At Sitwell, we recognise that children’s learning during this academic year may continue to face disruptions due to the country’s ongoing response to the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result, we have tried to prepare for every eventuality in the effort of minimising any disruptions as much as possible. In the event of your child having to self-isolate, or a national lockdown, it is important that their education continues providing they are well enough.
Any remote learning at Sitwell will continue to be delivered daily through Google Classroom where we will teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school, wherever possible and appropriate. However, so that remote learning can start immediately, below are two days of remote learning for each year group. It might be that our office staff direct your child to this learning for 1-2 days while their class teacher works on adapting and preparing any classroom learning for Google Classroom.
As these initial activities are not set on Google Classroom, we invite your child to bring in any of this learning on their return to school, so that we can celebrate your child’s achievements as well as provide any feedback on their learning. We hope that these resources allow for a smooth transition between school and remote learning, and thank you for your support during these challenging times.
