Can we first say a massive well done to you all, children and parents, for taking on board the home learning activities over the past couple of weeks. We are so proud of you all with how you adapted to the changes during this current period. If you haven’t already done so, please join our Class Dojo blog for daily interactions from the both of us. Also, if you know someone that has not joined yet, please do encourage them to do so. The messaging app allows you to ask questions, share work or just to pop in and say hi every now and then.
We have decided to pop up some fun Easter and well being activities over the next couple of weeks. These are there if you would like to use them. Home learning will resume on the week beginning 20th April.
Hope you are all safe and well,
Miss Blackford and Miss Handley
If you fancy taking part in some physical activities at home have a look at ‘Real PE’. The school uses these resources and now the company have offered parents an opportunity to try some of the activities at home during school closures.
It’s really simple:
The website address is: home.jasmineactive.com
Parent email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Then choose which activity you would like the children to take part in. There are a variety of activities you can do throughout the day if you wish.
If you log onto facebook and join their closed group-you can then post photos of you and the family taking part in these activities. They have weekly competitions with winners announced on their facebook page. There are all sorts of different prizes so have a go!
