Dear Parents/carers,

We hope that you are safe and well. 

Following the success of the past 'Live Good Work' assemblies, we will be holding another this coming Thursday (11th February) please see the timings below. Your child's class teacher will post on your child's Team page with a link to the meeting. You will need to click on this link, then click on '+Add to Calendar' (top left) to accept your invitation to the assembly.

We are aware that a few children/parents had issues. Please follow this troubleshooting guide (https://confluence.uconn.edu/ikb/communication-and-collaboration/office-365/microsoft-teams/troubleshooting-microsoft-teams/i-can-t-hear-others-in-teams) and hopefully any issues will be resolved for this week.

Year 3-Year 6 will also be delivering their 'live' spelling tests again this week - look out for the link.

Year 5/6 will be delivering a 'live' mental maths quiz via TEAMS - look out for the link!  This is an exciting opportunity for 5/6 to challenge their mental maths ability!

Rec and KS1 will have 'Story time live' on TEAMS - look out for the link.  It will be a lovely opportunity for their teacher to share one of their favourite stories with the children.

By clicking the link you are agreeing to the following:

Virtual/Online & Remote Learning

I agree to the following when delivering virtual/live learning, especially where webcams are involved:

  • No 1:1s, groups only
  • Staff and children must wear suitable clothing, as should anyone else in the household.
  • Any computers used should be in appropriate areas, for example, not in bedrooms; and the background should be blurred.
  • Live learning should be kept to a reasonable length of time, or the streaming may prevent the family 'getting on' with their day.
  • Language must be professional and appropriate, including any family members in the background.
  • Staff must only use platforms provided by Blanford Mere Primary School to communicate with pupils

The following times have been set to enable siblings, who are in different classes, to be involved in the assemblies at different times.  Please see the timetable below.

Key worker children attending school

For key worker and vulnerable children who are attending school, can I ask that you access the school website, click on the 'Forms' pencil, 'Good Work Consent Form - Key Workers' - this allows teachers to know if you consent to your child's face being shared with their classmates on a short 'live' stream, this will be supervised by teachers in school.  If you have consented previously, there is no need to agree again.

We are looking forward to a fantastic time, celebrating the achievements of those children in school and those accessing remote education.

Regards

Mrs Miller and Miss Stanton
