Home Learning

Remote Learning in the Event of a Bubble Closure

In the event of a class/bubble closure, we will provide your child with a remote home learning package for the duration of the bubble closure.  This will contain a mixture of  online and offline activities.  Details of this will be sent to you via Schoolcomms.  A  copy of it, along with the lesson materials your child needs, will be uploaded into Google Classroom for your child to access using their usual Google Classroom login details.

Homework

A Year 2 newsletter is sent out via School Comms each week outlining our learning for the following week.  A homework activity will be set each week on Google Classroom.

Reading: Please read with your child as often as possible and ideally at least three times a week. Reading books are changed on a Monday, this is the only day reading books should be in school.

Announcements

Please report all absences to the school office before 8:30 am. We have a 24 hour absence line 01943 873180 where you can leave a message to let us know what the reason for absence is. You must not send any child in to school if anyone in the household is displaying the symptoms of Covid-19. If your child has sickness or diarrhoea they must be kept off school for 48 hours after the last bout of illness.
Things we can all do to help us all stay safe: • Carry on being very vigilant and keep checking for symptoms. • If in doubt – be cautious, keep your child off and get them tested. An extra day at home for one child is much better than 14 days of isolation for a whole class. • Arrange for just one adult to drop off or pick up children. • Continue to use the full 15-minute windows (8.45-9.00am and 3.10-3.25pm) for drop off/pick up. Avoid arriving earlier than this so that we do not have groups of people queuing on the pavements. • Keeping moving and leave the school site quickly. • Reduce congestion near school entrances or classroom doors by encouraging older children to enter and leave school independently. We thank you for your help with this.
