Dear Parents and Carers,
RE: Virtual learning to commence for all year groups 14.12.20-18.12.20
As many of you will be aware by now, Welsh Government announced yesterday that all secondary schools in Wales are instructed to close their doors to pupils after today for the rest of this term. This means that today will be the last day that pupils can attend school site before Christmas, with the exception of those who have been instructed to isolate.
Although the school building will be closed we will very much still be operating, but now virtually as we have done earlier this year. From Monday December 14th to Friday December 18th work will be set for all year groups to complete independently at home, and as always you can contact us if there is anything you require our support with. We will be returning to the curriculum model that we used during lockdown, with AOLE specific subjects setting work each day.
Live lessons will also be available everyday and will be delivered to each year group at the same time every day, as follows:
Year 7 – 10:00
Year 8 – 11:00
Year 9 – 12:00
Year 10 – 13:00
Year 11 – 14:00
Year 13 – as and when appropriate and agreed with pupils.
Live lessons are being promoted so pupils can ask questions immediately, rather than email/message. Teachers may also use screencastify/video or Loom to deliver the teaching and tasks, then go live to answer questions, if pupils have any.
We know that there will be mixed reactions to this news, however we are confident that our Milford Haven School family will continue to do what it does best – look after each other in tough times and ensure that we all do everything possible to protect our community.
Stay safe, and please look out for more updates on our usual platforms.
Ms CA Morris
