Dear Stamfordham Families,
We appreciate that your child may have periods of time away from school due to the current COVID 19 pandemic. We successfully used Tapestry to communicate our learning tasks and challenges for our Nursery and Reception pupils from March 2020 for pupils who did not attend school.
In Years 1-6, we used a mixed approach setting work using Parentamil accounts, Class DOJO and also providing paper based activities and work.
From September 2020 our contingency plan is for classes to follow Oak National Academy; we will also be providing workbooks so that can be used as homework and also used if school closure or a blended learning approach is needed - https://www.thenational.academy -
Dear Stamfordham Families,
Please find links to our 14 day quarantine packs which you may use. We are updating and changing them as required.
Please also follow online learning https://classroom.thenational.academy/schedule-by-year and any further activities as directed by your class teacher.
Please note these learning packs are recommended by the government and registering to some websites may be required. however, there is no charge and you will not be asked for your card details.
In Early Years we use Tapestry to communicate with families and share work. There are lots of exciting challenges for the children to do if they happen to be absent. If you have log in issues please let Mrs Tait or Mrs Mortimer know and they will help rectify the problem. We use Class DOJO in all other years to stay in touch.
