Dear Parents & Carers of Year 6 children,
Tomorrow morning, we will welcome key worker and vulnerable children only and the rest of Year 6 will need to be accessing remote learning via Teams.
Timetable for this week:
The expectation for all children working from home is that they access the individual Teams meetings at the timings above to be taught live by Miss Warren. These meetings will be visible in the child’s calendar on Teams for them to access at the right time.
Your child will be taught by a teacher via Teams. During each meeting, your child will receive teacher input and strategies for them to follow and take part in. After this, your child will need to access their One Note area to complete tasks related to the teacher input. As they do this, the children and the teacher will remain on the meeting and have the opportunity to ask questions. Each meeting will be recorded for them to access again afterwards too.
The teacher will mark the work on One Note between 3.00- 4.00pm. Your child will receive feedback so please ensure the work has been completed and they review it at the beginning of the next day.
Key worker and vulnerable children expectations
Key worker and vulnerable children will arrive at school at 8.40am at the same gate before and will receive the same teacher input as the children working from home. The day will end at 3.00pm and they need to be collected from the same gate as before. All children working in school will work in books and will not be required to wear school uniform. These children will also need to come to school in PE kit on the normal PE days.
Please can you ensure that your child can access Teams and One Note and get in touch if you have any problems (email addresses below). Please be reassured that all children have been shown how to access Teams in preparation for these circumstances and their log in details are stapled to the back of their purple homework books.

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your understanding and ongoing support in helping us to manage this unprecedented situation. We really have spent a long time putting together a manageable plan to allow every child’s education to continue in the best possible way.
