Weekly reminders for week beginning 13th April 2020

Good morning Clockhouse

 

We all hope that you enjoyed the weekend and made the most of it under the strange and difficult times we find ourselves in. Thank you for sharing all your lovely photos from last week as well as your lovely feedback via the many different platforms we use. We are glad you enjoyed the video. If you have not seen it yet is can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=6&v=0P7L7_CbdA8&feature=emb_logo

Thank you to all those who have already taken the time to complete the online questionnaire that was sent out at the beginning of the Easter Holiday. It is not too late to do this. The questionnaire will run to the end of this week and can be accessed by using the following link -

Your feedback and thoughts are important to us. We have taken on board many of your comments and where possible will use these to improve our practice.

 

I hope you are all keeping well and staying indoors for the good of everyone so that our community can come back together as soon as possible.

 

As I said last week, it is the ‘Easter Holiday’ and everyone continues to deserve a bit of a rest so that our batteries can be recharged and we are ready to go again on Monday 20th April when we will return to the home schooling regime! Our advice over the holiday period continues to be to rest and have some fun, spend time as a family and just do the best you can. We would encourage you to keep some routine so that when we return after the holidays you and the children can get back into the full swing of things with relative ease.

 

For the next week there will be no home learning set on Google Classroom each day. This will return on Monday 20th April. There will however be a few things to look out for to keep you going, should you wish to take part:

  • On Tuesday the weekly learning sheet will be sent to you with ideas of things you can do without a computer and websites you can access should you wish
  • A daily up date from me (this will be in the evening)
  • The next 5 parts of the 30 Day Lego Challenge
  • The Challenge of the Day
  • Look out for something called ‘Votes For Schools’ (we did not get the too you last week)
  • As well as anything else we can find you help you along the way!

 

Please also look out for an important letter coming out tomorrow morning regarding the provision for children eligible for Free School Meals during this time.

 

Other things to be aware of:

  • There will continue to be school staff in school every day, but this will be on a rota basis and will only be a skeleton staff.
  • The best way to contact teachers / school staff is messaging via Class Dojo, please be aware that this will not be manned as closely as it has been during official term time. If you do need us though we are still here and this form of communication can be used. Our responses might just be a little slower.
  • The school phones will only be manned between 7.45am and 3.30pm. Please do not hesitant to call, even if it is only for a chat. If we cannot talk at that moment, someone will get back to you as soon as they can. Please only use option 3 and 5, as other lines will not be manned due to the reduced work force each day.
  • We will continue to ask for a weekly return from those key workers who may need child care for the next week, please do let us know as soon as possible. Please do keep in mind that the government are very clear that ‘you should only send your child to school if you have to, because your work is critical to the COVID-19 response. If you are able to keep your child at home, you should’.

 

Please keep sharing your pictures with us, we love seeing them. By sharing with us via class dojo or our other platforms, we will take this as your consent for wider sharing. If you do not want photos shared please do not send them.

 

These are very strange, unprecedented times and we will continue to do all we can to support you. I do hope you are adapting to this new way of life as best you can but if you do need help we are here for all of you.

 

I am sure you will want to join with me in thanking those in our community who are front line and key workers and also our great staff team.

 

Thank you for your kind messages and on-going support, it really keeps us going and makes us smile.

 

We are still one community and are here for you all. Our school – a family and a home for everyone!

Keep smiling and stay safe

Mrs Savidge
