Spring Term Newsletter January
Happy New Year to you all!
I hope you are all keeping safe and well despite the very difficult situation we are all facing. I am writing to inform you of the online work for your child/children during this period of partial School closure.
At Our Lady of Grace we are using Google Suite for Education as our learning platform. Many of our children will be familiar with this and know their log in details. If you experience any problems, please email your child’s class teacher. Also refer to the article on the school Website, ‘Parents’ Guide to Google Classroom’ which will help explain how to log in to this system so that you understand the process and can help your child if needed.
Each day our teaching staff will be delivering lessons to their classes which will include English, Maths, R.E. as well the foundation subjects such as Science, Geography etc. These lessons will be uploaded at 9.00am, 11.00am and 1:00pm. We feel it is best to give the structure of a school day for our children who are learning at home. It is essential that your child logs in and undertakes the work set just as they would if they were in School. The teachers will all be following our curriculum planned for the spring term. If your child is unable to join the lesson at the set time they will be able to access the work at a later time, but will miss the interaction with their class teacher.
Though the school’s success with Home Learning during the first lockdown was widely acknowledged, Home Learning is far from ideal. The teachers will endeavour to make the learning as accessible and as vibrant as they can, but over the coming weeks the children will continue to need your support and encouragement to ensure they do their very best.
Thank you all for your continued support.
