Cromer Bubble’s Monday Morning Blog


Hello Cromer Bubble,

Welcome to a new half term.

I hope you are all well and staying safe in these crazy times.

Please keep in touch, I love to hear from you. m.nordloh@gf.kwestacademy.com

This is a copy of the timetable we are using in class.  I thought I would include it in case you wanted to follow the same timetable.  You don’t have to, that’s one of the good things about lockdown (one of the very few good things about lockdown), you can do it in whatever order you would like.

Important Changes to Remote Learning

What will remote learning look like this half term?

  • During our first week back at school, we will continue to use the class blog to set the remote learning. At times, we will be introducing you to live lessons with a teacher; the blog will refer to these ‘live lessons’ that have been set for home learners to join. You will need to access these lessons via your TEAMs and instructions for doing this should already have been sent out. After live lessons,you will return to the blog to complete any related activities.
  • The blog should be followed in the usual way for all other lessons.

General Notes on Remote Learning

Daily lessons follow the same timetable that we use at school in the morning.

You are expected to complete the morning work every day and at least one of the afternoon subjects (found at the end of the weekly blog).

This week, please send your work in for me to check, either as a photograph or an attachment. Send it to m.nordloh@gf.kwestacademy.com

Keep in touch and please do contact me for support if you find anything unclear, confusing or difficult. I am just on the end of the phone or I can email a reply if you prefer.
