Dear parents/carers and Falcons,
I hope you have all had a restful Easter break and that you are all well. I hope that you have enjoyed the lovely weather we have been having!. As school closures will continue, each year group has made a suggested timetable with links to learning and activities. Please remember, the timetable is there as a guide and we do not expect everyone to follow it every day. We understand that during this difficult time no one needs any extra pressure so please pick and choose what works for you from the timetable.
I will be calling you again during the week and am looking forward to catching up with you.
KS2 Update Friday 3rd April 2020
It’s been a strange couple of weeks for our school community but it has been great to talk to parents and children on the phone and to hear what you’ve been doing.
Thank you also for your emails with pictures of children’s work which we are very much enjoying. If you do decide to share work with the class teacher, we would appreciate it if you could send these in once a week to the homework email address and they will be forwarded to teachers from the school office.
The next two weeks are officially Easter holiday weeks and so we will not be calling or setting new work.
When the new term starts on Monday 20th April, we will be posting a weekly timetable on the school website class page each week; the work will cover most of the learning objectives we would have taught in school for that week (as far as this is possible). It is important that children try to follow this and establish a daily routine but we realise that this will be different for different families in different situations; please just do your best. At school, children learn the values of resourcefulness and resilience and this situation is a good reminder of why these values are so important.
Even though it’s hard being so constrained in our movements and not seeing friends, it’s a good time for the children to learn new things through practical experiences at home – cook, learn to ride a bike, learn how to touch type, make things, learn a rhyme or a poem, sing, sew, knit, tell the time. You will probably have lots of other ideas too!
Most of all, enjoy spending time with your lovely children.
Thanks so much for all your support and we wish you all a happy and healthy Easter!
The KS2 Team
Below are some useful links and documents to help your child with their learning while they are off school. One of them is Oxford Owl and this has several ebooks which the children can read. The username is: Caldecott3w and the passwords is: Falcons.
The children also have taken a learning pack home (or it will be delivered to you if they are absent this week). The pack includes a timetable to help them structure the day as well as resources to help them with their work.
I will be phoning the children once a week - on either your home number or your mobile number - to check how they (and their family) are getting on; the number will either show up as the school's number or it will be unknown.
Please do let me know if there is anything the school can do to help you.
