Week 2   11-15 January

 

Well done everyone for all your hard work last week.  It certainly has been a learning curve for lots of us in many different ways.  You should be proud of yourselves and most of all you should thank the adults at home for helping you.  I have been impressed with how hard you have been working.  Let’s keep it going and give it 100% effort like you always do.  smiley

I hope you have enjoyed the weekend and ready for another week of learning.

 

Just a few reminders

 

Log into Google using your school email …….@bromet.herts.sch.uk and your password.  You then need to open google sites and the google classroom.  All your learning can be found here.  Use the tabs across the top of google sites in each subject to find you learning for the day.  All lessons for the day can also be found in the calendar at the bottom of the google sites page.

 

Join the live sessions at 9am and 1pm to say hello, ask any questions about the learning and to share some of the things you have been doing.  It’s good to keep in touch.

 

Please keep up with your times table practise.  When you are reading continue to look up unknown vocabulary, the comprehension part of reading is very important.

 

If you have any problems, post a message in the classroom stream or send an email and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Have a great week.

 

Welcome Back

Happy New Year

I hope you have had a good break.  Well, due to the current circumstances we are not able to be together, but hopefully things will change.

 

I have uploaded your work for this week onto the Nightingale Google Sites.  Remember to login into Google using your school email   ------@bromet.herts.sch.uk and your password, then go to sites.  I have also posted your home learning grid for the spring term on this page.

 

Hope to see you all soon.
