Home learning week commencing 20th April
We hope that everyone has had a nice Easter and managed to enjoy some of the sunshine.
We will be continuing with online home learning again from Monday 20th April and new working grids and any accompanying activities will be posted on your child’s Hwb classroom shortly. They will also be sent out via ParentMail and uploaded to our “home school learning” pages on our website https://www.pontyclunprimary.org.uk/home-school-learning/
Where parents have had difficulty with internet accessible devices hard packs can be made available to collect from the school. These hard copies of the home working grids will be available for collection from outside the main school foyer on Monday 20thApril, in the morning ONLY, between 9 am and 10 am. This will then continue every Monday until further notice.
If you were isolating during the last final full week of school and have not yet picked up your child’s original home learning pack (Nursery, Reception and Year 1), these will also be available for pick up from the school on Monday 20th April between 9 am & 10 am.
Teachers will be available again from Monday, to view the work your child uploads and provide feedback directly to the child.
Any other work that your teacher has planned will be posted on to your child’s Hwb class pages, along with any discussions and announcements.
Again, activities are across the whole curriculum and your child can decide which activities they wish to complete every day. Obviously, your child does not work continuously in school throughout the day as there are opportunities for play and breaks. Please ensure your child still has opportunities for a break from their work. We appreciate that a lot of families circumstances have changed and people may be working from home and caring for others. Please do not worry if your child does not complete all activities on the grid as long as they are engaging in some home learning and keeping active. The main priority is that everyone continues to keep safe and well.
If you wish to contact staff if you have questions regarding the work, being able to access the learning, requiring hard copies of work, then please do so via their Hwbmail accounts. Teachers will respond at their earliest convenience.
If you have a technical issue or problems accessing the learning, can you please cc Mrs Hancock ( woollsS2@Hwbcymru.net) or Mrs Keeler ( Rutl-KeelC@Hwbcymru.net ) as well as they will be providing technical support.
Please continue to be aware that staff may become ill or have family members that require nursing and during these times may not be available for contact. Also, there is a very strong possibility that staff may be re-deployed to other front-line services and this too will impact on their availability. Where a member of staff is absent the other teacher in their year group will post the work to be completed but will not be able to mark the completed work. Under normal circumstances with staff absence, we would employ a supply teacher but this facility is not available under these circumstances.
We would like to thank you again for your continued patience and support at this difficult time.
Stay safe and well
