I hope you are all well and keeping safe. It has been quite the week but I have everything crossed that we will return to normal very soon especially as we have many exciting learning experiences scheduled for next week. All the scheduled trips have taken a huge amount of effort to organise. So let's hope for good news!
The school values have certainly been in force this week as we show 'Ako Tahi' - we are all learning together. 'Manaakitanga' - so important to show kindness and respect to each other. Through Whanaungatanga positive relationships continue to be built to ensure that we feel connected to each other through Google Meets.
As mentioned in my email earlier in the week there are many options available for learning at home.
Each year level has created a hard copy learning pack, this has worksheets and activities that your child(ren) can do at home without going online. This has been sent electronically or is available from the office between 1.30 pm-2.30 pm until we return to Alert Level 2. New packs will be available on Monday if we continue.
Remote learning has been created by the classroom teacher, and this looks quite different at each year level with videos, Google Classroom etc.
Google Meets are an opportunity for the children to connect with their friends and classroom teacher
The school website has a range of resources
Just do your own thing!
I can't emphasize enough that we know each household has different circumstances and commitments so please just do what you can, that works for you.
Robyn Cochrane and Hannah Smellie are running the bubble class and I would like to thank them for all the work they have done this week to ensure the children have settled and continued with their learning.
I will continue to update you with any new information and guidelines as we change between Alert Levels. I thank you for all the positive comments and emails I have received over the course of the week. It is appreciated.
