Welcome to the Summer Term.
We hope you are all well and managing to get out in the fresh air as much as possible. Below you will find a variety of ideas for remote learning from your child's teacher. Please use these ideas when you think it is right for your family, don't stress about schoolwork. In September, we can get your children back on track. Right now what we can't do anything about is how your children are feeling. So please share your calm, strength, laughter and love with your children. Your children are exactly where they need to be at the moment.
Please phone the school office if there is anything we can help you with on 01233 614660 or email on email@example.com
In this space, we will be adding documents that will be needed for your remote learning. We will be uploading new tasks daily to SeeSaw. This is where you can upload your completed work for us to see and we'll then be able to comment back! You may wish to print and complete work by hand. If you are doing this then you will need to take a photo of that work and upload it to SeeSaw for us to see.
We will provide any necessary documents/worksheets here on the website for you print if you wish.
However, the activities set will be via SeeSaw (your login is on the inside of your remote learning book).
