Day 1 of home learning
I hope you all enjoyed and had fun with day 1 of your home learning journey. I've seen lots of great pictures and videos of children's work and them having fun at home and I am so impressed! Phoebe and I have looked through the pictures on the website this afternoon and it has given us some ideas! Mrs Deverson had 90 pieces of work sent on see saw to review - I'm glad you are all keeping the teachers busy!
We opened today for a few key worker children. Please remember that this is the criteria of key worker children as written by the DfE:
Children with a parent or carer who is listed on the government’s critical worker list should be considered for a school place, so long as their job cannot be done from home.
Many parents working in these sectors will be able to ensure their child is kept at home. And every child who can be safely cared for at home should be, to limit the chance of the virus spreading.
Thank you for considering this before assuming your child can attend school.
Please do not worry about your children's education being compromised, every single child in the country (and the world) are in the same boat. We are here to support you through this difficult time with some learning, but do not feel pressured to complete it all. We understand that many of you are trying to work from home and are juggling 3 different aged children, with conference calls and constant emails ( or a similar situation). We understand that it is not easy. Just do your best.
The weeks ahead will have an impact on us all, so aim to do something uplifting which brings optimism so that your children remember this as a special positive family time, rather than fear and anxiety.
Best wishes - keep in touch
