Spring News Week 3 January 19th

Good morning everyone,
I am sorry if the link to our story session did not work or if you had the wrong key stage story. I am not sure what happened!! I have added the correct links for yesterday if you get chance to look. For Key Stage 2 children the next chapter of Prince Caspian is also there.

Weekly online engagement chart.

This will be uploaded tomorrow- keep up the good work everyone.

 5 TP and a shout out to Jacob Staniland for working hard at home. I have received lots of pictures from his mum of the work he has completed.
 5TP and a shout out to Thomas Cutts for hard work during our live lessons and completing all the online work set.
 5TP and a shout out to Ellis Law for hard work during our live lessons and having an enthusiastic approach to learning.


Weekly well being calls.

We have been asked to contact all parents on a weekly basis so that we know that you are well and also so that any concerns can be shared. Please be aware that one of your child’s class team will be in touch by telephone at some point this week.

Earn Team Points by sharing your work.

Please continue to share you work with your teachers via Purple Mash, email or the school Facebook page. Children will be awarded 10 Team points for every piece of work shared.

School Reading Challenge

Children reading at home 4 times each week will earn 1 sticker on their chart. Please keep a record at  home and on the children’s return I will be ready to open the School Council shop.

More learning opportunities

Learn about weather forecasting.

I hope you have a good day.

Safeguarding for our online teaching sessions.
• All sessions on Teams will have two members of staff (one lead, one support) present at all times and the full session will be recorded. This means that children can watch the recording again to help them with their follow up work.
 • Web-cameras/Video/Microphones should be turned on for students during taking the register and if they have a question, but for the remainder of time, webcameras/video/Microphones for students should be turned off. This will be managed and monitored by the supporting member of staff.
• The ‘chat’ function will be disabled for 1-1 use and is not to be used outside of the public forum and may only be used in group meeting sessions for asking questions. This will be managed by the supervisors on the call.
Joining  TEAM sessions 
Open TEAMS and find your class team (below is a screen shot of Pumas class.)
On the first page you will see the meeting – the part highlighted in purple- click  on this.


This will then take you to the meeting page which looks like this.



Stage 2 Monday January 11th until February 1/2 term holiday.

Please follow the link to your child’s class page where we will upload the weekly timetable (uploaded each Friday.)

This will contain the links to the live sessions with your child’s teacher. We will be monitoring engagement with the online learning making sure that all children are keeping up with their school work.

The timetable will include links to daily English and Maths lessons with your class teacher as well as a story/ class novel session.

The final session of the day will be a chance to share work and receive feedback. You can also share your child’s work via Purple Mash, via Facebook or via email to Castle admin.

All lessons with your teacher will be accessed via Microsoft Teams. Below are some leaflets which will support you with this.

Our home learning also incorporates the use of our  online learning platforms.

There will also be links to support independent learning and research into the curriculum theme for the term.

We will be in contact if you have told us that you do not have access to a computer/tablet. If you have difficulties accessing learning virtually please let us know and together we can work out how to support you.
