LockDown update Jan 6th 2021 16:00 pm
|Dear Parents and Carers|
First of all, a thank you to all of our families for your cooperation and support as we have embarked on this new lockdown journey together. You have all survived Day 1! I am sending a short update so that families know more about what to expect in the coming days and weeks. As you will be aware we are open to critical workers’ children in the main school. Most families have now indicated their need for this but do let us know via email if there are any changes. Wrap around care remains closed.
Sadly, I cannot re-open our pre-school as we do not have the staffing capacity to open this safely within the guidelines for Early Years provision.
Currently, the staff are uploading work for you to access this week. You will have the following work for each class: Daily maths including times tables rock stars where age appropriate Daily Literacy activities A 30 Day Creative challenge We are sure that this will enable families to manage the home learning for this week whilst we organise ourselves for the children in school and to offer you the full programme of remote learning as set out on the matrix sent earlier this week. From Monday 11th January each teacher will make contact with the class via a video recording, detailing the activities for that day with reference to the uploaded learning. Please send your teacher a couple of photos of completed tasks per week via email, so that we can monitor children’s engagement with their learning. If you have any queries or concerns about the uploaded work we will endeavour to respond and/or support you. The teachers, whilst preparing and uploading remote learning are also working in school for children of critical workers. On those days the video may be slightly delayed as the teacher will need to attend to the children in school first. I also plan to contact families weekly via email to try to keep our school community connected in some way. I will also upload a story each week which children may like to listen to or have as a bedtime story. If you wish you can send occasional photos that can be uploaded to our school Facebook page in accordance with our policy. If any families are struggling with remote access due to a lack of digital equipment please let us know so that we can look at ways to support you.
If your child is attending school under the provision for critical workers please can you provide the following:
* A packed lunch (Dolce are not providing meals)
* A healthy snack (we have fruit this week but not after 11/01/21)
* A named water bottle
* A bag of named warm outdoor clothing (outdoor activities/walks)
* A pair of boots suitable for outdoor walk eg. wellies
FREE SCHOOL MEALS PROVISION
For those families who would normally receive a food parcel or vouchers please stay in contact with Mrs Davy. Dolce are in the process of organising food parcels and hope to have a system for this ready very soon. I will update once I have received confirmation.
For those of you in Badgers class please bear with me a little longer. As Mrs Murray is still poorly with Covid19, I will take over the uploading of work for her class temporarily. I am working on this in between my other roles and hope to have the work ready for you later today. My apologies for the delay. In the meantime you could look at resources under Oak National Academy or the live lessons now available on your red button via the BBC. Stay safe everyone, I will be in touch every week but do please email with any individual needs as necessary.
