I hope you have all survived your first day. I know that I’m well and truly exhausted!
I will be posting the children’s online learning for each day on Class Dojo and here on our school website. I will post it each evening ready for you to start the next day. The tasks will be on the Class Story page, but if I use any worksheets I will put these on the child’s activity page, for them to complete. It is not quite the same as being in the classroom, but I’m sure the children will try their best and complete the lessons to the best of their ability. For the children who are still attending school each day, they will be doing the same activities with me in class.
For each day, there will be a lesson for reading, writing, English, maths and topic. I’m aware that this is quite a lot of work but please just do what you can. I wanted to provide you with lots of ideas then you can pick and choose what you would like to do. Some of the English activities may be challenging for your child at this stage of the year and they may need a little help. If something is too difficult, just adapt it for your child. Obviously, at school, the children are all in different ability groups and we adapt work when necessary.
For some lessons, there will be a website link. This will take you to the Oak National Academy website where there are videos of the lesson and some activities to go with it. Work can be recorded on worksheets if you have access to a printer, or alternatively, you can record their work in a book. I will put some large workbooks in a box in our school reception for you to take at any point if you would like one. I will also leave some letter sheet, which will help the children when they are doing their work. I would love to see any photographs of the work which is competed. You can send this to me via Class Dojo messages.
Please send me a message if you have any questions. I will try to answer questions as quickly as possible, but I will still be in school teaching and won’t always be available. The best time to get me will be in the evening.
