This is us!

As we couldn’t have our popular World Café this year, we are launching ‘This Is Us,’ a project designed to celebrate the wonderful diversity of our community. You will know that Rockliffe Manor is so special because it is made up of many different cultures, ethnicities and languages, and we feel that it is vital that children talk about and are proud of their identity.

This project will be launched on Google Classroom and we invite every family to share something with us around their identity.  This could be:

  • A video of your child or family saying hello/a phrase in a home language
  • A video of story time in your home language
  • A cultural dance
  • A photo of your child in traditional dress
  • A cookery video showing your child cooking up a favourite home recipe
  • A photo/document of a recipe
  • A photo of something that your child would like to share with the class that is important to them or a tradition in the family
  • A video of your child or family member sharing a memory of the past or living in a different country
  • A video explaining a religious or cultural festival the family celebrates

These are just some ideas and you may have more! Once the class teacher receives these on Google Classroom, they will be shared as a class. It would also be lovely if we could then collate photos and videos from across the school to create one video that shows who we are as a school community. The deadline is Friday 11th December.

Parent Google Classroom ‘How to’ Workshop

Additionally, next Thursday 3rd December at 9.30am, Mr Bonhard, a parent and member of Friends of Rockliffe, has kindly offered to run a parent ‘how to’ Zoom workshop. During this video meeting, he will go through how to access Google Classroom and use it effectively. The Zoom link to this meeting will be text out to parents next week.

School Closure - Friday 18th December 2020

Following the announcement from the Government and Department for Education with regards to school closures for Christmas, please be informed that we are going to use Friday 18th December as an INSET day, and as a result of this all Inspire Partnership Schools will be closed.  The autumn term will officially end on Thursday 17th December 2020.     This decision takes into account the DfE recommendation that schools provide “six clear days” to manage any track and trace communication before Christmas Eve, as well as giving both pupil and staff families an extra day to isolate ahead of the period of relaxed restrictions over the Christmas holiday.    If your child tests positive up until the 23rd of December, please let us know by emailing info@rockliffemanor.greenwich.sch.uk. After the 23rd of December, it is the responsibility of parents to work with NHS track and trace if a child tests positive for Covid-19:     Where a pupil or staff member tests positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), having developed symptoms more than 48 hours since being in school, the school should not be contacted. Parents and carers should follow contact tracing instructions provided by NHS Test and Trace.    All children should return to school on Monday 4th January 2021 when a full and normal timetable will resume. If your child is self-isolating during the holiday period and will miss the start of school, please call the school office on the first day back after the break.  Thank you for your support and co-operation through what has been a different and challenging term. Have a lovely break and we look forward to seeing you in the new year.
