Good Morning All,
Thank you all for your hard work in supporting your children last week - I saw some great pieces of work. I know it is challenging to support Learning from Home, but what you are do is appreciated.
Just a few updates for this week.
I will be delivering Zoom Tutorials this week each day apart from Tuesday (Head Teacher Assembly).
The meeting ID should stay the same for all Zooms (995 6356 2079) - I just need to check that I can add Thursdays to the existing recurring meeting. The passcode is also the same as last week - small blue fictional creature). My aim is to get more interaction this week.
Your student should be working for about 4 hours each day. My aim is for them to spend an hour each on English and Maths, along with an hour on the additional subject for the day. The fourth hour should be used on the challenge, starter, PE activity and Newsround. If your student is spending more time on the work that is fine - but should not be overdoing it. If all of the work is not finished in the time, then please feel free to be realistic with the time they are spending.
Thank you for sending only one email where possible - it does help me when marking.
Homework will be set each Friday, but will only include spellings and a Maths Arithmetic paper. These should be completed by Friday (Spellings will be tested on Zoom). Maths paper can be marked at home as I will publish the answer sheet too.
Feel free to send me photos of what has been done - but this is just an extra 'non-academic' activity so nothing is expected.
I just wanted to advise you all that our topic in R.E. is Death Traditions and Rites across World Faiths. This study will involve us looking at how different religions manage the process of what happens after someone dies, and will touch on the beliefs of these faiths in the afterlife. This is a designated curriculum subject and follows our studies on Creation stories last term. If you feel that the lessons set on this topic may have an adverse effect on your child, then please let me know at the time. I feel that these lessons will be very interesting, but wanted you to be aware in case your child asks questions about any family members who may have passed away in their memory.
Here's to a new week.
