Homework: Homework will be set from this week for Years 1 - 6. Homework will be set on a Thursday and will need to be handed in / submitted electronically by the following Tuesday. Homework at our school will focus on basic skills and consolidation of class learning. From Year 4 onwards children will be using Google Classroom to complete activities from this week. If this presents any difficulties, e.g. that children have limited access to the internet and devices, please let your class teacher know. Children in Year 3 and below will be given paper based homework with a view to the whole school using Google Classroom as we move through the year.
Where possible, please check your child’s homework activities on a Thursday, so that anything that is not understood can be clarified with your child’s teacher on Friday. I would also advise to take a little and often approach to the activities rather than trying to complete them all in one sitting.
Parent Governor Elections: Unfortunately the deadline for nominations for our two vacant Parent Governor positions has passed and we have received no nominations. Being a governor at our school carries with it a minimum commitment of attendance at 5 meetings, spread throughout the academic year. Governors set the strategic direction of the school and have an important role ensuring that the school functions effectively. We will shortly be writing out asking for nominations and I would urge anyone who was thinking of being a governor to seek nomination. If you would like to talk to me about what the role entails in more detail, please let me know.
