Some important messages:
KNS’s approach to home learning.
The most important thing you can do is spend time with your children. Love them, play with them, talk to them, listen to them… you will not regret the time you give to your children in these uncertain times and … when you need something to do, check out the home learning grid which doesn’t need internet access and the school website which has online links.
Our approach will look like this:
Daily Facebook, website and school app updates from Stuart.
Regular teacher updates on class dojo or seesaw.
Home learning grid that has ideas for activities for parents to use as a guide.
The Ministry of Education has changed the two week holiday period. The dates are from:
The 30th of March to the 14th April.
During this time I am encouraging our teachers to take a break and spend quality time with their families.
Over the next couple of days our staff are working hard to ensure that our families have the support they need. Do you know of anyone who needs help? The amazing Ewan from Four Square, Hilcrest has already donated loaves of bread and we have organised other supplies to take to families. Please ring the school office 07 8565399 or text 0273522089 if you need to.
