I hope you all had a restful Easter break. Welcome to our very first remote summer term!
We’ve all had to adapt to new ways of working, so I wanted to take the opportunity to say what an amazing job you’re doing supporting your child’s wellbeing and learning during this time.
It’s definitely been a strange and challenging five weeks, so it’s fine if you and your child feel worried at the moment. We are here for you every step of the way as we figure this all out together. Remember, if you have any concerns about helping your child learn, or you need any other support from school, please let us know. The school phone line will be open every weekday 8:30am - 3:30pm.
We miss the children very much, but we must follow the Government’s guidance to keep everyone in our community safe.
But just because we’re not all in the same building, doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun together! Your children will have lots of activities they can get stuck into over the summer term – so keep a close eye on school’s Twitter page (@broadwayjuniors) which is updated daily with links to resources, wellbeing advice and some singalong videos. Your child’s teacher will update Purple Mash on a weekly basis with learning activities relating to different curriculum areas. Staff and children can also use this program to communicate safely with each other; this feature, in particular, has been very beneficial for lots of children. The Government are also promoting two online learning platforms – BBC Bitesize and Oak National Academy – both of which include lessons from qualified teachers and a range of age-specific lesson activities.
We love seeing the children’s fantastic learning at home – please keep sending in their work on Purple Mash and posting photos on Twitter.
Please also remember not to put pressure on yourself or your child to complete all the tasks set – they are simply there if you need them. Our Broadway Wish list includes many activities that we would love you to do with your child, as a parent, not a teacher.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any help or advice. We would all like to thank you for your continued support during these difficult times.
Mrs C. Johnson
