I hope you've all had a lovely half term with your families and are now ready to work hard

again for the second part of the spring term.


Most of you will continue to work from home this half term. It's very important that you fully engage in

the remote learning tasks and work hard, so you can continue to make progress.



All your daily lessons will now be accessible through Microsoft Teams only.  They will be uploaded

onto your 'Team' (year group) page. A new set of assignments will be uploaded each morning, so you

will need to make sure you login daily to complete your work. From week beginning 22nd February,

there will be 3 assignments per day - Maths, English and either Science, Geography, PSHE or Art. 


Children who are in school will complete the same tasks as those at home. If you are only in school

some days and working at home on other days, you will still be expected to complete the daily tasks

when you are at home.


Virtual 'live lessons' will be held for the class on Monday (english) and Tuesday (maths).


In addition, every Wednesday & Thursday morning there will be virtual Maths and English group work

with Mrs Bours and Mrs Lord. (Obviously, children who are in school on these days will also attend). You

will each be sent an invite and time to attend both the class and the group sessions, and  registers will

be taken. The sessions will appear in your calendar in Microsoft Teams, and all you will need to do is

click on the meeting and JOIN. Any resources you need for the class or group work will be uploaded

onto Microsoft Teams.
