Oxford owl reading tree

Hi there

Someone told me they can’t access the Oxford owl reading site. You have to make sure you go to the “my class login” section not the teacher log in bit which comes up at the first page.

Please do let me know if you can’t log in to anything. At least try it to see if it works. We can’t get books easily out to you, but please please do read with your kids. Many thanks all

To all our wonderful parents and carers

As a team we wanted to send you all a big thank you for everything you are doing. In this extremely challenging time we are so grateful for everything you are doing to support your child with home learning. We know it’s not easy and that there is a serious amount of juggling going on everywhere! We think you are all doing a brilliant job and we wanted to make sure you knew that.

Please do not put pressure on yourselves to complete everything we set every day. We do not expect to have everything uploaded to SeeSaw every day. What you are able to do and what fits in with your family situation is absolutely fine by us. 

It’s important to remember that the way we run year 1 at Rosendale is based around the importance of independent play and choice. It’s really important that the children continue to have as much opportunity for play whilst at home so they can engage in experiences based on their interests, strengths and developing skills. As a rough guide we would recommend approximately 1.5/2 hours of directed work at home spread out through the day with the rest of the time for free choice activities such as art, construction, reading, role play, outside time if possible, and all the other wonderful things that you are getting up to. We know that not everyone has the same resources available so do whatever works best for you and your family. We also know that lots of you are working and juggling your own workload around your family so this is a VERY rough guide.

We are all massively missing our classes and hope it won’t be too long until we are all back together. Please know that we are here to support you in any way we can. If you need anything or have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us on parentcommunications@rosendale.cc

Thanks again for all that you are doing – you are brilliant!
The year 1 team
