This booklet is being shared to support the smooth transition back to our school building from the 12th of August 2020. We know that you will have many questions about what this will look like and I hope that this document will provide you with answers to these questions.
These arrangements will only be in place for as long as is required and will be reviewed on an ongoing basis. Where we discover that something is not quite working, we will find a solution and communicate that with our children and with you.
As we begin June we find ourselves planning and developing ways to do some of the events that we usually have at this time of the year. We are living our Campie values of creativity and challenge! Despite our building being closed we want to make this time of transition as reassuring and as special as it always is and we will do all we can to achieve that.
We have had another busy week in our virtual classrooms and it has been so exciting to see those of you who were able to join us for a Google Meet. Don’t worry if you were not able to join us this time, there will be more next week . . . and if you are yet to have your first meeting, I hope you enjoy it. I’m trying to pop into as many Meets as I can to see you all.
This week we have a number of different updates:
Head Teacher update
Edition 2 of our survey response
Google Meet Placemat
Part 1 of our Language of Learning Campie Dictionary
I hope you find the information helpful.
Daily updates and signposting to useful information and advice is also posted on our Twitter page. Link to Twitter
While our building is closed we continue to develop ways to keep our connections with one another strong. Collaborating in our virtual classroom has been a key approach to maintaining our links with one another. Our next step is to make use of Google Meet. Each class will have their first meeting next week. (Week beginning 25.5.20)
We want this to be a positive, happy experience for all. Please see the guidance issued today.
Another week has gone by in our virtual school. Each week we are continuing to learn ways to best support home learning. The information you shared in our survey has been fantastic. It has let us know what is going well and what we need to do to improve ways of connecting with our community at this time.
Thank you for all your contributions and support.
It is National Thank a Teacher day today. I would like to express my deep gratitude to every one of our Campie Team. Despite having their own challenges of life during lockdown; their own families and friends to care for, working from home arrangements , battling with wi-fi connections etc their commitment to supporting our children has been unwavering. They have been resilient, creative, nurturing and respectful at all times. I am proud to be part of their team. Team Campie is truly deserving of my thanks.
