Dear Parents and Carers,
Can we begin by saying a huge thank you for all your hard work. It has been great working together to ensure that your child gets the best experience possible.
As we now seem to be in a routine, we thought that it would be a good idea to put into writing all the things we have put into place.
A timetable of the week’s activities will be on our class web page at the beginning of the week. Activities will then be set using Teams assignments. They will appear the evening before so that you can download any worksheets and be more prepared for the following day. Any necessary answers will be posted on the day of the activity around 12pm. Activities will be available for at least two days. Your child’s work can be uploaded to Teams so that we can provide feedback. Some of you, I know, have had trouble with this. Many of you upload photos of the work, which is fine, but I have also asked Mr Atherton to provide a guide of how he uploads work and I hope that helps some of you. The guide follows this letter.
At 9.45am there will be a daily lesson on Teams. Here we will introduce the work for the day to get children started. We will then be online at 12.45 – 1pm if you have any problems. We will then do our best to help you. At 3.15pm we will meet again and end the day with a story.
On Teams, there are 3 channels. Meetings, General and Class Chat. In ‘General’ we will put the assignments and here you can raise any questions. This is not for the children to chat to each other. For that the children can use ‘Class Chat’.
On the class web page, we will put spellings, tables, useful resources and the weekly project. We will keep these separate as they will be available for a longer period.
If your child needs more activities, we can recommend Oak National Academy, Bitesize and CBBC. Remember Mr Gosling's workout; he's suggesting children send him pictures of themselves doing the workouts. His sessions can be found on YouTube - Long Bennington Church of England.
You can use Teams to contact us but also Purple Mash email. We will set CLIC tests at the end of the week using the latter.
We hope that this makes everything clear. However, please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you are unsure about anything, need support or resources to help with home learning.
Stay safe and take care
Ms Crowson and Ms Flint.
