Remote and Flexible Learning

Dear Parents,

As you are aware, due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we will be moving into remote learning (online) until it is deemed safe to return.  During this time of uncertainty, the Year 5 team would like you to know that we will be continuing to offer educational plans, activities, and assessments for students to work on at home.  Here is a brief summary of what you may expect.

  1. All work will be done online which means there will be no hard copies (paper copies) distributed to the students effective week 3. Each day, students will be going into the school Compass accounts or Google Classroom to retrieve their lessons. They will be watching video lessons that have been created by the teachers along with that complete activities online or answer them in their exercise books that were given to them at the end of Term 1 as we also understand the importance of limiting screen time.
  2. We will all be available from 9:00am-3.15pm to answer questions and respond to emails, etc.
  3. We need your support with the remote learning and ask that you view the lessons on compass. In the event that something may not be clear, please do not hesitate to contact us directly through compass for clarifications or alternatively please call the school mobile on 0437 911 830.

Additionally, here are the specific things we have in mind starting 27th April. This is what the students will be doing each week.

5 *Literacy sessions

5 *Numeracy sessions

5 *30min physical activity sessions

6 *Integrated studies /Journal writing sessions

1 *PE session

1 *Art session

1*Music session

Because this is brand new territory for all of us, we are expecting there will be glitches along the way.  We ask that you are patient as we continue to improve our remote learning.  Please know and understand that, as your children’s teachers, we will be working hard behind the scenes to make this as beneficial and smooth as possible.  We look forward to working with you as we all tackle this challenge.

Sincerely,

Miss White, Mr Duncan and Mrs Dominguez
