Dear Year 5 parents, carers and children,
This is an incredibly difficult time for everyone and first and foremost, we hope that everyone is keeping as safe and well as they can. Due to the school closure on Monday, we know that many parents and children will want advice and activities for how to move forward. It is an anxious time as this is new for all of us. However, what we can confidently say is that your children have all been working hard throughout the year, and whenever we do get back to normality, we know that they will come back to Lady J and continue to work hard.
We will be putting information on the website for parents to follow. We have created a list of activities that will help with home learning. There is a suggested daily timetable, as many children will respond to a familiar routine. However, we are very aware that this is going to be new and experimental for everyone! Each family will need to find a way forward that works for both themselves and their children. We are definitely not here to tell you what to do; these are suggestions. This is a time of unprecedented stress and worry; there will be some days where nothing gets done. That's ok. Please be kind to yourselves.
If you are unsure about anything - please ask. Miss Major and I are more than happy to answer any queries. Some children will be incredibly excited about the prospect of home learning and be able to follow a set routine, similar to school. Others will flourish under a more fluid structure and they will enjoy the time to be even more creative and hands on.
Children should have logins for all suggested websites. If not, please email the class teacher and we will endeavour to solve this. Our emails are: email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
Similarly, if parents or children need support with some work or would like feedback/next steps or just a chat, then please get in contact. We are happy to help as much as possible.
Mrs Williams and Miss Major
