School Closure Jan/Feb 2021
Following government guidelines, school will be closed until the government’s lockdown advice is reviewed in February.
School will be open for children of key workers and those pupils identified as vulnerable ONLY. Please contact the school office if you urgently require your child to be allocated a place in this provision.
HOME LEARNING – all pupils will be expected to complete tasks set at home to continue their learning. These will be set on Purple Mash (see below for more details).
Pupils are also expected to attend a daily work ’round-up’, where they will be able to share work and ask any questions. A link to the Zoom meeting will be sent to ‘2email’ in PurpleMash.
Y3 – 2pm
Y4 – 2:30pm
While school is closed, parents will be expected to work with their children at home on the following platforms.
ALL PUPILS are expected to complete work set daily on ‘Purple Mash’. Each day there will be a maths lesson and worksheet to complete. There will be a task set for literacy and a video showing you what to do. There will also be a set of activities to do for other subjects. For most of these you will be off the computer and completing other activities. Please photograph the work you complete and upload it to your PurpleMash folder for your teacher to see.
You can also show your work at the daily ‘work round-up’ on Zoom (Y3-2pm, Y4-2:30pm, Y5-3pm, Y6 3:30pm) which you need to attend every day.
New projects for each year group will be set this week (4th Jan 2021)
SCREEN TIME & BREAK
Please ensure children maintain a healthy balance between screen-based and other activities. We have also attached some other suggestions for home-based learning and some suggestions for active and well-being breaks.
