11.1.21   

Dear Parents, 

First of all, thank you. It continues to be a challenging time for us all and we are so grateful for your support.  

We have been working really hard at finding new ways to make the home learning easier for the children to manage independently. The work will be in Google Classroom from 8.45am each morning.  

If your child is using paper packs, please hand them in at the office each week with the child’s name on, as you collect a new one. They will be available to collect every Monday. Please phone the office to arrange collection times.  

  1. Log in to Google Classroom 

  1. Find today’s timetable under the Classwork tab 

  1. Each subject has its own folder on the Classwork page. Scroll down to find the subject you are looking for. 

  1. Open the subject folder, find today’s page and follow the instructions. The children should now be able to type their answers directly onto the documents. 

  1. When they have completed the learning, they can return the documents to us for marking by clicking the ‘turn in’ button in the top right corner. Here is a tutorial video to help.  

  1. If they click it too early, they can use the unsubmit button and complete, then ‘turn in’ again. 

  1. There is a ‘private comments’ box, where the children can message us with any questions if they get stuck. We can then message them directly. If there are a number of children stuck on the same problem, we may be able to do a video call or send a video with further instructions. 

  1. For subjects that don’t have written answers, please have the children click ‘turn in’ when they have completed it at home. 

  1. We will be keeping a log of which children are ‘turning in’ learning. 

  1. We will be able to give direct feedback on the task in the ‘private comments’ box or we may send a message to the whole class on the ‘stream’ tab. 

  1. Your teachers will be available to message in the ‘private comments’ sections between 8.30am and 3.30pm. Having this available should hopefully mean you will not need to email us the home learning any more. 

  1. Any problems, please do contact us via email or phone the school.

Chalking the doors for Epiphany...have your chalk ready for Wednesday ...
There is a custom of blessing homes on the Feast of the Epiphany (January 6) when the family gather to ask God’s blessing on their home and family life. It is an invitation for Jesus to be a daily guest in our home, our comings and goings, our conversations, our work and play, our joys and sorrows.
 
Instructions for Blessing the Home
Using the blessed chalk mark the lintel of your front door as follows:
20 + C + M + B + 21 saying:
The three Wise Men, Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar followed the star of
God’s Son who became human two thousand and twentyone years ago.
May Christ bless our home and remain with us throughout the new year. Amen.
 
Then say the following prayer:
Visit, O blessed Lord, this home with the gladness of your presence. Bless all who live or visit here with the gift of your love; and grant that we may manifest your love to each other and to all whose lives we touch. May we grow in grace and in the knowledge and love of you; guide, comfort, and strengthen us in peace, O Jesus Christ, now and for ever. Amen.
 
“Chalking the door” is a way to celebrate and physically mark the occasion of the Epiphany and God’s blessing of our lives and home. With time the chalk will fade. As it does we let the meaning of the written symbols sink into the depths of our hearts and be manifest in our words and actions.
