We hope you and your families are all keeping well during this difficult time. A reminder that the children's books will be available for collection from the school on Wednesday 25/3/'20 from 9am until 2pm and from 5pm until 8pm. Please do not bring the children when collecting the books and be mindful of observing social distancing protocols. The books will be individually placed in bags and labelled and left in the school yard or in the hall, depending on the weather.
Teachers will assign some work and there will be more information about this with the books.
This work is to act as a guide and not intended to create any pressure or stress on families. Do what you can.
We are not worried that your children, our pupils will regress. We intend that when we return to school we will do everything in our power to make up for the lost time. We do not wish to cause additional anxiety in any home where there may be vulnerable family members and possibly older siblings preparing for state exams.
If you are looking for extra ideas for apps or websites the website http://www.coolappsforschools.com/ is an excellent one which divides apps/websites based on age and subject area. It is run by a member of the PDST (Professional Service Development for Teachers) Digital Strategies Team.
Thank you and stay well.
The staff of Milltownpass NS.
