February 2021 Lockdown 3
REMEMBER TO SIGN ON TO OUR ONLINE SESSIONS AFTER HALF TERM. WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ALL AGAIN ON MONDAY 22ND FEBRUARY UP AND READY TO LEARN!
Thank you for your patience as we all get used to another new way of working.
Remember to check in every morning to the live sessions. You can see what time your child’s session starts and find the links to join the session on your child’s class page. The class page will also show you what work your child should complete each day and where to find it. At the end of the “remote” school day your child will check in again for a live end of the day story and catch up. Children who are in school at the moment will also sign in and join the same sessions.
Please support us by making sure your child is up and ready to learn at the right time every morning and that they work through their jobs each morning.
The letter below will tell you all you need to know about signing on to the live sessions and what time your child’s session will begin.
Please read the information below about remote education (or learning at home).
If you are a critical worker you will be offered a school place for your children on the days you are at work. If you think you may be on the critical worker list and need a school place please contact the school office. Places are limited but we are doing our best to support you. You may also hear directly from Sam, our child and family support worker, about school places.
Please carry on wearing a face covering if you bring your child to school and make sure you social distance. The new Covid strain spreads much more quickly and we want to keep everyone safe and well. Below you will find links to information about NHS Test and Trace and about when your child is well enough to come to school (if they have been offered a place in lockdown 3).
If your child is learning at home please go to their class page where you will find links to work in many different subjects. The Government expects primary aged children to do 3 hours work on school days – if your children are very young they may not manage to do this but it’s important to have a routine and make sure your child logs on every day.
If you are struggling to find this work or to help your child with any parts of it please contact your child’s class teacher and they will be able to help.
If your child is struggling without the routine of school or you are worried about their emotional well-being, have a look at our “support for families” page for some good ideas to keep them feeling strong and help them to make right choices. There is also help and advice on the Child Line website.
Please talk to your child about keeping safe online. The link below has lots of useful information for children of all ages.
Thank you for all your support in such difficult times. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing everyone back in school safe and well as soon as possible.
