Dear Parents and Carers,
This week has been a whirlwind of change again - at school and I am sure, at home. It is a tricky time for all as we enter into this next half term of full school closure, learning at home and support for childcare and vulnerable children. As you can imagine, there is a lot to do and we are busy working through our lists of jobs and preparations.
One of the important differences this time is that we have been through this before and have learnt lessons from the last time. There are also greater expectations put on school for what we provide for our children who are learning at home and in childcare.
So we have reviewed our home learning offer from last year and developed it further. The key changes are as follows:
Please find the full offer attached below.
As children will be spending more time on devices, especially older children, we will be sending out some guidance to parents tomorrow. Too much time on phones and social media must be avoided at all costs, for many reasons, including the safety of your children. Please see the letter that will come out about this tomorrow.
We are also mulling over ideas for an art project...Mr Shankland will be in touch with more information on how to get involved soon :-)
Last of all, we understand that you will all be in varying circumstances at home and that supporting home learning may be tricky. Over the weeks we will do everything we can to support you with this. We know that you will try your best.
Please take care and stay safe. If we all do the right thing, hopefully we will alll (including our families and friends) remain safe.
We look forward to seeing you and your children soon - please pass on that Mrs Murray says a BIG HELLO!
