A weekly timetable and specific class work for next week will be uploaded tomorrow afternoon between 2 and 3 pm onto each class web page.
From then on, weekly work will continue to be uploaded each Friday afternoon between 2 and 3 pm. You will notice that we have built in some more general ‘family time’ activities as well as some time for more specific class focused work. It is a good idea to try and follow the timetable as much as you can. Children will respond better to routine and some structure. However, we do understand these are difficult times and some of you have a number of children at home so it might not always be possible to keep exactly to the timetable and tasks set. Do not worry if this happens. We just ask you to do the best you can.
Children learning at home is very different from being in school so please allow for this. You may need to lower your expectation as to how long your child can stay working, and concentrating in one go. Two hours specific focused work (spread across the day) is plenty !
You will have access to teacher’s emails which will be on each class web page. Please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher via email if you have a concern or need clarification about work set. Teachers are still working during this period ( planning, giving feedback on work, sometimes in school providing child care) but please be mindful that they may be experiencing a larger than usual number of emails so a response might not be immediate. You should however receive a response within 24 hours Monday - Friday.
These are difficult times and we hope to work with you all to continue to provide the very best education for the children that we possibly can. We thank you in advance for your support with this.
