School Closure suggested Home Learning

Summer term letter from Headteacher and FAQ around closure

*************************************************************

Updated content:  we have added an assembly from the NSPCC around their 'Speak Out, Stay Safe' campaign, which we would like all children to watch - please see below:

The NSPCC has produced a virtual school assembly on 5 June 2020. The assembly, aimed at children aged 7-11 years old and run in partnership with the Department for Education (DfE), features an introduction from Ant and Dec and highlights from the NSPCC Speak out. Stay safe. programme. The assembly focusses on anxiety, including the worries that children are facing during the coronavirus crisis, why they may feel anxious or worried and ways they can be supported.

You can find the NPSCC Assembly here

We would recommend a daily timetable of:

  • Reading - 20 minutes (one vocabulary and one reading lesson on Reading Plus)
  • Reading reflection (questions, comments or drawing about what they have read) - 10 minutes
  • Times table Rockstars (or Doodle Maths if signed up)  - 20 minutes
  • 5 -a - day SPaG/Maths - set by year teams a session a day - around 5 - 10 minutes

    Weekly learning:
  • Year group Writing/Maths learning - 3 sessions (of each) a week
  • Project work -  you can choose an activity from year group project grids which are on the year group homelearing pages or work as a family through the subject challenges below. These are here for you to access as much or little as you wish weekly, to support in wider curriculum activities to learn whilst at home. 
  • Spelling practice (the normal half-termly words and challenges set by year groups) - 20 minutes

    If you are looking for a daily schedule and online lessons 'taught' click here for examples of online platforms that can be used. 

Please do not feel that children should be learning at home for 6 hours a day! Home learning works differently as it is generally 1:1, so it is more intensive and can therefore be done in smaller bursts. Please take the opportunity to enjoy time together, and to relax together as well, if you can. It is also a great opportunity for children to do some self-directed learning if they wish - a project on dinosaurs, fashion, Minecraft, a famous athlete/explorer/performer/inventor, or a different culture: it's all learning.

Below is a grid of challenges and fun activities that have been created by the subject leads in school for you to explore if you would like to undertake a different challenge! None of these are compulsory - just here to support in a wider range of things to do. Click on the picture to find the activities.
