The Easter Holidays will soon be here and although this is not a normal period of time within the school year, we would like to keep the holidays as normal. So there will be no learning or work set for the two weeks of the Easter Holidays. We will add Easter activities and ideas on the school website class pages but these are purely as fun activities to be enjoyed by all if you wish.
This time needs to be a rest from any formal learning for the children and also a rest for all parents/families who are supporting learning at home. Please use this time to have fun, play games and spent time together as a family without the added pressures of trying to complete school work.
Information and learning resources/activities will resume after the Easter Holidays. This information will be added to the relevant Class Pages on the school website and on the general parents section - learning at home. While we require this learning to be accessed online we don expect any of you to be printing anything off. All learning can be completed in the lined and squared paper books that your child was provided with in the learning packs on the 20th March. All learning should continue to be photographed or scanned and sent to the Class teachers via the relevant Class emails for marking.
We are currently trying to produce videos to support with learning at home, including any new concepts of skills. We will continue to add these onto the school website as soon as we are able. Please understand that this is a time consuming task and may take time to produce and upload but we will do it.
At the present time the staff are producing videos to support the learning of Phonics at home using our letters and sounds scheme and also handwriting. This is relevant to the way we teach phonics and handwriting in our school and may be different to other schools and online sites. Please use our videos to support at home. We will inform you when these are uploaded onto the school website.
We are also currently uploading lots of information for internet and online safety while at home on the Parents page and where relevant we will send via email. This is extremely important in these difficult times and we need to continue to make sure our children are being kept safe while accessing learning using computers and the internet.
Thank you for all of your support. I know that for some of you, this is an exceedingly difficult time and we appreciate everything you are doing to keep your children safe and well at home, as well as supporting them with their learning. We are always here to support and help you to the best of our ability so if you need any help please contact us via the school phone 01775 820302 or via my email email@example.com or via the Class emails. This includes during the Easter Holidays where school will remain open for any of our Key Worker Children or Vulnerable children but with minimal staff.
Stay safe. Stay healthy. Stay strong.
Sending much love
Mrs Jameson and all of the Quadring Staff Family
