Dear All,

Well, two weeks away from each other and I´ve received so many lovely comments about the work and efforts of your children, and your appreciation of our teachers ́ hard work and dedication to the children so thank you very much for your positive feedback.☺
I think I said it in one of my class emails that it is so difficult for teachers when they don't see the children´s little faces looking back at them!

We all know that some children work faster than others, some are more motivated to do their jobs than others, some need a bit of help, some need a lot of help, some need no help.

I think some parents are worried that we are giving too much, or that some things are too difficult. Some are worried because parents also need to work from home so can´t spend the time they would like. Or have more than one child to help.Some are worried because they are not teachers! PLEASE DON'T WORRY!

In my opinion it is important for the children to have a routine, so just do what you can, or what your child is capable of. If your child (or you!) is tired one day, save some of the work to do at the weekend? But each day why not try to do at least one Maths activity, one Literacy, one topic/craft activity and some exercise?
We are aware that some people do not have printers, but please just do what you can. Doing something is better than doing nothing!
Some parents are regularly sending photos of their child's work. If this is too stressful, save it up for when we get back.
