As a staff team, we will continue to do all that we can to support you in guiding children with their learning whilst away from school. Of course, it goes without saying that if you, or your little ones are unwell there is no expectation that you will keep up a daily study routine. Each family must do what is best for them in their own particular set of circumstances. Mrs Macdona is always available by email if you have any queries and will direct anything specific to your child’s teacher.
After the Easter Holidays we will be sending out daily activities on Seesaw. All the information has been sent out to families. More information can be found here.
Each child has been provided with a notebook and pencil so that they can continue to carry out writing activities at home. They have also been given a set of workbook provided by the SMA (huge thanks to
the SMA for this invaluable support). If you are already away from school, please let us know if you will be able to collect workbooks for your child or if we can find a way to send them to you.
We have put together a list of general learning resources that should be suitable for learners of all ages. Class teachers have also produced more targeted advice for children in each year group, which has been sent via email but can also be accessed in the tabs under Menu (on a tablet) or to the left of this message (if you are on PC) All classes will hold a big ‘show and tell’ session upon children’s return so that they have the opportunity to show and talk about the learning that they did whilst the school was closed.
As previously advised, the year group guidance is in the form of MUST, SHOULD, COULD. This will outline
activities that your child should, for the most part, be able to engage with independently. The ‘must’ activities are things that are expected to happen. The ‘should’ activities are listed as things that ought to be happening and the ‘could’ activities listed will be to stretch and challenge those who wish to push themselves further.
