Reception 'Learning From Home' Zone
Week 4 Remote Learning 25th- 29th January 2021
Did any of you spot the flurry of snow we had this weekend? Not enough to make a snowman, but exciting to see!
Hopefully you have all been getting to grips with this new way of learning, and we fully appreciate how different and challenging it is for our families. We want to help and support you in any way we can, so please do ask - you are not alone! We are all in this together.
Please check Tapestry each day for your activities and challenges... and please share your child's learning with us
Remote learning remains statutory, so we do require your child to engage with the learning and for you to send in photographs and comments on Tapestry each day so that we are able to keep a good track on what's happening at home. This can be done by simply taking a mobile phone photograph of your child's learning or activity and uploading it to the page. There's a Tapestry app in the App Store or the Play Store, or you can do it via Safari or your own phone's internet option.
If you are having issues sending work in, please do let us know as we may be able to make other suggestions.
Miss Wylie will be running a live storytime session and catch up ON THURSDAYS AND FRIDAYS AT 2.30pm via Teams. Log in and hit 'JOIN' in the Calendar tab down the left hand side (on a laptop/tablet) or by clicking on the [...] along the bottom on a mobile phone and selecting 'Calendar'. We are really looking forward to seeing all of our lovely children, and it will be great for them to see us and their class mates. On MONDAYS, TUESDAYS AND WEDNESDAYS, Miss Brunwin will be uploading a story onto Tapestry for you to watch with your children at home at a time that suits you.
Times are hard for everyone, the most important thing is to look after your own mental health and help your family to do the same.
We will post enough work so your children can find tasks they'll enjoy! Do what's right for you and your circumstances.
In terms of learning, the priority is to keep reading, phonics and number tasks going whenever you can, these things will make it easier to return to learning once school re-opens.
Have a good week!
Miss Brunwin and Miss Wylie
