Staff from Brighton Avenue Primary School have made a video dancing to the High School Musical song ‘We’re All in This Together’ as a way of trying to put a smile on the children’s faces whilst they are not in school.
The school has made communication with families a priority while the school is closed to the majority of children. This has been through weekly welfare checks where staff can speak with children and their parents. Alongside this staff are updating the school website daily with learning tasks for the pupils to complete. These tasks can come in the form of curriculum work, games and links to educational websites with Reading Eggs and Times Tables Rock Stars being two key resources as the school holds a subscription on both. The school has also encouraged parents and carers to email any photographs of the children working on their learning tasks from home. Jacqui Kevan, Deputy Headteacher said ‘we have been overwhelmed with the response. it has enabled us to stay connected (at least virtually).’
