Easter Home Learning
We have been learning fast about the challenges and opportunities of ‘home learning’, just as you, as parents/carers, have at home. Thank you for all your patience and perseverance in supporting your children as best you can. Your feedback has been very positive, and your kind words of thanks and support have been passed on to the CtK team.
We are very realistic that ‘one size’ is never going to fit all, with students having varying amounts of access to IT and of different abilities, in being able to adapt to a very new way of learning.
Please can we reassure parents/carers that we are very aware of this, and our first priority at this time is the wellbeing of all family members (not just the children!). We will do everything we can to work with you, and please do not hesitate to get in touch (usually through your child’s teacher or the school email) if you need any support. Of course we want to support as much engagement as possible in the work set, but please do not feel anxious if, for entirely understandable reasons, your child has not been able to complete everything.
The Easter Break
We feel that it is really important to preserve the sense of the Easter holidays. Teaching staff will generally not be setting daily work on the class blogs and Google Classroom over the next fortnight but they will be setting homework, in the form of a project or a few small tasks.
We have, however, put together a significant number of web links to support additional learning at home during the holidays.
