We hope you and your families are all keeping well and sane! Thank you again for your continued support in this home learning venture. As always, we are extremely grateful for all of the work you are all doing at home with your children.
As you will have heard last week, the government have proposed that schools will open up further to certain pupils from Monday 1st June. If you haven’t already, please read the email sent by Mrs Dowell indicating school’s position in this. Please get in touch with the office to let them know if your child is eligible and if you are intending on letting your child return to school on that date. If your child does not attend, home learning will still be updated weekly after half term for you and them to access at home.
Thanks for your emails and tweets, it’s been great to see how the children are doing. Please continue to use email to communicate between home and school, Y4@strobertbellarmine.co.uk or phone the school office if you need to speak to someone. Thank you once again 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 thehandle @StBellarmine and don't forget to use #yr4srb
The home learning has again been updated. Please don’t worry about trying to do all of the activities, they really are suggestions. But if you can, where possible, children should practice their 4-a-day, reading (Epic), spelling/handwriting, English and maths each day. There are lots of other subjects available for your child to work on too, but as we have said before: only do what works best for you and your family. This week there are some additional activities in case you want to change things up a bit. Please try to have a look at the PSHE resources. These are lovely activities and are a great way to get your children talking during this uncertain time. You will notice that the PSHE theme this week is ‘Influences and Decisions’. We would just like to point out that there is another resource for you to read from the PSHE Association (you can find this on the PowerPoint) before the children complete the tasks. We would really appreciate it if you could have a look at this document please.
Please also have a look at the SEND section on our school website, as there are some useful links for mental heath and wellbeing resources which may come in handy at this difficult time. They are not just for families of children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, they are there for everyone to use. You will find the link on the Year 4 class page of the website.
Finally, please remember, as we always say, 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. We appreciate that what you're being asked to do can be extremely stressful for all concerned. 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 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.
We look forward to catching up with you again over emails this week.
Take care and stay safe.
All the best,
Sir & Mrs Sutton
