Year 2 January 2021

Dear Year 2

We hope very much that you are all safe and well. We want to thank you all again for your ongoing support. We feel incredibly lucky to be working with you all during such a challenging time. We are missing seeing you all face to face – it’s just not the same. However, we are glad to have Google Classroom to keep in touch with you all. Thank you for your patience while we are getting to grips with how it works. Your feedback is most welcomed and will help us to make improvements. You will have noticed that we have been experimenting with new ways of using Google Classroom! 

One thing we are currently trialling is opening up the comments on the “Stream” for a live registration each morning until about 9.30am. Please note this is not compulsory. We know that this time will not be convenient to all of you so there is absolutely no pressure to join in. If you are able to join it would be lovely to “see” you in the comments. It’s a great way to start the day and a good opportunity for us all to say hello to each other, just as we would at school. Please be aware that any comments posted on the stream will be visible to all (unlike those comments you make when you submit assignments which are only visible to teachers). This feature will be monitored closely by the teacher in charge of Google Classroom. We hope to see you there soon!

With very best wishes from Miss Howarth, Miss Corden and Mrs Stoppani.
