Dear parents and carers,
We hope you're all keeping safe and well. Please find below pages of work for: maths, English, science and Humanities and Arts. We have spoken to the children about the importance of continuing to learn over the period during which the school is closed. We have suggested they create their own daily timetable to allow for periods of work, exercise and of course fun.
You will see there is a page for completed work. If your child creates a PPT; types (or scans in) written work; or creates a video ... please do email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org and we will update the page so children can see what their classmates are doing.
We appreciate that this is an especially difficult year to have disrupted; many of the children have been asking about: the Yearbook, Leaver’s Disco, River Dart, Production … As I’m sure you appreciate, the last three of these are somewhat up in the air and will depend on how the next few weeks/months unfold. However we will produce a Yearbook, it may be a little different to previous years, but it will get done. Please, if we are not back in school after Easter, look out for an email asking for some input from the children for this (probably a short piece of writing (bio) on their time at PJS and a photo of them that they’d like used by their bio).
Discussion with the children included:
Do we have to do it? Yes, otherwise returning to school is going to be really difficult as your brain works like a muscle and needs exercising.
What else can we do? We discussed that reading and maths are the most important skills to keep practising and these are the skills that will be particularly important for the duration of their education.
What pages should we do in our booklets? You should work through both books. And remember the maths book contains all the objectives that your secondary school maths teachers will expect you to know.
