We understand that there will be children with virus symptoms in the coming weeks which may require them to be in isolation and, therefore, absent for two weeks (under new advice). We also know that parents/carers are conscious of the time being missed from school, especially when the children’s own symptoms can be minor. To support parents/carers we have attached some websites so that children can practise and rehearse aspects of learning previously taught.
Clearly other curriculum areas are equally important, and you may decide to do some drawing, colouring in, painting, cooking and exercise too. Taking time to read together and play board games could also be a way of alleviating boredom and having fun as a family.
We are currently preparing for the possibility that the Government may close schools at some stage. We therefore want to ensure that our children’s learning is supported during this period. In the likelihood that school does close, we have prepared a list of a number of useful educational websites and online resources. We will communicate with parents and carers through the school website, Facebook and the text messaging service. If you are having any difficulties or need support with this, get in touch with us as soon as possible. Please also let us know if your child will not be able to access any learning online.
Your child will soon be bringing home a reminder of their various login details for Purple Mash, Timestable Rockstars ,Oxford Reading Buddy and Accelerated Reader accounts and these will be the main platforms for home learning.
We are regularly updating the school website, so it is advisable that you check for daily updates.
Please know that all of our staff are committed to making sure that learning continues, and children have interesting, fun tasks to keep them engaged and happy. On behalf of the staff and governors, I would like to say how much we appreciate your help and understanding at this challenging time. We all need to rally round and support each other through this difficult time.
Mrs J.M. Goodfellow
