Arrived at my daughter’s this morning for bubble lockdown just when online maths was being delivered. This afternoon was a discussion about rules in life, followed by consolidation of writing sentences about rules in poster form.

I’m saying a big thank you to all of our amazing educators at this difficult time.

Youngest GS is year 4 he has had no remote learning since he went back in September. 😡 The 11 y.o. has 4-5 lessons a day.
Well done that school.

Last year the DGDs were in Reception. They had some work sheets but not a great deal more. They were encouraged to put all their crafts etc from home onto the school class “wall”.

Have you contacted the school ?

Why is English full of difficult words? My DGS in year 1 wrote about Christmas today,

" I got some choc lick."

Well, I guess the logic is there!

Lucca yes DD has e-mailed them more than once. Trouble is she is not first point of contact, his father is and although they spend every other week with her the school have not responded to the e-mails and seem very reluctant to keep her informed about anything.
Father says he knows nothing either but sadly is not to be trusted.

ninathenana your DD needs to tell the school that she has time with the child and that she has difficulty communicating with the father. Most schools now recognise the difficulties and will provide dual copies of every communication. If she isn't getting it she should be. Even if the father is first emergencey contact she should get everything. It's years since I retired and we had a few parents who were provided with two copies of everything. it's easy enough to do.

nina, in my school where parents shared care, each parent received copies of any communication, letters, emails or report cards.

It was recorded on the child's personal record that both parents had to receive communications.

My grandson, nearly 12, has a full timetabled day just as if he was in school, but all online and interactive.

He doesn’t like it, because it’s all the work but none of the fun of messing around with his friends. He’s self-conscious about being seen on screen. No games either.

My five year old DGD receives her work programme just before 9am each day.
It's done at that time, because some parents were competing with each other and trying to complete tasks first the evening before.
Her parents then have to email her teacher with comments on how she has responded to the tasks.

What I found really amusing today was that, unknown to her teacher, I had written the French programme for our cluster and my wee DGD is in that cluster.

My Grandson came out with a classic the other day.
Daughter went into his room and asked how it was going with his school work.
He gave her his Kevin &Perry look and said: I'm fed up with looking at screens.
The funny part about this, is: he's a serious gamer who uses 3 screens while he's gaming 😄

Same in my school. You need to persist Ninathenanna

Oh and also each parent also got a separate parent's night appointment.

My 13 year-old GS likes to take a nap between lessons and his older brother (15), in ten minutes between classes, has a quick game of FIFA on his X-Box!
