In this section of Gannel's Class Page you will find information for those children who are currently self-isolating. If you require paper copies of any of documents, these will be available from the school office from Thursday afternoon. (19th March).
We will also be using our Google Classroom platform to provide activities for learning online. This is a system that the children are familiar with as we have used it regularly in class over recent years. Tonight, your child will be sent home with any passwords and login details they will need to access these sites. These have been stapled to the front cover of a 'home learning book' that the children have been given today. If you are struggling to log on, please message me.
I have added a suggested timetable of daily learning (see below) to give some formality to learning. The English tasks have been allocated on Google Classroom and can be completed interactively with your child using turn it in when finished. We have discussed this in our class. Resource needed for this is the Explanation Text Features as below.
Also added - Google Classroom Gannel - Instructions how to access Google Classroom

I've put a power point of the Easter story below this message and a youtube video for a task that I would really like you to have a go at over the next couple of weeks (there are lots of other videos on you tube that might help). I would like you to choose one of the days of Holy Week and then pick a character from what happened on that day. For example, you might choose Palm Sunday and the character of the donkey, or you might choose Maundy Thursday and the character, Peter. What I would like you to do is to write the events/story of that particular day from the point of view of the character you have chosen (in the 1st person). Remember to try and put emotion into your writing and think about all the writing skills you can use, e.g. fronted adverbials and expanded noun phrases. I'll put this on google classroom too, so you can hand in your work.
To provide support to parents of children with SEN who are not in school at the moment, Cornwall Council has compiled a list of resources, activities, links and documents that will help to continue the type of work and activities done in school. The resources are laid out in categories – some by school subject and some by SEN type. On the page you will also see email addresses for SEN support services – if your child or young person has received support from these services, please feel free to contact a service directly for extra support or advice.
You can access the page on Cornwall’s Local Offer via this link https://www.supportincornwall.org.uk/kb5/cornwall/directory/advice.page?id=cRd3GfZ1suc
The page is being constantly reviewed and updated so please keep checking for more resources and information.
