We would like to begin by saying another huge thank you for your continued help and support during this difficult time. We want you to know that we are really grateful for how much you are doing and know that it isn’t easy. We are glad to hear that the timetable has enabled more structure to your home schooling and appreciate how hard the children and yourselves are working whilst at home.
It was lovely to catch up with so many of you over the phone this week and it was great to hear how well the children are coping with their home learning. It was also lovely to hear about all of the family activities that the children have been carrying out in addition to their home learning tasks.
I have received emails from some of you already but this is just a reminder that I am available for support, if you have any questions, on our class email, which is Y6@strobertbellarmine.co.uk. The children can also contact me or share work with me on here too.
Thank you to those of you who have accepted the request for your child to join Epic! Reading. However, I can see that quite a few children are still yet to join. If you haven’t accepted the request to join, could you please do so? This is an excellent resource that provides a huge range of books.
You will notice that the PSHE theme this week is Mental Health and Well-Being. The children have already carried out work on this area in school so they should be able to discuss the issues in the tasks with you really well. I would just like to point out that there is a resource for you to read from the PSHE Association (you can find this on the PowerPoint) before the children complete the tasks. I would really appreciate it if you could have a look at this document.
Thank you for the tweets – we really enjoy seeing them. We know how busy you all are at the moment but it would be great if you can tweet what the children have been up to using the handle @StBellarmine and #Y6SRB.
Finally, please remember, as I said last week, 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. Therefore, please ensure that you continue to take time as a family to relax. If your child is struggling with their work one day, please remember to factor in more breaks for them or direct them to some of the mindfulness activities that we have provided. You are all doing an amazing job and we can’t thank you enough.
Take care and stay safe.
I look forward to catching up with you over emails this week.
Love Mrs McQuiggan and Mrs Johnson xx
