Mrs Wilding's Weekly Words Lent 11
I have just read my words from last year and I wish with all my heart that I could copy and paste them for the week that has just passed! Never in my wildest dreams did I foresee distance learning would feature in my weekly words. I often say to children that no matter how old we are it’s great to learn something new every day and that has certainly happened for all of us this week. For me, and my staff, it has all been technology based learning. We are spending the first hour or more of our working days at Google Hangouts meetings to redo the planning we had written for next term and generally catch up on things. None of us had done anything like this before and having delivered Chrome Books to all my ladies on Monday, Tuesday morning was spent getting used to these and learning how to 'hangout'! I move on to many more such meetings during the day whilst the Nursery staff research, read, create videos and try to work around their own children at home. A special well done goes to Miss Green and Mrs Freeman for their videos this week.
During the week commencing Monday 30th March the Nursery classes and Transition children were to continue learning about Easter with Nursery children also learning about the colour white. We emailed ideas for this earlier in the week and I hope that you are finding this helpful. I will use email to send information and useful links as I have started to do. My staff are always happy to hear news of your children so please keep in touch with them.
Cold cookery on Wednesday afternoon was to be making hot cross buns with bread mix and cinnamon. If you have the ingredients have a go but any cookery with your children is always a wonderful activity and they will learn so much making meals with you.
Term finishes on Wednesday 1 April.
I wish you all a peaceful Easter and I pray that everyone keeps safe, healthy and happy. I wish I could give everyone a hug!
