We hope you are managing the home learning we are putting out and enjoying the changing themes. For each theme, we will provide recommended activities which can be completed alongside the educational websites/resources we have provided separately. Each topic will be adopted across the entire school and should therefore alleviate some of the pressures of home education, particularly for families who have children in more than one year group. We would like to take this opportunity to stress that our home learning packs are flexible and should be adapted to reflect the needs of your individual family, slotting in the activities suggested in a way which suits you best. Whatever you are doing as a family is more than enough, these are unprecedented times and, as has always been our outlook, the well-being of your children and family is paramount – don’t be too hard on yourselves and ensure your routine works for you.
We understand that our school community has a range of different circumstances with regard to home IT devices. We know for some families, children do not have access to a device all of the time (as it may be being used by other siblings or adults working from home) and therefore need content that can be looked at online and then completed offline. We know that some children do have access to a device all of the time and therefore benefit from online content (such as Abacus, Ed City and videos). We also know that most families do not have access to a printer so we have only included a few printable activities on our home learning. We have designed the majority of our tasks so that children/families would look at the activity online and then complete the activity using their exercise book. When you see a document online, for example the weekly Maths Challenges - questions can be opened on the screen and then answers written into exercise books. The document itself does not need printing. Equally, reading comprehension activities, can be read from the screen and then questions responded to in exercise books. The children will be somewhat used to this format as we often pose questions on our classroom screens and they respond in their work books.
Please click the links below to access the plans and resources for each week.
The planning below is for 23rd March - 3rd April 2020. This was our first response to providing home learning and we have since revised our format. The updated planning will be posted above.
At present, many of the resources and activities here are what you will have received in your pack. This area of our website is likely to be subject to change in the coming days. Please refer to your letter from Miss Rogers to help support your home learning set up.
Look after yourselves everyone and keep smiling.
