Junior Offer - Year 3 to Year 6
Our junior children have been taught to use MS Teams regularly throughout the autumn term. During lockdown we will continue to teach remotely via MS Teams. We will offer daily live morning lessons, video lessons, quizzes and online activities. These activities will be equal to four hours of work if it has been done properly and if the children are working to the standard they normally would in school. We will also offer 'catch-up' live sessions with a teaching assistant for children identified by the class teacher as requiring extra support or encouragement. In addition to the normal topic work we will provide well being activities and PE sessions at least once a week.
It is hugely important that the children continue to read each day as they would be in school. They should read their reading books and any appropriate reading materials at home of interest to them. There are several free websites where children can read online and the class teachers will signpost you to these sites. If you require paper books due to lack of devices, please contact the school as we will support you with this.
Parents will need to support their children by encouraging them to do their best and take their time to ensure the tasks are done to their best ability. During last lockdown the normal high quality of writing was not consistent in the junior classes and we will be encouraging the children to produce high quality writing at all times. More information will follow from the class teachers as to how you may be able to support your child with this. If they still continue to get through the work quickly, please contact the class teacher or school office via email or MS Teams.
