Home Learning During School Closures:
First and foremost, thank you to all of you who have been supportive of school during this unprecedented period. We appreciate that like us, a lot has been asked of you and your role as a parent through this pandemic, and we know that you are doing the best you can to support your children with their home learning during this period.
Many of you have been in touch through the class email accounts to say that you have finished the activities set and would like some more learning to support and stretch your child further. The learning we set was put together by class teachers during the constrained period the government gave us prior to closure, and was designed to fill the time we would spend in school on each subject over the period of a fortnight.
Please continue to contact your class teacher during the period of the closure for any support or guidance, or just to remain in touch.
This is an unprecedented emergency situation, which is impacting on the whole world.
We know that you are, and always will be, your child's primary educator and you know your child best; if they spend time digging in the dirt, baking cakes or watching television, that is OK.
As a school, we had very limited notice and very limited preparation time. We were not told to continue to plan lessons as normal and just send them home - that's not possible, so what we have sent home is guidance for what you could do with your child. There are many other things which are hugely valuable like spending time together reading, playing a game, baking, gardening and being outdoors; all of these are OK too.
The home learning and website links we have provided are suggestions of what you could do with your child – we will continue to add further ideas and information on our Twitter page @WarmsworthPrim1, as we find them, so please have a look.
We appreciate that your main role through this situation we face is to look after yourself and your family. Minimising stress is absolutely vital for everyone in a time like this - don't let home learning be something that stresses you and your family.
We will be making contact with every child at some point during our school closure – we want to keep in touch and know that you are all safe and well!
If there is anything further we can do to support you and your child’s education, don’t hesitate to get in touch via the class email link, but please don’t forget that maintaining a healthy mental wellbeing during this time is just as important.
From all the staff at Warmsworth Primary School
