Hello to everyone in Second Class, A very happy new year to you and your family. I hope you are all keeping well and had a lovely Christmas.
It is unfortunate that we are back to remote learning, I know my girls are very disappointed not to be getting back to school and seeing everyone in their class. We all hope that it won’t be for very long.
I have assigned work to keep everyone busy throughout the week. I fully understand that these are very strange and stressful times especially trying to do schoolwork, work from home and keep a house going. Do what you can from the list below. The children have all the textbooks in their folders, they don’t have any copies. Most of the work is written into the books; however they may need a general copy or just a blank page to complete some of the activities.
It would be great, if the children could send me a photo of one piece of written work on see-saw every day. I will always respond as quickly as I can. I will also upload various see-saw activities; I know that children enjoy completing these. The children’s see-saw code is inside their homework diary. If you have any problems getting onto see-saw please email me and I will forward you a new code. My Email address is email@example.com
I have also uploaded a time table outlining work for each day. I hope it is useful.
