Home Learning In Action
Our Home Learning platform has become popular this week. The year 5 site has recorded over 3,500 visits to the page with Wednesday 25th March being the busy day for access with peak times being from 10 am - 1 pm. The most common platform for accessing the Learning Resource Center (LRC) has been the desktop computer with the 'Earthquakes Differentiated Reading Comprehension Activity' being the most popular with 191 views. Our staff are busy working on providing these bespoke resources, tailored around the classroom curriculum. The LRC will be uploaded with the resources for week 2 on Monday 30th March. For First & Middle School a support page can be on our website here. Nursery, Pre School and Reception Classes can access their weekly activities from our website page here. If you have any photographs of children working we would love to see these, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org where we will include as many as possible on our website page available here.
"I would like to thank all the staff and teachers for their hard work at this difficult time. By continuing coming into school you have put the needs of the children before your own need to self isolate and for this we are all truly grateful.
Thank you for all that you do for our children." Visit our website page for more lovely comments.
Deep Cleaning Our cleaning team have started the process of a thorough deep clean of the school. Classroom by classroom, we have cleaned and sanitized each room. All communal areas, corridors and toilets are to be sanitized, ensuring we are ready for when the school reopens.
Gardening Before the children left Loreto they planted a range of seeds and these have started to come into fruition. Izzy's hydroponics test chamber has started to grow it's first seedling, great news as this is grown without soil and hydrated with condensation. The peas, broccoli and garlic have all grown well with other vegetables like potatoes growing well under ground. Mr Devincenzi-Clemens will be keeping an eye on the crops whilst the school is closed.
Using Technology to Support The GHA Even our 3D Printer has been isolated but has been put to good use! We have been delighted to support the GHA by manufacturing plastic face shields on our 3D printer.
The 3D printer creates the headband part of the face shield, we will then send this to the GHA so they can attach the clear face shield.
With Prior Park manufacturing the same on their 3D Printer, we aim to help manufacture extra resources for our front line key workers.
