Bubble A: Blended Home Learning Mat wb. 29.6.20
Dear Parents of Bubble A, Year 2 children,
I hope you have all had a good few days enjoying the lovely sunshine. What a funny old day today though with all that sunshine and heavy rain! I hope you can all make the most of the weekend - whatever the weather!
Please find attached the new format for sharing our home learning - it is called a 'blended learning mat'. Your child will now be in school on a Monday and Tuesday so I have included the timetable of what we will be doing on those days. There is also clear provision for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday shown on this timetable. Your child will need to continue to do their learning from home on these days and we will look forward to seeing weekly photos of the work that you complete (in particular the product of the English unit which is usually a writing task on a Friday). Typically there will be 3 further English and maths lessons plus some of the wider curriculum projects for this home learning. We hope that you will find this format straightforward and the expectations for those days very clear. This will lead nicely into the lessons that follow for the next Monday and will give your child the best chance of keeping up with their learning.
As I mentioned in the previous blog, I will now be responsible for responding to all the Bubble A emails and feedback; Mrs Payne will be providing feedback and communication to Bubble B children. We thought this would be an easier way to separate our work in terms of our job share and the work that will trickle through on different days.
If you haven't yet watched the video on the 'Welcome Back' blog with your child, please do so before returning next week. There is a lot of information on there and children in other year groups have found this very useful to help their child adjust to another changing situation. Also, our Rainbow Rules are very important. Although we will spend time familiarising ourselves with this on Monday morning (and indeed referring to these on a daily basis), it is crucial that your child has some understanding of this before they come back.
As always, do get in touch if you have any queries ahead of Monday.
Looking forward to Monday. Happy weekend! Mrs Jones.
