back children from Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 and hope to be allowed to open up to more year groups before the end of term. Children with two key worker parents will continue to be in school as required.
Clearly, this means that class teachers are back in school, looking after and teaching groups of children, every day of the week and no longer mostly working from home. This means that we need to make some changes to how the website will be used to support children when they are learning at home - whether they're in year groups who have returned part-time or in year groups not yet back at all. We also know there will be some children who will continue to remain at home until the summer holidays and we want to support them too.
As you know, our children are always at the heart of every decision we make, but we also take staff wellbeing very seriously too. Therefore, to keep workload manageable and to ensure teachers are able to make the time at school, for those children who are in, safe and happy we will have a new system starting Tuesday 2nd June.
If you have any questions about what your child should be doing for home learning, please contact your child's class teacher or Mrs Eeley.
Many thanks for your continued support; we are really excited to see those we can soon.
