Working from Home
In these strange times, we have all been on a steep learning curve. Each day, we learn more about how we can support each other and those around us in our St Michael's family and the wider community. Teachers have been working hard to put together a range of resources for each year group throughout lockdown and in case groups need to be isolated in the future. Remember, just because you might not be able to be in school for a time, it doesn't mean that education needs to stop. However, be flexible - look around you and what can be learned within your own environment, for example, this is a fantastic opportunity for you to learn new and exciting skills, e.g:
- Sewing, knitting, cooking, baking, gardening, helping with household chores.
- Learning to play a musical instrument (it could be singing or playing the spoons!)
- Writing a daily journal about what you do and what's going on around you - you can keep this and share it with your future children and grandchildren - maybe illustrate it too!
- Read, read, read and read some more.
- Play board games; do a jigsaw; play card games.
- Create your own piece of art. Take a photo and we'll find a way to create our very own St Michael's Art Gallery.
- Mindfulness: there are lots of websites and videos out there for this.
- Keep fit: there are videos attached within each year group.
If a whole year group need to isolate, ten your teachers will switch back to Google Classrooms as a way of teaching and collecting work. If just one or two children need to isolate, then teachers will phone and help you to sort out your timetable and work will be set either through your year group pages or through Google Classrooms.
Good news! Literacy Toolbox (otherwise known as Eddie Carron) can now be accessed at home to support Reading and Comprehension. Enjoy!
