Bulletin – 5th March

Remote Learning

With our return to school next week in mind, we wanted to thank you for the engagement that you as families have shown with the different blended learning opportunities that have been shared with you. A combination of live lessons, recorded sessions, and the lessons provided through the daily virtual classrooms have seen a huge amount of work being shared by you.

Well done!

We will continue to give you weekly online safety posts. Please have a look at the attached update from National Online Safety which shares information about a multimedia messaging service called Signal.

This week on MyON, our children have read for a total of 5,060 minutes and have shared 983 books. Our top three year groups this week are; Year 3 with 953 minutes Year 1 with 914 minutes and Year 4 with 854 minutes. As always a big well done to our DPA families for developing our children’s love of reading. Don’t forget that after reading a book on MyON, you can give it a review to share your opinions and tell others about the books you have read!
