Dear Children,

All the staff of St Lukes have come up with a way of keeping in touch with you all. Each class now has a ‘blog’ and we are going to use it to set challenges each week and to keep in touch with you. On each blog you can upload photographs, pictures and comments. All the staff would love you to ‘talk’ to them about whatever you are doing or just to say hello and we will tell you about what we are up to too. We would like each child in our class to post on their class blog at least once a week, just so we know you are ok. If you have any questions you can also ask them on the blog. We will answer them as soon as we can.

The links to each class blog are:

For the time being Miss Byron will communicate with Kites class as well as Merlins. Feel free to comment on each other classes blog too.

As always remember how to stay safe online.

  • Don’t post photographs which give personal information away ie with your school jumper on, in front of your house number etc.
  • Think about what you are saying on the post. All the staff will check each comment before it goes ‘live’ but still if you wouldn’t say it to Mrs Littlehailes don’t say it at all.
  • Don’t give out other personal information on the posts as it might not be suitable.
  • If you unsure of anything ask a trusted adult at home.
  • If you post a comment please just use initials eg CB, not full names

In addition to the blog each of you will get a stationary pack to help you get started on the challenges we set. There are numerous web sites to access as well. Here are the ones we recommend:

  • Reading plus (year 4 and year 6)
  • Numberbots
  • Timestables rockstars
  • Hamilton Trust
  • Tables Logik
  • K& Maths
  • White Rose maths
  • Phonics play
  • Topmarks (NOT the paid app)
  • Cosmic Kids Yoga
  • BBC Supermovers
  • Go Noodle
  • School zone

There are also apps available, in particular there is one which allows you to download books for free run by the Library service called: Borrow Box. You do need to be a member of a library in order to do this. Other apps which are free are also available : Spelling Shed, Creative Book Builder, Pic Collage etc.

Finally, even though we are not all together we are still here for each other. Please use the blog to keep in touch with one another as well as staff. We will look forward to being together again soon.

With love from,

All the staff at St Luke’s CE Primary School
