School Update- Monday 11th May
Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope you and all your family members continue to stay safe and well and manage to enjoy the VE Anniversary Bank Holiday on Friday.
Last night, the Prime Minister indicated that the Government believes it is in a position to begin a phased re-opening of schools from 1st June. This phased re-opening will start with pupils in Reception class, Year 1 and Year 6. All schools are waiting to receive more information from the Government and clear guidance on how this will be managed to ensure the safety of the children and everyone in the school community. We will share this guidance with you as soon as we know more.
Just a reminder that the recommended National Oak Academy online lessons are available for parents and children to access by 9:00am every Monday. The five Literacy and Maths lessons for the week are available from the beginning of the week and previous weeks lessons are also still available for parents and children to access. The daily BBC Bitesize Literacy and Maths lessons for each year group and YouTube Phonics lessons are also available at the beginning of each day.
The weekly class letter and other home learning resources are also posted on the website as close to 9.00am as possible each Monday. These resources include at least five other suggested lessons for subjects such as RE, Science, History and Geography, Art and Technology or Music and we recommend parents choose one of these lessons to do each day in addition to Literacy and Maths.
If you have been collecting paper learning packs for your child to work on at home, please let the school office know if you need further resources. Please also contact us by phone or email if you have any queries about your child’s learning or you would like to share their work. It has been lovely to have had so many families email us to share what they have been doing together at home.
We hope you all have a good week and wrap up warm!
From everyone at St. Dominic’s
