I hope this letter finds you and your families safe and well and managing to enjoy some of the beautiful weather.
As you know, we are now in our fourth week of home learning. We have tried to provide packs of activities that allow your child to continue their work at home and develop their skills too.
We are also very aware of how difficult and unusual this situation is and many, many families will have children working within different age groups, little ones who need your attention, you yourself may be trying to work from home and some may feel worried about how to go about homeschooling. We really hope to support you and your child the best way we can.
We continue to put packs of work on the class page of the school website with activities covering different areas of the curriculum. I have tried to include more links to videos and help sheets which may be useful if your child is stuck or needs a recap of what to do.
There is a suggested timetable which is an example of how to break the work up into manageable chunks, with breaks. This is only a suggestion and please feel free to work in a way that suits you and your family best. If activities take longer than suggested that is absolutely find, your child can always come back to it the next day. There is also a short video with some useful approaches to home learning.
We now have an online reading library called Epic! Reading which children can access from home to continue their reading skills. An email has been sent out to you all and I can see that many of the children are enjoying the books. I will resend this email for anyone who has not had the chance to sign up yet. The children also have access to TTRockstars and Sumdog which are online maths activities which the children enjoy working on. If they cannot remember their passwords, please email school and we can tell you what they are.
If you find your child is struggling with any of the work, please look at the new information on the SEND section, which can be found under the Key Information tab on the school website.
We love to see your tweets and Twitter has been a good way to communicate with us using the handle @stBellarmine but we also hope to have a class email account set up soon which can be used to keep in touch with us, share work with us and make communication a little easier.
We also hope to contact parents by phone for a quick chat and to answer any questions you may have about the activities.
We would like to offer our sincere thanks and appreciation for everything you are doing to help your child access the home learning tasks and supporting them in their learning during these difficult times.
We hope to see you all very soon,
Mrs Devine & Mrs Rigby.
