PSHE Zoom

PSHE Zoom

This morning we had a PSHE zoom meeting about plastic pollution. You found out some facts that were really surprising about the amount of plastic pollution there is in the world. At the end you were asked to make a pledge. Please can you share the pledge you made.

Well done to all those who are completing their work on Google Classrooms. We are really pleased with the number of children who are logging in daily to the zoom meetings. We will be contacting all children / parents who we have not yet had any contact with in the next few days.

If you are unable to access Google Classrooms then this weeks paper-based work will be in the porch ready for collection by lunchtime on Monday. Please let us know if you are completing paper-based work. If you need to contact us then please do so on: s.patterson@heywithzion.oldham.sch.uk or j.light@heywithzion.oldham.sch.uk

How much remote learning should I be doing with my child?

How much remote learning should I be doing with my child?

It is for parents to manage their own context as best they can: the capacity for supporting children will vary hugely according to family circumstances.

The government requests that school provides, on average, 3 hours per day for infants and 4 hours per day for junior aged children (Year Three upwards).

Hence, teachers will typically set three activities a day- English, Maths and another subject, they will usually run a couple of zoom meetings which we urge parents to have their children attend, and please, please, encourage the children to cultivate a good reading habit. I would think 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes after lunch would be a good start.

Teachers I am sure will share lots of fun websites children could also explore to practise their multiplication tables and so on.
