During this period of online learning we are as keen as ever to ensure that pupils receive as broad an experience as possible, accepting the given limitations. With a potential increase in the amount of time spent on screens and devices, it will be even more vital to build time into the day for fresh air, exercise and other enriching activities, such as the creative arts. With this in mind, we plan to enable all pupils to strike a healthy balance during the school day through the suggested timetables.
Performing Arts Lessons
During this time we are continuing to offer our peripatetic Music lessons and LAMDA via Microsoft Teams. In the event of a clash with other lessons or activities, your child’s one-to-one lesson should take priority and children may ‘catch up’ when possible with the task missed.
With every Cognita school in the family now educating their pupils online, Cognita Competitions are a series of optional pupil competitions, designed to provide our pupils with an opportunity to connect and share their creative flair across the organisation. We want to celebrate their work and use it to reinforce the importance of our global perspective and relationships.
There will be a series of four competitions based on the following titles:
• From my window
• Sunshine after the rain
• Thank you
• Recycling for a better world
Results of each competition will be shared on the Cognita Online Community and the school/pupil will be contacted directly to present their prize from the individual competition judge. More information will be provided as the term progresses.
