Instrumental Music Lessons (Pre-Prep)
Children will continue to receive these 1:1 sessions via Microsoft Teams during normal school hours. You will be sent an email from your peripatetic teacher with an invite to join the Microsoft Teams session at an agreed time. You/your named adult carer will be required to join the session with your child at the start of the allotted time. Your child’s peripatetic teacher will email you a document outlining our guidance which you must read prior to any lessons taking place. Additionally:
· Sessions must only take place if you/your named adult carer are present and sighted with your child.
· Sessions will be recorded on Microsoft Teams, both to safeguard your child, you/your named adult carer, and the session facilitator. By agreeing to participate in each session, you give your consent to the recording of the session.
· Your child’s peri teacher will notify your child’s class teacher the day of your child’s planned session, including time and duration at the beginning of each week. You will be required to email confirmation to the peri teacher that you ‘have read and understood this protocol’ prior to taking part in the first session.
Cognita Home Games
In the absence of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the Cognita Home Games will be a great way of connecting, competing and celebrating through physical endeavour. All schools will be invited to participate in these games in the week of May 18-22nd.
The Games will start with an opening ceremony and the Cognita Creed. Each day will include one fitness and one skill event for every age group (including parents!) for 4 days, with the closing ceremony and results announced on the 5th day.
The standards will be circulated at the end of April giving pupils and families the chance to train for their selected events, and examples might include things like the plank or juggling! It will be an opportunity for the children to represent themselves, their schools and their countries with passion and pride and enjoy the way sport can bring our global community together to be happier and healthier.
We will send out further details about how to enter by the beginning of May.
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 three competitions based on the following titles:
1. From my window
2. Thank you
3. 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.
