Update on Remote Learning

As lock-down continues and our pupils continue to be educated at home, we have updated our remote learning resources list. The revised list focuses on the key websites and resources that we, as a school, are using most. Hopefully this will support you at home to focus the children’s learning, and to prevent it becoming overwhelming.  MF Remote Learning Expectations letter - January 2021  The key learning, set by your class teacher on Google Classroom may  include: 
  • Daily reading
  • Spellings set weekly alongside year group key spelling list
  • A writing activity or Talk for Writing Home Learning Booklet. This booklet includes reading, creative activities and a writing task.  They are very children friendly and children should be able to work independently. If not, please select the previous year booklet to build confidence.  Each booklet covers two weeks of learning.
  • A ‘My Maths’ task and/or A ‘Big Maths’ task -  this will help children secure basic year group number facts, including multiplication. 
  • A piece of learning from the Home learning grid (one piece from each subject area over the course of the half term)
 Please note, The National Oak Academy website is a good resource. Each day comprises Maths, English and one other subject. Children can complete these tasks independently and recent feedback from parents has been very positive. There is no sign up & no log in, so it is very easy for children to access. 

Supplementary Resources to use at home

These further resources are entirely optional, and are not intended to overwhelm parents and carers at home during this challenging time. The list is simply there as an additional home learning support, should you wish to supplement the work sent home via your child’s class teacher.The new list is split into two sections - key websites and resources, and other resources. That way, you should be able to prioritise the learning that you give to your children at home, if you wish to more than is set by the class teacher.
