Dear Parents and Carers,
This was not the Spring Term we were hoping for at St. John's Mead. Whilst it is very sad that we are not all together in class at the moment, we know it is the best thing to do to keep us all safe. As the last school closure, we will be communicating with you mostly through Class Dojo. This time though, we will be holding regular meetings twice a day at 9:30am and 2pm on Microsoft Teams for all children to join. The links will be posted on class Dojo. This will give us a chance to see each other, to explain the learning for the day and share our work. Below are also some documents that you may find useful in supporting your child's learning this year.

White Rose Maths Home Learning lessons
During school closure, we received lots of positive feedback from parents and children using the White Rose video lessons and worksheets and we were really impressed with the progress made. We would therefore like to continue to use these resources if for any reason, during these unpredictable times, your child is not able to be in school but is well enough to work.
These structured lessons cover similar Maths learning we are doing in school and so are valuable in keeping your child on track for their Maths learning. The lessons are dated but may not exactly tie in with the objectives being covered on the day your child is not in school so please check with your child's class teacher if possible.
What is it?
Video lesson Each day has a short video lesson to watch, explaining the learning and asking questions to check understanding. These can be paused so children can go through at their own pace. However, they are quite compact lessons which makes them perfect for using at home.
Activity Books Each child will have been given a workbook in their remote learning pack which relates to each lesson. Your class teacher will be directing which lessons to do during school closure. If you have misplaced your book, you can print out these lessons from the PDF files below and children can answer on the sheet.
Answers The answers are included on a separate sheet to download so that children can check their learning and correct any errors or go through any misunderstandings. The children can share their work with their class teachers by uploading on to Dojo.
How do I access these resources?
The lesson videos are available to watch by clicking on the link above and selecting your child’s year group.
The activity sheets will be added below when required.
