Here is to a new year of less worries and bluer skies
Dear Parents and Children,
Miss Buckley and I hope you all had a peaceful, pleasant Christmas, and despite the ongoing uncertainties, feel ready and energized for the year ahead.
We had hoped that we would remain in school for the coming term; however, due to the current situation, some of the areas of learning that I had planned cannot be covered while we work remotely. Mini topics will now replace the larger topics that would have spanned over a term. Remote learning will be done via Google Classroom where I will set work for the children which they can then return to me electronically. The children should have a copy of login details in their reading record. I also have a copy of passwords, if needed.
We completely understand that people are very busy with all sorts of commitments, but we would be very grateful if you could continue to listen to your child read as often as you can. The children can also practice their times tables on Times Table Rockstars. Certificates for achievements in this area are awarded by Mr Parish in our virtual assemblies. All children should have their login in details stuck into their reading records. This same password enables them to log onto Numbots. The children can also spend time practicing spellings from the year 1 and 2 word list. These words are used on a daily basis in writing across the curriculum. See the file in Downloads for a list of the words.
If you have any questions, please contact me on email@example.com and I will answer any questions you may have as best I can.
Miss O’ Donovan & Miss Buckley
