Distance Learning

The weekly home learning can now be found on individual year group pages.  Use the drop down menu 'OUR LEARNING'

During the COVID-19 outbreak many of our children will be learning at home.  This page will provide resources, links to online learning opportunities and activity ideas that children can access during this time.

 

 

Home Learning

In response to the advice that schools are to close from the end of the day on Friday, we have put together some home learning packs for you to use with your children.

We fully acknowledge that the packs cannot replace the quality of learning that your child receives at school so, our focus has been on ensuring that all children can maximise their learning whilst at home.

We appreciate that this is going to be a difficult period for parents and children alike.  We understand that children and parents may need to share access to technology,  parents may be juggling supporting home learning and working remotely themselves and that many parents may be trying to support children of different ages, from different classes and indeed, different schools!

With this in mind, we have created a whole school topic for each week so that if you have more than one child from our school they are, at the least, working on the same topic! 

The packs are available on the ‘Our Learning’ tab of our school website under ‘Distance Learning’.  If you open them from the website all the activities are hyperlinked.  A paper copy of the packs along with a book to write in, a pencil and additional information for anyone unable to access the website will be provided for each pupil.

How do I use the Learning Projects?

There are currently two weeks of projects available and we will add more home learning packs as necessary.  We have looked at advice from schools in other parts of the world that have already been in ‘lockdown’ for extended periods.  They have found the following to be useful:

  • Try to keep to a routine.  Get dressed and start ‘school’ at the same time each day. 
  • Plan in rest breaks.  If you wish to mirror our school timetable (and what the children are used to) we would suggest:

 

Activity 1 (e.g. maths task)

Activity 2

(e.g. reading task)

15 minute Physical

Activity

Activity 3

(e.g. writing task)

15 minute Physical

Activity

Activity 4

(e.g. Spelling task)

Lunch Break

Learning Project

  • Differentiate between ‘learning time’ and ‘play time’.  During learning time, the TV should be off and other distractions removed.  Keep a close eye to ensure that they do not navigate away from learning tasks on devices. 

Safeguarding

Safeguarding is always high on our school priorities, and this should be considered when using IT at home.  Ensure that parental controls are set and enabled and supervise your child’s internet access.

What happens if my child finds the learning too difficult?

Our first piece of advice to parents is that ALL children find elements of learning challenging at times so try not to worry if your child becomes stuck and you cannot explain it to them. If this happens then make a note of what they found difficult and move onto another learning activity - the school will cover any misconceptions when we return. The Learning Projects which have been designed are based on the National Curriculum expectations for the year group which your child is in. It may be that your child finds the tasks set within the Learning Project for their year group too challenging, for example if they have additional learning needs. If this is the case, then we advise that your child accesses the Learning Projects for the age range below, for example a child in Year 3/4 could attempt the KS1 Learning Project or EYFS Learning Project, if this is more appropriate for them.  Tasks can be adapted to make the learning more practical and to relate it to your child’s interests.

Stay safe and we hope to see you back at school soon!

The Easter Holidays

Over the Easter Holiday we won't be providing the usual 'home learning packs' - you are on holiday after all!  But, because we know you are at home, we will be giving you and your family loads of fun ideas of things that will keep you busy and keep you having fun!  

Home Learning - Week 6

To make it easier for you to find the relevant home learning packs, they can now be found on individual year group pages.  Please use the drop-down menu 'Our Learning' to find your year group.
