News from MHS

Dear Parent/Carer,

I hope that this finds you and your family well.

This unusual Summer Term seems to have got off to a good start.  Staff are extremely grateful for your support with home learning.  We are very aware that this can be challenging at times and while students should, of course, aim to complete all of the work that has been set, we fully understand that this may not always be possible.  Please do what is reasonable for your family to manage each day.

If there is time at the end of the school day, it can be helpful for an adult or older sibling to sit down with your child  and ask them questions about what they have learnt.  This is more likely to embed the learning into their long-term memory this way . If they cannot remember, ask them to go back over the work the next day and try to ask them the questions again.  Examples of questions which could be asked in any subject are:

• What are the three most important things you learnt in…?

• Can you finish the sentence “Today I have learnt …”  

• Give me an example of …. (related to a specific topic)

If your child does not have access to a computer at home and you have not already made us aware of this, please contact the school office on 260101.

School remains open each day for the children of key workers and a small number of other students.  Please note, however, that we will be closed on Friday, 8 May (Bank Holiday).

Yours sincerely,

Miss Mead

Headteacher
