Arrangements for Learning-Please Read

Dear Parents and Carers


Your heads are probably spinning with the shock from last night. I know ours certainly are. This time when we are in lockdown,  our technology (and our skill) is much better.


 All the teachers want to zoom their classes this afternoon to say hello and offer the children reassurance. Your teacher will be sending a zoom invite for this afternoon for the following times:


Year R (Bats, Rabbits, Owls) 2 o'clock

Year 2 (Hedgehogs, Foxes, Frogs) 1.15pm

Year 1 (Squirrels, Robins, Otters) 1.45pm


Between 1 o'clock and 3pm today your child's learning pack will be outside their classroom for you to pick up. Their books are labelled, so please only take your child's book. Please use the one way system and wear a mask to do this. Books will be available in the turning circle to pick up (if you are unable to make today)tomorrow between 9.30am and 2pm.


Free School Meal Food Hampers will be available to pick up from tomorrow, for children eligible for Free School Meals (not universal credit). Please check with Mrs Palmer in the office if you are unsure whether you are eligible for these Hampers.


We are extending 'Tapestry' into Year 1 and 2 so that children can send their learning to their teacher for feedback (instead of using email). This will be ready next week, and we will send each child their individual log in as soon as they have been set up.


We have Sum Dog and TT Rockstars as practise platforms for maths and English skills. All other learning is currently in your child's Year Group Folder, under 'blended learning'.


Remote Learning Timings


All children will have a zoom with their teacher at the start of the day, Monday to Friday. This is to introduce the learning for the day. The timings are as follows:

Year 1 and 2: 9am

Year R 9.30am

All children will have a zoom at the end of the day for story and a song/rhyme. The timing for this will be 2.45pm.


From next week onwards, there will other 'live' sessions through the day to zoom into too. Your child's class teacher will get in touch with you regarding timings for these sessions.


Year Group emails are open for any questions or answers you may have. Critical worker and vulnerable child applications will be replied to within the next hour.

I hope this is clear to all. Please contact us if you are unsure of how to access learning either via the office or your Year Group, and we will be there to help.


Kind regards

Mrs Riches
