school closure update 29/04/2020

Bishop’s Primary Academy                                       Date: Wednesday 29th April 2020

Unfortunately, the school is closed to most children.             

Government advice remains that: ‘every child who can be cared for at home should be.’

Tomorrow the Archbishop of Canterbury will be leading an on line assembly for all school children. We will be sharing the link tomorrow.

From Monday, there will be learning packs available at school. These will be in addition to the activities posted on the website. The packs will be available in the main entrance, organised into year groups. Please ensure that you respect social distancing. There will be cones showing where to wait if there is a queue. There should only be one person in the entrance at any time. The packs should be collected during your daily exercise.

We continue to provide learning activities for all children. This week these can be found on our website:

https://www.bishop.norfolk.sch.uk/coronavirus-school-closure-weekly-work/

We feel that it is best that the children practise some basic activities every day:

  • Maths – counting and/or multiplication tables
  • A reading activity with an adult or older brother or sister
  • Practising spelling or phonics
  • A short writing activity
  • A physical activity

We feel that these revision activities are the most accessible and if the children make progress in these key areas while they are not in school it will be easier for us to help them to catch up when they do return to school.

Please do log into your class dojo and make comments as this is helpful for us to know how many children are engaging with the learning.

There are many resources being made available on the internet. We have already planned work for your children and would like the children to complete the work provided by the school.

However, there are some useful learning in these new resources so we are sharing the links if you would like to do some extra work with your child.
