Learning at home
Homework is set on a Friday and needs to be completed by the following Wednesday. Teachers will communicate this to the class and to parents via Class Dojo. Most homework will be set on our various online learning platforms such as Purple Mash, Times Table Rock Stars and My Maths. Other homework activities may also be set.
We run a homework club after school on Tuesdays until 3.50pm for children to stay and complete their homework with support from teachers. Parents can sign their children up via the school newsletter.
Reading at home
We all know that it is so important that children learn to read fluently as quickly as possible. Fluent readers will learn more, because they can read and gain knowledge for themselves. The key to pupils’ success is their ability to read. Therefore, we really ask for parents to support in this. If you can hear your child read at least 3 times per week it will make such a huge difference to their progress.
Our remote learning offer and support information is available in the following documents
Under current Government guidelines, if your child is feeling unwell they are not required to complete any school work. Instead, they should be resting and following any advice from medical professionals.
However, not all people with COVID-19 have symptoms. If your child is not physically unwell, they should continue learning from home. Our remote learning plan is intended to ensure that children who are feeling fit and well do not fall behind in their education while they are isolating at home.
The class resources below provide a two week programme of learning for each year-group.
We suggest that you follow the suggested timetable to provide your child with a routine similar to that of the school day.
Work can be completed either on paper, online using Office tools like Microsoft Word, or can be submitted using one of the templates on Purple Mash.
Your child can either bring the work that they have completed to school when they return, or can email photographs of work completed to the School Office email with the class teacher’s name as the subject line.
We also expect children to spend at least 15-20 minutes reading or sharing a book with an adult each day while they are isolating. Children can read their school reading book, a book of their choice or an online e-book https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/free-ebooks/.
