Weekly work (11th January)
Dear Year 6 and Parents/Carers,
Firstly, we would like to thank you for all of your support, hard-work and positive feedback we have received over the last week! It has been so lovely to see all of your faces and stay connected and we are so pleased that we are able to do this. The transition into another lockdown, home learning and all that this involves has not been easy for any of us: children, parents and teachers! So, thank you!
Now we have all had a bit of time to settle into our new routines, we thought we’d just clarify a few things and let you know of some slight tweaks:
Sending work in via email
Maths: as the answers are available on the website we will not be asking you to take pictures or send Maths work in. Please continue to ensure you are dating each activity sheet (and any extra work completed in your books) and keep these sheets in your Maths books. If there are any parts of the learning you are still finding tricky after our input and watching the videos, do let us know via the class email and we will offer some direct feedback and we will also do our best to work this into the daily zoom calls. Remember, you have a choice of activities depending on how you are finding the particular learning we are doing.
English: We do not need to see each piece of work you complete. We will expect to see something in the week but we will direct you each week as to which piece of work we would like you to send in. The majority of your English work – unless we state otherwise – should be handwritten in your English book. If we ask for you to send it in, take a picture of the work in your book or scan and send via email. We will always make a note on the website and tell you of the work we expect to see.
Foundation subjects: you do not need to send work in via email unless we say otherwise. Please keep all work completed, in Science and foundation subjects, in the plastic wallet your books were sent home in. On return to school, we will have specific subject days scheduled in order to put work in books, celebrate the achievements and give feedback.
We know that you will complete work which you are very proud of so please do feel free to share it with us via email if you would like to. Whilst we don’t need every piece of work, we totally understand that you are proud of your work and want to share things with us. We hope that this expectation is a welcomed balance!
We don’t want the website pages to be too “busy” so it is hard to see what you need each day so, we will clear the activity sheets and tasks from the website at the end of each week and start afresh with the following week’s work.
We do hope this all makes sense and helps us all with the experience of ‘home-schooling’ as we fully appreciate what a challenge it is! As always, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to email us and we will respond as soon as we can. Any emails after 4pm will be responded to the next day.
Once again thank you and stay safe!
Mrs Newton and Mr E
