Dear Parents and Carers
For the next two weeks you will find your child's learning tasks on this page. Each day your child will have one Maths, one Literacy and one additional subject (IT, Geography, Science, RE or PE) activity to complete. It is expected that all 3 tasks will be completed on the provided sheets, books or instructed webpage (Purple Mash).
We will have a zoom call as a whole class each day at 10:30 am and I will work with the children through the topic (max 30 min) and then they will complete the activity by themselves.
Additional it is expected that your child will use Lexia, TT Rock Stars and Epic.
Passwords for the first two are included in the school pack.
In your child's school pack you will find:
A phone call by either Mrs Franklin or I will take place next week.
Please ensure to take a photo of all your child's work and send it to me via email (apart from any work completed on Purple Mash),
If you have any questions please contact me via email and I will try to answer your questions as quickly as possible. I know this is a stressful time for everyone, I have 2 children at home as well, which need to be home schooled these 2 weeks.
