Dear Parents and Carers,
Learning projects have been created to ensure that your child continues to benefit from opportunities to learn whilst the school is closed as part of the Government’s initiative to restrict the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We urge you to place an expectation on your child that they complete the tasks in the learning project each day and across the week to ensure that they have the best chance of retaining what they have learned over the course of this academic year.
In order for the school to produce the learning projects in a period of illness across the country, and taking into account that our own staff may become affected, we decided that the projects would be aimed at wider age groups than the specific year your child attends at school. We are doing this to ensure that we can produce the highest quality of home learning opportunities which cater for the majority of children. As with all generic work set there are certain elements that your child may find too easy or too hard - if this is the case we ask that you encourage the child to have a go at the element they are finding too hard and then, if needs be, move on to a different task. Where a child finds the work too easy then they have the option of visiting the school website and trying an older ‘learning project’ although we only ask you do this if the work consistently proves to be too easy.
The location of the learning project can be found by visiting our school website selecting the tab marked ‘Learning project’ displayed at the top of the page. Once you have clicked on the tab you will see learning projects listed under each age group. There is also an ‘Additional resources’ link, this provides a link to many additional websites and materials you may choose to look at and use. For the pupils who have informed us that they do not have a device at home, we will send a learning pack home today that they can work through. Please also use materials in your child’s planner for further support at home.
Your child will also be able to log in to RM Unify via the school website under the ‘Children’s’ tab for further resources. All pupils in Key Stage Two will know their name and password, for EYFS and Key Stage One pupils this can be found on the sticker in your child’s planner. The school email address will remain open if you have any specific queries that we will view periodically.
