We would like to start with a huge thank you for another week of home schooling with your child. We want you to know that we are really grateful for how much you are doing and we appreciate that it isn’t easy with the many things you are having to juggle at the minute. We are glad to hear that the weekly timetable has enabled more structure to your home schooling for both the children and yourselves.
It was great to catch up with so many of you over the phone this week – thank you for taking the time to chat with me and to talk about how it was all going! Hearing your feedback, the children’s voices and sharing all the learning that is taking place gave me a great lift.
As I said during our conversations, please just do what you can and what you feel works best for your child and family as we don’t want you to feel that there should be any extra pressure put on your family. Many of you have now developed your own daily routines and selected the areas you feel are best to focus on; this is absolutely fine. Please feel free to choose from the weekly activities, there is no expectation to complete everything. Although the activities cover many aspects of the curriculum, the subjects to prioritise are reading, 4-a-day/times tables/maths and spelling.
As you know there is now a class email so that your child can send us one piece of work each week that they would like us to see. It is an easy way for them keep in touch with us and ask any questions they may have about the work. Already we have had a number of emails and it is lovely for us to see what the children have been working on and to say well done to them. You can also still keep in touch with us via twitter too #yr4srb
In case you have missed the email, our class email address is:- Y4@strobertbellarmine.co.uk
Finally, please remember, although it is important that your child continues with their learning whilst at home, their health and well-being (along with your own) is just as important. I have added the information from the SEND section of website to the Year 4 class page. There is some useful information to help you support the wellbeing of your child during this difficult time. If your child is struggling with their work one day, please remember to factor in more breaks for them and maybe take time as a family to relax. We do not want you to feel under any additional pressure during this time, which is far from normal. You are all doing an amazing job and we can’t thank you enough.
We look forward to catching up with you through your emails this week.
Take care and stay safe.
Sir & Mrs Sutton
