Distance Learning at Ysgol Morgan Llwyd

Dear Pupils

Just a little note from your teachers at Ysgol Morgan Llwyd to say we are thinking of you and hope you are keeping well. The situation is very difficult and it is a strange feeling that we are not seeing you on a regular basis.

We hope that everything is going well with the work on Google Classroom but, if not, don't be afraid to contact us. This is new for us too and we are all learning! Some of you have been in touch saying that you feel too much work is being set and so we have designed an example timetable that you can use should you wish to. Here are a few points to consider:

Please don't worry about all the tasks or the deadlines set. The important thing is that you do your best and arrange a work schedule that suits you. If you need more time to finish work then that's fine for us. The most important thing is that you take care of yourself during these difficult times.

Keep safe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear parents and carers

In the midst of such a unique situation we are aware that many of you are concerned for your children's education. Some parents contact to say that not enough work is being set and others to say that too much work is being set. Remember that statutory education ended temporarily in Wales on March 20 so there are no specific rules about what and how much school work children should be doing.

We hope that your children understand how to use Google Classroom by now but if not, don't be afraid to contact us. This is new for us too and so we are all learning! This document is intended to provide a suggested timetable for those who are struggling with this new way of learning. Here are a few points to consider:

Finally remember we are here to support you. The office staff are in school every day we are open. Should you require support or any help in an emergency you could either email your Head of Year (email addresses below) or telephone 07956351448.
