A message from Mrs Marr
Hello everyone, I hope you are all keeping well.
I have heard lovely stories from our families about what you have been getting up to during lock down. We’ve had baking, body painting as monsters, treasure hunts around the house and garden, shopping expeditions in the kitchen, and lots of digital learning. Thank you to all of you for engaging so willingly with this new form of learning. It is an unusual time for all of us but it is great to see so many people trying to make the most of a challenging situation.
Please remember – home learning can look different in every household and even for every child in a household. You might have one child who is really enjoying home learning and will happily work through this with very little input from you while your other child may be refusing point blank to sit down or even consider looking at our learning grids. Please don’t worry! Do not feel under any pressure to complete activities sent home. These are there to support you if you find them useful. If you would rather engage your child in a different form of learning that’s up to you. Even if your child is not engaging in any form of learning right now, again please don’t worry. This will come with time and it will take on whatever shape works best for you as a family. As with school messages – if these are too frequent for you or you feel they are interrupting your day, please don’t engage with them. We do ask that you make contact with your child’s class teacher a couple of times each week just to let us know you are all ok. This might be in the form of a picture uploaded to show your child playing, baking, singing etc or it might just be a quick message to touch base. Anything is fine – just let us know you are well. Similarly, if you are struggling in any way or there is anything we can do to help, please contact us and let us know.
Please look after yourselves and enjoy this time together as a family and remember we are only at the other end of the phone or email. Please stay in touch.
