I hope you all had a restful Easter break and welcome to our very first remote summer term!
We’ve all had to adapt to new ways of working, so I wanted to take the opportunity to say what an amazing job you’re doing supporting your child’s wellbeing and learning during this time.
It’s definitely been a strange and challenging time, so it’s ok if you and your child feel wobbly and worried at the moment. We’re here for you every step of the way as we figure this all out together. Remember, if you have any concerns about helping your child learn or you need any other support from the school, please let us know by emailing the school at firstname.lastname@example.org or completing a message form on your child’s class page on our website (ryedene.essex.sch.uk) or using the message facility on Google Classroom.
We miss the children very much, but we must follow the government’s guidance to keep everyone in our community safe. So, we’re carrying on with providing school provision for the children of key workers and vulnerable children and engaging with remote working.
But just because we’re not all in the same building, doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun together! Your children will have lots of activities they can get stuck into over the summer term – so keep a close eye on your child’s Google Classroom, which you should have received details about and their class page on our website.
We also love seeing the children’s fantastic learning at home – anything they have made or created please send us a photograph so we can showcase it on the website.
We can’t say yet when we’ll be able to open the school fully, but rest assured that we’ll continue doing our utmost to keep your child learning and our school community connected.
Let’s get cracking with our Summer term!
Mrs T. Dennis
