Remote Learning- 1st June

Remote learning from 1st June, 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

From 1st June, St. Peter’s will begin Google Classroom again as the remote learning platform for Years 1-6. However, as the numbers of key worker children in school increases, and as we continue to put health and safety at the forefront of everything we do,  this has implications for the numbers of staff in school and how they organise the work set for your children.

From 1st, staff will continue to set daily work on Google Classroom for:

 

  • Writing
  • Maths
  • Reading
  • Grammar / Phonics (Year 1 and 2)

 

As a result of this reduction in the amount of work children are expected to complete, we expect all children in Y1-Y6 to complete these 4 pieces of work every day and will be monitoring closely though teacher phone calls and home visits those children that are not. It is a crucial part of your child’s transition back into school that they continue to complete work and will ensure they do not fall behind.

 

In terms of other subjects, there will be links at the top of the class’ Google Classroom page to BBC Bitesize and Oak Academy. These links will take children to daily lessons in all other subjects. Our expectation is that children will complete 1 piece of work each week in any subject of their choosing. We are hoping that this reduction in expectations of work will support our parents who are still working from home, those in larger families and with very young children and also support our staff that are spending an increasing amount of time in school with key worker children.

For children that wish to, they can of course complete as much additional work from these links as they wish.

Mr Chapman will continue to set a PE task for each class each week and Tapestry will continue to run as normal for Nursery and Reception. For Nursery and Pre-nursery parents, there are additional activities on our website on our main news feed.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support with our remote learning to date. We have had excellent feedback from our families and are very proud of some of the wonderful work the children have been producing.

 

Mrs Whiteside

Deputy Headteacher
