Your child will be invited to take part in a Zoom online lesson each week with their class teacher and the rest of their class. You will receive an invitation to this lesson via email the day before the lesson and a reminder via text 1 hour before the lesson is due to take place. Below is a link to the Online Safety section of the school website where you will be able to access a helpful how to guide and a video to help you access zoom. This link will also take you to our Zoom Acceptable Use Agreement, Remote Learning Policy and a copy of the consent form that you will be sent via a survey.
Whilst we are not at school work will be posted each Monday morning. If you have any questions regarding the tasks set, please email your child's class teacher using the following email firstname.lastname@example.org Teachers will endeavour to reply to every parent as soon as possible. These are unprecedented times so please continue to be patient if we are unable to respond immediately to any questions about home learning activities set. It is very important that you contact your class teacher at least once a week by Thursday morning to let them know you are OK and how your child is coping with the work set.
Thank you for your continuous support.

This week’s game: Phonics bloom – Yeti
When you start the game you will see the Yeti’s question at the top of the page. On one side of the Yeti is the word “Yes” and on the other side is the word “No.” The child reads the question by sounding out and blending the words, and then answers the question by clicking on either “yes” or “no.”.

Our reward system DoJo's
Children love being praised and encouraged and also enjoy a visual reminder of how well they are doing in class. Do Jo's are points that are counted on the interactive whiteboard. Do Jo's are rewarded for good work, effort, manners, excellent reading, being kind to others and many more.
Do Jo's can also be taken off the score if children don't follow school rules.
The challenging target is to receive 20 in a week. Children who achieve this get a reward from the treasure box !
