Dear Parents and Carers,
NEW LEARNING PROJECTS – STARTING FROM MONDAY
We hope you are all keeping safe and well, and that you and your families are beginning to adjust to new ways of working.
As you are aware, this week we provided our children with home learning packs full of activities to keep children busy learning during the first week of school closures. We are now in a position to share with you what we will be doing going forward to continue to support children’s learning.
Our new Learning Projects are similar to POWer projects and will be completed by children across the Trust, whether they are working at home, or in school-based childcare. They have been planned to be suitable for the different age groups across our schools and have two key parts:
Daily Learning Tasks
The daily learning tasks cover things we feel are essential for our children to do every day – things like exercise, reading, maths facts and playtime. The daily learning task sheet provides suggestions for the sorts of things your children can do each day for each category. These tasks will remain the same each week.
Weekly Learning Tasks
Each week, two new topic-based Learning Task sheets will be available, full of fun and engaging learning activities for children to complete. Your child(ren) will be able to choose which topic they would like to focus on – they do not need to do both.
Activities are organised into four categories:
We are recommending that, in addition to their daily tasks, children complete 8 or more of the weekly learning tasks each week.
The first two exciting topics for next week are:
Learning Tasks have been planned to be a mixture of activities your children can ‘get on with’ independently and some which may require more adult support. Adult-support activities are bold and underlined on the project sheets. We have planned tasks which r equire minimal resources and that are easy to complete at home.
All Learning Project material will be available on Class Dojo and your school’s website on Fridays at 3:00p.m. ready for the next week.
What you need to do:
A: Uploaded to Dojo
B: Placed into a folder at home
C: Both of these.
All work will be shared and celebrated with teachers once we return to school.
Please post any questions you may have on your Class Dojo page, and one of our team will get back to you as soon as they can.
We thank you for your continued support.
