As you are aware, the school will be closed for pupils from Monday. (Please see the latest posts on the main school blog regarding Free-School Meals and Key Worker Provision: https://miltonofleysblog.com/2020/03/20/school-closure-update-2/)
To continue teaching and working with your child, all Milton of Leys Pupils will be connecting with their teacher by using Google for Education tools and Google Classroom! I have sent out individual pupil online learning details to your registered parent email address. Please help your child log in and access the online classroom when you can. Next week, Miss Mackenzie and I will be posting some simple activities to get everyone started.
My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org, please get in touch if you have any problems – no matter how big or small. I will try to help. I will have access to my emails during normal school hours and sometimes outwith.
Some children may find this difficult to understand why they cannot go to school or got out to play to see their friends, and the change may unsettle them. Please click the image below for a child-friendly resource which may help explain a little better.
Furthermore, as I have not been at school this week, I have written a message to the pupils…
Dear boys and girls,
You won’t be coming to school next week but that is O.K! Please remember all the things we have been learning about in school – most importantly – remember to be kind to everyone.
Try and help your family at home by doing lots of helpful jobs in the house and by listening to the adults around you. We will be doing some interesting activities online soon, and we will have lots of fun at school when you come back!
It is also really important that you keep washing your hands so that we don’t pass on illnesses to each other.
Take care, help to look after your family at home – and make sure you do lots of reading! We will be doing some fun online activities soon.
See you soon,
Miss Shimmield “
