Letter to children & parents

Dear children

We hope that you are well and we really miss you! Life is different for everyone at the moment and it’s not easy staying inside at home all the time but it is the right thing to do to help to keep everyone safe. This situation is not going to last forever and we are looking forward to seeing you soon. We just wanted to remind you about a few things…

The adults that are looking after you need your help! This is what you need to do:

  • Be polite, behave and be kind.
  • Be helpful – tidy up, lay the table…
  • Try and do things by yourself e.g. have a go at the activities that your teacher is suggesting… do a puzzle if your mum/dad are trying to work - your parents need to get on with their work too… keep your bedroom tidy!
  • Remember to let your teacher know what you have been doing by sharing the work that you have completed on Purple Mash.

Who has made a cake? Who has played football in the garden? Who has played a board game?

 

Anyway, we will be in touch very soon!

 

As Mr Hobbs says…

Stay safe and have fun!

From all the teachers J

 

 

Dear parent

We hope you are well. We are going to say the same thing to you again, the health and well-being of your family is the number one priority in every house at present; schoolwork comes second. We appreciate that you have not chosen to teach your child at home and we aim to provide you with home learning opportunities. Everything we set is optional. Some days your child will manage all the tasks – some days they won’t. We are not aiming to give you any added pressure. If your child does complete work, then please encourage them to share what they have achieved with their class teacher through Purple Mash. Teachers will not be able to mark work as they usually would, but we hope that a ‘well done’ will help children to see that their efforts are being acknowledged and that there is a purpose to completing it.

Every day, we will continue to set some work for you to do…

  • Reading
  • Spelling and number bonds/times table practice
  • An English task
  • A maths activity
  • Another activity

There will also be a daily picture and a ‘thunk’ of the day on the home learning page in case websites fail, or if children want something else to do.

From today, we are also going to set a whole school project which will be changed every two weeks. The first is called ‘Family’ and there are different activities for EYFS, Yr 1 and Yr 2, Yr 3 and Yr 4 and Yr 5 and Yr 6. It doesn’t matter if brothers and sisters work on the same activities together or if children want to work on easier or more challenging tasks.

We will display the work for the day on the main class page. On the class page there will also be 3 folders which will look like these:

French

 

Should children keep the work they are completing?

This is up to you. It may be a good idea to put it in a box and when we all return to school the work could be displayed, but again, please do not feel any pressure to do this. Some children will be working on paper, others will have made folders and some will have notebooks at home that they are enjoying writing in. Do what works best for you and your family!

Stay safe! From all the teaching staff
