Weekly News Friday 29 January

Dear Parents and Carers


I am sure that many of you will have heard the news this week that all schools are not going to reopen until Monday 8th March at the earliest which is the start of the third week back after the half term.


Sadly, this means that we have at least four more school weeks of home-learning under the current arrangements. I know that this will be bitterly disappointing for many families and the children, but I hope that it provides some hope that there might be an end in sight, at least in terms of getting the children back into school.


If you need help or support with home learning or technology please do not hesitate to contact the school on our Home Learner email address: Home.learner@st-simon.kent.sch.uk. This mail is monitored and we do our best to respond to enquiries as quickly as possible.


Weekly Zoom Meetings


The weekly Zoom meetings we have set up for all classes are very popular as the children can get to see their friends and their teacher. The children are also given advice and feedback as a whole group on their home learning.


I apologise to Year 3 as I had to change the meeting details at the very last minute this week which meant that some children missed the meeting. I will do my best to avoid making further mistakes with the technology.
(Sadly I didn’t have computing lessons when I was at school due to the fact that we didn’t have computers!)


Mrs Williams is not available on Monday so there will be no Zoom meeting next week for Year 1. Home Learning will be posted as usual for Year 1 on Monday on the Year 1 class page on our website.

For safeguarding of all pupils, parents and carers are asked to refer to our protocol for attending online meetings. https://www.st-simon.kent.sch.uk/advice-for-successful-home-learning/. Please note pupils are asked to register their name when joining a meeting if we do not recognize a name your child may not be admitted to the meeting as we wish to deter unwanted visitors.

 

With best wishes
