Thank you to all of the parents who are home schooling – you are all doing a great job and the staff and I appreciate your efforts to keep children learning in this difficult time.
We are all missing you and the joy you bring to us every day but we all know we have to keep on doing this in order to keep all of us safe. Sadly this virus is amongst our community and our thoughts and prayers are with those families affected by it.
It is very important as weeks go by and our patience is tested to remember we are all at home because it is really dangerous and life threatening to be with other people or in public places at the moment. So, be strong and stay safe at home.
Remember to look at your child’s class page every day for the new school work that is being posted there.
Also, remember the advice I gave you before the holidays – set up a routine for each day Monday to Friday – set school work hours, get the children to wear uniform if it helps to get them into learning mode, then when they finish the work time they can change out of uniform so that it is clear when it is work time and when it is not.
I have been sent this book which you could share with your children to explain what the virus is and why everything is so different.
Also remember you have our phone numbers if you feel you need help with anything, please ring us, or even if you are feeling down and just need a chat, we are still here for you all with support and advice.
