Expectations and guidance for home learning
Dear Parents and Carers
We fully recognise that you are not teachers and that it can be challenging to complete home learning so we would like to say thank you for supporting us wholeheartedly during these difficult times. It is our aim that home learning is a smooth, supportive process for both you and your child(ren).
In the case of another national lockdown, we will continue to use Google Classrooms to deliver our learning. We will also be providing 90 minutes of live teaching via Google Classroom to every child who is working from home. Information will be sent to you from your class teachers with details.
School expectations and guidance outlining home learning is below.
Children can submit work to their class teacher via Google Classroom. Teachers will feedback weekly to children. If you have any concerns around your child’s work, you can contact the class teacher via Dojo.
In addition to the live lessons and work provided by the class teacher, the remote learning documents attached below are some additional resources the children could use alongside their learning. It contains links to online videos that can be used to support your child's learning.
Remote Learning - during a lockdown
- 30 minutes of a reading activity – this could be reading to an adult, reading alone, using bug club or following a link in the reading section of your year group’s document completing an activity.
- 1 hour - Daily English task - some of the learning is likely to be via video with the class teacher. See your year group overview for a progression of lessons. (Please ensure that one day is a grammar focus.)
- 1 hour – Daily maths task - some of the learning is likely to be via video with the class teacher. See your year group overview for a progression of lessons. (Please use the multiplication, addition, subtraction and times table links on the year group overview as starter activities.)
