Wednesday - 1st April.
I hope that you are all doing ok at home, and I have been blown away, in a positive way, by the quality of the work sent through to me, so thank you all for that. If it takes a little longer than one day, or you don't get through that many pieces of work, that is ok - it's about what is right for your family.
If they are of any use, please do watch the YouTube channel 'Teaching from afar' - possibly more to poke fun at me rather than actually learn from.
Monday 30th March.
To all the members of Swallow class (including adults),
I hope that you managed to relax a little before the start of a new week. Thank you again for all the hard work you have been putting in to your home learning so far, and I look forward to seeing more of it this week. Congratulations to those of you who received Golden Moments and I have my fingers crossed that there will be more this week!
I have also uploaded the latest copies of First News in case any of you would like to read them over the next few days,
Missing all of you,
Thursday 26th March - 6.34pm.
To all of Swallow class,
I hope that you've all coped ok with the first week of a very different style of schooling. From the work I've seen so far, you, your parents and your carers are all doing a fabulous job and I've been elated each time I've recieved positive feedback about the work you've been doing, what you've been up to with your family and pictures of your achievements. You are an excellent class, and I do miss you all.
If there is anything you would like me to do differently for next week, then please do let me know so that I can make the on-line teaching as effective as possible.
Thank you again, and I'm glad to hear that you're looking after each other,
Just a quick adendum for today following a virtual staff meeting that we had.
I have now put a suggested timetable, calculation policy, maths curriculum, writing and reading expectations on the resources section of the class page. There is no pressure to adhere to what is set out there, but some of you may find it of use.
I will also put the letter for each day and then the day's learning in the correct section. This section will be reserved for notices.
Hopefully this will make it a little easier to navigate and apologies for my jumbled way of presenting it previously,
I hope that you are all coping with what has been a fairly drastic change of circumstances. I will aim to put up all learning for the next day onto the website by the evening before. That way, if there are any queries, then they can be answered by the morning and allow you the greatest degree of flexibility.
I am exploring videos and more interactive learning options, but these may take a little time to get up and running. Also, please do provide any feedback so that I can make the learning as effective as possible.
Best wishes, and I look forward to receiving e-mails from you soon,
