Dear Parents and Carers,
Let me start by thanking you all for your ongoing support with your children’s learning. The activities that you are doing will contribute to their life learning and will help them to adjust back into school life when the time comes.
As you know, schools are preparing to open again to a large number of pupils but we will still be providing home learning for those of you who at this time feel you need to continue at home or you need to because of a vulnerable person in the family.
In order to make this home learning easier we are moving to use a google platform called Google Classroom. This allows us to interact with the children’s learning in a much more dynamic way. We will be able to send links and work that can be completed directly online and you will be able to send it back into us to for the teachers to see it.
Steps to follow
- Download an app (Google Classroom) through either apple or google play called google classroom – it’s free.
- We will text your child’s login for google classroom. Login and you will have access to the online activities assigned for your classroom.
- Teachers will start to upload work from this Friday 5th (It will also continue on the website for the week of 8th June).
- Complete work, take a photo and upload it (if you want to so that your teacher can see it)
We will try to ensure that work can be completed independently by the children and we do not expect parents to ‘teach’ any new learning. If parents wish the children to complete further learning they can choose appropriate activities from our projects which will be sent out weekly via our school website. We recommend for children to read as many books as possible, which is a very are worthwhile learning experience. We will also continue to send out learning opportunities via our twitter account @stprescot. There is also a link to lots of free resources set out by the Department for Education DFE Websites
