Home learning will continue for the foreseeable future and this will now be, as far as possible, online. It is very difficult to be able to meet the individual needs of each child when setting work for home learning. In the classroom, the teachers are constantly assessing and reflecting on the children’s learning and this, unfortunately, is not possible. Every week, there will be a mathematics and writing task as well as learning linked to the wider curriculum.
I do appreciate that completing school work at home is not easy and that many of you yourselves are working at home. What the teachers are setting is the ideal for completion but, I do understand that every child’s situation is different. You know your child and your family situation the best, so please adapt expectations as necessary. If you feel you need more support, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
