Resilience Class

Hello Resilience Class,

We hope you are all well and keeping safe.  It is very strange not being in school and you have all had to change the way you learn so we wanted to take this opportunity to say well done.

We know this is a difficult time for everyone and lots of you are missing school and your friends. We are missing you too, especially our morning munch discussions.  It has been lovely to speak to most of you each week and hear about all the home learning you have been doing.  We have been particularly impressed with those of you who have been helping around the house and cooking!   

Here is a reminder of what you can do at home to earn shillings:

  • RM Maths
  • Education City
  • Active Learn – please answer the questions as well
  • 2 pages of each of your workbooks
  • PE
  • Any additional writing or maths
  • Completing an activity on the class blog
  • Art
  • Helping around the house and cooking
  • Extra learning

Each day your parent will receive a text to update them on the online learning you have done.  On Friday, your total shillings earned will be calculated with bonuses for extra effort with learning.  There will also be a Head Teacher award given out each week to one child from the class, this will be announced on Twitter (on Beormund School Website).

Some of you have been sent an updated timetable to help you organise your home learning, we hope you found this useful.

We are aware and understand that you may have some difficult days where you complete less academic learning.  For these difficult times, we suggest trying some of the mindfulness activities in class blog and helping around the house.  You could also discuss this during our telephone conversations. 

If you have any questions or would like to send in a photo of your home learning, please use the class email address below.

Best wishes.
