Home Learning in case of School Closure or Self-Isolation
Teachers are planning a range of activities across the curriculum which you will be able to access on the new ‘Home Learning’ area; we are currently planning in two-week blocks and will update regularly where possible, particularly on those platforms, detailed below, where we can remotely set work.
It will be entirely up to you as to how you organise the home learning activities we are organising but we thought it might be helpful to suggest a daily timetable/schedule, which will reflect the way our school day is organised. Not all the activities will be computer-based; this is an opportunity for children to be creative, learn outdoors (where possible) and do things like cooking and craft and art. If you have more than one child, you may have to rotate the online activities depending on devices available.
- Reading: read together and discussion of what is read
- Maths: use our online platforms: Mangahigh/Times Tables Rock Stars/NumBots or Purple Mash, or other activities as appropriate. Remember you can put Maths into a real-life context by cooking, shopping list and receipts etc. Do look at the suggestions from class teachers to add non-platform based learning activities to your day
- Writing: teachers will be setting some specific writing tasks, but don’t forget this is a great time to get children writing postcards, diaries, book reviews and of course letters to those family members that you are not able to visit at the moment
- Spelling and Grammar: teachers will set specific tasks and suggest websites to use as well
- Topic Work (History, Geography, RE, Art & DT): teachers will suggest activities or specific projects to complete and again suggest sources of information
- Science: teachers will set tasks in line with the Science Curriculum and projects, including outdoor learning
- PE: please do make sure that you build in regular exercise opportunities; hopefully outdoor activity will be possible. You will also find links to Cosmic Yoga and iMoves in the class pages in the new area. Do also check out Super Movers from BBC Teach – a really fun and energetic way to learn times tables!
