Here you will be able to find all information relevant to Penguin class during the Coronavirus outbreak, including planning and activities for the children to complete at home.
As a school, we have agreed to set one English and Maths session for each day of term, and there is a topic web with plans and activities for the other subjects we would be covering if normal school were in session.
I am sure you will all understand that this is an unusual way of working for all of us and may take a little time to get used to. I hope that my plans will be clear, easy to access and doable at home, but if there are issues with these let me know and I will try to address them.
I have explained as much as possible about what might happen in the weeks ahead to the children, including that there is an email account devoted to the class and myself for this time. This will be checked weekdays between 10 and 2. While there is no expectation that you send anything, I have told the children that I am happy for photos of learning, achievements and letters to be shared with me in this way. Thank you for the emails and updates, I have enjoyed them immensely.
If you would like to publicly share and celebrate home learning, please Tweet it, and link it to the School Twitter account.
For anyone who is worrying that what they are doing at home isn’t right or enough… It is. The well being and happiness of everyone in your household is the most important thing. We are trying to help out with learning, suggestions and routines, but I promise OFSTED will not visit your homes and judge your teaching! Be active, have fun, take time, and be kind to yourselves. Also remember that teachers in school have tea breaks!
If you are still worried, please do get in touch. Maybe I can help, but at the very least I can listen.
Take care, and I am thinking of you all,
