Looking ahead, whilst the lockdown continues and school remains closed, we are working hard as a teaching team to refine the nature of home learning. Alongside Benenden, as 'Google Schools' we are now delighted to be ready to launch Google Classroom platforms for Year 1 - 4 (Year 5 & 6 are already starting to use it) from Monday 27th April. From that date, most learning will be managed through Google Classrooms.
Hippos will continue to use the Tapestry portal - the communication between school/home has been brilliant in both directions, may I add! Well done to you all!
As ever, we appreciate that family circumstances, priorities and ability to support learning at home vary tremendously, however we will do all we can to support and adapt our provision accordingly. As you can probably imagine this is quite a challenge and we are constantly reflecting on how we do this. We miss the children very much, but we must follow the government’s guidance to keep everyone in our community safe.
We can’t say yet when we’ll be able to open the school fully, but rest assured that we’ll continue doing our utmost to keep your child learning and our school community connected.
Thank you for your continued support.
