School Closure Summer Term 2019/20
This is Week 10 (the worksheets will say Week 9 - because we didn't set work over half term)
Commences Monday 8th June 2020.
~80% Yr6 have returned to school and will have a different curriculum from that set on the website they will continue to work in their isolated bubbles and be taught by a teacher and an LSA.
The Yr6 pupils that are at home need to continue with the work set on the website. The work needs to be completed please.
We will no longer be able to print work unless an adult calls the school on Monday and comes in to collect it.
Guillemont Parent and Carers Certificates available for you to use - see 'Summer Term Additional Things'.
Mrs Waldron (SENCo) has a sheet that some might find helpful if your child(ren) finds organisation a problem. Click here. Its call 'Now Next'. Mrs Waldron has also produced a social story for children that are anxious about returning to school. Click here for a copy.
Mrs Helen Smith (ELSA) will be available by phone between 9am and 12pm every week day. Her priority will be for contact with the children she usually works with. If parents or carers require help, please contact Mrs Smith between 1pm and 3pm. The number to call is 07563384044. Please be patient and please only call at the appropriate time. With more than 100 children now in school, she will continue to be available but will also be calling children at school that need additional emotional support.
The school office is open for calls between 8am and 4.00pm from this week onwards. Please call 01252 666846. You can also leave a message or email: email@example.com
We have set work to ensure there is enough for everyone to do. There is an expectation that children attempt the work. It has been pitched at an approriate level. If you child is having difficulty, please call the school and ask for a message to be given to your child's class teacher. Most teachers are back in school from Monday and so will have less time to call children at home.
If you need timetable to help organise the day, we suggest you use the one published previously. For a copy, click here.

Every Friday we held an assembly to present certificates. We have modified the template so you [parents and carers] can use it if you wish. Click here for a copy. You can write whatever you wish, hopefully to motivate your child(ren).
With most teacher now back at school, calling home will be difficult. However, we will try to maintain contact - a different member of staff may try to call home. The school will endeavour to set MyMaths, Bug Club and Purple Mash work. This will be set by a teachers for a year group. Please encourage children to use the 'Class Blog' on Purple Mash as these will be checked by class teachers. It is likely that the Yr6 blogs will not be checked every week.
The teachers would appreciate you encouraging children to read for 10 minutes every day. It would be good if some one could read to them as well. Research shows that a male role model has a very positive effect! Additionally, children need to practice the times tables 1s to 12s. The Government expects all children to be able to recall multiplication facts up to 12 x12 by the end of Yr4. Children in Yr3 should know their 1s, 2s, 5s,10s, 4s, 8s and 3s by the end of the school year. The recommended sequence to learn times tables is: 2s, 5s, 10s, 4s, 8s, 3s, 6s, 9s, 7s, 11s and 12s. Remember that 1 x anything is itself and 0 x anything is always 0.
Mr Cooper suggests that that children work as independently as they can on a daily 'I See Maths' video (they know this scheme from school) before you start the set work on the left with them. Click here to get to the' I See Maths' website and then select the Y3 & Y4 or the Y5 & Y6 video for the day.
Class EW: Mrs Waldron and Miss Palmer would like the children to practice their language and vocabulary skills. Click here for the 'Speed Link' website. Click here for 'Thinking Talking' website.
