A message about home learning

Dear Parents and Carers,

I was really hoping that this wouldn't happen to our class but it's a situation that we all know could happen at any time. The good news is that the school has acted quickly and appropriately to ensure that the children are safe. You have all received a letter with guidance, please read this carefully and please make sure that we all follow the appropriate advice as we all want to be back in school together as soon as possible.

I feel extremely upset at this moment, as we were just getting back to normal and the children have worked so hard since the being of this term are were all enjoying being class again.

For me personally it has been an absolute joy teaching your children and I will ensure that they have high quality online learning everyday that would have been taught within the classroom. I will be posting work on this site everyday for the children to complete. This work will come with supporting videos and photos that will help and support, not only them, but you, to understand and support them to complete it. I would like the children to work independently as much as possible, but they will need support as the concepts and learning will be new to them. This is where the videos will help them understand and help you support them.

I would appreciate that all the children complete their daily tasks and then take photos of their completed work so I can see it and approve it. Please add their work to their portfolio's on Dojo. Every lesson will have a marking video the day after, these videos will allow the children to mark their work and make any corrections. These videos will help explain any mistakes or misconceptions that the children may have.

I will be posting the daily tasks throughout the morning and expect all of them to be completed with photos of the finished work.

We have worked extremely hard this term to get the children back on track and these 2 weeks are vital that they continue to progress and learn. This is our responsibility to ensure that our children keep to a school routine and keep learning through this difficult time and not treat this as a holiday, we need to keep learning. I am very grateful for all of your support in keeping the children engaged and focused through the next 2 weeks.

If you have any questions regarding work please message me on this site. However, if you have any questions regarding school please contact the school office.

Thank you for all your support,

Mrs Taylor
