Celebrations of Distance Learning
During these very strange times I thought I would try to update the school community and celebrate home learning using this News page.
I was a bit apprehensive this morning and wondered how all our plans and the technology would work. I am delighted to say we haven't had too many cries for help. Staff in school have been excited to send and receive messages too!
i) We have seen video clips of parents and children working out with Joe Wicks and this inspired the Year R staff to have a go and post on Seesaw!
ii) The older children have been posting maths and writing on to Seesaw and the teachers have been able to give almost instant feedback to support and encourage them.
iii) Here's a link to a more creative home learning activity. Congratulations to Alex M in Year 3 for writing this poem using Book Spines!
iv) Thank you to one parent who has taken the time to give us some positive feedback.
I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you for all your efforts over the past week in getting everything set up in order to enable the children to continue learning from home.
I fully appreciate that this would have been a massive task and with little time for planning. To have us up and running for a proper day of learning today is an amazing achievement and I wanted to pass on my thanks to all involved. So far Abi is loving the set up and so happy that she is able to see and communicate with her teacher.
Having spoken to friends with children at different schools today and having heard their experiences I really think what you have achieved has been amazing so thank you.
Hopefully we will see you all again soon.
Please keep sending in photos, videos etc and please let us know how you are all doing.
take good care.
Mrs Ingman and staff
