A message from Mrs Goodland

Home Learning

I would like to extend a round of applause to you all for engaging so brilliantly with the home learning over the last few weeks.  It is a highlight for me each day to go through the Home Learning Email Account, read the messages and look at all the lovely photos.  I have been so impressed with the quality of learning.  Until school reopens learning activities will continue to be placed on the home learning pages on the website.  Our focus is to ensure that the children’s education is not adversely affected during this difficult time, by providing a range of activities that enable them to progress with their learning.   However, the teachers and I also understand that at times there will be challenges and frustration whilst carrying out home learning.  To help, the Government have recently published some guidance for parents, I thought it would be helpful to share this with you.  The full guidance can be found by using the link below but I have picked out the following to reassure you that you are doing a great job!

“No one expects parents to act as teachers, or to provide the activities and feedback that a school would………….. Parents and carers should do their best to help children and support their learning.”

“Do not worry about trying to maintain a full routine for your child like they had at school.”
