The Prime Minister announced today that we will move into Alert Level 2 at 11.59pm on Wednesday night and schools will open next week on Monday 18 May.
Later this week I will share more information with you about what school will look like at Alert Level 2.
Please note: In order for teachers to plan for Term 2 at school, and for everyone to have a break from the last few weeks of distance learning there will be a change to our distance learning programme this week.
Today and tomorrow: Usual lessons.
Wednesday to Friday: Teachers will be setting project type of learning for children at home to work on independently of their teacher. Teachers will not be online to work with children, but they may check in on Thursday.
We are having a Teacher Only Day at school on Wednesday. Teachers will be in meetings and setting up classes for Monday. On Thursday and Friday teachers will be working at home or at school on planning for Monday 18th. They will also be taking a breath and a break before they change from distance teaching to face to face teaching.
Please refrain from contacting teachers during this time if you can so they can focus on their work and take a bit of a break. We hope the project type learning programme will give you a break from structured home learning too.
We are looking forward to seeing the children again soon!
