Orange Class

Important information for pupils in Orange Class during the COVID 19 school closure. 

 

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

Just to reiterate, all pupils have been issued with home learning packs which will cover the next four weeks of school (2 weeks either side of the Easter Break) - should we be closed for that long. There is no indication as to how long the closure will be for. Therefore, when this work has expired (week commencing 27th April) I will set more tasks on the website for children to complete. I have explained this to all children who were present on Thursday 19th March. Unfortunately, my own child showed symptoms of Covid 19 so I have had to self-isolate and missed the children on their final day. Regarding the children, I hope that they enjoy their home learning task but more importantly they stay safe and continue to follow the good habits they have shown in school.  

 

Best wishes to all children and their families of Orange class. 

 

See you soon,

 

Mr Broadbent

 

Below are copies of the Orange Class school closure letter and the three home learning charts and how to get in touch during this time period.

 

For parents and carers please email orange.class@victoria-jun.leeds.sch.uk

 

Children of orange class have had email address for a while and can email me too should they need any help over the home-learning period. I have spoken to the children about using their school email addresses to contact me not personal ones as I won't reply to those.
