In the event of school closure

The teachers and staff have prepared a range of activities to support your child with their learning journey that would otherwise take place in school. To access this learning, click on your child’s class page where you will find set tasks for each week.

Whilst the tasks may vary, there will always be maths, spelling, reading and writing activities with some linked to topic work.

An exercise book has been sent home with your child. Feel free to annotate, comment and stick work into this book and we can use it at school as a record of the work completed

We understand that this situation may be unsettling for some children so have attached the following powerpoint that explains COVID-19 in simplistic terms, you may wish to share this with your child:

Coronavirus (1)

We would like to take the opportunity to say thank you for your ongoing support in this period of uncertainty. Please be reassured that we will keep you informed of any changes and developments.

Hopefully, this situation will be short term and we can return to our normal school routine as soon as possible.

Kindest regards

LSJ Team

Google Meet

Each morning the children will be invited to join a Google Meet session with their teacher and Teaching Assistant. This session is vitally important for the staff to check that the children are all well and managing the work set, and also for the children as this period of time with no contact with peers will be very difficult for them. This session gives them the opportunity to see their classmates and have at least a little normality to their day. Below is a code of conduct that each child should follow when attending each Meet.

USING XBOX OR A PLAYSTATION TO ACCESS REMOTE LEARNING

If you have either a PlayStation or Xbox at home you can use them to get onto Google Classroom or other internet application and websites:

Xbox

  • Plug a keyboard into the Xbox USB slot.
  • Go to my games and apps.
  • Find and select Microsoft Edge.
  • Navigate to your online learning platform.

PlayStation

  • Identify the PlayStation internet browser icon (WWW with dots around it).
  • Press the PlayStation logo on the controller.
  • Go to the library and find options for games and applications.
  • Go to applications and you will find the internet browser.
  • Navigate to your online learning platform and log in as usual.

You will be able to access Google on any device that connects to the internet and there are apps for Classroom, Drive and Docs that can be downloaded onto Android and Apple devices too.

If you are not able to do the work online, you can still work with pen and paper and photograph it and either email to the class teachers or upload it on Google Classroom.
