Week 2 plans for home learning

As you will know next week and the week after should have been the Easter holidays. However, Green Top will remain open to key worker families. Therefore there will still be people available to answer your calls, texts and emails Monday to Friday 8am-5pm.

We will be continuing with Google hangouts and Google classroom in the same way we have this week and there will still be work set for English and Maths skills lessons daily. In addition there will be fun activities to complete as part of the Expedition learning plans. It would be great to catch up with you using one of these tools each day. We encourage you to have some down time too but don’t want to lose your enthusiasm and engagement in the home learning success we’ve had this week. It is such an uncertain time and all staff, children and parents who’ve spoken to me have really valued the positive impact the communication with friends and staff has had on the Green Top children and wider community. Unfortunately, no one knows how long this period of enforced school closure will last for and lots of you have asked me for more ideas of things to do at home when you’re stuck in the house.

We’d like to hear from you as often as possible and therefore will continue with our safe and well checks next week. As always if you need to talk or have anything to ask we’re at the end of the phone, email or text service.

Hope to see you all in hangouts or google classroom next week, send your teachers/phase leaders lots of photos too and look out for next weeks challenge for feel good Friday.

It’s Still Thankful Thursday!

I cannot believe my class today, so much lovely work produced at home and sent my way.  And what has really made me proud is how supportive they are all being to each other, when someone is feeling low, if someone is stuck or when someone has had some beautiful work shared on our classroom.  You really are amazing little people.  Miss you all, Keep smiling.

Shout out to all who joined Miss Rooke and me on Hangouts this morning doing PE with Joe!  My legs will be sore in the morning, but if you want we can do it again!

Here is some work from today, mostly English, as I have been so impressed with the writing!

Thursday’s lovely work

Good Morning Class 12!

I was thinking so much last night about all your wonderful work that it gave me inspiration for my morning post.  I am so thankful to you all, being away from you as your teacher is quiet hard at times but all your lovely comments and hard work really do put such a smile on my face and brighten up my day.

So thank you for being you and thanks for being awesome!

Don’t forget to log onto classroom and find the Hangout link and the Joe Wick’s link – it’s PE time – see you at 9am with Miss Rooke 🙂
